Year 3 - Giraffe Class
Welcome to Giraffe Class. Our teachers are Miss Hillary and Mrs Williams and our teaching assistants are Mrs Bartlett and Mrs Esson.
We hope you’re excited about your first term in Giraffe Class! Our first term topic is 'How did the lives of ancient Britons change during the Stone Age?' In this topic we will have the opportunity to explore and examine history from prehistoric Britain. We will carry this topic over into art, reading and English - recreating Stone Age jewellery, learning how to do cave drawings and even writing instructions on how to wash a woolly mammoth!
The books we will focus our reading lessons on are 'How to wash a woolly mammoth' by Michelle Robinson and 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura.
In Science we will be learning about Animals Including Humans and PE will be football and multiskills. We will even be beginning to learn French!
During Term 1, our P.E days will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has their kit in school on these days. They will require a pair of shorts or joggers, a P.E t-shirt and plimsolls or trainers. Our Forest School days will be on alternate Fridays, please make sure your child brings their Forest School kit in with them on these days.
Home learning is sent home every week on Fridays and should be returned by the following Thursday. You will find six activities in the homework book. Your child can select one of these to complete each week. Children are also encouraged to read at home every day.
