Together We Achieve

Class 3

Class 3


This term our topic is Dynamic Dynasties. In this project we will look at the history of ancient China, focusing primarily on the Shang Dynasty, and explores the lasting legacy of the first five Chinese dynasties, some of which can still be seen in the world today. Please see the curriculum newsletter for more information on our Topic and learning this term. 


A few things to remember:

  • Please bring a named water bottle each day.
  • Class 3 PE days this half term will be Tuesdays for Year 5 (until wk beginning 15.05.22 when Y6 will then have PE on Tuesday afternoons) and Thursdays for the whole class. We will be swimming on Thursdays during the Autumn term.
  • In Class 3 you may bring a pencil case to school if you wish. 
  • Please check all you clothes are labelled, especially PE kit and jumpers!
  • As the weather changes please send your child with clothing appropriate for the conditions. 


Homework will include:

  • Times Tables Rockstars - we can't stress enough how important this is! Knowing your times tables has an enormous impact on your Maths fluency.
  • Spellings -  which will be tested each Monday (these are linked to class learning)
  • Reading -  when an adult has listened to you read, please record this in your reading diary  - we aim for at least 3 home reads with an adult per week; 3 reads with an adult will earn you 3 hundred squares! We do our '3 reads check' on Fridays. 
  • One English and one Maths task - sent home weekly on Thursday to be returned by Tuesday of the following week please. Children will receive one hundred square for each piece of homework returned on time. Don't forget to let us know if you want to discuss any homework at the Homework Clinic. We are always here to help you with anything you want to look at together in school. On Wednesday mornings we go through homework together as a class. 


Our class motto is still: ‘Work hard, play hard’, especially for the Y6 children with their SATS coming up this half term. We couldn't be more proud of all the children in class 3. They all, always, work hard and are a credit to Kneesall School. Well done Class 3! 

 If you ever have any concerns or worries, please don't hesitate to contact us.


We are looking forward to another amazing year!
