Class 3

Welcome to Class 3's webpage!

We are Year 1!
Our teacher is Mrs Henshaw and our teaching assistant is Mrs Wright.

We have had such a busy week in class 3, I think all of our brains hurt from super effort. In English we read the story of The Queen's knickers and wrote descriptive sentences about Queen Elizabeth. We continued to practice our handwriting and sentence structure- our main focus is finger spaces.
In maths we learned all about adding. We read and wrote addition number sentences. We used objects to help us at the start of the week and have moved onto counting along a number line.

In art we had lots of fun mixing different paints to see what colours they made!

Have an amazing weekend ready for some more learning fun next week!

Our topic for the autumn term will be called 'Best of British' and we will be learning all about our country.



We will be learning English and Maths in the mornings which will include phonics and handwriting. In the afternoons we will be doing a range of lessons and activities using our 'Rainbow Curriculum of Greasley'.

In Year 1 the children do a spelling test which is based on the sounds they have been learning in phonics. A spelling list will be stuck in their homework diaries on a Friday and then they will be tested on the following Friday. Please could you help your children to practice. I have also sent home a list of high frequency words which can be practiced alongside weekly spellings to support your child with both their reading and writing.
We will also send out homework on a Friday and it would be great if you could bring this back by the following Thursday.

Reading books will be changed weekly, this will allow your child to read their book more than once which will develop their fluency and comprehension skills.

class email-
please use this if you would like to send in photos or homework.
If you have a concern please either come and speak to myself or Mrs Wright in order for it to be dealt with promptly as emails will not be checked until the end of the day.
Thank you for your support with this
