This year in Class 3, the teacher is Mrs Heeley (Monday to Thursday) and Mrs Wilkinson (Friday)and the Teaching Assistant is Miss Eyley. We are looking forward to a fun-filled year with lots of interesting and engaging topics.
Our focus this half term for our achievement award is ‘Being ready to learn’. Our P.E. Sessions will be Mondays and Thursdays.
Children will receive their spellings each Wednesday and be tested the following Wednesday. Children who get 8, 9 or 10 in their spellings will receive a full merit. Homework should be completed and handed in every Wednesday.
We are positively promoting reading throughout the school and feel this is a massive part of children achieving in all subjects especially writing. We are encouraging our children to read at home at least three times a week with a view to reaching 21 reads by the last week of term. Children who achieve this will choose a small reward out of Mrs Heeleys’ prize pot!
Autumn Term 2
This half term in English, we are looking at the text, ‘The Stone Age Boy’. The children will be continuing to look at using accurate punctuation within their writing and of course working on that all important presentation.
In Maths, we will be continuing to look at addition and subtraction and we will also be introducing multiplication and division. Please can you work with your child at home on their times tables because they are important to your child’s learning.
In Humanities, our next History topic is ‘The Stone Age’. The children will be learning about the prehistoric period.
