Reading in Class 3

Hello

This morning I have been checking over home-school contact books to see that they are being used correctly. I have noticed that many children are not reading daily and are not recording what they have read. Please can you make sure that children read at home regually and their book is signed.

Thank you

Miss Lean

Week 10

Hi everyone

This week has been another busy one!

We have been working on our investigation skills in maths, completing challenge cards and investigating problems. It has been very fun and quite tricky! In PE we have been learning how to pass and receive the ball in football, we are getting much better at it! During computing we have been using the programme "Scratch" to make characters move, speak and make noises. Today we all came to school dressed as heroes for children in need.

Have a great weekend

Week 6

Hello everyone

On Monday we thought about what makes a good friend and wrote friendship recipes.

On Thursday we started planning our animal masks. We had to choose an animal and think about what materials we would use to decorate it. Stanley chose a bird and a snake.

On Friday we made friendship bunting. We had to write a pledge on the bunting. Bens pledge was "I pledge to always stand up for my friends"

 

Thank you for reading our blog. We hope you enjoyed it.

Week 5

Hello everyone

Thank you for coming to Harvest Festival this morning. I was very proud of class 3's performance and I could tell they had tried hard to learn their words.

This week we have been reading The Shamans Apprentice in English, it is written by the same author as The Great Kapok Tree. It is helping us learn more about the rainforest. In maths we have been investigating using our knowledge of addition and subtraction. In PE we have continued to work on our netball skills. We have been throwing, catching and trying not to move with the ball.

Our class end of day book is The Clumsies, we finished it this week and can't wait to read the next in the series, The Clumsies make a mess at the seaside!

Reminders:

Homework this week is very important as it is going to be used to help with our English lessons next week. Please make sure that it is complete and returned to school on Monday.

Ties: Once children are in the juniors they are expected to have a normal tie, not an elasticated one. I have reminded the children of this as the weeks have passed, but some children are still wearing elasticated ties. Please ensure your child knows how to do their tie up and take it off for PE sessions. Thank you.

Coats and jumpers: As the weather is turning colder and wetter, please make sure your child has a coat in school.

Thank you

Miss Lean

Harvest Festival words

Hello

Class 3's homework this Friday was to learn a poem for Harvest Festival. Please encourage your child to rehearse the poem again as during our whole school rehearsal this afternoon there were many children who had forgotten the words. I want Class 3 to be at their very best for our first Church service of the year.

Thank you for your support

Week 3!

Hello

This week Class 3 have been learning about the famous artist Henri Rousseau, the children studied some of his paintings and tried to recreate them. Henri liked to paint rainforest scenes, he used repeated patterns and painted light skies with dark jungles. In Math Class 3 learnt how to add up using a written method and will be moving on to subtraction next week. 

Reminders:

- Class 3 are very excited about our rainforest trip which is coming soon. All children should have received a letter about the day. 

- Spellings: spellings are given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday.

On Monday morning the children are given time to write their spellings into their home/school contact books and to check they have spelt them correctly. It is very important that the children take the time to do this carefully and neatly. The expectation in key stage 2 is that they do this independently, please encourage your child to come and have a chat to me if they are finding copying from the board tricky as there are things I can put in place to help them. 

- Homework:

Maths: given out Wednesday and due in Friday

English/topic: given out Friday and due in Monday

I am really pleased with how Class 3 have settled, they are rising to the challenge and working hard. Keep it up! Hopefully I will see many of you for open session on Monday from 3.30-6.30, where you will have a chance to look around the classroom and school.

Week 2 in Class 3

Hello everyone

We have finished our first full week in class 3 and it has been very busy! We are all still getting used to the new routines.

In maths this week we learnt about the < and > signs. We played a game with a partner comparing numbers. We had to create 2, 3, or 4 digit numbers and use the correct sign to make a number sentence.

Here is an example:

329 > 213- Three hundred and twenty nine is greater than two hundred and thirteen

In literacy we have been working on correctly punctuating sentences and using capital letters where they belong. We have been given homework on this to complete by Monday.

We continued with our topic of The Rainforest this week. We learnt about the different layers and the plants and animals that live in each layer. The layers are:

1.       The emergent layer

2.       The canopy

3.       The understory

4.       The forest floor

Reminders:

·         Please can everyone make sure their homework is handed in on time. Now we are year 3 and 4 children it is our responsibility to make sure it is complete and given in to Miss Lean.

·         All children need to bring in a snack for break and a water bottle to stay hydrated.

Miss Lean says we are all working very hard and to keep it up!

Thank you for reading our blog! Have a restful weekend

Welcome to Class 3

Hello Everyone

Welcome to our blog. This year we are going to be giving you weekly updates from Class 3.

It has been a busy few days already, Miss Lean told us that our topic this term is The Rainforest and we have already started learning about it!

In art we learnt how to draw rainforest animals by using simple shapes to start. We drew a frog, a gorilla and many more animals.

In maths we completed a speedy tables sheet, Class 3 really need to try hard to learn times tables this year. We are going to be working hard on this in class and at home.

Everyone has a reading book to take home now and today we chose our library books. Miss Lean has also given us our first piece of homework! It is in our homework books, but needs to be completed on a separate piece of paper.

A quick reminder, please can Class 3 make sure they bring a snack and a drink of water every day. Miss Lean says it is very important to stay focussed and hydrated.

Thank you for reading our blog.

A busy week in Class 3

Hello

We have had a very fun and busy week in class 3, the highlight being Arts days. Class 3 were able to make clay models with Mrs Carter, got taught sewing with Mrs Racher, printed pictures with Mrs Keech, made junk model light houses with Miss Patston and draw charcoal drawings with Mrs Proctor. They had a fantastic time, I’m sure you have heard all about it.

Today we have written our class assembly, your child should have come home with their words to learn as homework. Please help them rehearse their words, so they are confident next week.

Here is a link to the song the children need to learn for our assembly to:

A hardworking half term!

Hello

 

Class 3 are looking forward to half term, after a long, hardworking 8 weeks in school. Everyone has produced fantastic work and tried very hard.

 

In literacy we have written a myth, created a kenning poem and used ICT to type up our non-chronological reports. Ask your child what their report was about, you may find out some interesting facts you didn’t already know.

 

In maths we have covered a vast amount of topics, a very important topic we learnt about was how to add and subtract using a written method. Everyone can know do this! Class 3 are still trying hard to learn their times tables. Ask your child which tables they need to learn and if you have a chance help them with learning them over half term.

 

We have thoroughly enjoyed our Romans topic and will be continuing with this after half term. Today we learnt about Boudicca and the revolt, Class 3 found this very exciting.

 

Have a restful half term and see you soon, ready for the countdown to Christmas!
