Class 3 (Dragonflies)

Welcome to the Dragonflies Class

Class 3 consists of Year 5 and Year 6. Our class teacher is Miss Andrew and Miss Roberts also does a wonderful job of supporting us in our learning.

This second part of Autumn term, our history topic continues to be 'The Victorians' and in geography we will be studying 'Biomes and Vegetation Belts'. We will be studying French as part of our Modern Foreign Language and as part of our RE curriculum, we will be learning about Christianity: 'Incarnation'. We will also be touching upon 'The Christmas Story' near the end of this unit. In science, we will be exploring the topic 'Earth and Space'. We will be continuing the Autumn building on our knowledge of Multiplication and Division in maths and honing in on our English skills, covering transcription, vocabulary, spelling, punctuation, grammar and reading. We have recently completed a wonderful poetry unit and will be studying a Non-Fiction unit that will take us up to the Christmas Holidays.
 
PE for Class 3 is on Monday afternoons. Please ensure your child wears their full and proper PE kit in every Monday. Please see our PE uniform policy as we pride ourselves on our children looking their smartest. Our class page and Dojo will be kept as up-to-date as possible so that you can see all of our wonderful learning! This is where you will see all of my notices so please do get in contact with me if you are not yet logged on to see your child's Dojo page.

Reading is really important and we want our children to develop a love of reading and books. We are using the Accelerated Reader scheme in school and your child is able to choose a book at their reading level to take home and enjoy! They will then be able to take a quiz to see how well they understood the book and accumulate reading points. Talking about the text is important. You can ask your child questions to help encourage their reading comprehension. More information can be found on the Oxford Owl website or pop a message to me on dojo to seek any support. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/oxford-owl-videos/reading-comprehension-videos/. 
 
In our classroom we believe in being aspirational, in working hard to achieve our goals and in never giving up! We are a rights respecting school and our class charter helps us to remember to respect each others' rights in class and school. We are a 'Healthy School' which means we encourage your child to bring in low sugar snacks, water instead of juice and a healthy lunch.
 
If you have any questions, queries or problems throughout the year then please feel free to make contact through dojo or call the school to arrange a socially-distanced meeting.
 
Please see documents below such as the curriculum overview and our homework menu.
 
Thank you for your support.

Miss Andrew
