Welcome to Green Class!
We are Year 3!
Miss Goodwin is our teacher and we also have help from Mrs Simpson, Mrs Redford, Mrs Scott and Mrs Wood.
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 Monday however it is best for them to be in school all week in case we do any extra PE.
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 Mondays, 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 some very exciting new methods for multiplication and division, we like to challenge ourselves in Green Class!
In Literacy we are getting reading for Christmas with the Polar Express! We are really setting the scene with our descriptive work using adjectives, noun, phrases, similes, adverbs and lots more of our fabulous skills.
Our whole class text for this half-term is the Magic Finger by Roald Dahl! We all wish we could perform magic in Green Class!
Our topic this half-term is all about Ancient Egypt, we are learning all about the River Nile, Gods and Goddesses, the daily life of Ancient Egyptians, the pyramids and mummification. Mummification is a little bit gruesome!
In Green Class we love Science! This half-term we are learning about Animals including Humans which links to our Ancient Egypt work, mummification involves organs! We have learnt about the food groups which involves thinking about healthy eating. We have created our own menus and we have asked Mrs Lakin if she will let us test them out on the other children.
