Hello and welcome to 3GS!
Mr. Sedgwick is the teacher of 3GS and the children are supported everyday by the teaching assistants, Mrs Luffman-Kemp and Mrs. Cager.
Here are the Topics that we will be covering during the course of this academic year:
Term 1 - Vicious Volcanos
Term 2 - Stone Age
Term 3 - Europe
Term 4 - Forests and Plants
Term 5 - Light
Term 6 - Victorians
Children are welcome as soon as the classroom door is opened by a member of staff (at 8:40am) and they need to be in and settled into their learning by 8:50am.
Home Time Routine
We will stand at the classroom door and let them go when they see you in the playground. If you would like your child to begin their independence and walk home or meet you at the school gate, please let us know via Dojo or the school office so that we know that they are not expecting to meet someone in the playground.
Reading, Times Tables and Home Learning
Reading is such an important skill to learn and master, and one that is most enjoyable. Please try to read with your child regularly even if your child is a fluent reader and support him/her by asking questions to deepen their understanding of the texts. Times tables will need to be practised each day - the quicker that these facts are recalled, the easier it will be to solve tricky calculations as they move up towards Year 6. Home learning is given out on a sheet in yellow books at the start of each term.
There will be spellings to learn each week and these are tested on Fridays. The words will be stuck into the child's Reading Records at the start of each week. These spellings will usually focus on spelling patterns and rules.
Children will need to bring in their PE kits (black shorts/joggers/white t-shirt) at the start of each term. This is then kept in school and taken home and the end of each term.
Thank you very much for your continued support as we help your child strive to reach their potential.
