Welcome to Foxes Class. We are a fantastic group of Year 3 children.
Our Teacher is Mrs Bellis and our HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant) is Mrs Elliott.
For the next few weeks, due to Mrs Bellis having an operation on her hand, we will be taught by Mrs Davis.
Mrs Bellis is hoping to be back very soon
Mrs Bellis and Mrs Elliott's planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA) is on Tuesday afternoons. During this time Foxes will be taught by Mrs Helm.
We are very excited to start our new school year in our new classroom, which is ready for us to take part in lots of fun and fabulous learning. Remember FOXES are FUN, FIT and FOCUSED to learn.
Our first Topic, Transport was amazing. We all learnt so much and were enthusiastic learners.
This half term our topic is 'The Tempest'. We will be investigating the weather, the Tudors and reading a simplified version of Shakespeare's very own Tempest!
Our games lesson will take place on Wednesday afternoons, the weather is getting cold so we need to ensure we have a warm tracksuit as well as a pair of black shorts and a school P.E. T shirt in school.
PE will be on Friday afternoons and we will need shorts and a school P.E. T shirt.
It is important that we have the correct, named kit in school at all times.
Please encourage an adult to hear you read every day! We will continue to regularly check reading books and help you to change them when necessary. Please ask your adult to use the reading records to comment on your reading and for any feedback about your books, reading habits etc.!
We are continuing with the new exciting style of homework, where the you will be able to choose different projects to complete over the half term. Each child needs to complete 5 POWer points with the tasks they choose. This should enable the you to become more involved in your learning due to the homework being child led.
At the end of the term we will invite your parents, carers or Grandparents in to see all your fabulous completed projects.
There is still an expectation that you will practise your times tables weekly using RMeasimaths, J2E Blast and Top Marks web sites. We have league tables in class for a 3 websites. How many house points can you earn?
Learning the words on the 3 and 4 spellings list is also important and we will be regularly testing you to see how many you can spell. Travelling to and from school is always a good time for oral practise!
We will also be continuing to practise telling the time so any time spent looking at analogue and digital clocks will be time well spent!
Foxes Out And About
Mr Foxy, our class mascot, will be having an adventure every weekend when he is taken home by one of our class members. Mr Foxy has his own diary where you can write about the adventures you have had with Mr Foxy during the week. The children have been asked to look after Mr Foxy really well! Please remember to write a few sentences about where Mr Foxy has been, and to try and put a photo of you and Mr Foxy, in the special book.
If you want to share any positive thoughts about your child's learning and progress then please do! Write it in their reading records and we will endeavour to reply as soon as possible. The same goes for any difficulties that your child may be experiencing. Don't leave it, let us know. It will have a huge impact on your child's learning!
