Year 3 St Martin de Porres Class Page
Welcome to St Martin’s Class Page. Mrs Jones is the Class Teacher and Mrs Rollins is the Teaching Assistant.
Our curriculum information for this half-term is:
The children have been working really hard this week, especially in maths as they have been doing tricky division. In English we’ve been innovating our own stories and they have thought of some very interesting characters. We can’t wait to read their finished stories. We also started painting our inventions which was very exciting. You’ll get to see them very soon when they come home.
Next week, Miss Moriani’s Times Table Challenge begins again so look out for the packs coming home on Monday. We are also looking forward to seeing your homework projects on Friday. A letter has gone home today but you can also check our Curriculum Newsletter on the website.
We have made a great start to the Spring Term. Our PE day is Friday. We are currently changing to a new way of practicing our spellings and will soon be sending home some information about this.
Well done to all of the children for participating in Miss Moriani’s Times Table Challenge! We will be starting a new challenge in the Spring Term, and have sent home the children’s packs so they can continue to practice if they would like to. Our new maths homework will be online until then and the children will have their My Maths log-ins sent home next week. Keep going with the Times Tables Rock Stars! If you do not have a Times Tables Rock Stars log-in, please come and speak to me and I will help sort one out for you.
Following on from our wonderful Mass a few weeks ago, we have been busy preparing for Christmas during this Advent season. The children are enjoying adding a new story to our Jesse Tree each day and opening our class Advent Calendar.
Roman Trip to Alcester Heritage Centre
As part of our Roman Topic this term, the children visited the Heritage Centre where they enhanced their knowledge of Roman culture and Roman lifestyles. The children even got to dress up as Roman soldiers! Thank you to everyone at the centre for making our trip so successful.
Children in St Martin’s ran a most successful café for all children in the school, on Children in Need Day Friday 16th November. They served drinks to ‘customers’ and a range of homemade cakes. Well done, St Martin de Porres’ class; you did a great job and had lots of fun raising money for a really worthwhile cause!
We have made a brilliant start to this school year. The children have settled in superbly and we have really enjoyed getting to know our new class.
We have PE on Thursday and Friday, and our spelling test takes place on Monday. Please send bookbags into school everyday.
