Welcome to Class 3!
Our Class Teacher is Mrs Hillary and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Williamson, Mrs Raine and Mrs Armstrong.
Our class is a mixed Year 3 and 4 class. There are 33 children in our class. Every Thursday afternoon Mrs Hillary has PPA time and Mrs Williamson and Mrs Raine will lead the class on those afternoons.
This term class 3 will focus on the topics; People, Torah, Building Bridges (including the Sacrament of Reconciliation) and Gift. Year 4 children will be making their Sacrament of Reconciliation in November.
In the Autumn term our work will be centred around 'Our Local Area'. We aim to look at the history of Leadgate, including the mining community and the Steel works in Consett. We will also spend some time looking at Local war heroes and the First World War around Remembrance day.
We will be covering place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measures, properties of shape, position and direction and statistics.
In topic we will be linking our work to our Local Area and learning about the history of Leadgate, coal mining and linking these to Art.
Our Science topics this year are; Animals including humans, where we will explore what makes a healthy diet, the digestive system and how we can keep our teeth healthy.
This term, PE will take place on a Thursday afternoon.
The children will be given time within class to work on spelling rules and extend this knowledge through practise and a test in school. They will also be given the list of spellings to learn at home and will be tested during the week.
It is important that the children continue to practice their times tables. Children have times table practise in school through times tables rockstars. Children can access this at home.
The following websites can be used to help children learn their times tables.
Children have reading books and diaries that are sent home with them every day. Children are encouraged to read for at least 15 mins per evening and to record their reading in their diaries. Parents are asked to sign their child's diary once a week and be ready for a reading record check on a Friday.
Children have a homework grid which is in their homework folder. Children are asked to choose an activity each week to complete and bring their homework in. Please help to support your child with completing their homework which is due into school on a Wednesday.
