Useful Information 

PE in Class 3 takes place on a Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon. On Tuesdays, children are encouraged to come to school wearing their PE kit ready for a prompt start to the morning. A full PE kit is essential for children to participate and earrings must be taken out.

Class 3 have a spelling test every Thursday afternoon. Children will then be given new spellings to learn over the course of the following week. We understand that some spellings can be tricky to learn so it is important to practice regularly and look out for the patterns that can help you! When children reach 150 correct spellings, they will receive an exciting treat! 

Reading is a regular and enjoyable part of our day in Class 3 and it is fantastic to see so many children reading at home too! All children have a Reading Bookmark in the back of their homework diaries - for every read at home (signed by a grown-up), children will receive a star. When children have collected 15 and 30 stars, they will be rewarded!

In June 2020, Year 4 children will be sitting a new Times Tables test. We have daily practice in Class 3 but it is encouraged that children also practice at home. There are many fantastic websites and apps to use but we love using 'Hit the Button' in Class 3, which can be accessed below.

Harvest Festival

On Wednesday 18th September, we celebrated Harvest Festival in our assembly. Class 3 have enjoyed learning and performing a poem all about looking after others and discussing as a class who our donations may help in our local community.


Super Science

In our Science topic, Animals and Humans, we have been learning all about our bodies and how to keep ourselves healthy. This week, we had a closer look at the digestive system and learned all about the different parts and how they work together. We all got very messy exploring this using the Banana Sandwich Investigation!




Marvellous Maths

Over the past two weeks in Maths, we have been busy exploring column addition and subtraction using our knowledge of place value to help us. Today, we focussed on exchanging hundreds, tens and ones and worked with our partners to figure out some very tricky questions!




 Fish and Chip Friday

 On Friday 20th September, we made our way outside onto the playground for a very exciting lunchtime. We had our picnic blankets and drinks at the ready and we ate our lunches from real chip shop boxes! Some of Class 3 even managed to sunbathe for a few minutes before we headed back inside for the afternoon! A fantastic time had by all (and there were no seagulls around to pinch our chips!)




All About Us

 Mrs Sutton's group have been very busy working on some super self-portraits this week! The children used mirrors to identify the different colours they would need to use for their eyes and hair and were very excited to share their final pieces!

They will all take pride of place on Miss Mayo's reflection window - keep up the hard work!
