Mrs D Wilson
Barn Owls class is Year Three and we work as a class each morning. We are taught by Mrs Wilson four days a week and Mrs Tokalau takes us on Tuesday mornings. In the Autumn Term we go swimming on a Tuesday morning.
We also have Miss Harris who works in Barn Owls class. Mrs Wilson teaches us in the mornings. We concentrate on Reading, Writing and Maths. We also do investigations into phonics and spellings.
We will be doing lots of exciting writing this year. (The school website includes our rolling programme.) If you would like to find out which text types we will be covering, please have a look at this. (It might be in a different order!)
Our spellings are from National Curriculum 2014. We have a set list of words to learn over the year. Our spelling test is on a Wednesday. We are focusing on the Y3/Y4 list of ‘tricky’ words.
Our focus for reading this year is on understanding what we are reading about. In Year Three we have enough skills to read the words – now its Mrs Wilson’s job to teach us all about how to work out what is happening in the text. She will work with us each week and during our Guided Reading session will teach us how to find out information. It really helps if we practise our reading at home. We can use Oxford Owls to help us. The class password and login are ’bredenbury’.
This year in Maths, we will do lots of work on our times tables. By the end of the year we need to know our x3, x4 and x8. We should already know our x2, x5 and x10. In class, we will be playing lots of games to help us learn about number. Later on we will learn about fraction, shapes and measures and handling data through graph work.
We get homework on a Thursday for Maths.
In the afternoons we become one class with Snowy Owls. We are then called Key Stage Two. If you would like to find out what we are learning in the afternoons, you can either have a look at our rolling programme or look at Mrs Cottam’s class message for the work we do in the afternoons.
