Class 3 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class 3
Teacher: Mr Taylor
The Way, The Truth and The Life
Our topic this half term is 'Celebrating Easter and Pentecost.' The children will learn that God the Father raised Jesus from the dead on Easter Sunday. They will learn that because Jesus rose from the dead we too will rise from the dead. They will hear the story of the appearance of Jesus on the road to Emmaus and to Thomas. They will also hear and reflect on the story of the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
Our topic for this term is Journey's, Voyages and Discoveries. We will be thinking about places we have visited that may be a long way away. We will also be looking at voyages, journeys and discoveries that have happened a long time ago including those from the earliest civilizations.
Our English lessons are based around the book, 'Journey by Aaron Becker '. This book packed with amazing illustrations. It is about a a girl who finds a magical crayon, draws a magical door and escapes into a world of wonder. As there are no words, it provides opportunities for discussions and imaginative ideas to develop. We will be going on our own journey as we explore this together, writing our own ideas to accompany this.
Our Maths focus for this term will begin with Fractions. Initially we will be reviewing what fractions we already know including halves, quarters and thirds. We will be practicing and developing our skills in fluency, reasoning and problem solving. We will be working out fractions of shapes numbers and pictures using a variety methods. These will include the bar model and will work towards the children solving worded problems.
We will still be continuing working on our times tables. By the end of Year 3, children should know their 3, 4 and 8 times table, as well as their 2, 5 and 10 multiplication and related division facts. Please encourage your child to practice recalling their facts at home, and regularly use their log in for Times Table Rockstars.
Our P.E. day is a Monday and children should come to school in their PE kit. School hoodies and jogging bottoms can be purchased online with school uniform. Long hair should be tied back and earrings are not allowed to be worn during P.E. lessons. This half term we will be undertaking Chance to Shine Cricket Coaching with Andy from Cheshire Cricket Board. This is a great opportunity to build up new skills, use new equipment and join in team games.
Set weekly via Google Classroom. Homework is set on a Thursday to be submitted on by the Monday.

We encourage pupils to explore these at home. All pupils have individual log in details.
It is important for children to read to adults as much as possible. Try to read with your child for 10 minutes each day. It is beneficial for the children to read a range of genres and to practice comprehension questions about a variety of texts. Children can change their books on a Monday and a Thursday. Parents can also leave comments via the parents section on the website.
All books returned to school are quarantined before being reissued to pupils.
I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Please make an appointment through the school office, should you want to arrange a meeting.
