Welcome to 3SH

Teacher: Miss Holley


LSA: Mrs Symes


Welcome to our class page for the Summer term 2024.


In English, we are learning the fiction text 'The BFG'. Already we have had two huge handprints apear on our window in class. We have been trying to figure out who they might belong to. We will be using this story to inspire a character description as well as make recipes for giants. 


In Maths, will be continue with a bit of division before moving on to focus on fractions, measure and shape. We will continue to learn our times tables and apply our knowledge to reasoning and problem solving.


This term, in our Topic we are learning about Ancient China and in geography, we will explore and compare counties. In Science we will investigate forces, light and shadows, as well as Christianity and Sikhism in RE. . 


Important information



Homework (spellings) will be sent home on a weekly cycle. The spellings will be assessed each week on a Friday.


Times tables tests will take place every Thursday. Children will need to pass (100% correct) two times before moving on to the next level.


Please ensure children are learning their spellings and times tables at home.


PE kits

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. 


Reading books

We use accelerated reader books for our reading. The children will complete a star reader test which will give us a level for their reading book. 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. We ask that you ensure you record any reading that takes place at home with a simple comment inside your child’s Reading Record. After passing a test each child will earn points that they collect together to earn a bronze star badge working their way trough the year to a gold star.


TT Rockstars

We encourage all children to learn/practise their times tables weekly, this can be through games, chanting, quick fire questions or there are many apps. In school we use TT Rockstars https://play.ttrockstars.com/ that can be accessed from home (their is also a ttrockstars app than can be downloaded onto most devices). Each child's log in is on the inside of their reading journals.
