Welcome to Miss Smith's Class

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 we are beginning to write some fables of our own.  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 enjoyed Nanny Viv, an archaeologist visiting us to talk about her work. 

Just before October half term, we had our Stone Age Day.  We enjoyed participating in lots of different activities to extend our learning.  We got to create our own cave paintings, try our hand at weaving, plan our own stone age camp, among lots of other activities.  We also enjoyed looking at lots of stone age artefacts and sketching them in our very own Archaeology Logbook!

 

 

Important Information

We have PE every Wednesday (outdoor PE with Miss Abbott) 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 Miss Smith. 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 Wednesday.

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.
