Welcome to Class 3
Our teacher is Miss Curzon
Mrs Lupton and Mrs Ford are our teaching assistant
In Class 3 this term we have been learning how to build Art Bots and writing instructions on how to make them. In order to make our Art Bots we had to learn to read and follow instructions, how to make a circuit and have a good understanding of electronics. We made our prototype Art Bots and tested them to see what improvements we could make. Then a week later we made the Art Bots again with our improvements. It definitely took a lot of resilience! Once we had made sure our circuits were working, it was very exciting to watch them draw some brilliant rainbow patterns.
Each Thursday your child will be set homework, which is usually due in for the following Monday. Their homework normally includes a task on mathletics (children have their own log in details) www.mathletics.co.uk , spellings and one other piece which may be related to literacy, science or topic.
Spellings: each week your child will be given a list of spellings to learn for the following week, these spellings will consist of words we may come across in our learning and words year 3 are expected to know. I am sure your children will appreciate any help you can give them with learning their spellings.
Reading – each week I will set the class a challenge of reading 5 times a week at home, they will then earn free time on a Friday. We also have a star reader each week, the more you can hear your child read the better!
Here are some really fun and useful websites for games to help your learning:
