Welcome to Year 3!
Class 3’s project for the summer term is ‘How did the Romans change the world?’
We will begin with our amazing hook days making Roman shields, sculpted Roman busts from clay, Roman standards for battle, crushing grapes with our feet to make ‘wine’, and collaging a roman soldier to guard our class doorway! We will even find time to soak our feet in a Roman spa!
Our class novel is the fantastic, ‘Roman diary the Journal of Iliona- Roman slave which gives us a great insight into daily Ancient Roman life. We will be learning about all things Roman from aqueducts to chariots to volcanoes and much, much more!
We continue to experience our ‘51 things to do at Southwold’ and will be posting what we get up to on Class Dojo.
As ever we love to see the amazing project homework coming in to class. Please remember that your child must complete 6 Project Homework tasks over the term in addition to their weekly homework. Please ask if your child needs any help or resources.
We would love to see lots of reading medals in Class 3. Your child will get a certificate and a medal for reading at home – a bronze medal for reading 75 times at home, a silver medal for reading 150 times at home and a gold medal for reading 250 times at home. Please listen to your child read between 3 and 5 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record.
Your child will be given a spelling test and a times table test every Friday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. Children receive house points and Dojo’s for full marks in spellings and passing their times table test.
Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned to school the following Thursday if not before.
PE lessons are every Tuesday for the first half term, so please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school each week, including outdoor trainers and a hoody if needed. After Summer half term PE will be on Wednesday’s and we will also be swimming on Friday’s- details to follow.
Please can we remind you to make sure that your child is wearing sun cream for school as the weather improves and has a sun hat for break, lunch and P.E.
If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please do not hesitate to come and see us.
