Welcome back Class 3!
Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a great break and are ready for the new school year.
Our new topic this term will be Crime and Punishment, in science we will be looking at Keeping Healthy this half term and Rocks and Fossils next half term.
Keep your eyes on this page if you want to keep up to date with all the great stuff that will be going on in our class.
REMEMBER to download our school app and select class 3 in the settings for regular updates.
Now that you are in year 3, there is a lot more responsibility on you. It is up to you to make sure that letters and messages go home and that your kit is in school every day.
We will be having 2 PE lessons a week and normally they are on Monday and Friday, but they could be on any day so you will need your full PE kit in school every day. We will be going swimming every Friday this term which is really exciting, but even more important that everyone has the correct kit on the correct day, boys need trunks not baggy shorts. We will need adult helpers so if you are available please come and speak to me about helping out.
You'll also need to have your reading books in school every day too. There are books in the class library which you can use or you can read something from home if you prefer. You can change your book at the start of any day or break time if you forget.
We aim to hear every child read at least once a week in a group.
Homework and Spellings
I will set homework of spellings and times tables most weeks. If you are absent then please contact me so that you don't miss out when it comes to the test. Menu homework will continue and will be handed out soon.
One of the main drives in spelling will be learning all the spellings on the year 3/4 list. We also want you to be able to use them in your work too. Times table tests are weekly, please use the website times table rock stars to support your child.
Good to be Green continues and hopefully we will have lots of gold card too. For those extra special efforts in class there are platinum cards to be earned.
Consequences of not following the rules (which I am sure won't happen to any of you) are also simple. We still have yellow warning cards and red consequence card. If a child gets a red card they will have to miss the next break time (which could be the next day). A child may also be asked to work in another environment in order to help him or her to calm down away from a situation or do a physical activity to help burn off any excess energy.
This year we will have support from Mrs Cannings Mrs Whitt, and Miss Jackson.
