Welcome back Class 3!
I hope you all had a great summer holiday, we’re looking forward to hearing about all the fun things you’ve been up to.
This half term we’re excited to announce our Topic will be Urban Pioneers - Hop on the bus and take a trip downtown where the lights are bright and every street has a story to tell. Explore with fresh eyes the art of the city, the capture a moment in time – perhaps a reflection on a building or a shadow passing by. How could you improve the urban environment? Maybe add more colour? More light, more things to do, or perhaps a plaza with a comfortable bench or two? Light up the city with creations of your own…a statue, a light show, a monument or street art. The possibities are endless, so what you choose? You’re an urban pioneer…so get ready to go!
If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to book an appointment with the office for a Wednesday.
Homework this term will include spellings to learn linked to spelling patterns we have been looking at during the week, and children will also have a list of topic based projects they can choose from to carry out throughout the half term. The children will also have times tables to practice. Homework will be given out on Fridays to all children and must be handed in on Wednesdays. They will have a spelling test every Thursday or Friday.
Children will also bring home reading books every week. Learning to read is one of the most important your child is learning at the moment – it means they can access any information, not just in school but in general life. Please read with your child daily; 10 minutes a day is much better than a long session a week. Children who read regularly will be entered into the school ‘Reading Raffle’.
We will be continuing the Daily Run this term so please ensure children have either black trainers as school shoes or trainers to change into. Children will need PE kits in for normal PE lessons; please leave these in school during term time.
