Welcome to Class 3's Homepage
Your Teacher is Mr Smith.
Your Teaching Assistants are Mrs Wright and Mrs Bee
Class 3 PE days are Monday and Thursday. 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, BugClub or Timestable Rockstars on a Tuesday and should be completed by the following Monday. A note will be sent home giving details of the homework set plus your teacher will update Class Dojo with a homework message each week. If you cannot access any of these online platforms, you will need to inform your child’s teacher asap who will arrange for them to complete their homework in school on their classes ‘Homework Club’ day. On this day, technology will be available for children to complete their homework in school.
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 (and an extra golden token if they beat their personal best score). Children will receive a new set of spellings on a Tuesday and will be tested the following Tuesday.
It is essential that children practice their timetables regularly. In class three, we will have times practise as part of our maths lessons and on a Thursday they will be given the opportunity to use TT rockstars. Written times tables will also be given to them for extra practise. Homework will consist of times tables practise both written and on TT rockstars. See below for some other ideas for practising times tables.
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 planner. When your child has completed their book they have the responsibility to tell their class teacher, who will then allow them to change their reading book. Children will have regular opportunities to change their reading books. No library books will be available initially.
