Mrs Lindblad's Class 2020 - 2021
Welcome to our Class Page
Welcome to the Summer Term of Year 3. I hope that you enjoyed the Easter holidays and are looking forward to continuing the super work that you started following lockdown. We will spend this half term working on the story topic 'The Highland Falcon Thief'. We have non-chronological reports, brochures and poetry planned and hope that you continue to enjoy our writing activities in particular and you did before Easter.
I will provide you with a weekly learning journey below to let you know what we will be covering over the coming week so that you will be able to support your child where possible and talk to them about what they have been learning in class.
As always, if you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate to contact me on the school admin email email@example.com or see me at the end of the school day. You can also write a note in your child's reading diary but please tell your child to remember to show me as I don't check them every day.
Our School Day
The start and end of the school day has changed slightly this term. The day will start at 8.50am and finish at 3.10pm. Please try to be punctual as this will ease congestion on the path outside school. Thank you for your help with this. We ask that all adults wear face coverings when they drop off or pick up at the gate and please try to limit the number of adults at the gate to one per family.
Our learning this term
Our story topic this half term will continue to be 'The Highland Falcon Thief' by M.G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman. Before Easter we looked at character descriptions and I was really impressed with the quality of the children's work. The Lower KS2 team are excited to continue with the book as we are all eager to find out what happens next . If you have the opportunity to rent, buy or listen to the book on audio, I would encourage you to do so as this will be beneficial to your child and give them the chance to talk about the new vocabulary with you.
Summer Term Dates for your diary
Monday 7th June - start of the half term term
This year we are going to be having two P.E. lessons a week. One will taken by Mrs. Riley on a Tuesday afternoon for one hour and the other will be taken by me on a Wednesday afternoon. We would like the children to come dressed for P.E. on these 2 days so that we won't have to worry about getting changed. Please be aware that most lessons will take place outside so we would appreciate it if the children could be wearing a black track suit over their yellow t shirts so that we are prepared for all weather.
Kit: Trainers, black track suit bottoms or shorts (weather dependent), yellow school t-shirt and black jumper.
We are trying to encourage the children to bring healthy snacks for breaktime. A piece of fruit, breadsticks or a snack with a low sugar content would be preferable and I would really appreciate your support with this
Please make sure that your child comes to school with a named water bottle that contains water only. We encourage children to drink water regularly.
Each week homework will be set on the Friday and should be completed by the following Thursday. It will consist of:
Grammar from the grammar book.
Spelling using Spelling Shed
Purple Mash touch typing
Times Tables Rock Stars
Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning. Please also write a short comment when you have listened to you child read as we now expect every child to read at least 4 times a week minimum.
We will be sending 10 spellings a week home for the children to learn. Please help your child to learn their spellings by logging onto Spelling Shed, our fantastic new spelling program.
