Welcome to Class 3's page!
Our class teacher is Mrs Mead and we are lucky to be supported by Miss Bebbington (LSA).
PE lessons: It is important that pupils have their PE kit in school at all times, as they will not be able to participate in lessons without it. It is advisable to have to have a pair of black or navy jogging bottoms or leggings in their PE kit, especially for the colder months. A pair of old trainers is also essential because the pupils will take part in a range of outdoor activities, some of which will take place on the school field. Long hair will need to be tied back and earrings removed for your child’s safety during PE lessons. Please ensure all kit is fully labelled. During this half term, Class 3’s PE lessons will generally take place on Mondays and Thursdays but we may do outdoor PE on other days depending on the weather!
Wild tribe: We will be doing wild tribe every Tuesday afternoon from October half term until Christmas. Please ensure that your child has their wild tribe kit every Tuesday but that it goes home in between as it will probably be wet and muddy!
Home learning: Home learning will be set through a home learning menu linked to our curriculum themes. The menu includes English, Maths and topic based learning and will be set every time we have a new theme (roughly every 4 to 6 weeks). The menu includes activities children can do independently and activities that can be completed as a family. Children are expected to do one English and one Maths activity every week. They are also expected to complete one theme based activity by the end of that block (the date is written at the top of the home learning menu). It is expected a child in year 3 will spend a suggestion of 15-20 minutes a night on homework.
Reading: Children should read every evening and to an adult at least once a week. Take time to talk about books at home as reading is so very important. Each child has a reading record, where they should keep a record of what they are reading. Please comment on your child’s progress with reading in their reading record when you have heard them read.
Spellings: In the front of your child’s reading record and in their homework books there is a list of the Year 3/4 spellings which your child is expected to read and write by the end of Year 4. We encourage children to practice these at home.
Times tables: Children should also be practicing times tables everyday. Timetables are hugely important in almost every area of Maths and quick recall of multiplication facts will support your child greatly with their mathematical automacy. Every Friday they take part in the 'Around the World Challenge' where they are given 3 minutes to answer a set number of questions. Different countries relate to different multiplication tables. Your child should know which multiplication tables they should be practicing but please don't hesitate to ask if you are unsure.
Lastly, it is vitally important that your child brings in a water bottle every day which is clearly labelled - as well as a sunhat and sun cream on hot days.
Our online class page will be kept as up-to-date as possible, with photographs uploaded so you can see what we are getting up to! Please feel free to also have a look at our half-term overview to find out about some of the learning that your child will be partaking in.
If you have any questions, queries or problems throughout the year then please feel free to come and see one of us at the end of the school day.
Thank you for your support
Mrs Mead and Miss Bebbington
