Welcome to Birch 3RP's class page!
The adults who work in our class are Miss Patel and Mrs Huggins.
Our class novel is:
The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton
Some important bits you need to know:
Our indoor PE day is Tuesday for which the kit is a white t-shirt and black shorts
Our outdoor PE day is Thursday for which the PE kit is a white t-shirt, tracksuit/jogging bottoms, a jumper and outdoor PE trainers
On Wednesdays, we may also take part in an outdoor learning session, therefore, suitable footwear and jackets must be worn.
Homework is sent home each Friday and is due back in by the following Wednesday.
Spellings are also sent out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday.
Please practise them at home as often as possible.
Practising times tables at home will also be super helpful! Please try as much as possible to access TT Rockstars. It is a brilliant way of improving the children's times table proficiency as well as having loads of fun! Below is the link for TT Rockstars:
Reading should be done at home at least 3 times each week and recorded in reading logs. Remember to bring your reading log in at least once a week so we can keep track of how often you are reading. As soon as you have finished your book, make sure to hand it in so we can give you a new one. Children who read at least 3 times a week, every week, are invited to a special party after school once every half term. Could you be at the first one?
Weekly Learning- week beginning 16/09/19
In Year 3:
Maths - Our maths focus for this week: Place value- We will be writing numbers up to 1000 in words and numerals before moving on to comparing and ordering numbers.
English - In our English lessons this week we will be independently writing a recount of our visit to Cannon Hall Farm. We will then begin to write descriptive setting paragraphs, focusing on expanded noun phrases.
Science: Forces and Magnets- We will begin by playing tug and war against the adults, whilst discussing which forces were used in that game. We can not wait!
Art: We have been learning about a Dutch artist called Piet Mondrian, who is regarded as one of the greatest artist in the 20th century. He is famous for abstract painting. We will be replicating his famous artwork, which is known as 'Composition with yellow, blue and red'.
