Class 3

Welcome to Class 3!

The teacher in Class 3 is Miss Bailey. 

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.

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.

RE

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

Special People: This topic will help us to look at the people that are special to us and people that are special in Church.

Meals This topic will look at Eucharist in Church and how it is a way of saying thank you. We will also talk about the very special meal that Jesus had, the ‘Last Supper’.

Growing This topic will look at how Lent is a time to change and start a new in preparation of Jesus’ resurrection. We will discover that each new day gives us the chance to do something good for others.

English

During their English lessons the children will read and write stories based on stories such as Bog Baby and Funnybones. To celebrate Chinese New Year we will be looking at ‘The Magic Paintbrush’. The children will write their own simple version of the story.

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

Mathematics

In Maths we will be looking at addition and subtraction using a number line and numbers to 20. We will also put it into context through money, how much altogether? How much change? The children will use the base ten to look at tens and ones (units).

We will be developing our skills in weight, looking at heavy, heaviest, light and lightest.

Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.  The children will separate different categories to create mind maps. Following on from this they will learn to draw and import their own images into their mind maps.
