Hello and welcome to Long Mynd Class
The class teacher is Miss Moore supported by Mrs Cossie and Mrs Haynes.
This term our theme is ‘Take One Picture’ linked to the annual competition held by the National Gallery, London whose chosen painting this year is called ‘Men of the Docks’ by George Bellows, an American artist. Since our theme is art based, our lasting legacy will be to raise money to purchase some art materials, which are needed for the clients of The Shrewsbury Ark.
We will be going on the Sabrina boat so that children can get a taste of going on a journey over water. Later in the term, we will hold an event so that children can experience arriving in America in the 1900’s.
Children will be working on writing both fiction and non-fiction and building their knowledge of a wide and interesting vocabulary.
We will be working on developing skills in spelling, punctuation and grammar as well as developing a joined and fluent handwriting style. Soon the class will bring home a spelling book with each week’s spelling list inside.
During the Autumn term, we will be working on all aspects of the Mathematics curriculum starting with work on place value and written and mental calculation methods. In Year 3, we will be using lots of games and resources to make maths fun.
By the end of Year 3, children should confidently recall and use x3, x4 and x8 multiplication facts added to their Year 2 knowledge of x2, x5 and x10 facts. It is also expected that children know all the key facts level 1-3 by the end of the year. There are many ways to help your child learn them including music CD’s, apps or simple repeated practice.
Since the painting depicts a ship similar to the Titanic, year 3 will be learning about life for first and third class passengers aboard the Titanic and the experiences of immigrants arriving in America in the early 1900’s. Links will be made to DT and Art whenever possible.
PE will be every Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child has a full kit on these days.
