Our class teacher is Mr Akhtar, and our teaching assistant is Mrs Roberts.

During this half term, we will be looking at different aspects of writing which includes newspaper articles, story writing and reports.  We will develop several skills such as present perfect verbs, inverted commas for speech, facts and opinions and adverbial phrases.  All these skills will help us to become fantastic writers! Don’t forget to test your own child on their spellings each week, these are extremely important to ensure our writing really does improve.

In Maths, we will be learning about fractions.  We will be finding fractions of amounts, adding and subtracting fractions and converting mixed numbers and improper fractions.  We will be solving a range of problems involving fractions too.  It is really important that we know all of our times tables off by hear by the end of year 3 so we will be practising them daily.  This can be supported by parents/carers helping their children to learn their times tables at home.

Furthermore, in our curriculum lessons we will be looking at different types of rocks, fossils and soils. In addition, we will also focus on forces and the various different types of forces that surround.  Both these topics are very exciting and the opportunities for learning are expandable.

We are looking forward to having a fantastic year in Emerald this year which will be filled with lots of exciting, engaging and valuable learning so stay posted to find out what else is happening this year!
