Welcome to Class 3!
Welcome to Class 3 with Mrs Dickenson!
We are all looking forward to an exciting year ahead in Class 3. We have already started our new ‘Curriculum Vehicle’ – ‘Meet the Artists’ and are working together in our learning journey across all areas of the curriculum. In Class 3 we all have high expectations of ourselves and a positive attitude towards learning. We celebrate our successes on a daily basis and challenge ourselves in every lesson.
This term we will be learning about:
We will focus on Place Value this term covering these strands: counting, addition and subtraction, comparing and ordering, Roman numerals, rounding and negative numbers.
In addition to this we will have daily opportunities to develop our mental Maths skills. We will practise times tables and number bonds to develop the speed and fluency of recalling these facts.
We will be exploring the text ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker. Through this narrative we will be writing diaries, stories and poems. We will be comparing this story to other adventure stories that we have read. Also, we will use non-fiction texts to explore ideas about the different settings in this text.
We will practise spellings, handwriting and reading comprehension skills daily in Class 3.
In the first part of this term we will be finding out about important stories from the Book of Genesis. We will be using these stories to find out more about God. We will be learning new prayers in each year group and exploring the importance of prayer in our daily lives.
Curriculum Vehicle – Meet the Artists
We have some wonderful activities planned to further our learning across all areas of the curriculum. Through the ‘curriculum vehicle’ we will develop the ability to plan our own learning journeys. This will involve working together, making decisions and evaluating our work. We will all be working towards creating a unique art gallery where…WE ARE THE ARTISTS!
Watch this space for developments in Class 3!
