Welcome to Class 3 smiley

We hope you have had a great summer break and we are looking forward to working with you all this year and starting a busy Autumn Term. 

This term our topics are as follows:

History and Geography - We will be delving into the fascinating and at times gruesome world of Ancient Egypt.  Mrs Marsh is looking at booking a trip to the Manchester musuem to help us learn more about these amazing people.  During the topic we will be looking at geographical aspects such as the Nile and the terrrain of Egypt.  In addition to this, we will look at religious beliefs, rituals and home life.

Literacy - Our literacy work will link into our topic work.  The book we are studying is called The Scarabs Secret (see the Literacy page for more information.)  We will also be listening to the story 'Ma'at's Feather' and writing poems about Egypt.  Alongside this, we will be focusing on handwriting and spelling.

Maths - In maths we are focusing on place value and further developing our knowledge of multiplication and multiplication methods.  Our shape and space focus will be 2D and 3D shapes and their properties.

R.E - During R.E lessons, we are going to be focusing on good news and learning more about God.

Art - Art sessions will initially focus on sketching skills and the use of a variety of sketching pencils.  This will then develop into sketches based on our topic.  A final piece will be a sketch of an Egyptian god or ruler.

DT - After half term, we will be learning about pop-up books and how to create different folds.  We will then use this knowledge to create our own pop-up books based on the topic of Ancient Egypt.

Science - States of Matter - the children will be learnig about the properties of solids, liquids and gases.  They will also be identifying the stages of the watercycle and the processes of evaporation and condensation.

P.E - During the first half term, we are going to be attending swimming lessons at Winsford Lifestyle Centre.  These sessions will take place on a Friday afternoon.  To ensure the children receive the full 2 hours of P.E each week, they will also have an hours P.E session on a Monday afternoon.  This term we will be focusing on hockey.  Please make sure the children have their kit in school for these each week.  We will also be continuing with our 'Daily Mile' and the children require a spare pair of trainers in school each day forthis.

French - In French sessions, the children will be continuing to build up their language skills, developing their use of French phrases and spoken language.

Homework is given out every Thursday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.  We encourage the children to be more independent with their homework and organise themselves to ensure it is handed in on time.  If for any reason the homework piece is going to be late, we wish to be informed before the due in day.

Homework pieces consist of a literacy/topic piece and a maths piece.  In addition to this, children should learn their spellings ready for the test on a Monday and should read regularly at home.  Children will be provided with a reading diary which should be completed every time they read.

Where possible, homework pieces will be added to the website (there is a separate page for spellings.) We also have extra copies on the noticeboard in the classroom.  It is your child/childrens responsibility to replace lost sheets.
