Welcome to Class 3.
We are looking forward to working hard, having fun and learning lots of new things.
Class 3's Teacher: Mrs Price
Class 3's TA: Mr Jones
On a Tuesday and Thursday we will be sharing poetry during class reading time. It would be really nice if children would bring in a poem they would like to share with the rest of the class.
Our Maths themes this half term for our Y5 children are place value, addition and subtraction and statistics. Our Maths themes for our Y6 children are place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In addition, we also use TT Rockstars which can be accessed from home and is a fun way to learn and improve their times tables knowledge.
This term we are writing stories in a similar style to those written by Jeremy Strong, biographies, autobiographies, stories from other cultures and non-chronological reports.
Each day on the class page there will be a question which the children should discuss at home. The question relates to the genre we are covering at that time and forms part of the children's morning work.
Our class text this half term is Freedom by Catherine Johnson. This text is recommended to support our topic. We will also use this text during guided reading when appropriate. In addition, children are expected to read each day at home and record this in their reading diary.
Children will continue to learn spelling rules using the Read, Write, Inc program.
Class 3 will have PE on a Thursday afternoon.
We will be enjoying music lessons on a Tuesday with the Wider Opportunities Scheme with each child learning how to play a brass instrument which will be brought home each week for the children to practice.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday. Each week children will have a Maths and English piece to complete in their homework book.
Black History Month
Below is a link to the BBC Bitesize website looking at, and teaching us about, Black History Month. Black History month is usually October, but our topic celebrates Black Britons later in the autumn term. Feel free to take a look at home before then.
Throughout each day we will also be taking part in fun activities such as the Daily Mile and Go Noodle which the children really enjoy. If you have any questions please speak to me at the end of the day or contact the school office to make an appointment.
