Class 3

Can I please remind Class 3 that we need plastic bottles (500ml if possible) for one of our activities on the STEM day this Thursday. We need enough bottles for each child in the class so any extra bottles (with lids) would be really helpful.

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

Spellings 9.3.20

The 6 high frequency spellings that we are going to focus on this week are: how, height, length, both, interest and some.

We are also focussing on the ‘sh’ sound when it is spelt with a ‘ch’.

This includes words such as- chef, charade, chalet, chute, machine, brochure and parachute.

Please take the time to practice this spelling rule with your child/children at home throughout the week.

Thank you for your continued support.

Design Technology

Over the next couple of weeks, the children will be making their mini Roman chariots.

They have designed their chariots and will be using a range of materials to create them. I will send a copy of their designs home to remind them what they have chosen to use.

Please could you and your child/children do your best to collect the materials they need for their chariots. These could be items such as cereal boxes for the main structure, milk bottle lids for wheels and straws for the wheel axles.ย 

It would be fantastic if the children could bring in their materials by next Wednesday (5th Feb). We will have materials/objects available for the children to use but your help would be appreciated.ย 

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚


The 6 high frequency spellings that we are going to focus on this week are describe, want, kind, probably, continue and last.

We are also focussing on the suffix ‘ture’.

This includes words such as- adventure, capture and future. We have also looked at word endings that sound like ‘ture’ but are spelt -cher. For example, teacher and richer.

Please take the time to practice these spellings with your child at home throughout the week.

Thank you for your continued support.


Just a little message for parents/carers about Class 3’s spelling activities and homework.

At the beginning of each week, I introduce 6 new high frequency spellings that we read, write and practice. If the children spell any incorrectly, they write them into their spelling log book (this should come home every Friday and come back into school on Monday)

Throughout the week, the children then complete different activities based on a new spelling rule that they are learning – e.g words ending in ‘ing’. The children then choose 5 words from these activities to write in their log books, along with any of the high frequency words that they then need to practice at home.

Thank you for your support with spellings and homework ๐Ÿ™‚


Christmas Party

On the last day (Friday 20th) Class 3 will be having a Christmas Party. The children will already be in non-uniform/Christmas jumpers but they can also bring in a toy or game that they would like to play with during the day (no valuables or electronics please).

We will be providing some party snacks for the children while they watch a film in the afternoon but if your child/children could bring in a snack to share for the party then that would be brilliant.

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

Secret Santa

In class 3 we have decided to do ‘Secret Santa’.

The children have been given the name of somebody else in our class to get a gift for. We have set a maximum budget of ยฃ3.00 to spend on a gift, but homemade gifts are great too ๐Ÿ™‚

Please can the children bring the gifts into school for the last day of term (20th December). The gifts need to be wrapped and labelled with who they are for but not who they are from.
