Mr J Blaber
Welcome to the Maple Class page! We hope you had an exciting Summer holiday and are ready for a new term of learning! It is great to see all of you back in class and eager to carry on finding out new things.
Our topic this term is called Scrumdiddlyumptious. We will be looking at different food groups that help us to have a healthy, balanced diet and where our food originates from.
This unit will end with the children creating a healthy fruit smoothie using what we have learned!
This will include:
- studying packaging and design
- using adverts to promote a product
(Curriculum map to follow)
For all our PE sessions children will need to bring their full PE kit - blue/black shorts, white T-shirt and trainers (including tracksuits for colder days). Children with ear-rings will have to remove them or cover them with tape - to be provided by home.
PE Session 1: Monday (Indoors)
PE Session 2: Tuesday (Outdoors)
Homework will be set on Google Classroom on a Thursday and will be due on the following Tuesday. Those families who do not have access to Google Classroom are to let the class teacher know and a paper copy will be provided.
It is important that you are giving your child the opportunity to read to you every day. Please record this in their planner.
New spellings are set on a Friday and should to be practiced at home each night in preparation for a spellings test the following Friday.
Don't forget to go on Times Tables Rock Stars! This is a great opportunity to challenge your Maths skills at home!
In Maple class we are very excited about improving our reading and comprehension by reading every day both at home and at school.
Some of year 3 have started using a new program in school to help improve their reading comprehension. This program is called Accelerated Reader.Accelerated Reader helps teachers manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Students can choose a book that is perfect for their current reading level and then read it at their own pace. When finished, they take a short quiz on the computer. Passing the quiz is an indication that they have understood what they read.
