Hello. My name is Miss Shreeve and I am the class teacher for Moonstone class!
Moonstone is a Year 3 class and we work alongside the children in Onyx class (yr3) We are very lucky in year 3, as we also have Mrs Benson working in both our classes.
Stone Age, Bone Age!
Our first topic in year 3 is ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’. To kick start our topic, we spent a few days writing creative setting descriptions as if we had fallen into the Stone Age. We waded through the snow, stroked woolly mammoths and hunted wild animals with our spears! We also created our very own cave art. Here are some photos of the work we produced. We hope you like it!
We have now settled into our new classroom! Our classroom is bright and colourful but also supports our learning. We have a calm corner to enjoy a book, a reading reef to support our home reading and a times table ladder to showcase our times tables. We also have ‘best seats in the classroom’. These seats are won by following our golden rules and working hard all week. Win these and you get a golden cushion, a funky pencil and treated like royalty!
- Please ensure your child brings their reading book and reading record into school and takes it home every day. Please support your child by hearing them read at home on a regularly and promote reading for pleasure. If your child reads 3 times a week they get to move along our ‘reading reef’ and earn prizes along the way – more reading means more prizes!
- We will have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at the beginning of the week and that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with their name. Please note, it is also advisable for children not to wear earrings on P.E days.
- Homework will be given out each Friday and will be required to be brought back on the following Friday. Please support your child to complete their homework on time. This half term, we will be focusing on learning five spellings and times tables practice.
- If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to come into school to discuss these between 8.30-8.45am and from 3.30pm onwards.
