Welcome to 3VW!
In 3VW the class teacher is Mrs Wilkinson and the teaching assistant is Miss Eaton. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Mahmood who will be working with some children in the afternoons too.
In 3VW the homework is set at the start of every half term and will be collected in on the last week. On the homework sheet are a range of activities that link to the topics covered in class. The activities can be completed in any order and at any time in your homework book. A copy of the homework grid for the half term can also be found on the link above. You will be rewarded for any homework activities that are completed and returned on time.
You will be given a reading book to take home. Please aim to read at least 3 times a week and ask an adult to sign your reading record to show us what you have done. Reading books will be changed twice a week if needed. As adults in school do try to listen to readers regularly, please could reading books be returned to school each day so we can do this.
Our PE day is Thursday and you are able to wear black tracksuit bottoms and trainers to school on this day with your school jumper. We will not be getting changed for PE this year. We will also be doing Spanish with Senorita Valero on Wednesdays and Forest School with Mr Marsden once a fortnight on either a Monday or Tuesday.
Should you need to isolate or be absent for longer periods of time this year, it is really important that if you feel well enough that you do keep up with your learning at home. We will be using a website called LBQ for our home learning with most children and your adults will be sent a code each morning which will allow you to access the work set each day. Some children may also have access to another website called IDL which can also be used to complete learning at home. Both these and other useful websites can be found below.
In English this half term we are going to start the year by completing a transition unit around the book 'Room on the Broom' by Julia Donaldson. The focus will be on our handwriting, basic punctuation and character description.
In Maths we will be reading and writing numbers to 1000 in digits and words and learning about the place value. We will also be adding and subtracting numbers mentally.
In Topic we are going to be learning about life in the Stone Age.
In Science we will be learning about light and dark. We will explore how shadows are made and which materials reflect light the best.
In Music we will be rehearsing songs for our school harvest assembly.
In PE we will be working on invasion games and developing our throwing and catching skills.
Our topic in PSHE this term is Dreams and Goals.
We are really looking forward to the year ahead and teaching you all!
