Welcome to Candytuft Class!
Hi everyone, welcome to our class page. I am Miss Berrington and I am very excited to be teaching year 3 again this year. As well as teaching, my other passions include Derby County, Great British bake off and Strictly! I can't wait for the autumn term to start rolling as we have a brilliant topic to kick off with.
For the first term, our topic will be BUILDINGS. We will begin by looking at some of the most famous, striking and significant structures around the world. We will investigate when the first structures were built in Britain and look at how they have changed over time. We will use our maths skills to plot timelines and our investigative skills to learn about how we know about buildings constructed in the past.
We will check planners on a Monday and Friday, so please leave us a note if you wish. Our focus for homework this term is Mymaths, times tables SPaG and reading. PE kits will need to be in school on Tuesdays and Fridays. Spag homework and My maths will be given out on alternate Fridays. Children will be given a slip for their diary each week so they know which homework they have.
Spelling tests will take place every Friday after the first week. 10 random spellings will be tested each week from the year 3 list. Our objective is that children will begin to internalise the spellings they need to know, rather than just learn a new list each week for a test. Please do not worry if your child has low scores to begin with, we will see progress as the term continues.
