Welcome to Class 3!
Here is some information that we hope will be helpful to you. Please do ask us any questions.
Mrs Braybrooke teaches Class 3 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Tudge teaches on Thursdays and Fridays. From 2.15m on a Tuesday afternoon Miss Breakwell teaches the class PSHE whilst Mrs Braybrooke has her Planning Preparation and Assessment (PPA) time. From 2.15pm on a Friday, Miss Breakwell teaches the class Music whilst Mrs Tudge has her PPA time. We are fortunate to have classroom teaching assistant support from Miss Breakwell and Mrs Procter.
Reading-Reading is a priority at Clee Hill School, and we will listen to your child read regularly. They will read individually, at least once a week and we teach Reading to the whole class every day. Every day, we have story time to read and enjoy a book together. We read a variety of books: novels, picture books and poetry books.
Reading Homework- We expect the children to read at home at least 5 times a week. Little and often is best to help the children practise their phonic skills and develop fluency. When the children read five times a week at home, they will earn dojos and a ‘Spotted for Fantastic Reading’. In addition, the children have weekly Reading comprehension homework.
Maths Homework- Homework is set on a Friday and needs to be handed back in on a Friday. The children all have homework books where they will have their Maths homework. All children need to know their times tables. By the end of year 2, all children need to be confident with their 2x, 5x and 10x tables. By the end of year 3, all children need to be confident with their 2x, 5x, 10x, 3x, 4x and 8x tables. Have a look at this website to help: www.timestables.co.uk
Forest School-Forest school is on Wednesday afternoons. Children should come to school in their forest school clothes, old long-sleeved tops and jogging bottoms or tracksuit trousers. Remember that these clothes may get wet, muddy and torn! Please make sure they bring extra layers for cold weather, waterproof layers for wet weather, and of course their wellies!
PE-PE will be on a Friday each week, but an extra session may be added in at any time, so all children need to have their PE kit in school every day. Please refer to the Parents tab on the website under uniform for the full list of PE kit.
