Class 3 Newsletter – Autumn 1
Hello everyone I hope you have all had a fantastic break! I cannot wait to hear all about when you come back to school. Each half term I would like to put a newsletter together detailing what it is we will be studying in class and our plans for each subject, as well as any notable changes or updates you should be aware of. If you have any questions about any of the content in this newsletter please get in touch using the email address listed above. We have an exciting half term coming up with lots of interesting topics and activities to cover, so read on to find out more about what you can expect from your first half term in Class 3.
This half term we will be looking at a classic novel – “Matilda” by Roald Dahl. Some of you may have already read this text, while others may have never had the chance, but I look forward to exploring this world with you regardless. I thoroughly enjoyed re-reading this text through the summer holidays as the last time I was able to read it was when I was in Year 4! I’m sure you will all enjoy it as much as I have.
This term we will be looking at Place Value. Those of you who were with us during transition week may remember starting this topic, but we will be looking at in more detail before making a start with methods for dealing with the four operations, starting with addition and subtraction. I am also pleased to announce we will be starting “Fluent in 5” a method of recapping previous topics of maths we have covered in previous years.
Topic – Marvellous Me
Marvellous Me is a topic all about… well, you! In this topic we will be looking at what makes us, us. What is unique about me? What talents do I have? What can I do well? It also lets us look at the talents of those around us, and how we are unique as individuals. Through this, we will be trying new things, challenging ourselves and learning more about ourselves and the people around us. This will link into our Science by looking at how the body works, and the History of those who have come before us. This is a really exciting topic and I look forward to learning more about you, and letting you know more about me!
This year will pose lots of challenges and changes to come, but I hope they are all exciting. I am very excited to be taking over Class 3 in September, and hope you are all looking forward to it to! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. Enjoy your Summer break!
Best wishes, Mr Acaster
School Parliament 2021-2022
I am thrilled to announce that we will be inviting pupils to apply for a position on our School Parliament. One child from each year group will be appointed to work closely with Mr Butterworth and lead on school priorities and liaise closely with other children in their year group. There will also be a pot of money that the School Parliament will be able to spend. This is an important role where you can make a real difference to our school!
Each child will need to write their own manifesto and share this with their class. Each child will then take a vote on who they would like to fulfil the role. The manifesto should include:
If you feel you could thrive in this role then please prepare a manifesto by Monday 11th October, ready to share in class. All appointments should be made by Thursday 14th October, ready to share in Celebration Worship on the Friday of that week.
I wish you good luck.
If you are interested in becoming a reading ambassador for your class this year then please take a look at the advert attached below. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
