Welcome to the Lemur Class! (Class 3JG)
Welcome Class 3JG to Kiveton Park Meadows Junior School! We are the Lemurs!
Our class theme
Our class name this year is the Lemur Class, but there is another class theme that you will notice when you come into the classroom in September The theme for our class this year is 'Finding Dory'. Our class mascot is Dory, who will be keeping an eye on your excellent attitude, behaviour and fantastic work that you produce throughout the year.
Spring Term 2021 - 'On the Move'
This term, we have a science topic focus all around the theme of 'Animals, including Humans'. As part of this learning, we will be reading a couple of picture books in the first half term by a well-known author called Anthony Browne. I won't reveal too much about their titles but we will have lots of fun learning about the characters (both humans and animals!), doing some drama work and creating some wonderful writing within different genres.
In Science, we will be studying the human skeleton, how our muscles work and what makes a good balanced diet. We will also complete a fair test investigation. At Kiveton Park Meadows Junior School, we are fascinated about Science so I look forward to hearing your knowledge about this subject.
Our art work will look at sketching bones and animals, as well as using paint and/or watercolours to create images of animals.
READING AT HOME: As a school, we are very passionate about reading and host lots of exciting challenges for children to achieve through the Reading Challenge, where children can earn a Bronze, Silver and Gold badge. In Class 3JG, children should aim to read out loud to an adult at least 3 times a week so that their fluency and accuracy can continue to be maintained. Remember to bring in your reading book on Thursdays if it needs changing and to also get your reading sticker to show that you have read 3 times.
SPELLING AND TIMES TABLE HOMEWORK: Children will have a list of spellings to learn and practice a set times table, which they will be tested on every Friday. Children will receive new spellings and a times table to learn for the next test on Friday as well.
Please find in the folder below previous examples of outstanding homework that has been produced in previous years. The effort, standard and excellent quality that has been produced has been fantastic! It certainly shows the children's thirst for learning and I hope that you will also enjoy trying some of these interesting tasks this term. Please have a look and see which activities interest you, but it is by no means compulsory. If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to seeing what you produce this term!
If you have any questions or you're unsure about anything, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
