Welcome to 3W!
Our teacher Mrs West is very excited to get to know everybody in her new class!
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 'Light and Dark', so we will be investigating light, how it reflects and how it can be blocked to create shadows.
We will also make links to our book 'Orion and the Dark' in English lessons. It is a story about a little boy who is afraid of everything, but especially the dark. We are going to be thinking about emotions and fears and how they can affect our mental health.
In PSHE lessons we are focusing on Emergency procedures and how we stay safe in and out of school.
In computing we are beginning to use Purple Mash to work on Coding. We will be using our new Google Chrome books!
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 homework and weekly spellings that will be given out on Friday. We must try to bring it back and hand it in on Wednesday the following week. If you are struggling to get homework done at home, why not ask if you can join homework club?
PE kits must be in school and we do PE on Wednesday afternoon in 3W.
Keep your eyes peeled for pictures and information about the things we have been getting up to during this term.
