Dear Parents, 

 

We are so pleased to welcome the children and you to Green Class. This year will be a wonderful year full of learning and fun, not to mention a year of change for your children as they move from Key Stage 1 into Year 3. The exciting and challenging curriculum in Year 3 will give the children access to a variety of different experiences both inside and outside of the classroom.  

Mrs Hadfield will lead the class on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; Mrs Maumy will lead on Thursday and Friday. Mrs Cliff and Miss Threadgold are in class to support the children too.

This year we have lots of exciting topics planned, where the children will build on a love for learning and make more magical memories. In the first two weeks back, our learning will be based on Commotion in the Ocean by Giles Andrae. Green Class will look at the oceans of the world, plastic pollution, write riddles about sea creatures, use musical instruments to create sounds of the sea and look at how we can make a difference by recycling and lots, lots more.

After this, our topic will have a science focus on Forces, as we try to answer the question ‘Can paperclips work like a magnet?’ (Please see the Autumn Term plans for more information).  We will use the Iron man by Ted Hughes as a stimulus for this topic and look at how all types of forces influence our lives today. Running alongside this we have our history topic which will focus on Stone Age to Iron Age, and we have a fantastic Stone Age Forest School Day planned for Friday 22nd October (more details to follow). 

 Some housekeeping reminders:

Snacks – Please send snacks in a small, named container or with their name written on the snack. Healthy snacks which do not contain any nuts please.  

Reading - We will read with your child every day as part of a whole class guided reading session. Reading is such a vital part of your child’s learning so please continue to read at home with your child; 10 minutes a day really does make all the difference. In Green Class we run a sticker system to encourage a regular reading practice. Please write in your child’s diary that they have read, and they will get a sticker. Don't worry about what you write in the diary, just write ‘read’ if needs be, just so they can get a sticker. They will earn up to 4 stickers a week. 

Spellings-We are trialling a new system to the way we teach spelling in Green Class this year. More information will follow on this.  

Homework – In Green Class the children will be given weekly homework on a Friday, which should be handed in on the following Wednesday for marking. 

PE - PE this term will be on a Monday and Tuesday. Please continue to send your child into school wearing PE kit on those days. 

Pencil cases- Your child will be given their own pencil case and equipment to keep in school. They will not need to bring in any further stationery. 

Finally, please put your child’s name on ALL their belongings!  

 

If you have any queries or concerns then please come and see Mrs Maumy or Mrs Hadfield, send us a message in the journal or alternatively you can contact us via email rhadfield@peartreeprimary.co.uk or smaumy@peartreeprimary.co.uk 

 

In advance, we would like to thank all parents and guardians for your support, enthusiasm and most importantly thank you for trusting us with your amazing children. Let’s get started on a wonderful year! 

 

Mrs Hadfield, Mrs Maumy, Mrs Cliff and Miss Threadgold
