Welcome to Class 3JW! Happy New Year! I hope that you have had a relaxing and enjoyable break over the Christmas 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!
Spring Term 2019 - 'On the Move'
This term has a Science focus, which will involve us understanding and comparing human and animal bodies, looking at the structure of the skeleton as well as health and nutrition. To begin with, we will be using a picture book by Anthony Browne to produce some excellent pieces of writing, as well as to further develop our inference reading skills through the use of drama. After half term, we will read 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes and hopefully create our own version of an Iron Man! This term will feature lots of other exciting activities, so I hope that you'll be ready to begin in January!
Novel Study - Spring 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? 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 was produced last term was 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.
