Peace (Year 3) Class
This year, my TA, Ms Collins and I, aim to take your beloved child, through an exciting learning journey. Together, we hope to embed and further develop your child’s understanding of the skills and knowledge required, to be achieved by the end of Year 3.
In this autumn term, we will focus on ideas and activities from the text ‘The Tin Forest’, a picture that highlights the menace of fly tipping, the importance of recycling and the awareness of climate change. We hope to generate interesting creative writing which cuts across the breadth of the curriculum. Your child will be required to complete and present projects in Topic or Science, and inspirations from the main texts. This is to help develop their creativity and independence.
The focus of our topic (Geography) this term is Climate Change. We will create our own volcanoes as a class project for the term.
Spellings and Times Tables will be undertaken each week and children will be expected to learn them and will be tested on them weekly. Please encourage your child to use these words in sentences. This will help them use the words in context and also practise the spellings.
Children are expected to read at home every day. The books should be changed twice a week and a book reviews need to be complete before moving on to the next book. Please sign the reading record every time you hear your child read. They are responsible for bringing their reading record and their class reading book to school every day and for changing their book when necessary. Please support your child’s reading everyday for 15 minutes and help them to record this in their reading record.
This will be given on Fridays each week and will be expected to be completed on line by Tuesday the following week. It will usually be a Literacy and Maths task. Sometimes it may also be topic based. Each should not take longer than 30 minutes to complete. We hope to close the gap created by the COVID-19 school closure in Year 2, by setting home worked based on the revision/revisiting of skills missed and we kindly ask that you support us in doing so to bridge the gap.
Please ensure that earrings are removed on Mondays due to safeguarding. Children must wear the appropriate PE kit – white top with black or red bottom to school on Mondays. They need to wear the school jumper as well.
My TA and I are very delighted to start exploring and learning these new topics with your child and we look forward to continue the progress made this year.
