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 Summer break and are ready to get stuck into the next few weeks. Our topic this half term will be Potions. We'll learn about mysterious potions, write safety labels and sort everyday items into solids, liquids and gases. We'll design fabulous bottles for magical potions and become super scientists. Some of the texts that we will be using are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet and George's Marvellous Medicine.
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.
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.
