Welcome to India Class

Class teachers – Mrs Letman and Miss McKearney 

Teaching Assistants - Mrs Setchfield and Miss Merta ???

In English, this term, we will be continuing our approach to writing. The children will be using the writing rainbow to help them to develop their vocabulary and create lots of interesting sentences. We will be working on Greek myths and Non-chronological reports. 

In Maths, we will be exploring multiplication and division and some addition and subtraction. 

In the 1st half of the Spring term we will be studying The Ancient Greeks and the children will experience an Ancient Greek day. The key questions that we will be answering are:

Who were the Ancient Greeks?

What was the cause of the battle of Marathon?

What is democracy? 

What are the main inventions from Ancient Greece. 

Who are the Gods and Goddesses?

 

 

Please see the knowledge organiser below to discover the key knowledge and vocabulary we will be learning in this topic

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

School Rules 

1. Be safe

2. Be ready

3. Be respectful

 Children will need to complete TT Rockstars, Doodle and spellings each week. We are also encouraging children to read at least five times a week. When you hear your child read please sign and date their reading record.

India class will have their P.E. on Tuesday and Friday afternoons, please make sure that your child comes in their full P.E. kit on these days (including footwear). No earrings are allowed during P.E. lessons so if your child can not remove their earrings themselves can you please make sure that they arrive at school with no earrings in on those days, thank you.   

Once again we are encouraging the children to read at home and there are chances to collect housepoints.

We are starting to use Accelerated Reader, where children will have to complete quizzes based on their books to test what they have read. 

We have a new incentive in school they win a prize every ten times they read to an adult. We will monitor this through their reading records. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to talk to one of the Year 3 members of staff regarding homework or reading.
