Welcome to Class 3
Here you will find out about the term's homework and spellings, information about what we are learning in class, as well as photographs of us enjoying our time at school. We will also add any upcoming events, trips or newsletters that the children will be taking part
in. We hope you enjoy reading our class page.
We hope that you all had a fantastic summer and are ready to get stuck into the exciting term ahead. Our topic this term will be World Wars; we will initially be finding out about World War I, followed by World War II. We will locate areas affected by war on maps and identify routes taken by the soldiers. Our literacy topic is War Horse which fits perfectly with the topic. In Science we will be learning about sound; we will identify how sounds are made and how distance affects sound.
We have got some great sports coaches in school at the moment so the children will be very active throughout the week. In Class 3 this will include: karate, football and multi-skills.
Star of the Week
Star of the Week in Class 3 this week is Alice. Alice has made a great start to the Autumn term; she has been positive, kind, hard-working and responsible.
Homework and Spellings
Homework will be given out on a Friday and handed in on the following Wednesday.
Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday. Children in year 4 will be given spellings from the Year 3/4 list and children from year 5/6 will be given spellings from the year 5/6 list.
Some of the children will have experienced these spellings last year however repeating these will allow the children to become more confident at spelling these words.
The spellings are provided below, the date above the spellings list is the date on which the spellings will be tested.
Reading at Home
The children are expected to read at home at least three times a week. Reading diaries will be handed in and checked on a Monday. If they have read five times in a week they will receive two Dojo points and if they have read seven times they will receive three Dojo points.
The children will be given a short mathematics test every Friday. This will sometimes include times-tables however it may also include addition, subtraction and division questions. In order to answer the multiplication and division questions correctly I would like the children to regularly practice times-tables at home. The children will be tested on these at last once every half term.
Roald Dahl Week
While some lucky children in Class 3 are away on their trip to France the rest of us will be celebrating Roald Dahl's marvellous work. We will be studying James and the Giant Peach. The focus will be on the wonderful vocabulary, sentence structure and characterisation used by Roald Dahl.
