Welcome to Class 3's Homepage
Your Teachers are Mrs Morrison on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and Mrs Comb on a Wednesday.
Your Teaching Assistant is Mrs Canale
Class 3 PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. PE kit should be worn to and from school on these days to prevent the need for changing. Please make sure that tracksuits are worn in cold weather and that children have suitable trainers which support their ankles. Long hair must be tied up, earrings will need to be removed or taped up and nails must be kept short to avoid injury to themselves or other pupils during practical sessions.
Homework will be set via Purple Mash or Timestables Rockstars each week. . Passwords for these platforms can be found in their home school book. They will also receive an extra handwriting sheet containing their spellings as we will be focusing on correct letter formation and joins.
The children will make a note in their home school book of any additional work to be completed. I will also update class dojo weekly with the details of any homework set. Please check and sign your child's diary weekly. Also make a note on the relevant whenever any work is done as the children will get dojos throughout the week for any additional work completed.
Each week, children will learn a new spelling rule during our Read, Write Inc, spelling sessions. The children receive their individual spellings each week from their Read Write Inc teacher and will be tested on these the following week at the beginning of a new spelling rule. Children will be rewarded with a dojo point for full marks on their spelling test or if they beat their score from the previous week. Children will receive a new set of spellings on a Monday and will be tested the following Monday.
It is essential that children practice their timetables regularly. In class three, we complete a daily times table quiz. We will also have the opportunity to go onto TT Rockstars to practise once a week. If children complete 20 minutes of TT Rockstars time at home throughout the week they will be given extra Golden Time on a Friday.
The children are expected to read their school reading book every day for at least 15 minutes. This will need to be recorded in their home school book. When your child has completed their book they have the responsibility to tell their class teacher. Children will be given specific days to change their reading books. If they finish their book before this time, we encourage them to reread the book, which helps them build up fluency and to also complete a small reading task which focuses on some of the other reading skills.
