HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Happy New Year from the Year 3 team to you all. Firstly, a big 'Thank You' from us all for your Christmas wishes and gifts - they were very much appreciated. The children have returned this term in good spirits and ready to learn which has been fabulous to see. Our new topic is 'Through the Ages' and we are looking at The Stone Age, this half term. A full topic web and suggested homework grid will be uploaded shortly.
The weekly spelling sent home today are for a quiz next Friday (17th). In addition, I hope that the children are continuing to enjoy Times Tables Rockstars - this seems to be making a huge difference in their times tables knowledge and confidence, so please keep practicing.
if you have any questions, please feel free to talk to me at school pick up or email me.
This week we will start our reading challenge in Amethyst Class. The children have the opportunity to win raffle tickets, to be drawn at half term, with the lucky winner winning a small prize. To earn raffle tickets, the children can complete one of the star challenges (1 a week) and read to a parent/carer at home at least 4 times a week. A maximum of 2 raffle tickets per week, per child, will be awarded. The star challenges can be found at the back of the reading diaries. Please could you initial and date once each star challenge is completed. The reading diaries will be checked every Friday.
The class have clearly been practicing their 10 x tables at home - fabulous work! Some children chose to challenge themselves by trying the division facts quiz also - please see your child's homework book. Please keep practicing the 10 x tables this week (out of order too), as we are continuing our work on place value for the rest of this week.
Thank you to those parents who came to the coffee morning yesterday morning. For those who couldn't make it, we talked about what topics will be covered this term (please see the topic grid), optional homework and the transition to Year 3, The topic webs and homework grid are uploaded below.
The spelling homework this week includes a couple of extra words to learn, which are part of the 'Spelling Bee' challenge, but will not be tested next Friday.
We will start times tables quizzes next Friday and will start with the 10's.
Hope that you all have a restful weekend!
Welcome back to Amethyst Class!
I hope that you all had a fantastic, relaxing summer break - it has been lovely seeing the children all returning refreshed and ready to learn. I am really pleased to have the opportunity to see how this wonderful class of children are going to develop during year 3. We have spent the first few days easing ourselves back into our usual routines and have created a time capsule which will be exciting to open at the end of the school year. It will be interesting to see how much the children have changed!
Later this week, there will be a letter coming home containing some housekeeping information, a topic web and a home learning grid. In the next few weeks, there will also be a coffee morning where you are welcome to come and discuss any queries that you may have.
In the meantime, please feel fee to email me or ask the office to arrange a meeting face to face if you have any questions.
