Welcome to Class 7!
Class 7 is a Year 3 class taught by Miss Marshall. Mrs Baker will be teaching on Thursday mornings.
This half term we have been reading the story of ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’ by Michael Morpurgo. We have enjoyed looking at the vocabulary and the main characters in the story. We worked towards planning and retelling the story in our independent writing books. We tried very hard!
We have also learnt how to punctuate direct speech. We have been looking out for this as we have been reading The Pied Piper!
With the help of Mrs Baker, we have also created a beautiful display on this story. We are very proud of this!
Speaking and Listening Competition
As a class, we tried very hard with our Speaking and Listening presentations. We all showed respect to others whilst they were presenting. Miss Marshall was very impressed!
We have been learning all about Fractions.
Wiktor says: “A fraction is a part of a whole.”
We have been finding fractions of shapes and amounts. We know that the top of a fraction is called the Numerator and the bottom part is called the Denominator.
We have found 1/2, 1/4, 1/3, 1/5 and 1/8 of given shapes or amounts. We have also looked at solving problems involving Fractions.
We have been learning how to use Microsoft Powerpoint this half term. We have made a presentation based on our school ‘The Milford Academy’. We have added pictures, text and colour to each slide to make our presentations interesting.
Class 7 have been working hard to follow the Milford Values. We are trying our best to make good choices both in and out of the classroom! Miss Marshall is pleased and likes to move us up on the behaviour chart. Many children have been awarded with their Bronze and Silver now! Lets go for Gold! I will be looking for independence, super listening and being motivated to complete work.
World Book Day
In Class 7, we love Reading! It helps us to develop our vocabulary. We have been working on our fluency and expression when reading. We enjoyed dressing up as our favourite characters on World Book Day. We also loved getting our vouchers and stickers!
Children will receive 5 tasks on Fridays to be completed by the following Friday. The tasks are to be completed in the children’s reading diaries. This gives families the flexibility to complete tasks in any order and over the weekend if this is more convenient.
We will be doing PE on Friday afternoons. Please ensure children have a complete kit in school at all times. We would really appreciate all items to be named. Please could all earrings be removed or covered (please provide tape or plasters).
Children need to bring in a contribution of £3 for their snack money every half term. Your support with this is greatly appreciated.
