Welcome to Class 3's page!
After a relaxing summer break, Class 3 are settling into their new habitat and are looking forward to a busy term ahead.
Here are some highlights of the coming term:
We will be learning about the Savage Stone Age in our History topic. We will be linking the topic to Science, where we will be learning about Rocks and Soils. Our topic will also feature in our English learning, as we read the story of Cave Baby, and learn about Stone Age cave paintings.
It won’t be long before it is Book Week, and the children are looking forward to all the fun we have planned such as dressing up as book characters, and performing poetry. Watch this space!

Using Spelling Frame
** Please note that in order to practise the weekly spelling words, children need to be logged into Spelling Frame. Log-in details can be found in your child's homework book. Children will have a test in class on a Friday, but they can take practise tests using the Spelling Frame site. Below is a guide to using Spelling Frame. Please let me know if you have any queries about using Spelling Frame.**
Homework will be sent home weekly on a Friday. It is due by the following Thursday. Children also need to complete Mental Maths exercises and bring in their book for marking every Monday and Wednesday. Please let me know if your child needs assistance with their homework.
