Welcome back to the Summer Term. Our new topic is The Romans.
We will be finding out what life was like in Ancient Britain and how it all changed under the rule of the Romans.
We will be visiting Colchester Castle in June and using resources there to find out even more about what the Romans were like.
I have included a Topic Web further down this page so you can see our focus in each subject for the term.
As the children are getting older we may do more reading in class as a whole class rather than in groups or with individuals. When we read as a class I will not be able to make a note in everyone's individual log but this does not mean that we are not reading and discussing texts every day.
* Ensure you have your reading book in school every day along with your reading log!
* Bring a healthy snack for break time.
* Make sure you have a water bottle in school as we have no water fountain upstairs. Remember to take it home for a clean every day.
* Full school uniform needs to be worn to school every day. This includes black school shoes and jumpers or cardigans.
Children will be allowed to take jumpers and cardigans off if they get hot, but they are needed in school daily.
It is impossible to find owners of jumpers or cardigans without names as they are all identical so please make sure all uniform is labelled.
Swimming is on Mondays but those who do not swim will be doing PE outside with me. This term we will focus on Tennis and Athletics.
Mr North now takes PE outside on Fridays. Children must have their kits in school for both of these days.
PE kit is shorts, T-shirt and plimsolls that fit.
Any child with ear-rings must either remove them before the lesson or take them out at home on that morning.
Please ensure everything is named as it makes it much easier to sort lost kit.
If you have any questions, feel free to catch me on the playground or make an appointment to see me via the school office.
Mrs T Mbonye.
Homework for this half-term.
The activities in the homework set can be completed in any order. Once a task has been completed, children can hand their book in to be marked. Children who complete all tasks will be awarded a certificate.
Reading is the most important activity to do at home every night and I will encourage both parents and children to make a note in their reading log once a week.
Spellings will be given out at the beginning of term and, when a child shows they have learned them, they will be awarded with a sticker from the deputy head Ms Meager. They will then get a new set to learn.
Children in Year 3 will be expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables this term.
Any help you give your child in work at home will really help their progress.
Again, ask me if you have any questions or worries.
