Welcome to Class 3

Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope that you have had a good break over Easter and are ready for another busy term!

Here is an overview of our topics for the year:

Spring 1 - South Africa

Spring 2 - The Weather

Summer 1 - Chocloate, a sweet journey.

Summer 2 - The Seaside


This term will be very exciting and involve lots of hands on learning (and tasting of course) for the children.



We will be exploring Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, focussing on imaginary settings, character descriptions and newspaper reports. We will also be recapping the structure of a sentence.



Please encourage your child to read for 15 minutes a night. Your child has a Reading Diary to record page numbers etc. and this must be signed by a parent /carer on a daily basis and must be handed in to be checked.



The children will be covering a range of units from the maths national curriculum.



Science will be taught once a week. This half term we will be looking at light and shadows.



We will be looking at Chocolate and the journey from bean to bar. Art and D&T will be linked in with topic work. We will be looking at designing and producing our own sweet wrapper.



PE will be taught on a Tuesday and a Friday. Children will need the following kit: black shorts; green logo T-shirt; socks and spare socks, black joggers /tracksuit and jumper, black fleece or skins (ideal for winter) pumps or trainers, a carrier bag for wet clothing and bobbles (girls).

We will be concentrating on tennis.



Music will be taught by Mrs Dinnis on a Wednesday morning.



Maths, literacy and spelling homework will be given out every Friday and all work should be handed in on or before the following Thursday. Spelling tests will take place on Fridays.



Computing will be taught on a Wednesday morning and will involve creating, storing, retrieving and editing.



German will be taught by Herr Jones from WHS (Year 3 only).


In Class 3 your child will be expected to follow a set of class rules.

We will use our manners.

We will look after our equipment.

We will use kind hands and feet.

We will listen to others.

We will try our best.

We will have fun!



If you do need to talk to me before, then please arrange an appointment or catch me after school.


Many thanks,


Miss Cat Smith
