Mrs Brown’s Class Autumn Term 1 Newsletter.

 

Welcome to Year 3! Miss Low and I are very excited about our new school year. We are particularly eager to share with the children the many postcards that have been sent to our class over the holidays to illustrate our European Explorers theme.

This newsletter will give you further information on what the children will be learning in all their lessons this term as well as a timetable of our planned activities.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to have a chat after the class is dismissed at the end of the day (Monday, Tuesday and Friday are best) or contact the school office to make an appointment.

If it sounds so exciting you’d like to join us, you might consider becoming a volunteer, let me know if you’d like to try for a morning, an afternoon, or a week!

 

English

Our English lessons this term will be focussed first of all on “George’s Marvellous Medicine” by Roald Dahl, we will learn all about the writer to prepare a scrapbook about him; in the second part of the term, we will look at a holiday brochure and learn how to write our own.

 

Maths

Our Maths lessons this term see us learning about place value and number. The children will build upon previous knowledge and use this to solve a range of problems and challenges.

 

Science

In Science, the children will build their scientific enquiry skills. They will investigate and find out about the skeletons and nutritional needs of different animals, including humans.

 

R.E.

The children's R.E. learning this term will see them finding out about what matters most to Christians. This will reinforce their understanding of our school's Christian values.

 

French

Through songs, games and repetition we will learn numbers and months to say when our birthday is as well as recognising other people’s birthdays.

 

 

 

 

PSHE

We will be looking at e-safety, class and school rules, and friendships; growing and changing. Through 1-1 conversation the children will be encouraged to take ownership of their learning through mindfulness and MAJ.

 

P.E.

In PE this term the children will have special sessions with a Karate instructor on Mondays. The outdoor sessions will take place on Wednesdays, run by Mr Collins. This term they will be focussed on ball throwing, catching and team games that require this skill.

Please ensure your child has their PE kit: black or navy shorts, plain white or blue school t-shirt and plimsolls in school for these days and that earrings have been removed. (We are not allowed to remove them.)  As the weather gets colder please send leggings or tracksuit bottoms so that we can still go outside.

 

Art/ D.T.

Our Art and DT lessons will be centred on the different ways we can represent European flags, from Lego to sewing, including collage, painting and salt dough. 

 

Computing

We are Programmers` is the first unit and children will learn about the importance of e-safety before any learning is undertaken.  Once this has been understood, they will have the opportunity to create an algorithm for an animated scene in the form of a storyboard; write a program in Scratch to create the animation.  They will also need to correct mistakes in their animation programs.  The most fabulous thing of all is that your child will be able to access the Scratch programme from home on our School website for them to practise and play with.

 

Homework

  • Spellings- These will be sent home on Mondays and the children will tested on these spellings on Fridays.
  • Sumdog- Weekly Maths and English homework is set on Friday for the following Thursday via the Sumdog Learning Website. Your child should have their own logging details. Homework clubs are available in case your child is unable to access the Sumdog Website/App from home.
  • Times tables daily times table practise is essential for the children’s learning journey.
  • Reading - Your child will be reading daily in class through different subjects. Please ensure you listen to your child read, discuss and ask questions about the books, as often as possible during the week and note in their reading record that you have done so. The more their reading skills improve, the more opportunities open up to them. Reading is key to all learning.

Please ensure your child brings their reading book into school every day.
