Class 3 2020 - 2021

Mr Hudson

Welcome to Class 3

We have completed our first week back and it has been lovely to see you all again.  Last week we got to know our routines and changes in school and we also got to know each other a bit better.  This week we are beginning to start our work again.  Lots od you have been asking about spellings and homework. The spellings lists are now live on the spellings page and you will all find out your group this week.

Homework will be given out this week.  Literacy/topic tasks will be handed out with a homework book on Thursday this week.  With the maths homework, I am going to trial using Google classroom and we will have a practise of this in school this week.

 

I am looking forward to seeing you all again and getting to know you better.  I have taught you all before but only for a short time so it will be fantastic to spend more time with you.  I hope you have all had a great summer and have recharged your batteries after all that home learning.  We have an exciting and busy year for us all and I don't know about you but I can't wait to go back to school!

I have been working hard to sort the classroom out ready for your return.  I have provided you all with the stationery you will need so don't worry if you haven't got any of your own.  For those of you who are bringing your own pencil case please make sure it isn't too big and you only bring one.  We only have a limited amount of space.  You will also need to bring a water bottle and a packet of tissues.  

The first few days back, are going to be spent getting used to the classroom and the routines.  We didn't have chance to do it before the summer holidays so this will be our transition time.  I will guide you through the new rules and help you understand the workings of our classroom.  

This half term we are going to using the book 'The Journey' by Francesca Sanna as a basis for our learning.  We will be using the book to develop our vocabulary, grammar skills and writing.

In maths, we will begin by looking at place value.  At first we are going to do some recapping on 3 and 4 digit numbers before focusing on 5 digits.  Year 5 will be moving on to 6 digit numbers.  We will also be rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 and furthering our knowledge of Roman Numerals.

Our topic focus is 'Modern Europe.' We will be identifying the countries that make up the continent of Europe.  Capital cities, climate zones, mountain ranges and rivers.  We will focus in on Germany, Italy and Spain.  Our art focus will be on two spanish artists Salvador Dali and Joan Miro.

The science topic this half term is digestion and teeth.  We will identify the organs and processes used in digestion, name the different types of teeth and consider how we can keep our teeth strong and healthy.
