In Class 3 we aim to make school an enjoyable place where children feel safe. The children in Class 3 learn through an engaging and exciting curriculum, where learning is fun and enjoyable, allowing the children to learn through practical experiences as often as possible. Class 3 is a place where every child is treated equally and is valued. The children are all provided with a wide variety of learning opportunities, both indoor and outdoor, allowing them to explore a range of different activities.
The classroom displays are child friendly, providing children with a variety of information which links with the current work. Children’s work is also celebrated around the classroom, often being pinned to walls and shown around the class.
Positive reinforcements are used frequently in Class 3. Rewards such as certificates and trophies, are given out for fantastic behaviour, work and effort. Children are chosen each Friday to meet with the headteacher where they can talk about their achievements in `Hot Choc Friday'.
Class 3 always try to be positive role models for other children around school and demonstrate their excellent attitude to learning in everything they do.
PE: Our PE lesson is on a Tuesday and children are asked to come into school wearing their PE kit on this day. PE kit should include black/navy shorts or jogging bottoms and white t-shirt; all this should be clearly named and labelled. Hair should be tied back, and any earrings should be removed.
TTRS/Numbots: All children have access to TTRS and Numbots. These apps support children with mental recall of number bonds and times-tables. Children have their login details in their reading records.
The children in Class 3 have started the term very well. In English, our new text is called ‘Weslandia’ by Paul Fleischman. This text has been chosen as a way to further help children understand a range of emotions. It also allows for a lot of thought-provoking discussions and some high-quality pieces of work to be produced.
In Maths, we will be focusing on ‘Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, and Multiplication and Division’ this term. As a class, we will be recapping what has been covered over the previous year and learning new skills which will help to develop the children’s understanding of these areas of Mathematics.
Our topic for this term is 'Invasion'. In the Invasion project, your child will explore the effects of the Roman withdrawal and the chronology and geography of subsequent invasions. They will study the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in detail, examining their reasons for invading, their settlements and their everyday life. Your child will also look at monasteries and the Anglo-Saxon legacy. They will consider how we know about life in this period and investigate the Sutton Hoo ship burial. They will learn about Athelstan, an Anglo-Saxon king, and what happened after his death, before ending the project by learning about the Norman invasion of 1066.
