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 - January 2018

I hope you all had a lovely break over Christmas and that the children are rested and ready to learn! The Spring Term is rather short this year but as ever, we have a lot to fit in.  In English, we have started the term by looking at kenning poems and the children have written some amazing poems themselves. Next, we will be reading the classic novel The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and writing our own narratives inspired by the book.  In maths, we are learning about angles and shape, before moving onto money and measurement and then revisiting addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  It's just as important as ever for the children to know their times tables (3x, 4x and 8x for Year 3) so anything you can do at home to help your child learn them would be fantastic.  Our topic this term is Geographical Neighbours so we will be practising our map skills and looking at our surrounding area as well as learning about our international neighbours.

Important Information

We have PE every Monday (outdoor PE with Premier Sport) and every other Thursday (indoor).  Please ensure PE Kits are in school all week and that everything is labelled. That also applies to uniform - especially jumpers / cardigans and coats, lunch boxes and water bottles.  We seem to spend an awful lot of time trying to work out what belongs to whom!

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 Tuesday,

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.
