Welcome to Willow Class!

This page will give you lots of information about what we are learning, key dates and allow us to celebrate our fantastic work! 

Our Topics:

  • Shaping Britain -Stone Age to Iron Age
  • Fantastic Beasts - Real vs Fantasy
  • A Kingdom at War - Anglo Saxons & Vikings
  • Light & Shadow
  • Around the World in 20 Days
  • Humans are Animals Too!

 

 P.E.

P.E. sessions will take place every Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesdays sessions are outdoor so please ensure your child has an outdoor kit with jacket available. We ask that children arrive at school in their P.E. kits Tuesday morning ready for their session but please remember to bring a labelled bag with their uniform in ready for the children to get changed into after this session. Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled with class name and child's name to avoid any items going missing. 

 

 Forest School 

*CURRENTLY POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS*
Forest School will take place every Friday so please ensure children bring their Forest School Kits on Friday morning. We aim to participate in Forest School for the full school year which means children will need appropriate clothing, particularly for the winter months, for example, wellie boots, waterproofs etc.
Forest School gives children the opportunity to explore nature on the school grounds, with opportunities to build dens, use different tools and have lots of fun! 


Homework

Homework will be given to children every Friday and will need to be returned the following Thursday. We aim to link homework to an area of our current Topic, Maths or English. Please encourage them to complete this to the best of their abilities.

If you have any questions regarding homework, please do not hesitate contacting me.

Reading

Please ensure that children are reading at least 4 times a week. This needs to be noted in their Home School Diary and signed by an adult. Rewards are given at the end of each half term for children who are reading 4 times or more each week. Reading diaries will be checked every Friday morning.

Children can change their reading books as often as they wish. 

 

Times Tables

 In Year 3 children need to know their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times table. We will revise the 2, 5 and 10 but children will be introduced to the 3, 4 and 8 times table over the year as this is a Year 3 requirement. We encourage lots of practice and support at home so children are familiar with these times tables ready for our challenges in class.
