Class 3

Welcome to Class 3!

Mr Price and Mrs Shaw welcome all pupils, parents and carers to our class page. The learning for each half-term will be updated, along with photos of our work. PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays and children need to come to school wearing correct kit.



For this Spring term, we will be closely looking at Philip Pullman's brilliant fairytale adventure, The Firework-Maker's Daughter. 





This half-term, we are looking at length, perimeter and area. We continue to practise our times tables as these are key for progression of arithmetic skills and underpin the Maths curriculum in KS2 and beyond. TT Rockstars should be used at least 3 times a week at home, in addition to any maths homework.


Some useful websites for you to use at home are: (especially the Daily 10 section which the children use at school)



We are looking at Animals including Humans. We will be sorting animals by their features, exploring similarities and differences, and finding out what allows life to survive and thrive.




Our topic this half-term is all about the UK. Children will be using atlases and testing their mapping skills to identify cities, counties and water sources across the kingdom.



We will be looking at Word processing as well as our ongoing discussions about how to stay safe online.




Class 3 will be learning the numbers to 20 in French through games and songs.




Each week we look at how a particular artist represents people using a variety of techniques, including sculpture, sketch and paint.




By looking closely at the lives of two children in Malawi, we are able to discuss our topic of equality, challenge stereotypes and develop respect for all.



We are looking at Judaism.



Our PE days are Tuesdays with Mr Price and Fridays with Bee Active.




We are looking at an anti-bullying rap through the Charranga Music Scheme. The children have already begun to learn the lyrics of a song and come up with their own actions.
