Welcome to Class 3
Class 3 Half Term Homework
Writing Competition- A Persuasive Letter to Scrooge
Class 3 Newsletter- Term 1
I am delighted with all pupils in Class3. They have worked enthusiastically this term and have produced some amazing work, particularly in English, maths and art. Well done to all.
In English, we have enjoyed reading Oliver Twist and The Railway Children as they link to our class project on the Victorians. Our essential question is ‘Why did Oliver ask for more?’ The children have written fantastic newspaper reports about a landslide in The Railway Children and are currently writing and editing a sequel which, when finished, will be published and available to buy on Amazon. We are very excited! I am sure that the final result will be brilliant as there are many talented writers in Class 3.
In Art, we have studied the Victorian designer, William Morris and the children have created their own beautiful designs that are linked to nature and reflect his style. The class are excellent at critiquing and helping each other to improve their work. We are currently studying Lowry and the children’s final outcome is to create their own scene from Oliver Twist reflecting Lowry’s style and technique.
In maths, the children have learnt about place value and we have moved on to the four methods of calculation. They are particularly good at long multiplication and enjoy the ‘Turtle Head’ method. I am sure that they will be more than happy to explain.
Homework will be handed out on a Monday and will be handed in the following Monday.
PE and swimming are on Friday at the Meres Leisure Centre. Swimming kits only need to be in school on a Friday but PE kits must be in school Monday to Friday.
