Welcome to Class 3 2017-18
Class 3 is made up of children in year 3 and year 4. Mr K Taylor is our class teacher and Ms Littleford, Miss Marlor and Mrs Hammond are the learning support assistants. There are 31 children in the class. We all work together to do the best we can and be the best we can be.
In the classroom we all have our seats; however we move seats for Numeracy and Literacy to work with different groups on different types of activities. We have lots of different ICT resources which we use on a daily basis to enhance our learning. During all our different lessons we also like to use the outside environment to take our learning outside of the classroom.
In the morning we do Guided Reading and Support for spelling, followed by Literacy and Numeracy. In the afternoons we have Topic time which includes subjects such as Science, R.E, P.E, Art, ICT, Geography and History.
In our class we do lots of different learning. We do small focussed group learning, independent learning, and learning all together. This helps us to do our best and enjoy being in our class.
We are continuing with Chess and Choir on a Monday but will also be doing PE on a Monday with Oldham Sport Development.
On Tuesday mornings we also learn French. On Thursday’s we are also taking part in the wider opportunities programme where we are learning to play the guitar.
Things to Remember
PE days are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for this half term but it is important that pupils have their PE kits in school at all times during the week.
Guitars with Mr Hemmingway will take place on a Thursday morning – all pupils participate in learning to play the guitar and music theory.
Homework will be sent out on a weekly basis on a Tuesday and needs to be returned to school by the following Monday. We will also be sending home weekly spellings to learn and practice every Friday.
Guided reading takes place daily in Class 3 but pupils will still be given a home reading book. Pupils must inform an adult in the class when their reading book needs changing and this will be checked and a new given out.
Every day children may be expected to read and so school reading books should be in red bags.
