Welcome to Class 3!
Term 5 – Thinking Ahead – Message from Mrs Barnett
“Next term class 3’s topic will be looking at the History of British Clothing from 1066 to present. For the start of this topic it would be helpful if class 3 could come to school on Tuesday 25th April in their home clothes. But not just any home clothes, an outfit that is special to them. They will need to explain their outfit and why they chose to wear those items during the lesson.
Blenheim Palace are currently holding an exhibition entitled ‘A Passion for Fashion’. Unfortunately this exhibition is only available to see until the 23 April. If you have the opportunity to visit this exhibition over the next few weeks it would be very interesting and link in with our future topic.
I look forward to seeing your outfits.”
Term 3 –
Parent Volunteers – If anyone would like to come in and hear individual readers they would be most welcome on any afternoon from 2.30pm. Please contact the class teachers if you are able to spare anytime.
Home learning – In class 3 the children are expected to complete a piece of written home learning per week (usually maths). The children should spend no longer than 20-30 minutes on the task and should complete all that they can within that time. This will be collected in on a Monday morning (Tuesday, following bank holidays) and if a child has not handed in their work by Tuesday, they will be encouraged to complete the home learning task in school time to ensure they do not miss out on the opportunity to consolidate their learning. Please direct any queries to the form teacher or provide feedback on the home learning sheet if there are any problems.
Spellings – Additionally, your child will be expected to learn their spellings for a weekly test (usually completed on a Friday). If you want to support your child at home, practise by saying the words in a sentence so that your child develops an understanding of the word meaning as well as how it is spelt.
