Welcome to Class 3!
What an exciting year awaits us all - We start the year, way back in history, with the Anglo Saxons, before accelerating through to the French Revolution during Term 4 when we will look at the role played by the monarchy and how, in the case of Marie Antoinette and her Louis, the rise of democracy brought it to an end. We will explore the cities and counties of the UK as well as comparing the landscape and features of Britain with France. In science we will investigate rocks and fossils, light and shadow, forces and magnets and plants. Mix in some PE, swimming and a performance, amongst other things, and you have the awesomeness that is a year in Class 3!
Homework and Routines:
Spelling homework is over a fortnight and focusses on learning the spelling rule, so that it can be applied, rather than the set words. Nine spellings, linked to the new spelling rule, will be handed out on a Monday. During the course of the first week the children are expected to practice daily and will be tested, at the end of the week, on a combination of these words and others that follow the rule. The second week of spellings is an opportunity for the children to further practice by writing sentences that include the 9 set words. Another test will take place at the end of the second week.
Maths homework, either giving an opportunity to embed learning that has taken place during the week or preparing the children for new learning, will be set on Tuesday and will be collected in the following Monday.
PE lessons with Mr Eshelby happen on Monday morning and with myself on Tuesday afternoon - please make sure that PE kits are in lockers at all times.
As the children move from KS1 into KS2, it is very important that we foster, in them, a sense of independence. We appreciate your support in this by encouraging the children to take responsibility for getting their homework into school when it is due, making sure that their PE kit is in their locker, taking care of their own belongings and delivering messages to me. Certainly from term 2 onwards, using Mum or Dad as an excuse for something not being done is not accepted - you guys do enough!
If you need (or would like!) to see me about anything, please either contact the office, who will pass on a message, or send me a message on DOJO and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I am here if you need me!
