Class 3 - Mrs Flynn & Mrs Walker

Class 3 - Mrs Flynn & Mrs Walker

Welcome to Our Lady's Class 3 page, where we aim to become missionaries of Jesus through our actions, relationships and spiritual opportunities. We work hard as a team to create a compassionate learning environment that encourages respect for everyone in our classroom so each child feels valued. In class our children are encouraged to reach their potential and develop resilience to face new learning challenges each day. We are lucky to have the support of our teaching assistants, Miss Horan & Mrs Uveges to help children on their learning journey. We love to learn through our broad, adventurous curriculum which aims to ignite our children's curiosity. We learn to love one another by embracing difference and celebrating the success of positive relationships. If you would like to take a look at our current learning, please visit our class blog.

  • Lent 1  - Crazy Caves - What lurks underneath the city of Nottingham?

In Literacy, we will be focusing on the features of Poetry including performing rap rhyme and rhythm. Then we will create our own cave poems using metaphoric descriptions.

In Maths, we will begin to learn our times tables to apply them into multiplication and division. We will then move forward to investigate measurements such as money and perimeter. Please continue to support your child to tell the time.

For History, we will uncover life in Anglo-Saxon Nottingham looking underground at the city of caves. We will examine their purpose and how they still exist today.  

Our Science continues with a physics focus by investigating the importance of different rocks and soils and how this affects the earth's surface.

In our RE we will explore the Church's Liturgical Year, looking closely at the word of the Lord. Then the children will then learn about the importance of the Eucharist as we prepare for receiving our first Holy Communion. 

Children will receive one piece of homework and a set of spellings every Friday. Homework is due in the following Wednesday and spellings are tested every Friday. It is important that your child continues to practice their times tables. In Year 3, children need to know the related division facts e.g 4x2 = 8 therefore 8 ÷ 2 = 4.

Please encourage your child to read regularly, around 20 minutes every night if possible, and record it in their dairy. You can support your child's comprehension skills further by supporting them to use a dictionary to find out the meanings of new vocabulary.

To ensure every child is working at the expected standard, we have a non-negotiables list of skills which the children will be working towards. If your child is on the SEN register, you will have been given other target sheets to use instead. It would be helpful if you supported your child with these skills at home.
