Welcome to Class 3's Page



It’s part two of the Summer term!

This term we will be taking a trip that links to our Science and English units, information about this will be with you shortly.

 Our History unit is The Stone Age to the Iron Age – we will continue to journey through prehistoric Britain to take a look at what life was like in each of these time periods. We will investigate how each period is different and what humans have learnt from understanding prehistory.

In English, we are looking at the poetic narrative A River by Marc Martin. This is a beautifully illustrated book that will take us on a voyage along a river to many wonderful lands.

We will complete our current Science unit on Plants. After this we will be looking at Rocks and Fossils. We will be exploring what rocks are composed of and how fossils are created.

In Art we have been creating sculptures inspired by Miro.

This term our PE will be continue to be on a Tuesday afternoon, please note the time change. Please wear your full PE kit (green polo shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers or plimsols) into school on this day. For this term we will be learning how to play Sports Day Games in preparation for the big day. This will be outside wherever possible so please ensure PE kit is appropriate for the great outdoors if you can, this includes sun lotion and hats. Year Three will also be going Swimming on a Friday morning. They will need to wear their swimming costumes under their normal school uniform and bring underwear to change into after their lesson, as well as a towel. They must have a swimming hat. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this.

I would like the children to read a minimum of three times a week at home. They can write in their own reading diary or ask a grown up to write in it. It would be great if they were listened to when reading but reading by themselves is important too. Reading is a vital skill that helps us with all areas of our learning. Practising it will help us with everything we do. Adventuring through the pages of a book is also a great way to relax after a busy day.

Key Stage Two do not get a free school snack so please make sure you bring a piece of fruit or veg if you would like a snack at break time. This particularly important on for those children who are going swimming on a Friday as we will be slightly later for lunch due to the coach.

Our class motto is ‘Don’t stop until you’re proud!’ and this term we will be continue to focus on how we can help each other feel better. We will also continue to discuss how mistakes are opportunities for learning and how we can use our resilience.  

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’ve got any questions.
