Welcome to Class 7 - Year 3

 

Our Class Team:

Class Teacher - Mrs Dowling

Classroom Support - Mrs Clare

In Class 7, we are extremely proud of our hardworking and ambitious attitudes toward learning, along with our caring, polite and respectful attitudes towards every member of our school community.

We are becoming increasingly independent and we continue to be extremely organised – here is Class 7’s weekly routine and key points to remember:

Reading: Class 7 love reading! Please continue to support this at home and encourage your child to read at least 5 times per week to earn a bronze reading award. Asking your child questions during reading will significantly impact on their understanding and comprehension skills; skills which are vital to your child’s development.

As always, please sign your child’s diary after they have read.

We actively encourage children to develop their love for reading, so we offer the chance for children to come into school early to complete an extra read. Children can come into class each morning until 8.40am and these reads will be signed off by an adult and will count towards your child’s reading award.

Homework: Literacy – goes out on a Friday, to be returned the following Tuesday

Spellings and handwriting – go out on a Monday, to be returned on a Friday ready for their spelling test

Maths – goes out on a Friday, to be returned the following Tuesday

Time tables – go out on a Monday, to be returned on a Friday ready for their test

(Please note: Maths homework is dependant on your child’s Maths group and is specific to these groups and current learning)

Children should be able to complete all homework independently as it is often simply a recap of topics covered in school. If your child is genuinely finding the homework difficult don't hesitate to inform their teacher before the homework is due.

P.E: This term, we are swimming every Wednesday afternoon. The instructors would like us to remind you that hair must be tied up, no jewellery is allowed and goggles are only allowed with permission.

Outdoor P.E will be on a Monday afternoon.

Author of the term: Our author of the term is Michael Morpurgo and our class book is Cool!

Topic: Class 7 are enjoying learning all about where chocolate comes from. We are developing our Geography skills, understanding the history of the cocao bean and learning all about the Mayans and Fairtrade.

We will continue to update this page with important information, key messages and photos so please keep checking back!

Diaries are checked daily for messages from home, however please free to ring or call into school if you have any questions or concerns.

European Languages Day.

Tuesday 26th September is the European Languages Day. We will be celebrating this across the school and learning all about the language and culture of three European Countries: France, Spain and Germany. On this day we encourage your children to wear the colours of any of these countries.

Reading Plus Online

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.

Meet the Teacher

A big thank you to all parents who attended 'Meet the Teacher' this week. For those of you who couldn't attend, or would just like a recap of the information shared with you, the powerpoint from the afternoon will soon be available on the website.

Swimming

Swimming begins runs weekly on a Wednesday. The instructors would like us to remind you that hair must be tied up, no jewellery is allowed and goggles are only allowed with permission. The children always enjoy their swimming lessons and we're looking forward to getting underway with them.
