Autumn Term in Class 3
Welcome back - we hope you have had a lovely Summer break and are ready for hopefully some sunshine this summer term. Our class page on the website will keep you up to date with information, what’s happening in Class 3 and to give you a feel for our fabulous children and class.

Our new topic this term is the Ancient Greece, the children had a taster of what was instore before we broke up for summer, including letting us know what they would like to learn.
Spellings – Children will be taught their new spellings for the week every Thursday morning and spelling checks Friday mornings. Children have logins to Spelling Shed where they can practice their spellings both at school and home.
Reading – Children are responsible for changing their book once completed. In class we independently read every morning before lessons start and we expect the children to read at home, a mixture of shared and independent is great. To monitor reading at this age, it is vital that they/you fill in their reading diaries – this helps us keep a close track on progress. Please help with this at home, thank you.
Homework – Guided reading will take place with Mrs Parkin on a Monday. Homework for Class 2 (Maths and guided reading/reading comprehension) will continue to be given out on a Monday and due in on the following Monday. Homework is now completed on Showbie, children have logins for this app and use at school.
Children will also have access to our new learning platform Click View – links will be posted within Showbie and children will have a login – this is where some of their homework and classroom content can be found. It is a safe place with video content so it is a good alternative to a platform such as ‘You Tube’ as it is vetted content without adverts. With your supervision/consent children are welcome to access any of the resources on there as well as content ear-marked for lessons or homework. We feel that this is a very positive and exciting addition to our computing provision.
If you have any concerns or questions about school or your child, please contact us directly on one of the following email addresses and we will do our best to support you.
We are all looking forward to another term filled with learning and laughter.
Mrs Dobinson, Mrs Parkin and Mrs Ray
