WELCOME TO CLASS 3
 
Class 3 consists of Year 3 and Year 4 children.
 
Our aim  is to ensure that every child feels that they are part of a caring class. A class in which they feel confident enough to try new things without fear of failure. A class in which everybody has something to offer. Our aspiration is that the children in Class 3 will become self-motivated learners through a varied and exciting curriculum. Parents are always welcome in Class 3, whether to discuss their child's progress or to help on educational visits. We want Class 3 children to enjoy school and to look forward to the opportunities each new day offers.
 
Key Timings:
PE - Every Wednesday, Class 3 children should come to school in their PE kits.
Homework - Handed out at the beginning of term. 
Spellings - Issued on Tuesdays, practised every day in class, tested the following Tuesday.
Reading Record - Your child will need to read to an adult at home and have their Reading Record signed, daily if possible.
Clothing/Footwear - Class 3 will take part in the Daily Mile in the woods. Please send trainers/wellies/boots in a bag when the weather is wet or unpredictable. Your child will need a coat every day in the Spring term. 
Times Table Rock Stars - Practised most mornings during registration. Learning times table facts is vital and children should be able to recite their table facts up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. Therefore, it is really important that whenever you get a few minutes you keep encouraging them to revisit these so they can automatically recall the facts without having to use fingers or apparatus. The more your child practises, the easier they will find calculations at school and out in the real world. Pupils in Year 4 will also be doing an online multiplication tables check in June. Pupils are asked to answer 25 questions on times tables from 2 to 12. They are given six seconds per question, with three seconds rest between each question, so the test should last less than five minutes.
 
KRP Spring 1st 2022 ~ Misty Mountain, Winding River

This Geography driven project teaches children about the characteristics and features of rivers and mountain ranges around the world, including a detailed exploration of the ecosystems and processes that shape them and the land around them.

 

Our English lessons will link to our geography topic, starting with diaries then moving onto leaflets, explanations and poems. Alongside these units, we will have weekly reading comprehension, a novel study, handwriting, spelling, punctuation and grammar activities. Our class book will be King of the Cloud Forests by Michael Morpurgo which links well with our main topic.

 

To begin with, our maths sessions will be multiplication and division based moving onto money, statistics, length, perimeter and fractions later in the Spring Term.

 

In Science, children will learn about the water cycle using words or diagrams and explain the part played by evaporation and condensation. They will learn about how environments can change due to human and natural influences and the impact this can have on living things. They will learn about solids, liquids and gases and their characteristic properties. They will observe how materials change state as they are heated and cooled, and learn key terminology associated with these processes.

 

The PSHE theme for this term is ‘Keeping Myself Safe’. Children will learn about safe and unsafe situations.

 

They will learn about assessing risks, danger, online safety and harmful/helpful drugs.

 

The PE blocks for this term are Mighty Movers (running) and Groovy Gymnastics.

 

In Art & Design, children will learn about the techniques that artists use when composing landscape images, such as colour and atmosphere. Children will also learn about the historical and cultural portrayal of animals in art. They will study the visual qualities of animals through sketching, printmaking and clay modelling.

 

In RE, children will learn about ‘People of God’ and what it is like to follow God. They will also learn about how festivals and worship show what matters to a Muslim.

 

In Music, children will learn about performing in ensemble contexts, using their voices with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression.

 

In Computing, children will learn to type to achieve a specific goal. They will learn to type basic punctuation correctly within on-screen writing. They will learn to use technology to organise and manipulate digital content. Later in the term, children will learn about branching databases. They will learn to create questions with yes/no answers to categorise objects and to retrieve information from different levels of a branching database.

 

In MFL, children will learn the basics of the French language. They will learn to greet each other, exchange names, ask how someone is, count to 10 and say how old they are.

 

 I have added a few documents to Google Classroom to give you a taste of what we will be learning during this topic. You will find fun facts in knowledge organisers, glossaries of new words, a digital copy of the homework book, useful websites and a suggested reading list. We will also be looking at these documents in school. 

 

Weekly spellings, homework, topic content, photographs of your children and general reminders will also be added to Google Classroom. Please check this regularly.
