School year 2020/2021

Autumn term

Welcome back! We are really looking forward to having you in Class 3.

This term Class 3 will be learning all about World War 2. The children will look into the main events that took place, the geography aspects, the lives of children during this time and looking at similarities and differences. The English topics will all be closely linked to WW2 and we are starting the Autumn term reading Friend or Foe by Michael Murpurgo as our class story.

Our page will be updated throughout the term with photos showing what we have been up to!

General Information

Listening to your child read on a regular basis, for example 3 or 4 times a week really helps them to progress and your help is greatly appreciated.

It will be very helpful if you could please continue to do the following:

  • When you read with your child, enter the date and title of the book in the reading record and sign your name.
  • Feel free to comment on how your child has done, but please don’t feel that you must do this every time as just signing your name is fine.
  • Speak to your child about the book asking questions such as: What could happen next? Why do you think that will happen? Can you tell me about the main character in the story?

SMIRFS (SPACE MISSION INSTANT RECALL FACTS)

Your child is working on their SMIRF targets. You can find these in the front of their yellow reading record book.  Like last year, the aim for your child is to complete the targets to enable them to move onto the next planet. Instant recall of mental maths is really beneficial to your child’s understanding and further progress in maths.  Please encourage your child to practise these on a regular basis, just 5 minutes is perfect!

Times Tables Rockstars

This is a great website where the children practice their times tables (and the corresponding division facts). Each child has their own username and password to login. Hopefully all parents are aware of this site now but don’t worry if you’re not, just let me known and I’ll give you your child’s login details.

Children in Need

Class 3 enjoyed joining Joe Wicks in the last part of his 24 hour PE challenge.

Lockdown 2

Class 3 have been discussing the second lockdown of 2020 this week. We made a banner to celebrate the fact that we are still together as a team through the second lockdown. The letters read: Class 3. 2020 Lockdown 2. We are happy to be in school!

WW2 interviews

Class 3 have been learning about types of questions and interview techniques. We interviewed with the use of a top quality microphone (glue stick) foster mums, evacuees, RAF pilots and soldiers. It helped us really think about the many different experiences of WW2.

Pumpkins

Class 3 enjoyed taking part in the pumpkin competition. Class 3 what amazing imaginations you have!
