Welcome to Waterloo Bridge Class
Class teacher – Miss Brown
Teaching assistants – Mrs Preston and Mrs Patel
We are pleased to welcome your child to Waterloo Bridge class and are grateful for your help and support.
Recommended reading books for Year 3:
Children are asked to read at home on a daily basis and their book should be brought to school each day. It is helpful if parents can comment regularly in their child’s Reading Record, particularly when their child has finished their book. Children are responsible for changing and selecting their own books in the morning.
Children will be given homework each Friday to be handed in by the following Tuesday. Children are also asked to learn spellings and times tables at home. They are responsible for recording their homework in their homework diary.
Children are asked to bring to school a water bottle. They should have a waterproof coat when it is raining or the forecast is for rain.
Well done to all children who performed in the Ministrings concert or competed at Croydon Arena this week. We are really proud of you all!!
Here’s what we will be learning next week:
English- We will be continuing our class text, Lob by Linda Newbery. We will be practicing the use of expanded noun phrases, finishing our narrative writing and then editing and up-leveling, we will read a final section and practice reading and performing with a partner.
Reading- We will be looking at an extract from The Atlas of the Ancient World, learning new vocabulary and applying it in sentences and reading and practicing a section of the text with a partner before focusing on the skill of finding and copying words or information from a text..
We will be beginning to send home reading books on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for those children who have not already chosen them. Reading diaries should be brought to school each day.
Maths- We will be continuing to learn about money, adding subtracting and giving change.
If your child would like to practise their learning at home, there are lots of free games which they can use, including Daily 10 from Topmarks or Hit the Button
PE- We will be continuing to work on athletics skills.
Geography- We will be learning about how the Lake District was formed.
Science- We will be continuing our topic about rocks and soils, looking at how fossils were formed.
RHE- We are going to begin to consider the topic Changing Me and what it means to change from a baby to an adult.
Homework- We will post homework on Google Classroom each week. We have added tasks to Mathletics. Additionally, the children will have access to Language Angels to practise their new vocabulary in Spanish. We hope to give your child access to TTRockstars also this week, a fun way to practise times tables.
PE will take place on Monday and Friday for Blackfriars class and Tuesday and Friday for Waterloo class. Children should come to school in their school PE kits on those days.
Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school each day.
