Welcome to Class 3
We are a Class of year 3 and year 4 children. Our teachers are Mrs Woods and Mrs Strong (Fridays) .
Miss Mann and Mrs Frampton are our teaching assistants. They help the year 3’s with their work every morning and organise a reading competition. We do this in order to encourage regular reading and discussions with an adult.
Some year 4 children are taught by Mrs Maple in the morning and then come into Class 3 for the afternoon.
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.
