Class 3 is a Lower Key Stage Two class, Year 3 and Year 4 combined.
The children are taught by Miss Hargrave and she is supported by Miss Williams.
Children are given responsibilities as they are the oldest children in the school and are expected to act as role models to our younger years at all times. They are able to articulate their own learning and take ownership of their work.
Autumn term (September 2022) - welcome back
This week, to kick-start our learning of 'Living things and their Habitats', class 3 created bug hotels. We talked about what a habitat is and collected various items from our outdoor learning environments. We discussed which we thought would make suitable homes and which wouldn't. We ended up using a variety, including: twigs, leaves, sticks, bamboo, dirt, sand and shells.
What a brilliant start to our first week class 3 - keep it up!
Autumn Term - Welcome Back.
It has been an amazing first week back in Class 3.
I have been so impressed that the children have settled back to being in school so well. They have been learning new class routines to ensure we are keeping safe and have adapted quickly to these.
Over the summer holidays, the children were set a task to write a book review and create a story box for the book too. The results have been amazing! It is clear the children (and some parents!) really enjoyed this task.
To launch our new topic called 'Mountains and Volcanoes', Class 3 made rock cakes. We talked about how the rock cake looked like a mountain, so they labelled a photo of their cake with the parts of a mountain. Can you see the summit and slopes?
