Chestnut Class - Year 3
Meet the Teacher presentation
Welcome to Chestnut Class
Welcome to Chestnut Class and Year 3! Mrs Peel teaches us on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Mrs Dykes teaches us on a Thursday. Mrs Fisher-Jones also works in our class every morning and on a Tuesday afternoon. We are looking forward to settling into the juniors.
This is what we will be learning about in the Autumn term...
English – We will reading the book 'The Egyptian Cinderella' and comparing it to the Cinderella story that we already know. We will also be reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.
Maths – We will be busy starting our new maths scheme 'Red Rose maths' which will encourage the children to develop their problem solving skills. Times tables are also really important in the lower juniors. By the end of Year 3 we need to know our 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables within 6 seconds and we will start working towards this during the Autumn term.
Science – Our topic for this half term is 'teeth and eating' and we will be finding out about our teeth and how to keep them healthy and clean.
Geography and History - Our topic this half term is The Ancient Egyptians and we will be finding out lots of interesting information about this topic.
Music – We will be learning to play the glockenspeil this term.
PE – PE is on Mondays and Tuesdays.
RE - Mrs Houghton will be teaching us RE on a Tuesday afternoon.
PHSE - We will be learning about new beginnings this term.
Spanish - On Wednesdays, we enjoy learning Spanish with Mrs Culshaw.
Reading regularly with your child is so important and links to all areas of learning. Please listen to your child 5 times a week and record in the reading record book.
Times tables - We will be looking at the times table rockstars website in the first few weeks of this term. Practising on this at home when your child has brought their password home will really help to improve their times tables knowledge.
Spellings - Spellings will be set on Fridays for a test the following Friday. This will link to the spelling pattern taught in the spelling lessons in class.
