Welcome to Otters!
This year Otters class teacher will be Miss Hook and Mr Collins will be our fantastic teaching assistant.
If you have any queries or concerns please to not hesitate to ask. The classroom door will be open from 8:30am and I will also be available to speak to after school.
In Otters class we always try our very best, never give up and
we love a challenge!
In Literacy we are reading a story called 'Footpath of Flowers'. We will be writing our own stories using this.
In Maths we are going to be doing Place Value and then moving on to Addition and Subtraction.
Our topic this term is 'One World'. The children have created a list of questions that they would like to know the answers to about our world. We will be basing our lessons around these questions.
Daily reading is essential to develop understanding and comprehension in ALL subjects. Every Otter at least FOUR times a week. They can read independently; to a sibling or parent; or to any very kind adult!
The children are responsible for changing their own reading books at school and should know what type of book they should be reading.
Now the children are in Year 3, they are able to write in their reading records themselves to record reading they have done at home! These will be taken in on a Friday morning to be checked.
It is really important that your child has their PE kit in school at all times. It is best to bring it into school on the first day of term and keep it in for the duration (we will send it home if it needs a wash). We often have special guest visitors coming into school to teach exciting PE lessons so every child needs their kit. At the moment, we have PE on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Every otter has been given a MyMaths login and password, this will allow them to go onto the MyMaths website and complete their allocated homework tasks. Each task will have a date due in, but if your child would like an extension or wants even more maths activities then please let me know.
