Welcome to Class Three
Years 4,5 and 6
Our topic this half term will be ‘Hunted' and we will also cover our local area as part of a discrete History Topic
Please see our topic web for full information and a detailed breakdown on all subjects this half term..
Our main focuses in Maths this term are the four number operations, place value and statistics. All year groups will be working hard to consolidate and extend their understanding through guided sessions, independent work and maths zone challenges. Times tables rock stars will also feature. Children will continue to have on going ‘problem solving’ activities embedded into the maths lessons, where they are encouraged to work together using the skills they have acquired to tackle problems and challenges. Times tables are of vital importance in all aspects of maths work in school. Please encourage your child to access games on the times tables rock stars website to help their rapid recall of multiplication and division facts related to times tables.
In English this term, the children will be given the opportunity to practise and improve their writing skills through the reading of high quality texts. This half term, the children will be enthused and encouraged to learn the skills of writing folk tales and discussion texts, as well as writing thought bubbles, diary entries and letters. They will also be given the opportunity to perform and respond to poems on a theme.
Grammar and punctuation skills will also be embedded within the guided group sessions during English lessons. Spelling will be taught discretely in weekly spelling sessions. Each child has a weekly word list which is tailored to their individual needs. Homework activities are linked to these word lists and informal testing of the spelling words will take place during the daily spelling sessions. Please encourage your child to complete their homework activities as this will help to encourage their learning and progress.
RE this half term will cover, 'Why was the Bible created?'
On Tuesday, PE will be taught by Miss Aitken and Class 3 will cover athletics. On a Friday, Sports Partnership will cover batting and fielding.
Reading: Our aim is to develop a love of reading for all our children. Reading with your child should be a fun and enjoyable process. As your child becomes more independent, please help them to read on a regular basis. Talk to them about their book choices; discussions and plot predictions support your child in their comprehension skills. We have a new reward system in place to encourage our reading superstars. Reading is vitally important in so many aspects of the wider curriculum and is a valuable life skill. Reading for pleasure is something which we would love all our children to benefit from.
Times Table Rockstars: In order to develop the rapid recall of multiplication and division facts relating to times tables, all children are encouraged to access the games set on their TT Rockstars account. All children have their own personal log in and individually set times tables to work on. Battles between the class groups are set weekly, with rewards for the winners and top scorers.
Homework: Homework for maths, spelling and reading will be sent out weekly on Fridays to be handed in on the following Thursday. Regular home reading is also encouraged and there is a class reward scheme still in action to promote this.
