Welcome to Green Class!
Welcome to Year 3!!
Miss Goodwin is our teacher and we also have help from Mrs Simpson.
Now we are in Key Stage 2 we have a lot of new responsibilities and expectations. We are learning to become more independent and to produce fantastic pieces of work every day. We are also working really hard to get our pen licenses this year, fingers crossed!
Things to remember:
PE kits are needed on a Wednesday this term.
Swimming kits are needed on a Tuesday.
Homework is handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Tuesday.
Spellings are tested every Friday.
We have PE with Mrs Potts on Wednesdays, we will be outside for PE unless the weather is bad so it is important to have indoor and outdoor kits. With winter just around the corner, if your child doesn't have an outdoor kit they are going to get very cold!
We also go swimming every Tuesday so please make sure your child has their swimming kits. Payments of £2.50 per child are asked for to help pay for travel and the lessons.
Homework is handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Tuesday. Your child should receive Maths, Literacy and spelling homework. It is very important for us to remember to learn our weekly spellings , they come home on a Friday and are tested the next Friday. There may sometimes be a project or topic piece to complete as well, a separate deadline would be given for this.
Please make sure your child reads at least 3 times a week but every night would be good to develop those very important reading skills.
In Maths this half-term we are learning our 4 times table, we have also just learnt our 3 times table. It is good for us to keep going over our times tables because otherwise we may get them confused with each other. We will be using them to learn more about multiplication and division which is new to us.
Our topic this half-term is Mexico which we are very excited to learn about it, we are playing travel agents and writing our own travel guides about Mexico. We have researched the country using the laptops to help us gather information. We are soon going to be making and trying our own Mexican food, pictures to follow! We may even learn some Spanish amigos as well as the French we already know.
