WELCOME TO Class 3
What a fantastic start we have had to the year. Class 3 took part in the Land, sand and stone festival helping to create a record breaking piece of sand art. As a school we were extremely lucky to be visited by the Royal Institution inspiring pupils and parents with their fantastic science display. Supporting our drive to Reduce, reuse and recycle we also participated in a creative day organised by Hull Scrap store building models which you can now see within the school grounds.
Class 3 continued their research into pollution and recycling with a very informative talk from the Marine Sanctuary and pupils also participated in a beach litter pick.
Next 1/2 term we will be looking at poetry, fiction and continuing our focus on how to help the environment. We will be using our problem solving skills to try and make our model wind turbines create electricity- Mrs Sutcliffe has ordered some DC motors!
Enjoy the holidays and remember to read. I have just finished Soldier Dog by Sam Angus- a brilliant book, it brought a tear to my eye. I'm now reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell and have Hatchet and The Nothern Lights lined up next.
Remember to keep looking at the Grammar Revision for Year 6 which you will find under School information. It's never to soon to start some revising!
Pupils are expected to read at least three times a week and have their reading record signed by an adult. Children who have a reading journal are expected to write a detailed account of their reading each week.
Pupils also have spellings to learn and put in sentences along with work set by Mrs Garthwaite each Wednesday- usually maths based.
Please remember PE kit needs to be in school all week.
If you ever have any queries however small please do not hesitate to contact either class teacher.
In case you have a spare few moments below are some links to flashcards which can be printed to help with year Class 3 spellings. Some are highlighted to help remember patterns or segment words- pick the one you think suits you.
There is also a link to a spelling website with various games. I have added our spellings to the link below, so if you have time for extra practice have a go.
Spelling games I enjoyed missing letters, scramblers and spelleriums. Let me know what you think.
