Class 3 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Class 3
We are a mixed age class of Year 5 and 6 children who are taught by myself, Miss Davenport and our teaching assistant, Mrs Gill. For a small part of the week, Mrs O'Dowd will be covering PPA sessions.
What Our Week Looks Like
Our Forest Schools Leader, Mrs Booth, takes the class down to the forest every Monday afternoon. Again, please ensure your child has suitable clothing, especially for the colder and wetter weather. For the first half of the autumn term, we will be swimming in our P.E lessons each Wednesday afternoon. Following the half term break we will be welcoming back Mr Tucker to lead our gymnastics lessons, also on a Wednesday.
Homework for the first half term is the project. In addition, children are expected to: read daily; practise their spellings on Spelling Shed; practise their times tables; and complete their weekly MyMaths.
For the second half term, pupils will manage their own homework through the suggested ideas given by the teacher in addition to Spelling Shed, reading,MyMaths and times tables. During the second half term, homework will be marked on Seesaw every Monday. If there are any questions about homework, please just ask!
We will be really pushing Spellings and times tables and children are able to practise spellings online with the Spelling Shed website. Children can practise their times tables on 'Hit the Button' or in their times tables books. They will be tested on their spellings every Monday and on the focus times table every Friday. This is a big focus for Year 4 children, who will be sitting the Mutliplication Check in June 2023.
We would like all our pupils to read at least three times a week to an adult. Each time they have read, a child will receive a star to add to the reading rocket in their reading record book. Once they have completed their rocket, they win a prize! Regular readers will also be entered in a prize draw each half term to win a book.
Finally, no equipment (pencil cases, sharpies etc) is allowed in school. Children will be provided with the resources they need. This also includes trading cards, toys, teddies or anything else that is not needed in school.
Please ensure your child has a clean water bottle in school everyday, that goes home at the end of each day.
