About the class teacher
Welcome to our class learning page. I am so excited about the year ahead and look forward to getting to know you all. This year is my 3rd year at Moorfield, although I have actually been teaching now for 17 years!
Our PE day is on a Monday. Please come into school in your full PE kit and all black trainers or pumps.
Expectations for reading at home
Reading is a very important skill to learn and at Moorfield we expect children to read at least 3 times per week at home in addition to the reading lessons in school. If you do this, then you will be awarded a reading owl. You can be awarded a bronze, silver or gold owl depending on the amount of times you read during the half term.
History/Geography topic for term
This term, we will be studying the Arctic and Antarctic. We will learn about what is like to be an Antarctic explorer by reading Shackleton’s journey. We will do plenty of map work, locating the Arctic and Antarctic circle and the Equator on a map. In addition to this, we will look at how the Antarctic and Arctic are similar and different and how the areas are in danger.
This term in Science we will look at Animals including Humans and Electricity. In our Animals including Humans topic, we will be classifying animals and looking at food groups. We will also learn about the skeletal and digestive system. During our electricity topic, we will learn about electrical safety, identify appliances that run on electricity, construct simple circuits and recognise common insulators and conductors.
Homework days: SPAG/Reading/Maths
Reciprocal Reading homework is set every Monday and marked in class the following Monday. Maths and SPaG are set Friday and marked in class the following Friday. Spellings and test dates for the half term are issued at the beginning of the half term. Spelling tests are planned for Friday, but may be subject to change should the timetable be interrupted.
Well done for the effort you have put in to your learning so far this year, Year 3. I am very proud of how you have settled and are already behaving like juniors! Keep up the hard work :o).
