Emerald is a Year 3 class for truly EPIC learners! Every day is spent exploring, persevering, becoming more independent and learning to communicate our ideas, working together as a team with our teacher, Mrs Farr.
We enjoy celebrating and sharing our achievements and have lots of fun learning new things together and this page is designed to keep you up to date with what we are learning.
Parents are always welcome to phone or come and have a chat with Mrs Farr if there are any concerns or questions.
We have Outdoor P.E every Friday and Indoor PE every Wednesday. Please make sure you always have the correct kit in school every week including a spare pair of socks as we do go outside unless the weather is really terrible and the field can be very wet and boggy.
Our homework is always issued on a Thursday and a letter for parents will always be included to explain the tasks. Spellings are issued every other week and we have a spelling test every two weeks on a Friday.
All children have access to the School Library and can have two books out at a time. We visit regularly in class and children can visit during lunchtime once a week too.
All children have log-ins for Times Table Rock Stars to encourage then to develop quick recall of their multiplication facts and we can use Purple Mash both at home and school – please check your child is keeping their log-in secure. Our Purple Mash site is a great way of encouraging your child to take an interest in their learning and show you exactly what they have been working on in class.
This term we are going to be going 'Potty' over plants!
We will be learning all about the features and function of plants and how important they are to our world.
Our Inspiration Day involved the children designing and making their own new species of plant - many incredible ideas came to life!
Watch this space to find out exactly what we will have been up to as we will be inviting our parents into school later in the term. We can't give too much away at this stage but let's just say Alan Sugar may be interested too!
Last Term's Rainforest Topic proved a great favourite with the children. Thank you to all of you who joined us for our Class assembly. I'm sure you will agree the children had all worked very hard on their dance and could tell us a lot about life in the tropics. They used their sewing and design skills to create Rainforest models that moved up and down and around using cams. Please take a look at our photos.
