Our Current Class Text
Our first class text is 'Stone Age Boy' and linked to our History unit on 'Who were the first people in Britain?' We will begin the term by writing an adventure story in literacy.

For the first three weeks Miss Kay and Miss Chadwick are focusing on Place Value.
We will cover:
Step 1 Represent numbers to 100

Step 4 Hundreds
Step 5 Represent numbers to 1,000
Step 6 Partition numbers to 1,000

Tuesday 20th September 2022
Today in literacy we set up our own Stone Age Camp. We worked in teams to make an authentic camp, sang a campfire song and then had to pack up for the migration. This work will feed into our writing tomorrow.

By the end of year three the expectation is that all children will be confident with their 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 4s and 8s times tables. We will practise these at least three times a week during school. The children will need to use Times Tables Rock Stars at home for a least 10 minutes a day to practise these tables. All children have been provided with a login previously, but if you have lost it please don't hesitate to ask for a new one.
To access Times Tables Rock Stars please follow the link below and use the school postcode (OL5 OHT) to find our school.
Expectations for reading at home
Reading at home is very important in helping your child to learn new vocabulary and improve their spelling. Reading lets us explore new worlds and opens up our imagination.
Every child has been provided with their login details previously but if you have lost them please just ask. The link you will need to access Rising Stars is below. Our centre ID is 198939.
