During this academic year, we will be communicating a lot more through the use of Class Dojo and sharing lots of the children's wonderful work here too. I will be awarding Dojo/house points too.
If you need to contact me at any time throughout the year, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I can be reached through the messaging feature on your Class Dojo account, via email or in school, by appointment with the school office.
Our Curriculum themes for the Advent Term at Holy Trinity are: Belonging and Changes/Events.
In Come and See our three topics for this term are People, Called and Gifts.
Our English work will be based around the books
In Maths our topics are:
In Geography we are looking at the question, 'Where do I belong?' and will be learning about UK rivers with a particular focus on the River Trent.
Our History topic after half-term is about changes in the UK since the Romans.
We have two Science topics this term. The first is about Sound and we will be exploring how to answer the question 'What makes pitch and volume change?'. Our second Science topic focuses on electricitiy and we will be answering the question 'Can bulbs be made brighter or dimmer?'. This will link in to our DT challenge which is to create a light up Christmas decoration.
Our Art work this term is sculpture; we will learn about the sculptor Anthony Gormley and be using his work to inspire us to create a sculpture for Newark.
We will have two PE lessons each week and over the course of the term we will cover Gymnastics, Hockey, Dance/Yoga and Handball.
Our Computing lessons will look at E-safety and Digital Literacy and in French we will be learning how to greet each other as well as counting up to 20
On Wednesday afternoon we will have a Forest School session with Mrs Smith in Ecoland.
In Year 3 our homework is given out on Tuesday and should be completed by the following Monday. Homework will include:
This year, we are actively encouraging the children to complete and upload their homework to their Class Dojo portfolios, either as a document or a photograph of the completed task. If you require any support with this, please do get in touch.
Regular reading is an incredibly important skill. Please do encourage your child to read at home as much as possible and support them by talking about the text and asking questions to check that they have understood what they have read. Please sign or initial their reading diary to show when this has been done. I will be checking reading diaries on your child's reading day (check your child's diary for their reading day) and would expect at least three signatures over the course of a week. If your child is struggling with this, then please let me know.
Please support your child to learn and practise their times tables at home. This will help them in all areas of their maths work. All children have access to the Times Tables Rockstar online platform which is a great way to practise and develop speed and confidence when recalling times tables facts.
PE will take place on Tuesday and Friday. On these days your child should attend school wearing their PE kit. It is expected that your child will have the appropriate indoor and outdoor PE kit for these days in order to access the sessions appropriately. The correct PE kit consists of: a white t-shirt, red shorts and plimsolls for indoor sports. Trainers are required for outdoor activities. A tracksuit can also be worn, especially when the weather is colder.
Please also ensure any earrings are removed for P.E. days
