General reminders

-The children will be doing P.E on Monday and Games on Thursday. Please can you make sure that your child’s kit is in school and that all items are clearly labelled. It is important that your child has an outdoor kit, especially in the colder months. Please can no jewellery be worn on these days!

- In Class 3 your child will be encouraged to be more independent, so can we ask that any letters or reply slips are left in your child’s book bag- they will be responsible for emptying it each morning.

-Just to remind you that we do not have snack in Key Stage 1, the children have fruit as a part of the National Fruit Scheme. This is free of charge.

Reading

Your child will have brought their reading book home tonight. Can we ask that their reading packet is sent into school every day. We have lots of helpers in Class 3 so your child may be heard reading any day of the week. Please help your child by reading with them at home on a daily basis and record any comments, as usual in the diary.

Class 3’s Learning Journey

Summer Term 2019         

Miss Bailey

         

RE

This term we will be looking at three topics within Religious Education.

Pentecost - Holidays and Holydays

Reconciliation – Being Sorry

Universal Church - Neighbours

English

During their English lessons the children will read and write about the Great Fire of London and Meerkat Mail, which are our topics for the summer term.

They will create fact files, write letters and newspaper articles as well as writing diary entries and their own postcards.

We are going to be looking at spellings, punctuation and grammar, such as adjectives, nouns, verbs and their features.

Mathematics

In Mathematics the children will continue to develop their understanding of number & calculations. They will consolidate their understanding of place value as it is expected that they will be able to read, order & write numbers up to 100 by the end of Year 1. The children will be encouraged to apply their knowledge to ‘real life’ situations involving money and measures. This term we will be focusing on number patterns. Children will be expected to count on and back in steps of 2, 5 and 10.

Computing

Throughout the summer term, the children will be working on creating their own survey and using graphs to record and produce data. They will then answer simple questions, using the information they have collected.

Welcome to Class 3
I am committed to working together with you to ensure that your child has a happy and successful experience during their time at school. We know that children learn best when parents and staff work together to encourage and support their learning.

Homework

Monday- Spellings will come home on a Monday, after October half term).

Friday- Handwriting, English & Mathematics based homework will come home on a Friday, please can it be returned by Thursday.

If you have any questions, please do come and ask.

Thank you!

 We will continue with our ‘Seasonal Change’ work, looking at ‘summer’.

Topic

In Topic we will be looking at the Great Fire of London and its place in history. We will create our own ideas of what life was like during this period. In Geography we will be learning about whether Meerkats could live in the North Pole.

This term we will be baking too! Making our own bread and writing the instructions for how we did it.

P.E

P.E will be on Mondays and Games on Thursdays.

During this term the children will be developing their gymnastic skills through transferring their weight from one body part to another both on the floor and using apparatus. The children will be completing dance lessons exploring movement ideas. As summer approaches they will improve their basic game-playing skills. They will prepare for sports day by learning to work as a team.
