Mrs Taylor's Class
Happy New Year, 3T!
I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas break and are ready for another exciting term in 3T.
This term, we are going to be studying 'The United Kingdom'. We will be exploring life in the UK and completing many activities that will help to develop our map and atlas reading skills.
Within our Art lessons we are going to be looking at two more famous artists - Mark Rothko and L.S. Lowry. I can't wait to see your wonderful artwork!
We encourage all children to read for 20 minutes each night - independently or to an adult. Our current focus this term is fluency and expression. In the classroom, we will be reading each week to our friends and teachers. Please feel free to read school books alongside your children's favourites at home!
Please ensure your child keeps their reading book and reading record in their bags so that they are accessible throughout the week.
Homework will be sent home on Monday each week.
I will be uploading one piece of Maths homework and spellings each week via the VLE. Both pieces of work will be uploaded by 4.30pm every Monday and the children will have one week to complete them. I am using the VLE in the classroom to help develop the children's confidence and independence. Please contact me if you have any further questions.
The children will be tested on their spellings the following Monday. The spelling test will be in a mixed order.
Making sure that the children can quickly recall their times table facts will really help with their learning in Years 3 and 4. The following websites will help the children do this, at their own pace, and in a fun way.
Purple Mash (children have their own login details)
The children will be tested on their times tables every Friday afternoon. We are currently focusing on our 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10s.
This term, our PE lessons will take place on a Friday afternoon. Please send your child to school in their full PE kit. In colder temperatures, your child is welcome to wear joggers / leggings to keep them warm. Your child must have their school jumper or cardigan, no hoodies, please.
The children are welcome to bring a snack to school for morning and afternoon breaks. Please ensure that these snacks are healthy!
A quick reminder! If your child has a medical condition that we need to know about, please inform us as soon as possible. If your child requires an inhaler or any other medication, please make sure it has been returned to school and is not out of date.
School and Eco Council
The children in Year 3T did an amazing job with their School and Eco Council manifestos. I am so proud of the efforts that each child went to - they are a credit to themselves and their year group.
