Welcome to class Gamma!
Hello and welcome to class Gamma! We are a mixed ability year 3 class with 9 pupils. The classroom teacher is Miss Lindsay and we are extremely lucky to have Mr Jenkins and Ms Drummond as our classroom support.
This term our whole school topic is Optimism.
On Launch day, we will take part in lots of different activities to show how if we have optimism, we can achieve anything. We will try baking some doughnut muffins, creating goals for the year, taking part in mindfulness yoga and planting new flowers to show new life.

In English this term, we will be learning stories with Myths. We will focus on a selection of myths, comparing them to identify similarities and differences. We will understand the features of this genre and create our own myth at the end of the topic.
In Maths this term, we will be developing our understanding of fractions. We will learn to recognise that tenths and hundredths arise by dividing by 10 and 100, and recognise, find and write fractions od a discrete set of objects. We will also compare and order unit fractions.
A homework planner will be given out at the beginning of each term so that you can see what is expected during that time. Pupils can pick any activity to complete each week as homework, in any order. They must bring one piece of completed homework into school every Monday.
Homework is important to ensure your son/charge reaches their full potential and I would really appreciate your support in ensuring it is completed to the best of your son/charges ability and returned on time.
Reading books will be given out each week in class. This will include one reading book/ magazine of your son/charges choice and one that will challenge their reading skills. Your son/charge will spend time in class during the week, reading to develop their skills and help them make progress. Reading should also be completed with an adult 3 times per week and record in your son/charges reading diary.
This term, Gamma will visit the SeaLife Manchester in the Trafford Centre to discover information about sea life creatures. We will also visit the British Music Experiment to learn about the history of music in Liverpool.
