Lion (Year 3)
Welcome to Lion Class!
Hi we warmly welcome you to our class page. This page is here to give you some information about life in Year 3!
Lion class is taught by Mrs Sandmann and we are supported by Mrs Hull. On a Monday Mrs Corner teaches the children topic and RE and then takes the children swimming in the afternoon.
Home learning is sent out on a Wednesday and is expected back in the following Tuesday. If you are struggling with any part of the homework please pop a note on Dojos or in the homework book and I will discuss it with you.
The enjoyment of reading is one of the biggest gifts you can have! I aim to share my passion and love of reading with you all. We have many new and exciting texts that we will share as the year progresses. We have a class text that we read for pleasure. We are logging the number of books we can read this year! I wonder what our total number will be?
Our class text at the moment is...….
So far we are finding it really funny!
Again because reading is so incredibly important we use good quality texts to support the teaching of the English curriculum.
We have been looking at the author Anthony Browne. The first text was 'Into the forest' and we are currently studying 'Gorilla'. We have written diary entries from the persepective of the boy with the red shoes, a recount of the story and setting descriptions.
We started looing at how to put direct speech into our writing too!
In Maths we are revising place value in three digit numbers. Can you explain what a three digit number is? We are adding them together and subtracting them!
Not only do we practice our calculations we also complete problems too. This problem solving helps us to place maths in a context. To check that we have a deep understanding of a context we then complete reasoning questions. This is where we explain 'how we know' and 'prove it!'.
We have swimming on a Monday and PE on a Friday afternoon. Can long hair be tied back and earrings taken out please.
Mrs Corner is teaching the children all about The Romans!
