Class 3 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Class 3
The Way, The Truth and The Life
Celebrating Easter and Pentecost
We are developing knowledge and understanding of Easter and Pentecost through the Story of Emmaus and through Acts 2: 1-13 (Pentecost). We reflect on the celebration of new life and on the signs and symbols of the Easter season as well as reflecting on the importance of belief through the story of ‘Doubting Thomas’. We learn about the symbols and fruits of the Holy Spirit and reflect on how the Holy Spirit helps us to live their lives.
Our school prayers can be found in the file section of our class page.
A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny. When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also lead her home and to her heart's desire? We have the opportunity to develop our narrative writing skills in this unit.
We will be continuing our fractions topic during this half term. Children will be building on their previous learning to find fractions of amounts and equivalent fractions. We will also be adding and subtracting fractions.
After completing the fractions topic, we will be moving on to ‘time’. Children will recap o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past. We will then continue to learn to tell the time to every minute as well as learning am and pm. We will also be finding the duration.
We are encouraged to practise our times tables daily. Our focus this half term will be the 4 and 8 times tables.
Please see the 'Half term overview' document for full curriculum coverage this half term.
This half term we will be going swimming on a Wednesday. Please remember to bring in a swimming costume/ trunks and a towel. Long hair should be tied back and earrings removed. Swimming caps can be worn although this is not compulsory. Parental permission is needed to wear goggles (this can be done on your school spider account).
Our P.E. day will be a Wednesday 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 is set weekly via Google Classroom. Homework is set on a Thursday to be submitted on by the Monday.
Spellings are set on Google Classroom on a Monday to 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 that we read to adults as much as possible. Please try to read with your child for 10 minutes every day. Books can be changed once we 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 we are encouraged 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.
