Hello there and welcome to 3HW's class page. Sorry it's taken so long to get it up and running but... "better late than never!"
The children have all settled into Junior School life well. This half term our topic is entitled: There's No PLace Like Home. The topic focus is mainly History/Geography based and we shall be looking at the local area and how it has changed over time. Last week we followed a map and went for a walk in the locality. We looked at how the land was used and learned some new terms: e.g. residential / retail and recreational! Over the next 4 weeks we shall be focusing more on the history of the area and looking at how it has changed over the last 100 years or so. Our science unit of work is all about Light and the children have already completed a number of investigations in this topic. Homework is now going out on a weekly basis. Homework is sent out on Monday and is due back by Friday. Please encourage your child to complete their homework as it reinforces the learning done in class.
Please could we also ask that you read on a regular basis with your child and sign and return their Home-School Reading Record. Could parents also help their children to learn the times tables facts. By the end of Year 3 it is expected that children will know and be able to recall facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables - a big ask but not an impossibility!
Should you ever need to see myself or Mrs Worden please do not hesitate to come into school. I think that's all for now. Oh yes... don't forget to book a parent teacher appointment for the 18th October. Tata for now.
