Welcome to Class 3!
Happy New Year!
Welcome back! Best Wishes to everyone as we begin 2021! I am very excited to be starting our new topic for this half term, ‘Tremors’in which we will be finding out about natural disasters around the world both in the past and more recently. We will be investigating different ‘Rocks’ in Science and finding out what lies below the surface of the earth.
Homework - Please note homework will continue to be set on a Friday and will be mostly Maths this half term. Children will be given a Maths workbook and asked to complete certain pages. This will be marked when returned to school the following week. Please do take a look at the new Topic Homework suggestions! I continue to be impressed by the quality of the homework that comes into school and would like to thank parents for taking the time to support your child. Well done to all the children who earned a certificate before Christmas!
Spelling- We continue with the No Nonsense Spelling Programme which embraces the knowledge of patterns and rules as well as the learning of spellings from the statutory words, common exceptions and personal spellings. Your child will be taught spelling daily in class and bring home a pattern / rule to focus on each week. Their understanding will be assessed each Friday. I am delighted with the progress made by all children last term.
P.E.- PE lessons continue on Tuesdays and Fridays delivered by the Lancashire sports partnership. Children are being encouraged to come into school wearing their kit PE kit or sports wear on these days.
Forest School Dates will be given ASAP– I have made sure Mrs Smith knows that Class 3 are next on the rota! We will be visiting Scutcher’s Acres as soon as the weather is reasonable. Please wear appropriate clothing/ waterproofs/ wellies.
Reading— Thank you to so many parents that are supporting your child’s reading at home. Please continue to listen to your child read as often as you can and record this in the Reading Record book. Your child will read with me each week in a focused Guided Reading group as well as on a daily basis within lessons. Mrs Suggitt also listens to readers on a Monday/Tuesday. Please ensure your child has their book in schoolir own book when needed, within the stage they are on. and remind your child to change their book when needed.
Named water bottles and healthy snacks may be bought into school—toast is available for 20 pence/day.
If you have any questions or concerns, I am available to discuss your child’s academic or social progress – just call into the office to make an appointment or email me email@example.com Thank you for your continued support.
