Welcome to Spring Term in Maple Class in 2021!
Spring term will be packed full of learning and fun: all details can be found on the termly overview below.
We are exploring crime and punishment throughout history. In Science, we are describing, dissecting and growing plants. In Maths, we are continuing with fractions and revisiting place value and multiplication and division. (There are some Parent Packs in the Useful Documents section below relating to both these areas and for both Year 2 and 3 if you would like to have a better understanding of expectations of your child and strategies used). "On a Magical Do-Nothing Day" is our focus book this half-term and we are writing rain poems, informal letters and dialogue based on this beautiful and inspiring book. In RE, we are concluding our study of Judaism and discussing the importance of Easter.
Please check the class story on Dojo to see what your children have been up to during their school day. We love receiving your comments.
Reading records are checked daily, and changed on completion. This half-term, Year 3 children will complete book reviews on books read at home and school.
Maths homework is set weekly via Mathletics and links directly to the curriculum: this half-term - addition and subtraction, multiplication and division. TT Rockstars practice is also set to improve and maintain fluency in response!
Spellings are tested on Fridays, when new spellings are issued. Please continue to use Spelling Shed, which is definitely supporting your children in achieving consistently high scores!
Once a term a project is also set for the children to demonstrate particular writing, editing and presentation skills!
Here are a selection of photographs of some of our Spring term class activities.
