This month's Global Goal is 'Peace and Justice Month'.

 

We celebrate this goal by looking at significant people around the world in our past and present whom have been role models and have promoted equality. 

 

We were very privileged to have met a motivational speaker named 'Siya Twani' who came in and took our school assembly at the start of the month. He spoke to the children about the meaning of equality and the importance of acceptance and respect to others. He shared events from history which shows why Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King are role models.

  

Here are stories which show racial and social class equality. You can share these stories with your child/children to help their understanding of peace and equality; to start discussions on fairness; to discuss how we can help others today (Harvest Festival);

Scratch- attempt a smoking car at home!

Week 4 Homework set on 28/09/18;

Suffixes

A suffix is a letter or group of letters that goes on the end of a word and changes the word's meaning.

Sometimes they also change the original word's spelling. When adding a suffix you might have to double the last letter. For example when adding 'ed' to 'drop' you also double the p so it becomes 'dropped'.

 

Some suffixes have specific uses. Adding ‘ing’ can change a noun into a verb eg 'garden' to 'gardening'. While ‘ed’ can put a verb in the past tense eg 'jump' to 'jumped'.

 

The suffix -less means without e.g. worthless means it has no value.

The suffix -full means full of or having e.g. faithful meaning loyal and that you will stick by someone.

The suffix -ness means the state of being... e.g. illness the state of being ill.

 

 

Spellings focused on SUFFIXES -ness, –ful, -ment –less set 24/09/18; Tested on 1/10/18:

 

hopeful playful sadly happiness movement

payment friendly dullness enjoyment fearless

beautiful brightness craziness heaviness loneliness

Literacy- Roald Dahl

 

We have been reading Roald Dahl's books and answering a range of questions. Today we enjoyed zapping our teachers into an Alien using the 'Magic Finger'!

 

We used interesting adjectives to describe their appearance's.

 

Below is a video enjoying yet another amazing book by Roald Dahl. Dom and Dick read an extract from 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. Enjoy!

Answers to your questions from Meet The Teacher

 

Do you have Speakers Corner?

Yes we do and timetables will be up on our class page very soon.

 

Reading Records?

We would be more than happy for you to encourage children to write in their record books. We will also encourage this in class. Reading at home needs to now be for enjoyment hence why we allow them to select their own books (although we are there to support). At school and as part of homework, comprehension is continually taught and practised so the reading of the chosen home school text can be used to focus on continuing to develop reading stamina and enjoyment of the text. We will have task suggestions stuck into record books for the children to do once they've finished a book. This can be done with or without support and mentioned in record book.

 

Do you differentiate Mental maths test?

Mental maths tests are in the same format as SATs and therefore are not differentiated by sheet but by questions. There are a variety of styles of questions to suit all. It is important to practise the same format in preparation for SATs.

 

ICT- Scratch 

Scratch is taught as a class and log in details will be shared below for children to practise at home. Class teachers lead every session however animation due to resources is taught in class by specialists who bring in their own cameras and stands for the session to be taught at its best.

Usual number of spellings year 3 will have each week is 15, however sometimes it may just be under or over. Please ensure you practise the spellings daily. A useful way is writing each word into sentences. Remember to use the rules you learn in class.
