Hi a great full first week back everyone.
In Maths, we have been working on Place Value and what each digit is worth in a number, we have also had a big push on the 3 times table and have been chanting it around the classroom each day.
In English, we have continued working on the Colour of Home, looking at emotions and change. Everyone wrote a story about their journey to Year 3 from Year 2 and these were a pleasure to mark. It was lovely to see that everyone feels positive about their new teachers and classroom.
In Science, the children started their new topic on light and had a very active and practical first session.
In RE, we talked about life as a Christian and in French, we created an artist's palette and labelled each colour in French. PE has started well, it was fabulous to see that everyone had their kit.
Tomorrow, a letter will be sent out explaining how the spellings work, please ask if you have any questions.
We look forward to next week and starting our new story "When the Crayons Quit" . Have a lovely weekend. Mrs Carlton and Mrs Stevenson.
Welcome to Class 11 Parents / carers and children.
Class 11 have made a really positive start to the term already. We have spent the last three days exploring the story The Colour of Home and creating some fabulous artwork for the classroom and corridor.
The children are already very settled and many have been reading at home already. There is a yellow box in the classroom for the children to put their home / school diaries and reading books in each morning. They will earn Dojo points if they read at home. Please make sure you record it in their diaries. They can also record that they have read too.
The timetable will begin on Monday and the children will be bringing home a spelling folder next week (yellow) so please practise their spellings with them. They will be tested weekly.
PE will be on a Monday and Thursday, please ensure your child has their kit in school. If your son /daughter wears earrings, please try and take them out on these days.Thanks.
Homework has been set this week, see attached.
Enjoy the weekend.
Mrs Carlton and Mrs Stevenson.
Times tables - Who wants to be a times table whizz?
Across school, children will be taking part in 'Who wants to be a times table whizz?'
This involves children choosing a times table that they aren't yet confident with (from those that they are expected to know in their current year group), then learning this times table in school and at home in order to earn awards!
The times table awards are as follows:
Bronze award: children are able to say the times table in steps (e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10...)
Silver award: children are able to recite the times table from 1x to 12x (e.g. 1 x 2 is 2, 2 x 2 is 4, 3 x 2 is 6...)
Gold award: children can answer any multiplication or division fact linked to their times table (e.g. what is four lots of two? How many twos make twenty four?)
Children must achieve all three awards in their chosen times table before moving on to a new times table.
Year 3 need to work on their 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables.
