Welcome to 3GB

Welcome to our class page for the Spring term 2024.
This term we are learning the fiction text 'The cobbler and the dragon'. So far, a dragon has already landed in our school and we will be using images of him and other creatures to create character descriptions. We will also be using this story to write newspaper reports.
After half term, we will learn 'The Gruffalo' and use this as our focus for dialogue. We will also be writing poetry and look at the different styles that can be used.
In maths we will be exploring column subtraction both with and without exchanging. We will also start to look at multiplication, division, fractions and shape.
In history we will look at the Mayans as an ancient civilization, we will investigate rocks and soils in Science and The Teachings of Jesus in RE. We will continue to look at how to answer retrieval questions in our reading lessons.
Homework will be given out every Friday. Children will have 10 spellings to learn and our word of the week which the children will learn about in class. They will also have a mixture of multiplication and division questions depending on which times table olympic level they are working on. Please help them to learn practice these daily. Here are some websites that may help you:
There will be a times table test and spelling test every Thursday.
The children do not need to bring PE kits to school. On Wednesdays and Fridays the children can come to school in their PE kits with their school jumper over the top. When it is colder, they are welcome to wear their joggers. Please ensure children wear appropriate footwear on these days too.
We use accelerated reader books for our reading. The children will complete a star reader test in school which will give us the children's book band level. Once they have read the book, they complete a comprehension quiz in class on their book. If they score above 80% they can move up to the next level. Children will read in school daily and quiz in school so it is really important their reading books are in everyday.
