Class 3 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Class 3

Teacher:  Miss McVeigh

 

Our Learning

Our topic for this term is The Stone Age. We will have a historical focus and we will be thinking about changes in Britain from Stone Age to Iron Age.

Our English lessons are based around the book, 'Stone Age Boy'. This is about a boy who falls down a hole one day and ends up travelling back in time to The Stone Age. We will be using facts that we learn in this book and through research in our topic, to create informative Non-Chronological Reports about this period. 

 

In guided reading, our text is 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. Through our study of this text, we will be focusing on the key areas of vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and summarising. 

 

 

Black History Month

As October is Black History Month, Class 3 are reading the book, "Who is Nelson Mandela?" by Pam Pollack and Meg Belviso. We will be learning about how as a child, Nelson Mandela dremt of changing South Africa, and how as a man he was able to change the world.

The Way, The Truth and The Life

Our topic this half term is 'The Christian Family.' We will think about what is means to be part of a family and we will listen to more stories about Jesus and his family. We look at a painting of Jesus in The Temple with his parents, titled 'Christ in The Temple' by Simone Martini and we will recreate our own modern day examples. We will learn more about the sacrament of Baptism and how a person becomes a member of the Christian family when they are baptised. 

 

Maths

Our first Maths focus for this term is Multiplication and Divison. We will be working on multiples of 3, 4 and 8 and we will practice developing our skills in fluency, reasoning and problem solving. We will be regularly 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.

Spellings will be given out on a Friday and will be tested the following Friday.

Reading 

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 as and when they are ready to. They should place their book in the reading basket in class when it is ready to be changed. 

 

Communication

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.
