Mrs Lindblad's Class 2020 - 2021

Mrs Lindblad

Year 3

Welcome to our Class Page

 

Happy New Year and welcome back to school for the Spring term of 2021! I hope that you all enjoyed the Christmas holidays with your families and continue to remain safe and well. The children in year 3 worked extremely hard last half term and it been a pleasure to have them in my class so far this year. We have lots of fun and we like to laugh together while at the same time focussing on being kind. They are a lovely class and I am looking forward to the coming half term.

The Spring Curriculum Overview will be in the 'Files to Download' section by the end of the week and this will give 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 forseeable future our school day will continue to start at 9am and end at 3.20pm. Please try to be punctual as this will ease congestion on the path outside school. Thank you for your help with this. We ask that all adults wear face coverings when they drop off or pick up at the gate and please try to limit the number of adults at the gate to one per family.

 

Our learning this term

Our story topic this term will be 'The Highland Falcon Thief' by M.G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman. The Lower KS2 team are excited to get started with the book and have lots of exciting writing opportunities planned. If you have the opportunity to rent, buy or listen to the book on audio, I would encourage you to do so as this will be beneficial to your child and give them the chance to talk about the new vocabulary with you.

 

 

Spring Term Dates for your diary

 

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:

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 using Spelling Shed

'My Maths' or Purple Mash 

 

Reading:

Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  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.
