Together We Achieve

Class 3

Class 3


This term our topic is Sow, Grow and Farm. In this project we will look at the features and characteristics of land use in agricultural regions in the UK and across the world, including a detailed exploration of significant environmental areas. We will look at potato farming in Jersey, citrus farming in California and coffee growing in Peru. In English, we will be writing diaries, non-chronological reports, leaflets and balanced arguments related to our newly acquired knowledge of farming.   


A few things to remember:

  • Please bring a named water bottle each day.
  • Class 3 PE days this term will be Tuesdays for Year 5 and Thursdays for the whole class. 
  • 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 and a chance card! 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 a chance card if they return both pieces of homework 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 Thursday 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 approaching. 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!
