Welcome to 3W!
Our teacher Mrs West is looking forward to seeing everybody after our Christmas break!
Mrs West is also a Phase Leader for Year 3 and Year 4 so she makes sure we are are learning and enjoying school.
In science this term we are learning about 'Rocks and Soils', so we will be investigating different types of rocks, labelling and classifying them and thinking about what different types of rocks can be used for.
We are also learning how to write a warning tale in English, based on a text called 'The Caravan!' We will be making story maps and actions to help us to remember the text, which we will then change to make a new warning tale later. We will also be working on making a writer's toolkit to help us remember how to write amazing openings for our stories.
In PSHE lessons we are focusing on relationships. We will be looking at different emotions and how we can look after our mental health.
In computing we are working on our typing skills. We will be using purple mash to complete different activities that support our learning and help us to practise our skills.
We are very lucky to have Mrs Wright who also works with us in class each day, helping us to learn. Some children will be working with Ms Green and Mrs Haslam in the Forest Room. Mr. King is also working with a group of children who have English as an additional language each morning.
So that we can become better readers, it is important that we bring our reading book to school every day. Please sign it to say that we have read it as we want to try and earn rewards on our 'Rocket Readers' chart.
Now we are in year three we also have weekly spellings that will be given out on Friday and we need to go onto times table rock stars to help us to get better at our times tables.
PE kits must be in school and we do PE on Thursday afternoon in 3W.
Keep your eyes peeled for pictures and information about the things we have been getting up to during this term.
