Welcome to Badgers!
Welcome to our class page! The class teacher is Mrs. Ahmad and Miss K is our lovely learning support assistant.
The key information you might need to know is...
* Monday morning is our library slot. Please make sure you bring in you reading book, your library book and your planner.
*Tuesday morning is P.E. You can come in to school in your PE kit. Please make sure it follows school policy!
*Wednesday is our Outdoor Education day. This alternates between both year 3 classes so check you have the correct day.
*Friday is the spelling test and arithmetic test day. Work hard to beat your score every week!
In English we are using David Walliams book, 'The boy in the dress' to kick start lots of fun reading and writing activities. We will deconstruct the story and will incorporate some newspaper report writing into our lessons.
We will use our new talk rules to make the most of all class discussions and will have daily handwriting practise to make sure our work is always presented beautifully.
The more you practise at home the better you will become and the faster you will get a pen licence!
In Maths we will be continuing to consolidate all the fantastic things we learnt in Year 2. We are starting off with Number and Place Value. The children will be working with numbers up to 1000 and will have to know how to order and partition and use the 4 operations to manipulate numbers.
Every Friday we will have an arithmetic test so remember to keep playing on TTRockstars to practise your timetables.
'The difference they made.'
We will be looking at significant people from the present and past to see how they made a difference to the lives of people all around the world.
We will be delving into our histories and will plan how we will make a difference in the world!
'We can dream it! We can do it!
'Bonjour! Ca Va?
In French we will be starting off with colours and numbers. The children are very excited to learn how to speak another language!
In these exciting videos, learn French words for colours and numbers.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and is expected back in school the following Wednesday. Homework will usually consist of an English activity, a maths activity, spellings to practice and reading for pleasure.
Please encourage your child to pay attention to the quality of the work they do at home as we expect them to be aiming for the same standard as when they are in school.
You could support your child by making sure they have a quiet place to work and encouraging them if they become stuck. If you have any concerns about how to help please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Please make sure that your child reads every day and that you sign and date their reading record when they have read with you, as reading records are checked daily.
Blue or black jogging bottoms, white T shirt and pumps. ( For indoors and outdoors) No logos or branded clothing.
PE in Year 3 is on Mondays.
We are continuing with our times tables during mental maths every week. Please help to support your child by testing the times table they are learning at the moment. They need to develop instant recall which can be used in other areas of maths, so should be encouraged to learn times tables out of order also.
We have been learning to tell the time on analogue and digital clocks. For some children this is a very difficult area of maths. You could encourage them to use clocks and watches around the home to help to support their learning in the real world. Questions you could ask might be;
'What time is it now?'
'How long until supper time?'
What time will it be in half an hour?'
Please ensure that your child attends school everyday on time. We want to achieve 100% attendance as often as possible. If your child is ill then please contact the office in the morning.
