Welcome back for the summer term.
Class Teacher = Ms Collier
Learning Assistant = Mrs Jackson
We hope everyone had a restful and a relaxing Easter break and enjoyed spending time with friends and family. As we start the Summer Term, we will continue with our weekly timetable. These will include our PE days, which are on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Our Wednesday PE lesson will in the form of swimming lessons, for which we will be walking to the Basildon sporting village to allow these lessons to take place.
In the Summer Term, we are continuing to focus on learning the times tables and weekly spellings, both can be found in your child’s home school diary. We do encourage the children to read at least 3 times a week.. Reading at home is so important and the children really appreciate receiving certificates in assembly for their efforts. As well as this, there is an achievement scheme for learning times table facts. We look forward to your children taking home lots of certificates again this term!
In English, your children will be reading Jake Cake and the Werewolf Teacher. The story is about a young boy who loses concentration in class but discovers his teacher is a werewolf. The children are going to love it!
In Numeracy, we will focus on basic maths skills involving counting, times tables and the four operations of number. During our topic sessions, the children will be learning how to use an atlas and a variety of geography skills which leads us into learning about European countries.
PE is still an important lesson and we strongly encourage that the children have their Ghyllgrove PE kits so that they can join in with all the fun! Our PE kit is a white t-shirt with red shorts and trainers. Children with long hair must have their hair tied back and NO jewellery can be worn during P.E.
If you have any questions please ask :)
Homework will be given out Friday and is due in on Tuesday. Year 3 teachers will be explaining each weeks focus.. Children will be given weekly spellings and are to continue with their times table learning.
Look out for more information on the curriculum that we will be studying over the course of the year in order to support your child as much as possible. Also, look out for any letters sent home or messages in the Home School Diary.
