Welcome to Class 3!
Our teacher is Miss Gillin.
We are very lucky to have Mrs Hunter and Mrs Mullane helping
us in our class.
We have PE with Mr Hawthorne on a Tuesday and PE with Miss Gillin
on a Friday.
Please ensure that PE kits are in school and have your child's name
clearly labelled on every item.
Happy Easter to you all, we hope you have a lovely break!
We have given each child a phonics resource pack to look at over the holiday. It consists of phonetically decodable words, both real and nonsense words, to sound out and blend together. Also, we provided sound mats for every child. These contain all of the sounds that the children have learned in phonics sessions. These are yours to keep, please use them as you wish. Thank you for your continued support.
Homework, home reading and spellings
Please ensure your child has their reading folder, with their reading book and reading record, in school every day. Your child will have their book changed once a week. You will be informed which day your child’s book will be changed.
Your child will have a spelling test every Tuesday morning. Homework folders and spelling diaries must be handed in on a Tuesday so we can update them with their latest test score and new spellings. Your child's spelling test scores can be found on each spelling list.
If the spelling diary has not been handed in, we are unable to record their attained scores and your child's new spellings will be given on a separate piece of paper.
We will remind the children every morning to take their reading folders, homework folders and any letters or forms out of their bag. Please remind your child that these must be handed in.
Every Wednesday your child will receive their new set of spellings. Your child may also receive a piece of handwriting practice or a piece of maths homework, set on MyMaths, to be completed for the following Tuesday.
Lights, camera, action!
We have been looking at different fairy tales in our English lessons. We have been looking carefully at the characters and the story. Well, we thought the best way to understand the characters and the plot would be to act out different parts of the story. We had so much fun acting out 'Little Red Riding Hood'.
World Book Day 2019
What a brilliant day we had on World Book Day. We came in to our classroom to find our teacher had been turned into a frog! We took part in a parade to show everyone in the school our fantastic costumes. It was so much fun seeing all the different book characters!
Our trip to the Museum of Liverpool
We spent the day at the Museum of Liverpool. As part of our history topic, 'Blast from the past', we took part in a 'Toys through time' workshop where we became historians and discovered toys from different eras. It was so fun being able to experience what children years ago played with and compare them to what we play with today. The, we became artists and drew still life drawings of old modes of transport. We were given time to explore the museum and look at Liverpool's history. We had such a fantastic day, we were even complimented on our outstanding behaviour!
We love reading in Class 3!
Look at us having fun in the snow!
We love computing in Class 3!
We love using the iPads to develop our basic skills in computing! We love working together with our friends to explore new apps and websites.
Christmas celebrations in Class 3
Christmas in Class 3 was so much fun! We decorated our classroom with a huge paper chain, it could fit round our classroom twice! We did lots of Christmas activities and even performed in the KS1 Nativity. We loved Christmas in Class 3!
We had a very special visitor is Class 3 who left a trail of frosty, white footprints in our classroom. It was Santa! He came to visit our classroom to deliver a Santa Cam to Class 3. He sent us a very exciting video to watch and gave us a very special job to do. He wanted us to design a new sleigh. We had so much fun designing and evaluating!
In our English lessons, we have been looking at writing lists. We have discussed where we have seen lists and why people use lists. We have even written a to-do list for Miss Gillin!
On Monday 19th November, we came into school to find a post box outside our classroom. We had no idea why it was there or what we were going to do with it. Our teacher then asked us,
'Why do some children write lists at this time of year?'
We got very excited as we knew the answer and we finally understood why there was a post box. We were going to write a Christmas list to send to Father Christmas!
We planned our lists very carefully, thinking of toys, games and chocolate. Then, we thought about the things we wanted that money can't buy, such as happiness and peace.
We wrote our lists using our best handwriting and decorated them with drawings.
Look at us posting our letters to Father Christmas!
We really enjoy our computing lessons in Class 3. We get to use the iPads or tablets and we work with our friends to develop our computing skills.
We have been learning all about Remembrance Day. We watched a short animation and discussed the significance of the poppy. We then created our own poppies out of tissue paper. As a class, we created a poppy mosaic out of lasagne! We painted the lasagne sheets and then broke them into little pieces to make mosaic tiles.
We have been thinking of ways to be our 'Best Selves' and 'Super Selfers'. We watched the video 'The Pig of Happiness' and thought of ways we could spread happiness.
