Welcome to Class 3
We are a Class of 32 year 3 and year 4 children. Our teacher is Mrs Woods. Mrs Humberston, Mrs Morris and Mrs Rendell also work in our class. Mrs Humberston helps the year 3’s with their work every morning and organises a reading competition to encourage them to read regularly and to discuss with an adult what they have read. The year 4 children are taught by Mrs Maple in the morning and then come into Class 3 for the afternoon.
We do lots of different and exciting activities during the week, all the year 3 children will learn to play a brass instrument and everyone learns Spanish! We have topic days when we dress up, research and present information plus taking part in role play linked to the things we are learning. We have visitors in and we get outside a lot in order to find out more about the world around us.
In Literacy we do lots of drama and retelling of stories so that we get really good at writing. We write in different genres and work hard on improving and redrafting to produce our best work. We listen to and read lots of books by different authors in order to improve our vocabulary and writing style. All classes do Letters and Sounds four mornings a week where we focus on spelling, grammar and handwriting.
Maths is fun, we play lots of games and work with numbers up to 1,000. We work hard on learning our times tables and doing written calculations. By the end of this year we should know our 3,4,5,6 and 8 times tables and be confident doing written and mental calculations explaining the process that we have used.
In the afternoons we do topic work which includes; researching information, field visits, art, science, history, design and technology and geography.
More specific information on the topics covered is included in the class plans.
In Class 3 we work as a team, we have decided on rules that enable our class to work happily and successfully.
