Class 3 

Year 3 and 4

Teachers: Miss Banks and Mrs Cox

Teaching Assistants: Mrs McKeown, Mrs Braithwaite-Hall, Miss Letts and Miss Saltmer

Homework

Homework is set every Friday and is returned to school on a specified day the following week. Children are given a spelling, writing and times tables activity. 

Reading

Reading at home is invaluable in promoting progress across many curriculum areas including reading, spelling, grammar and writing. In Year 3 and 4 it is important that children continue to read to an adult to clarify understanding, although reading independently is also important to promote an enjoyment of books. 

Times Tables

In Class 3, we know the importance of learning our times tables to help us with lots of areas of maths. We each have a target times table to learn at home and then use  http://www.timestables.me.uk/ in school to see what we can remember. We use this website as it will help us to prepare for the statutory Times Tables check that will be sat at the end of Year 4 from 2020.

Our Learning

In Class 3, much of our learning is cross-curricular and linked to our topic. We do Maths and English each day although sometimes this is through using our skills to help us in other subjects. Through our topic work we develop our skills as artists, designers, historians, geographers and musicians. In addition, we also have weekly science, outdoor learning, computing and French lessons.

We are working really hard to become independent learners through finding our own ways to solve problems. We have lots of resources available to help with this and also know that sometimes it helps to collaborate and work together when something is challenging.

We are very lucky to have Mr Rose, our Sports Coach, to teach us Games skills each Monday and also do swimming and Taekwondo for part of the year. Our PE lessons are usually on a Monday and Tuesday.

Our topic for the Summer term is 'Time Turner'. See our topic overview below to see what we will be learning.
