Happy New Year! We hope that you have had an enjoyable Christmas break and are looking forward to a busy Spring Term.  Here is a little round up of what we  will be learning about this term in Class 3.

  

English

This term, we will be reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce. A story about a taller than average 12-year-old, Liam, who makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. We will use this text to help develop not only our writing, but grammar and comprehension skills too.

Maths

This term we will focus fractions, decimals percentages and the link between them.  Times table work hugely underpins all of this work, so we encourage your children to keep gaining speed and fluency on the recall of their tables facts.  We will also be looking at problem-solving and strategies to use to unpick problems.

Throughout the year we use Times Tables Rock Stars for competitions and challenges. By Year 5&6 it is expected that children can recall fact for the 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 & 12 times table. Using this app is a great way to learn and improve recall of these facts. We hold battles between the Year groups and regularly give out certificates to those who are engaging and making improvments!
