We are having such a good time in Willow class. We have learnt so much already. So far we have learnt all about the Romans in our topic 'I am Warrior!' and then we learnt all about America and their Native Tribes in 'Road Trip USA!"
We are currently learnign about...
Rocks, Relics and Rumbles
Rocks, Relics and Rumbles. Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds. Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of historic Pompeii, frozen in time, then create blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava. Discover the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth’s breath taking power. Watch out. Volcanologists detect formidable rumblings from an extinct volcano in Scotland’s capital. Red alert! What would you do?
At Sutton Green we follow the White Rose Maths Scheme. White Rose Maths aims to deepen understanding, confidence and competence in maths
In Spring Term A, we are focusing on Multiplication & Divison, Money and Statistics.
In year 3 we are also learning our times-tables. Make sure you are playing TT Rockstars at home to improve your times-table abilities.
Outdoor P.E will be taught on a Tuesday with Miss Ikin and Indoor PE on a Friday with Mr Howsam.
Children to come into school wearing their P.E. kit on the days of P.E. (No uniform needed). Children need to have a pair of black/navy jogging bottoms, black/navy hoody and sturdy trainers for outdoor P.E. as well as their normal P.E kit.
Homework will be set on a Wednesday and is due in by the following Wednesday.
In Spring Term we will be using Google Classrooms more and more to set homework.
Your child will receive spellings and another piece of homework either Maths, English or Topic related. Spelling books should be handed in on a Tuesday at the latest so we can prepare the next lot of spellings for your children to learn at home.
Reading books and journals should be in school every day, as our shared reading slot may change. Please note these are checked at least once a week.
Regular reading throughout the week is also expected and it has a massive impact on your child's progress across all subjects. The children are incentivised on how many times they read, so the more times they read at home to an adult the better!
Google Classrooms (Home Learning)
At the beginging of Autumn Term 2 all children recieved a google classrooms log in. This term (Spring A) we will be using this more and more. It is where children can access all their home learning if they are having to isolate. To practise using this Miss Ikin will be setting homework through google classroom so that both students and parents become familiar with it. If at any point you need help with google classroom including logging in please contact Miss Ikin through the willow class email.
