Class 8

Welcome to class 8. we are a class of year 3 children and our teacher is Miss Richardson. In class 8, we always aim to do our best and enjoy everything we do at school. Mrs Baker works in our class too.

Here is some information about our class. Our PE lesson is on a Monday morning and we should always have our PE kit in school. We will be given weekly spellings on a Monday during our spot elling lesson which we can practise at home. We also have a reading diary with activities linked our guided reading books. We can decide on when we do our activities but we must remember to bring our diary to school everyday.

English

This half term we are reading a range of stories from other cultures. One of the stories we will read is The Tiger Child by Joanna Troughton. It is a folk tale from India about how a young tiger turned into a domestic cat. We will plan out the story and write our own version of it. We will also be learning about nouns, verbs and adjectives: being able to spot them in sentences and using them in our own.

Maths

In maths we will be improving our knowledge of place value and try to read and write numbers to 1000. We will also be working on our addition and subtraction skills, being able to use the column method and also to add small numbers mentally. Each week we will spend time improving our arithmetic skills. Remember to keep practising your times table – these are really important.

Topic

Our topic is linked to our English work. Miss Baker will be working with us to create some brilliant pieces of African art. It will be linked to a book called The Hunter by Paul Geraghty. We look forward to posting some pictures on here next time!

Science

Our science topic is Forces. We will be using magnets and understanding how they work and find different materials that are magnetic. We will be making a board game with magnetic moving parts.
