Our School

Class 3

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.

Timetable

Curriculum Booklets

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.

Home Learning

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.

 Music Festival

Once again, Class 3 will be taking part in the Herts & Ware Primary Music Festival in March at the Drill Hall in Ware. Exact dates are not yet known, but we will be performing on either Monday19th, Tuesday 20th or Wednesday 21st. As many of the children will also be attending the Albert Hall Gala, we have already learnt the songs for the music festival. Could you please help your child practise at home by following this link to Paul Burrell's website where you can find the song words and backing tracks. We may also be singing The Love Cats by The Cure, and while this song needs to have a special arrangement created for the children, it would be good if they were able to listen to the song and start to learn the words. The original can be seen on Youtube using this link. However, please make sure you check the link as the comments section and advertising at the side may contain un-suitable  material (although it was fine at the time of writing this). Words can be downloaded here.
