Chaffinches Class 3 2021 - 2022

Miss Porter

Welcome to Chaffinches Class 3!

Welcome back to a new academic year. I hope you have all enjoyed your Summer Holidays and are relaxed and ready to go for another school year!

The adults who help our learning in Year 3 and Year 4 - 

Miss Porter, Mrs Leach and Mrs Brimelow. 

We begin our day with a SODA activity followed by Maths and Everybody in Class Reading (E.R.I.C) before morning break. After morning break we have English. After lunch, we spend our afternoon looking at subjects such as; Science, RE, PE, History, Geography, Computing, PHSE, Modern Foreign Languages, Music and Art and Design.

Our Termly Focus Themes for the 2021 - 22 academic year are;

  • Autumn – Anglo Saxons and Vikings
  • Spring – Kings and Queens
  • Summer – Ancient Egyptians

Reading at home. All children should be bringing their reading book and record home on a regular basis. Pupils should be aiming to read for 15/20 minutes (on average) at home. In school pupils have the opportunity to change their books as required. Year 3 and Year 4 take part in guided reading activities daily. These involve answering comprehension questions, taking part in discussions about a text and reading out loud with expression. Discussing a book with your child assists with the understanding of a text and can be valuable in raising levels of achievement.

A note/signature in your child’s reading record is much appreciated to help us keep track of reading at home.

Spellings are introduced to the children on a Wednesday and then posted on the Home Learning Portal on School Spider so they can be practiced and learnt at home, these are then quizzed on the following Wednesday before new words are set.

Each week alongside spellings and reading Pupils will be set a Home Learning task on Friday on the school potral. This is to be completed and uploaded by the following Wednesday. 

Times Tables

  • By the end of Year 3, pupils should be confident in their 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x, 10x tables.
  • By the end of Year 4, pupils should be confident in all times tables up to 12 x 12.

Our PE sessions are on a Monday and Friday. Please ensure that children attend at school in the their Crowton PE Kits. 

If you have any questions or queries, please call into school to see me. I aim to respond to emails promptly and encourage parents ask for a 'quick chat' at home time. 

Thank you,

Miss Porter
