Elm Class

"The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. A determined effort to raise the quality of teaching has had a significant impact in improving behaviour, so that inattentiveness is rare and behaviour does not disrupt learning".

Ofsted Inspection Report, 2015

 

Welcome to Mrs Payne's Class - September 2016

Welcome back to all the children and welcome to Year 3, the first year of Key Stage 2.  Already, the children have been working incredibly hard. In English, we have been looking at lots of different fables and will be beginning to write some fables of our own soon.  Many children did some fabulous research over the summer on our Stone Age topic and we enjoyed sharing what they produced as a class. We have been learning different facts about how Stone Age people used to live and we have even tried some of their painting techniques, picking and crushing berries to use as paint to create our own cave paintings.

 

Important Information

We have PE on Wednesday (outdoor PE with Ignite) and Thursday (indoor).  Please ensure PE Kits are in school all week and that everything is labelled.

Homework will be sent home every Wednesday and should be completed and ready to hand in the following Monday. In Year 3, we set homework in English, maths and spelling - there will be a spelling test of the week's words every Monday.  If you have any queries about the homework, please speak to Mrs Payne. In KS2, if children do not hand their homework in, they will be required to go to Homework Club on a Tuesday lunchtime to complete it.

Our library day is Thursday,

We also expect children to read at home 5 times a week as this is paramount to their progress. Please make sure you ask your children lots of questions about the text to check and develop their comprehension. When your child has finished their home reading book, please sign their reading record and then they will be able to change their book. 

 

Please find below the link to the list of class readers and the Literature Spine for Year 3.  The class readers are books we will read in school - we'd rather you didn't encourage your child to read these before they have been read in class. However, the literature spine details high quality books for this age group and we would encourage you to read these at home, in addition to us reading them in class.
