Jesus said, "I have come in order that you may have life - life in all its fullness."
Welcome back! We hope you are looking forward to the new term and are excited about all the new learning that will happen. This term we will be learning about life in the Stone Age. We will continue working on Multiplication and Division in Maths and will be reading 'The Stone Age Boy' in Literacy. There will also be lots of other fun activities taking place.
The adults working with our class are:
Miss Emmett (class teacher)
Miss Palmer (teaching assistant)
Mrs Atkinson (teaches all day Wednesday and Thursday morning)
Miss Styan (Year 3 intervention teacher)
Mrs Granger (Year 3 intervention teacher)
Mr Stevenson (sports coach Friday afternoon PE)
Our Christian Value for this half term is THANKFULNESS. Have a look on our Values tab to see how we have been exploring how that looks in our school and how we can live it out in our lives, as Jesus taught us to.
Our RE enriches all of our learning This half term, we are looking at the question...
Why is the Bible important to Christians?
You can pay for school tuck or you can bring your own healthy snack from home. Parents and carers should pay for tuck using the ParentPay app. Please do not bring crisps, chocolate, sweets or fizzy drinks.
It is important to stay hydrated and drink little and often during the day so remember to bring your water bottle every day. You should take it home after school and clean it. Please do not leave them at school. Please only bring water and not juice.
At the moment, Mr Stevenson (our sports coach) will be teaching PE on Friday afternoons. He tries to teach outside as much as possible, unless the weather is very rainy or icy. Miss Emmett will be teaching PE on Tuesday afternoons. Make sure your PE kit contains clothes that are suitable for both indoor and outdoor lessons. Please remember to remove your earrings.
Make sure you are always prepared for the weather when you come to school. We have a morning play time, we play outside at lunch times and often go outside for a short break in the afternoon. Some of our lesson activities will take place in the school grounds too. Make sure you come to school with a coat and sensible shoes. If the weather is very rainy, you can come in boots or wellies and bring a spare pair of shoes to change into. We may play outside in light drizzle, but when the weather is very wet, snowy or icy, you will play inside your classroom and be supervised by a Mid-day assistant.
Spelling Words and Times tables
Each week, new spelling words and times tables will be sent home on a Monday. It is important to practise these for about 5 minutes, 4-5 times each week. There will be a spelling and times table test on a Fridays.
Our New Topic
Our new topic is called 'Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age'. We will begin by learning about what life was like during the Stone Age. We will think about how Historians find out about the past and we will use videos, books, the internet, pictures and artefacts to help us gather new knowledge. This topic has a History focus but we will also be making links with Literacy and Art.
Here are some videos that will remind you about the things we have been learning about in our topic.
Jesus is My Friend
Here are some fun songs to help you learn your times tables.
You will find lots of educational games on Top Marks.
We have been using Thinkuknow in class to learn about e-safety.
