Summer Term in Class 3
Welcome back - we hope you have had a lovely Easter 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.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday – Mrs Dobinson
Monday, Tuesday Wednesday – Mrs Parkin
Wednesday – Mrs Parkin
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday – Miss Banks
Our new topic this term is the Lake District, as well as a mini-topic on Fair Trade. We will also be learning about reproduction of plants and animals in Science alongside our Puberty lessons. We are really excited about our summer term sporting events, including swimming at Askham pool, football tournaments, cricket and much more so please ensure PE kits are in school everyday.
This term we will be working with students from Ankoma in Ghana and Morland Primary School to create some dance and drama – watch this space!
Computing – Children will be working on editing video and photo content.
French – The children will continue to be taught French last lesson on Friday by Mrs Walsh.
Spellings –They 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. They independently read every morning before lessons start and we expect the children to read daily at home. When your child reads at home this needs to be recorded in reading records - a mixture of reading aloud and independent is great.
Homework – Guided reading will take place with Mrs Dobinson on a Monday. Homework for Class 3 (Maths and Guided Reading) will now be on our remote learning platform Showbie. Children will receive their logins and will be taught in school how to access this. Parents can keep up to date by looking at Showbie with their children.
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 Miss Banks.
