Welcome to Class 7 - Year 3

 

Our Class Team:

Class Teacher - Mrs Dowling

Classroom Support - Mrs Tickle

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:

Thank you! Class 7 won the Reading Awards trophy last half term for their super efforts in reading at home. Well done to us all and a big thank you to anyone who has helped with reading at home.

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.

Homework: Literacy – goes home 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 home 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.

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: We aim to do two PE lessons a week. Our PE lessons take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please can you ensure both indoor and outdoor PE kits are kept in school during the week.

Author of the term: Our author of the term is Phillip Pullman.

 

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 and so it is usually the best way to contact school with any queries or concerns. 

Knowledge Organisers

Below you can see our Year 3/4 knowledge organisers for this half term. Here you can find out all about what we'll be learning in school in our Science, History and Geography. These will be updated half termly.

This Term in School...

Our current theme this term is the 'How dangerous is our planet?' which we have started by looking at the tectonic plates beneath the Earth's crust.

We will also be learning about our teeth, including how important it is to keep them healthy.

Food Technology and Design at University Academy Warrington

Class 7 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the high school in December as they got creative in the kitchen making pizzas. They chose and prepared their own toppings and designed the pizza box. 

Here they are cooking up a storm.

Meet The Teacher

A very big 'Thank You' to all those who were able to attend Meet the Teacher. It was a pleasure getting to meet you and we hope you found this session useful and informative.

Attached is the presentation shown during the meeting for any who were unable to attend or for a quick recap.

Mathletics

Mathletics is a great programme to use in school and at home. It is designed to develop and improve all areas of mathematics from arithmetic to problem solving. It will be targeted to your child's particular year group and ability. Children can access this at home using their own log-in and can earn certificates each week. The maths class with the most points in a week also recieves the Mathletics Trophy.

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.
