Welcome to Class 3
Here you will find out about 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 and trips that the children will be taking part
in. We hope you enjoy reading our class page.
Autumn Term 2019
We hope that you all had a fantastic Autumn break and are ready to get stuck into the next few weeks. Our topic this half term will be Peasants, Princes and Pestilence. At the start of this half term, we’ll meet a strange character and use a range of source materials to research the symptoms of the Black Death. Our geography skills will help us understand how the black death came to Britain and why it spread so quickly. We’ll investigate the effects of bacteria on the human body and find out about disgusting and dangerous plague ‘cures’. Furthermore, we’ll learn about different social classes, understand the reasons for the Peasants’ Revolt, take part in a mock battle and learn what it was like to be a knight.
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, athletics and multi-skills.
Children in Class 3 are expected to read at least five times a week, practice their spelling and times tables.
Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday. Children will be put into spelling groups so will be aware of which spellings they need to practice. 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 children in Class 3 can also complete optional homework related to our topic.
Reading at Home
The children are expected to read at home at least five 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 (every day) 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.
Children can now log on to Times Tables Rock Stars.
