This half term, Class 3 will be learning about the Stone Age, exploring the question: ‘Who first lived in Britain?’. Continuing from our prior learning on rocks and soils, we will also be learning about how fossils are formed as well as significant individuals such as Mary Anning. In our English sessions, we will be developing our narrative writing skills, looking in particular at character and setting descriptions as well as speech and dialogue. This half term, the children will be reading the story, Stone Age Boy, by Satoshi Kitamara. In our science sessions, we will also be finding out about light and shadows.
Class 3’s weekly PE sessions will continue to be on Mondays and Tuesdays. Unfortunately, our swimming sessions have now finished for this academic year so the children will need to come to school in their normal PE kit so they can do PE at school instead.
We are very lucky in Class 3 to be having a new member of the staff team joining our class! Mrs Sheppard will be supporting in Class 3 every Thursday and Friday morning. She has already been in school to find out about you all and is looking forward to meeting you in Thursday’s live session. Mr Wathall will continue to support in Class 3 and deliver our PE curriculum across school every Monday – Wednesday.
Homework days will recommence once children return to school, with one piece of English and Maths being given out each Friday and returned via Class Dojo where possible. The children will continue to receive weekly spelling lists each Friday and be tested on these spellings on the following Friday. Please ensure your child has their reading record and book each day and that they are regularly reading at home too (at least 3 times a week). Also, ensure your child is making regular use of TTRockstars as this will help them will many areas of their learning.
Thank you for all your efforts last half term with home learning. Following the Prime Minister’s announcement last night, it looks hopeful that the end is in sight and I look forward to welcoming everybody back to school on Monday 8th March. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via Dojo if you need any assistance, I’m happy to help.
Thank you again all for your continued support in these challenging times. It is very much appreciated!
Miss K Wright
