Welcome to Class 3! Our teachers are Mrs Welburn (Mon-Tues) and Mrs Petty (Wed-Fri). We are supported by Mrs Merrett and Mrs Hall (LSAs) and Miss Whittaker (Apprentice). Please come and see us if there are any issues or questions.
Grab your buckets and spades because this half term our topic is 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!'
In this topic we will be using maps to locate seaside towns in the UK, finding out what seaside holidays were like in the past and identifying land features of the seaside.
We will be finding all about the heroic Grace Darling and writing fact files and diaries about the brave rescue. We will look at the work of people who help us by the seaside such as the RNLI as well as how lighthouses work.
We will also be looking at Islamic festivals in RE, exploring 'Living things and their Habitats' in Science and designing, making and evaluating sandwiches and packaging
In Art we will be drawing lighthouses, creating seaside collages and painting seascapes.
PE is on Mondays and Thursdays. Please bring both indoor (white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps) and outdoor kits (jogging bottoms, a warm top and trainers). No earrings please and long hair must be tied back.
Reading is the key!
Please bring your child's book bag to school every day. We will read with your child at least once a week. Read at home as often as you can with your child and record this in their reading diaries. Please encourage your child to change their books when needed.
Homework will be handed out on Fridays to all pupils. This will consist of one piece of comprehension work and one piece of Maths work. Please encourage your child to complete the work to the best of their ability and to hand it in by the following Wednesday.
There will be ongoing spellings to learn throughout the year.
