Year 3 - Class Falcon
AUTUMN TERM 2020
Dear Parents, it has been wonderful getting to know your children since we returned to school. They have been brilliant in coping with the 'new normal' and I feel they are now quite settled into Falcon class and it's routines. A few things to note: children should be heard to read at home daily if possible - we have a daily home reader challenge board in class and the children are aiming to get to the end of it each Friday, when they will earn 10 house points and move straight to gold. I will be sending a homework choice grid out in the next couple of weeks. Click here to see it on line. The children will be expected to complete 1 choice each week. They can bring their work into school on a Friday to show it to the class or tell the children about it. They are also expected to know their 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables by the end of the year, so practising at home as much as possible will be a great help. Each week we have a Times Tables challenge where the children are given a tables test and the winner is the person who got the most correct in 2 minutes. They will receive a trophy, victory walk around the classroom (!) and receive 10 house points.
Spellings will be given out on a Tuesday and tested the following Monday. The link to the spellings can be found here.
PE will take place on a Thursday - please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school, including pumps, as we are doing PE outside in the first half of the term.
I have put here the link which shows the learning we will be doing this term.
Thank you for your continued support. If you need to see me I will be out on the playground at the end of the school day, so please feel free to catch me then.
Take care, stay safe
