Welcome to Class 3's page!
Class 3 have made a great start to 2022 and are looking forward to lots more learning fun during the Spring term.
Here are some highlights of the coming term:
We will be learning about the Romans in our History topic. We will be linking the topic to Geography as we focus on the spread of the Roman Empire. Our topic will also feature in our Art learning, as we are learning about patterns including tessellation. We are looking forward to our trip to Roman Camulodunum (modern-day Colchester) after half-term.

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.
