A message from Miss Clarke our new Class 3 Teacher
Welcome back to our final summer term in school! We made a fantastic start to our learning before half term and I know we'll continue this in our last six weeks together...
We loved our sports day, even though it wasn't quite the same as usual. Check out the images below...
We enjoyed our 'Beat the Street' morning and learning about co-ordinates outside...
We'll continue exploring our topic focus: The Ancient World. As historians we will enjoy finding out about Ancient Egypt and as geographers we'll revisit our map skills and understanding of the world we live in. To find out more about the different aspects of the curriculum that we'll cover this term see the summer curriculum document further down this page.
In literacy we'll explore explanation texts, look at the Brilliant Book The Rainbow Bear and cinquain poetry. Our maths will consolidate our fractions knowledge, explore position, direction, money, decimals and time. We'll still keep a huge focus on wellbeing, relationships and mental health, alongside all other learning.
Miss Lockwood will be continuing her sports coach role and PE will continue to be delivered on a Tuesday afternoon, so you will need to wear your PE kit on a Tuesday please. Also, remember no jewellery for PE, so please remove earrings before Tuesday, so the sessions can be undertaken safely.
This term the spellings are revision of some of the words we have completed this year. These will continue to be tested in a cloze text on a Friday. The weekly spellings have been added to this page (see below) and the topic homework tasks are also available, if you wish to complete any additional tasks. As always, keep up with reading, Sumdog or TT Rockstars.
Let's enjoy our final term together!

In weeks 5 and 6 there won't be sheets sent home to practise; as we will be undertaking sports week and end of term activities throughout this period. We will still be revisiting and consolidating spelling skills in school, but not undertaking the cloze assessment. But you can revisit any of the previous spellings if you wish to continue practising these at home.
To help understand the maths strategies used in school, watch these fantastic videos made by Mrs Powdrill.

Advice for Parents
You might be wondering how you can help your child at home with the work that we do in school. There are a number of ways that you can support with their reading, writing and maths. We have attached a grammar glossary, times table support (including the golden 50) and reading questions to ask your child when they're reading to you at home.
