Welcome to Class 3
Mrs Hudson and Mr Hulse will be teaching Class 3 this year, ably assisted by Mrs Perrie.
Mr Hulse—Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings
Mrs Hudson—Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays and Fridays.
We hope that you have had a restful summer, and are looking forward to a busy Autumn Term. Here is a little round up of what we will be learning about this term in Class 3.
This term we will reading and exploring the book 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo. A story told from the point of view of a horse who witnesses the deadly chaos of the First World War from both sides of the trenches. We will use this text to help develop not only our writing, but grammar and comprehension skills too.
Place value and number system:This term we will focus on all aspects of number system and place value, including the four operations, ensuring children are confident in mental arithmetic calculations. The children will (where applicable) continue practicing their times tables as this is a fundamental key skill they need to access numerous mathematical concepts.
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.
ENGLISH AND MATHS HOMEWORK
Each week there will be a piece of homework to complete, for both English and Maths, based on what is being taught in class. This will be set on Fridays to be handed in on Wednesday each week .
Times tables All children will be encouraged to have a secure and rapid recall of all times tables.
