Class Teachers: Mrs Parker and Mrs Parker Welcome to Class 3. This is the start of your journey through Key Stage 2. We mostly aim for a cross-curricular approach to learning so that skills are transferable.
Summer Term With Year 3 working from home at the moment our learning is looking a bit different to how it does normally. We are completing our daily maths and English tasks as well as learning our times tables, working on our KIRFS (time) and reading daily. We are also completing weekly activities related to our theme and science. Our theme is entitled 'Reign Over Us' and is a whistle-stop tour through British history from Edward the Confessor to the present day. We will look at significant monarchs and the changes that took place during their reigns that have shaped the country we live in today.
Although we are missing being at school we are working really hard and have produced some fantastic work. Have a look at the links to see some of the lovely work we've received.
We value the work parents do to support their child's work through homework. In Class 3 children should be doing approximately, 15-20 minutes per night. We would expect that between 10 and 15 minutes of this would be spent reading and discussing books with your child. This leaves some time to practice other key skills such as spellings, sentence work or number skills as well as research tasks.
Forest School / outdoor learning - Every other Friday - please check the classroom door for the dates . If possible, please can children leave a pair of wellies in school so that we can go outside often as possible without getting their school shoes and socks soggy! Please ensure long legs and arms are still included to protect their skin when outside.
P.E. – Swimming will start again on Thursday 27th February. Meanwhile PE lessons will continue to be carried out in school on a Thursday afternoon. Homework will be given on Thursday and will need to be returned the following Monday.
Reading percentages are calculated on a Thursday. Please ensure diaries are up to date and reading has taken place at home, at least three times each week.
