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.

We are bright sparks when it comes to electricity...

Being super scientists, we investigated which types of circuits would conduct electricity and light a bulb and which wouldn't. We worked carefully to discover what makes an complete circuit, what affects the brightness of the bulb and how switches work. Here we are working scientifically.

C'est fantastique

In Year 3 and 4 we have been enjoying our French lessons. We have been learning how to identify the colours in French as well as how to talk about our families. Here is some of our super French work.

Sir Curious - Where Does Chocolate Come From?

In Class 7, Sir Curious surprised us with a quest to find out where chocolate comes from. We were all so excited to find out more...

Jack and the Beanstalk

What better way to start a new half term than with an energetic, modern pantomime show.  The children (and the teachers) thoroughly enjoyed the interactive performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. As well as being entertained, we were inspired and children across the school are writing their very own version of the tale. Here are some photos from the wonderful morning. See if you can spot two of our teachers putting on a show with the performers...

Persuasive Posters and Adverts.

In Class 7 we have been using our persuasive language skills to make posters and adverts. We enjoyed this very much and all tried our best. Photos of finished adverts and posters to come.

PE Experience Day

Class 7 had a lovely day out on 9th October at the Orford Jubilee Hub. We enjoyed an active day jam-packed with physical, educational activities.

European Language

Tuesday 26th September was European Languages Day. We celebrated this across the school and learned all about the language, culture and cuisine of three European Countries: France, Spain and Germany

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.
