Welcome to 3S!
Here in 3S we have had a lovely few weeks settling in and getting to know each other. The children have loved exploring our brand new classroom and learning all of our KS2 routines!
Our class novel this term is George's Marvellous Medicine. This week the children have enjoyed reading the first chapter and meeting the character of George's Grandma. In George's Marvellous Medicine, lots of interesting words are used to describe Grandma. In our English lessons we have been looking at Synonyms and Antonyms that we could use in our own character descriptions of Grandma!
We are Mathematicians!
In our Maths lessons we have been learning all about Place Value. The children have been working very hard and have been producing some excellent work!
Our Class Charter
Together we have created our class charter, as a class we promise to follow these rules and respect one another. We signed our class charter by creating the outlines of our hands and decorating them with values we feel are important in our classroom.
Our Eco Rangers are Layton and Elle-Anne! They promise to keep our tidy a 'green' space by checking that we are recycling all of our rubbish and are not wasting electricity in the classroom.
Our topic for this term is Black Gold! On Monday we had a special assembly where 3S was given our key task, this term our key task is to design a miners' banner for Shotton Colliery. The children will be learning about the history and geography of Shotton Colliery and discovering what life will have been like as a miner.
Reading books will be given to children at the end of the first week. We have an expectation at Shotton Primary that children will read at home three times each week. It would be wonderful if you could share your child's reading book with them throughout the week and comment/sign in the reading diary. Now that the children are in Y3, and to develop independence, the children are expected to place their reading bags/books in the reading box so that we can change them regularly.
Homework will be given to children on a Friday and must be returned at any time before the following Wednesday. Homework may include spellings, Maths or English activities.
PE & Swimming Days
Swimming - Tuesday morning. Children will require full swimming kit: costume/trunks, towel and a swimming hat.
PE - Wednesday afternoon. Children will require full PE kit: dark shorts/tracksuit bottoms, white PE top, trainers (hoodie/jumper for colder weather).
