Class 3 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Class 3
Teacher: Miss Burns
The Way, The Truth and The Life
Our topic this half is Christian Family. The children will be exploring and reflecting upon what it means to be part of the Church family. They will understand that once we join the Christian family, we receive the sacrament of baptism as a way of being welcomed into the church and beginning our life journey without sin. The children will make links between baptism and what it tells Christians about living a Christian life.
Our topic for this half term is 'Where Land Meets Sea'. The children will be focusing on coastal regions, exploring the features of coasts and the seas surrounding them. The children will understand that coasts are ever-changing due to different types of erosion. They will also learn about the water cycle and be able to explain this process.
Our English lessons are based around the book, 'Seal Surfer' by Michael Foreman. This book follows the friendship between a baby seal and young boy who witnesses its birth when out walking on the cliffs with his grandfather. The children will have the opportunity to develop their writing skills through letter writing.
In Maths, children will be building on their knowledge of place value at the beginning of the term, and using this knowledge to complete addition and subtraction calculations. Children will continue to use the written methods of addition and subtraction.
Please see the 'Half term overview' document for full curriculum coverage this half term.
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.
Homework will be set weekly via Google Classroom. Homework is set on a Thursday to be submitted on by the Monday.
Spellings will be given out on a Monday and children will be tested the following Monday. The spellings will be taken from the Year 3 and 4 statutory word list and words that are relevant to our writing that week. The number of spellings may vary each week.
It is important for children to read to adults as much as possible. Please try to read with your child for 10 minutes every day. Children can change their books once they have read them at home. Please leave comments via the parents section on the website.
We will continue to work on our times tables in class but encourage children to practise their recall at home by regularly using Timestables Rockstars.
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.
