Welcome to Class 3
Our teachers are Miss Watson and Mrs Musgrave. We have already had an awesome start to the new term – showing resilience, respect and responsibility whilst managing and embracing all of the changes we can see.
In maths, we’re starting off studying place value. We’re working with numbers up to 1,000 and are having fun with concrete resources which are really helping us to understand and explain our learning. We have started recapping and covering some of the basics in English, including sentence types and description using the book ‘I don’t like books. Never. Ever. The. End’. Our afternoons are focusing on our well-being and mental health; we’re all trying really hard to understand our emotions, recognise why we’re so super and create a bank of things we can do to set our minds free.
This half term, our topics are:
History – The Stone Age to the Iron Age
Art – Sculpture
Science – Light
Music – Let your Spirit fly
RE – Diwali
PSHE – Feelings and Emotions
Computing – Word Processing
PE – Dance
We’ll keep you updated with all of the fun things we get up to over the year as we continue to be the best that we can be
