Welcome to Class 3
Miss Louise Abbott
Welcome to Year 3!
In our class have 30 children – 10 boys and 20 girls. Our teacher is the wonderful Mrs Wordsworth and our teaching assistant is the amazing Miss Abbott. Our class motto is:
“In class 3
We can learn anything.
We can know everything.
We can be anything.’
We are working very hard already and enjoying our learning. Our learning environment is very colourful, welcoming and immersive. We love the Iron man’s scrapheap in the middle of our classroom! We all aim to get ‘Star of the day’ as our photograph is put up in the classroom for everyone to see and we are allowed to sit on a chair when it is carpet time and go out first. Also we get one of Mrs Wordsworth’s special stickers.
Autumn term topics
Novel Study – ‘The Iron Man’. Literacy - Recounts, character and setting description, newspaper reports, poetry, instructions, Numeracy - counting, place value, all four maths operations, shape and measures, History –Steel Industry, Science - Electricity and forces and magnets , PE – Gymnastics and invasion games, Art/DT - 3D model and the artist Lowry.
It is essential that your child becomes fully confident with their multiplication tables this year (2, 3, 4, 5 and 8 times), not just being able to recite them but knowing them at speed. It is also essential that your child reads every night at home to help with fluency, expression and comprehension skills
Wednesday 11th October –Kelham Island – 9.15 am – 3.00 pm
PE - Children must have a full named PE kit in school every week from Monday to Friday, consisting of a white t-shirt, black shorts, pumps or trainers. We will try to go out for outdoor games as much as possible, so as the weather gets colder your child will be able to wear black jogging bottoms/tracksuit and a black sweatshirt, together with trainers. Please be aware that earrings must be taken out for every PE lesson. This is a Rotherham Local Authority policy and is for the health and safety of your child and other children.
Monday - Spellings to be learnt for testing the following Monday.
Fridays – Subject related to be handed in following Thursday.
To read every night.
Some important advice:
Listen, concentrate and work hard.
Complete homework promptly and return it on time.
Be organised at home; prepare for the next school day.
Bring a water bottle for a drink every day.
Remember ALL your PE kit, EVERY Monday.
Get plenty of sleep on school nights.
Know your multiplication tables well.
Read every night at home.
Don’t forget to smile and laugh
A reminder that our school uniform is white polo shirts, royal blue jumper or cardigan, black skirt/trousers and black shoes. In an attempt to reduce the volume of lost property, please ensure all items of clothing are named. Jewellery and nail varnish must not be worn except for small studs/sleepers – these cannot be worn for PE and your child must be able to take their earrings out independently.
As you are aware during the transition weeks in July we were overseeing children leaving school at the end of the day. Over the next few weeks, as we build independence, the children will begin to leave class by themselves – so it is important that someone is there to meet them at 3.15 pm at the gate. In the interest of safety all children will be taught to return to class if there is no known adult to collect them.
Mrs S Wordsworth and Miss Abbott
We have celebrated National Science and Engineering Week by taking two teams of scientists to Wales High School for an inter- primary science competition. We had to build pasta towers; test acids and alkalis; make electromagnets and investigate chromatography. Although we didn't win the competition, we had an awesome time and the Y6 team won the 'Best Teamwork' Award!
Today, we have baked chocolate flapjacks that will be sold at our Easter Cake Sale.
