Class 3

Welcome to Class 3

Our teachers for 2022/23 are Mrs Procter and Mrs Eadsforth

Mrs Lupton is our teaching assistant.

Last Thursday, we had a fantastic visit to Stonehenge. We had an amazing time and we were able to put our learning about the Stoneage , Bronze Age and Iron Age into context.

This morning we were visited by Tom, an archeologist who helped us learn amazing things about our topic, Stoneage to Iron Age. Did you know that our ancestors were weaving nettles and hemp into cloth and making clothes? Did you know that the earliest farmers settled down about 50,000 years ago? Did you know that, rather than a bow, Stoneage people used an atlatl to launch arrows? Did you know that the wise people would pretend to be animals as part of religious ceremonies? Neither did we until today!

On Monday October 10th we had a visit from Jo at Space Detectives. we learned all about the stars and constellations and the importance of keeping our skies as dark as possible so that we can enjoy these wonderful sights.

We made our own constellations and also wrote our own myths about them. We decorated door hangers too so that we would be reminded to turn out the lights and keep our skies dark (and save money and electricity!)

Home Learning 2022/23.

Every child is expected to read for 10-15 minutes each day. Please record what your child has been reading in their Reading Record Book.

Maths: all children have their Maths passport attached to their Reading Record Book. Please regularly review your child’s targets and sign the sheet to show that they have completed each section. Once they have completed all of the sections, please let us know so that he/she can be checked before going to Mrs Fernie. All children have their Mathletics login and password in their Reading Record Book.

Spelling and Phonics: To complement our learning in the classroom, each child is given a list of words relating to our weekly spelling pattern on a Monday. Your child should practise sounding the words out and writing them. Everyone can access Spelling Shed too.
