Class 3

Mr Gray

Class 3 Teacher

We welcome you back to another exciting start to the summer term.

This term, our class topic is ‘Around the World with Volcanoes’ We will be learning all about their structure, where they are located and the impact that they have.

Please find below an overview of the topic with some ideas of how you can help at home.

The  launch of  this topic will be the introduction to volcanoes around the world. The children will be building volcanoes and we will be enacting an eruption.

You can help your child this term by reading with them daily. As you can appreciate, the more that a child reads the better their chances of success. There is a reward system in place that will encourage the children to read as much as possible. You should question them about the story to help them to develop a deeper understanding and make it an enjoyable experience.

Your child will receive spellings each week to learn at home. Please practice these with your child as much as possible. Work with them on their timetables as much as possible to help them prepare for the government times table assessment. In class, the children will be assessed and set individual targets to work on. Please encourage your children to play on TTRockstars as this has shown to be an effective way to help the children to learn. Each Friday, your child will have a times table and spelling test. 

Our homework will be set each Friday on Google Classroom and needs to be submitted by the following Friday. Google login reminders will be sent out in due course. We will be using a grid with different options of homework to help parents to balance their work and time effectively. Please encourage your child to log on to this each week.

P.E. will be on a Wednesday and the children will need to bring in the correct P.E.  kit into school.

Following our healthy school policy, we ask that children bring only water in their bottles and that a healthy snack is provided for break times. Reading books need to be brought in every day as well as a coat in the colder/wetter months.

Below, is an overview of what we will be covering across the curriculum.

If you have any questions then please feel free to contact the office at hello@whitemoor.org.uk.


Kind regards


Mr Gray
