Welcome to Class 3. Here you will find useful information about what work we will be doing this term. As the term progresses we will put up some photographs and examples of work, so please check back later.
You can download Class 3's curriculum booklet here.
You can also download the Year 5 and Year 6 Maths curriculum booklets for this term. Please note, these are a rough basis for our weekly planning that are subject to change as and when the need arises.
Class 3's English curriculum can also be downloaded here. Once again, this is a guide to aid our planning and can also change when necessary.
In Class 3, children are given one or two pieces of homework each week on a Friday. This needs to be completed and handed in on the following Wednesday. In addition, at the beginning of each term, children will be given a home learning topic grid. They need to choose an activity from the grid to complete every two weeks. A different amount of house points will be earnt depending on the activity chosen.
Children will also be given a new spelling activity to complete each week which will help them learn a particular spelling rule which they will be tested on weekly.
It also expected that the children will read at home every day, keeping their reading record up to date.
