Mrs Lindblad's Class 2020 - 2021

Mrs Lindblad

Year 3

Welcome to our Class Page

 

Welcome back to school! It has been lovely to welcome the children back into school this week and they have settled wonderfully. Although things are a little different to normal, everyone is coping really well and I think that we are going to have an amazing year together.  I have uploaded the Autumn Curriculum Overview into the 'Files to Download' section and this gives you details of the topics in the different curriculum areas that we are covering this term.

I will also provide you with a weekly learning journey below to let you know what we will be covering over the coming week so that you will be able to support your child where possible and talk to them about what they have been learning in class.

As always, if you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate to contact me on the school admin email admin@alsagerhighfields.cheshire.sch.uk or see me at the end of the school day. You can also write a note in your child's reading diary but please tell your child to remember to show me as I don't check them every day.

 

Our School Day

For the time being our school day will start at 9am and end at 3.20pm. Please try to bring and pick up your child as close to these times as possible. This will ease congestion on the path outside school. Thank you for your help with this.

 

Our learning this term

Our history topic for this term is 'The Stone Age' and we will be reading the book 'Oi Caveboy' as our class read. If you are able to help you child to gain more information about this period in time, it would be beneficial and much appreciated.

 

 

Autumn Term Dates for your diary

  • Thursday 10th September @ 6.30pm - Meet the teacher zoom meeting (It would be great if as many of you as possible could attend as I will be talking about the expectations for the year)

 

 

PE

This year we are going to be having two P.E. lessons a week. One will taken by me on a Tuesday afternoon for one hour and the other will be taken by Mr. Bundy on a Friday afternoon. We would like the children to come dressed for P.E. on these 2 days so that we won't have to worry about getting changed. Please be aware that most lessons will take place outside so we would appreciate it if the children could be wearing a black track suit over their yellow t shirts so that we are prepared for all weather.

Kit:  Trainers, black track suit bottoms or shorts (weather dependent), yellow school t-shirt and black jumper.

 

Snacks:

We are trying to encourage the children to bring healthy snacks for breaktime. A piece of fruit, breadsticks or a snack with a low sugar content would be preferable and I would really appreciate your support with this

 

Water Bottles:

Please make sure that your child comes to school with a named water bottle. We encourage children to drink water regularly.

 

Homework:

Homework will begin on Friday 18th September. Each week homework will be set on the Friday and should be completed by the following Thursday. It will consist of:

Grammar from the grammar book.

Bedrock vobulary

Spelling

'My Maths' or Purple Mash 

 

Reading:

Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  They will receive a 'Reading Diary' and new books in week 3 that you can date and record their reading in.  Please write a short comment when you have listened to you child read as we now expect every child to read at least 4 times a week minimum.

 

Spellings:

We will be sending 10 spellings a week home for the children to learn.  Please help your child to learn their spellings by looking for patterns and by keeping going over them as much as possible.
