Class 3 

Teachers                              Miss Shepherd

Teaching Assistants     Mr Lockwood (Mon- Fri 10.45-12.15 and Mon and Tues afternoons)

Welcome to the start of our spectacular new school year! This is the term when we all settle into our new classrooms, become familiar with our new friends and have lots of fun! This year Class 3 is really lucky to have Mr Lockwood supporting us during part of the morning and a couple of afternoons throughout the week. It’s going to be a great year!

Our first exciting topic for this year is Rock of Ages (focusing on the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age), so we're going to enjoy finding out about how different civilisations lived and evolved. It will be interesting to discover information about prehistoric times and contrast this with modern living. We’ll develop our science, history and geography skills through the exploration of the different settlements during the different periods of history.

In literacy we’ll be exploring a range of text types and will start our year with a focus on the text Stone Age Boy. In maths we’ll focus on understanding place value (thousands, hundreds, tens, ones) and addition and subtraction with a weekly shape, space and measure lesson incorporated. Multiplication will also be a huge focus this year, especially for the Year 4’s, who will undertake a statutory timed multiplication test at the end of the year. More information about all our curricular activities can be found on the cross curricular map, which you can download from this page.

Spellings will be sent home weekly and will be available to download from the website too. For further information about homework see the downloadable document on this web page.

We look forward to working with you in partnership. As always thanks for your support; together we’ll ensure your child continues to flourish and achieve.
