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 2  - What makes the Earth angry?

In Literacy, we will be focusing on the features of diary entries and will study the story of the recent Japanese Tsunami. After, the children will create explanation texts explaining the geological timeline of the Earth.

In Maths, we will be understanding how to read statistics. We will then move on to applying our times tables to work out perimeter. Please continue to support your child to tell the time.

For Geography, we will discover many of the natural disasters that affect the Earth - tsunamis, floods, hurricanes and the significance of the Pacfic "Ring of Fire"

Our Science continues with a physics focus by investigating forces and magnetic pulls.

In our RE we will be looking closely at the word of the Lord as the children will then learn about the importance of the Eucharist as we prepare for receiving our first Holy Communion. We will then move on to understanding why Christians share during Lent.

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.
