Welcome to class 3. In our class you will find Miss Byrne, Miss Doy and Mrs Allcock and We all work really hard to make sure the children in our class have a great time and learn in a fun way. This term we are studying Living Things and the Circle of Life in Science; The Northamptonshire Shoe Industry in History and the physical geography of the UK.
You can help your child in the following ways.
- Ask them what they have been doing in school and encourage them to do research (via books or the internet) to further their learning.
- Read with your child every day. We have pledged to read to them every day for 10 minutes. Please try to match this at least. While you are listening to them read, ensure they are using expression and intonation. If it is not enjoyable for you, it is not enjoyable for them. Ask them questions about what they are reading. If they do not understand what they are reading, there is not point. Read lots of different types of literature: recipes, instructions, comics, newspapers, magazines, fiction and non-fiction. It is all relevant.
- Test them on their spellings regularly. Make sure they are learning then using the look, say, cover, write method.
- Encourage use of Times Tables Rock Star and Numbots. They have access to this invaluable resource and it costs the school a large sum of money. Make good use of it.
