Welcome to Class 3
Autumn Term 2023
Please make sure that your child reads and talks about their book to an adult every night for at least 20 minutes. When you have read with your child, make sure you sign their green reading log. Reading to an adult is important for every year group. We will be checking reading logs every morning and awarding house points for every day that a child has read and had their log signed by an adult.
Please use Times Table Rockstars regularly to ensure children have speedy recall. We have a Times Table Test every Wednesday where the children complete as many questions as they can out of 50 in 3 minutes.
In addition, children may be given a specific piece of homework on Maths, English, Reading, Science or Topic. Sometimes they will be asked to do a piece of research homework or a project to support work they are doing in class.
Your class teacher will give you information about daily reading, how to fill in your child's Reading Log and maintain communication between school and home. We would recommend daily reading of at least 10 minutes, including incidental chatting about the book. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to speak to your class teacher as soon as possible.
Class 3 Spanish
Every morning we speak Spanish when answering the lunch register, reading our morning prayer and going through the date and weather board. Each week a different member of Class 3 becomes our Spanish Ambassador. The Spanish Ambassador is in charge of setting up the date and weather board and leads the class in the pronunciation of the words.
Knowledge organisers are a summary of the key facts and essential knowledge that the children need about a unit of work or a curriculum subject. Please make sure you have these available to your children at home and regularly go through the information on them as this will help support your child's learning. We will also be doing a number of pop quizzes based on the knowledge oragniser.
