Class 3 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Class 3!
In Class 3 you will find Mr Olver and our fantastic TA, Mrs Jones. We currently have 25 pupils from year 3 and 4.
Madame Eloise will be teaching French on a Wednesday afternoon. Mrs Middleton will be teaching PE on a Thursday afternoon and Mrs Hague will be teaching RE, also on Thursday.
Throughout this term we will be learning about 'Nurturing Nature' in Science. Here, we will be exploring all about how plants live, reproduce and what they need to survive. In history, we are looking at Ancient Egypt and finding out about how important the River Nile was in helping the Egyptians to flourish as well as they did. We will be looking at some of the homes and also at how they were able to farm the land as well as they did.
Maths this term will include the topics of Multiplication and Division, Length and Perimeter, Fractions, Decimals and Mass and Capacity.
In English, we will be continuing to develop our focus on all things Egyptian by studying the book called 'Egyptology' by Dugald Steer. Over the term we will be writing our own discovery stories about entering an unknown tomb and all of the treasures and dangers that lurk within. We will also be writing some diary entries about what happened and what we were able to dicover. Later in the term, we will be reading the book called 'Jemmy Button' by Alex Barzelay. We will be writing a narrative about returning to a certain place and also writing a letter to recount some key events.
In PE this term, we will be visited by the Warrington Wolves who will run some rugby sessions and we will get the chance to go and play in a festival to put our new skills to the test. We are also going swimming this term, on a Wednesday afternoon, from January through until we finish for the Easter break.
Maths homework will be sent home on a Wednesday and should be returned on a Friday. English homework will be set on a Friday and will be returned the following Tuesday. Each week the class will be set a number of spellings on Spelling Shed. They will be set on Friday and the children have a week to go over them and develop their spelling knowledge. We also strongly encourage the children to regularly access Timestable Rockstars to help develop their understanding of their tables. Over the course of the year there will be 'Rock Battles' within our class and also against other classes in school.
A busy term awaits!
