Welcome to class 3JS!
Our class teacher is Miss Smith.
If you have any questions or you would like to talk to her about anything, she is on the KS2 playground before and after school every day.
To find out what we are learning about each half term, the Year 3 curriculum plans can be found here.
Every half term we read a class text from which we are inspired to write. By reading the text or extracts of the text together, we explore the characters, settings and plots. This may involve drama, hot seating in role, thought tunnels,
acting out parts of story, answering and asking questions and lots more! As a result of all this we then, throughout the year, dive into our writing and produce letters, diaries, recounts to name but a few. Miss Smith loves reading,
especially books with beautiful illustrations and she shares her favourite ones with us. Also, she is more than happy for us to choose from books she has bought in and we can borrow them. Some of them belonged to her children.
We also bring books in and recommend books for her to read. All these can be found in our beach themed classroom reading area. Miss Smith is so proud of us when we work really hard to improve on our work in any subject and gives us personal bests and house points. This certainly motivates us and fosters our love of learning. In fact, we strive to be the best we can be in all areas of the curriculum. Through our challenges and “Going for Gold” we are encouraged to move our learning on further. When we make mistakes, we go with our Growth Mindset philosophy and learn from them. Come and read our “Mistakes of the week” board! We always discuss our errors and how mistakes are really useful in helping us reflect and improve our knowledge.
In Year 3 we also work on developing good learning habits. You can see them all here:
Important things to bring to school:
Water Bottles – children can bring their own water bottle into school and store it by the sink in the classroom. Please make sure that water bottles only have water inside.
Reading Folders – children need their reading book and reading diary in school every day.
PE – children need their PE kit in school every day. PE kit consists of a white t- shirt, black shorts and plimsolls/sand shoes.
Homework – Homework is sent home every Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday morning.
