Welcome to 3GB
Teacher: Miss Williams
LSA: Mrs Squires and Mrs Selway
We have settled into the class and the school really well. 3GB have been focusing on having a growth mindset and showing resilience in our work.
This term, we have been developing our Place Value knowledge in Maths. We have also been working on our 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.
In English, we have been learning ‘The Cobbler and the Dragon’ which is a defeating the monster tale. Whilst writing our stories, we were focusing on character descriptions.
In Science, we are learning about Rocks and Soils. We have particularly enjoyed learning about volcanoes which links to our topic of Pompeii. After half term, Year 3 will be visiting Whatley Quarry.
We encourage everyone to read for 5-10 minutes and record it in their reading records every night. These are handed in every morning so that they can be checked or changed. Children can read books, newspapers or webpages (educational of course!) and self-sign to say that they have read. We also have a Library in school which children are able to borrow books from.
Homework will be handed out on a Friday and is to be completed by Wednesday, ready for the spelling and times table test on Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure children are practising their spellings and times tables at home. We have started on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Once children get full marks in the 4 minute test they will progress onto the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Spellings can be practised in any way the children choose. Some useful links to help practise spellings and times tables are below.
