Welcome to Year 3 (Class 6)
Children in this class are aged between 7 and 8.
Teacher: Mr Pugh
Homework: This goes home every Wednesday and consists of a piece of maths and a piece of literacy related to the work we have been doing in class that week. This should be returned on the following Tuesday. In addition, children should try to read every night and continue to practise their times tables.
PE: Your child needs black shorts, house colour t-shirt or a white t-shirt and pumps. As the weather gets colder, we will continue to work outside so dark coloured leggings or track suit bottoms and a jumper are advisable. Please ensure that your child has no earrings in on PE days and that long hair is tied back. PE will be on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Spring 2 Spellings
Please help your child to learn this half term's spellings. However, this half term we have organised a spelling bee between the year 3 and 4 classes. In consideration of this, there are more spellings than usual and you can find them all in this downloadable booklet below.
Author of the half term for Summer 1: Hazel Towndon. She is famous for writing the Lenny and Jake series, but also much more. Here are some websites about her and her work.
In school we take our times tables very seriously, so we should be practising them at home. I would suggest 2's,5's and 10's as a good starting point then moving onto 3's, 4's, and 8's. We will be having regular tests in class to check on the children’s progression.
This times table bingo game is a great way to help your child learn them.
Learning hard on MAP DAY!!
Class 6 meeting the one, the only SANTA!
In maths, we have been learning lots about addition and subtraction. We have been focusing a lot on the column method and here are some of the children doing this practically.
