Welcome to Class 3.
The move to Key Stage 2 is an important step in a child's journey through school. In Class 3 we make this transition as smooth as possible. Children become more independent in their learning and organisation and are expected (and helped) to be aware of how they can move on in their learning.
Literacy and numeracy are kept as priorities in learning but, as throughout school, an integrated approach is taken where ever possible.
In Class 3, a topic called 'Time Travelling', which centres around a trip to Southwell Minster, is a highlight of the year. A history focused topic on the Vikings is also an enjoyable investigation. We spend some time using the recorder to give all children the chance to learn to read music. The children also have a series of swimming sessions later in the year.
As in other classes, the main focus of homework is the Learning Log. Children are given open-ended tasks which allow them to work in ways which suit their learning style.
It is suggested that children keep a PE kit in school all week so that we can be flexible about when we do PE.
We will keep you informed through notes, letters and this website.
Please talk to me about any concerns you may have or to see how to help your child.
