Welcome to Class 3JW! I hope that you have had a relaxing and enjoyable break over the Easter holidays!
Our class theme
The theme for our class this year is 'Finding Dory'. Our class mascot is Dory, who will be keeping an eye on your excellent attitude, behaviour and fantastic work that you produce throughout the year. Each week, I will choose a 'Star of the Week' based on the qualities that Dory is looking for too. If you are Star of the Week, you will have the chance to take Dory home and have a weekend of adventures!
Summer Term 2019 - 'River Deep, Mountain High'
This term has a Geography focus, which will involve us looking at what the Water Cycle is and how important it is. We will also understand how a river is formed, the features of a river and look at freshwater biomes. Alongside this, our Science learning will focus on Plants in the first half of the Summer Term, followed by Rocks and Fossils after May Spring Bank. We will also study some beautiful picture books which will complement and support this learning. We are aiming to build our cars made from shoeboxes in the first week back as part of our STEM activity, so if you have any spare shoeboxes (with detachable lids), we would greatly appreciate them!
After May Half Term, we will be visiting the Butterfly House to enhance part of our Science learning from last term as well as this term.
Novel Study - Summer Term 2019
As you enter the classroom this term, you will notice that our immersive learning environment has transformed once again. What could it be? Who does it belong to? This novel works perfectly alongside our Science topic on plants. We will explore the themes and motifs within this particular text and use drama to create and understand the viewpoints of different characters. This should stimulate our writing minds to produce some fantastic pieces of work. Plus, there will be some poems and other reading texts which will definitely stimulate your reading minds!
Please keep an eye out for our future work on these texts.
Please find in the folder below our Homework Challenge Grid. The effort, standard and excellent quality that has been produced so far this year is outstanding! It certainly shows the children's thirst for learning and I hope that this will continue this term. Please have a look and see which activities interest you, but it is by no means compulsory. If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to seeing what you produce this term!
P.E Days: Please remember to bring in your PE kit for PE lessons on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Children with pierced ears must be able to remove their earrings, or come to school without them in. Staff are not permitted to remove them.
If you have any questions or you're unsure about anything, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
