hokusaiYear 3:  Hokusai class

 

Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period.  He was influenced by such painters as Sesshu, and other styles of Chinese painting.  Born in Edo (now Tokyo), Hokusai is best known as author of the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji which includes the internationally recognised print, The Great Wave off Kanagawa, created during the 1820s.

In Year 3 children have the opportunity to write in many different formats, have guided reading daily, visit the school library to get a book to take home as well as consolidating and progressing their learning in maths through number, shape, data handling and problem solving.

Reading books and reading diaries go home every afternoon and are brought to school every morning. We encourage the children to read every night, and write in their reading diary each time they do so. To support maths you could help them practice their mental maths and times tables.

PE will take place on Wednesday mornings. Children need a plain white t-shirt and blue jogging bottoms or shorts to change into, as well as suitable footwear (plimsolls or trainers).

Homework is given out once a week on a Friday and will be due in the following Friday. If children are finding it difficult, discuss this with the teacher.

Year 3 will perform an assembly about the things they have been learning in class on the 11th March 2016 . Parents are welcome to attend these.
