I am very happy to be back in Year 3 with such a positive, hard working class!
Please visit this page as the year progresses for updates, and to find out a little more about what we have been learning about in class.
I am always happy to speak with parents about any queries or issues. Please see me at the start or end of the day for a quick chat or to arrange a longer appointment.
What a whirlwind of a first week! We have worked very hard, first and foremost, to establish our classroom routines and work on our positive mental attitudes!
In literacy, we have been studying Ottoline and the Yellow Cat. We have written character descriptions and retold a part of the story in our English books. To help plan this piece of writing, we had a drama lesson where the class all pretended to be characters from the book. It was a lot of fun!
In maths, we have concentrated on strategies to improve our times tables and worked on how to calculate the perimeter of rectilinear shapes. I was impressed with how accurate the class were with their measurements and their singing of the perimeter song! Parents- ask your child to give you a rendition!
Welcome to Year 3!
This week has been full of fun and excitement. The children have been using drama techniques to explore personality and we have been thinking about who we want to be this year. We have also talked about how we want Mulberry Class to look when people visit.
We will be doing PE on Tuesday afternoons and swimming on Thursday mornings after break. Thank you for returning swimming slips. This coming week, Roald Dahl Day coincides with our swimming day so please ensure children have costumes that are easily removed! We also ask if face paint could be avoided. Thank you.
Reading books will be changed as and when needed. Please write a comment at home in your child's reading diary when you think they are ready for a new book.
Well done to Year 3 for another fantastic week!
All of the children have worked incredibly hard again this week and I have thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks. Everyone was very pleased to see Mr Cutler on Wednesday when he dropped in to see us and it was lovely to meet Bethany Rose. I know Mr Cutler is excited about returning next week and the children are ready to wow him with their super work.
Just a few reminders for the weekend; the children should have brought their new homework books home with them tonight. Inside is the new homework pyramid, next week's spellings and the optional homework that Mr Cutler discussed with the class on Wednesday. Remember, homework should be handed in on Wednesdays and spelling tests will be done on Fridays.
Have a great weekend!
