Year 3 - Toucan Class
Welcome to Toucan Class. Our class teacher is Mrs Pursey.
Wow! Term 6 already!
Welcome back! This year has flown by so quickly and Toucan Class have continued to impress me with their developing resilience and confidence over the course of this year, remaining positive and working collaboratively. Let's keep up the good work this term.
This term we have another Geography focus, in which we are learning about climate. We will start by looking at the climate of the United Kingdom, before comparing the climate of rainforests and deserts. During this topic we will learn about rainforests and deserts through stories, which will support our writing, where we will write facts about animals, as well as persuasive writing about deforestation.
Our P.E day has changed. We now have athletics on a Tuesday afternoon and rounders on a Friday afternoon. Children can continue to wear the correct P.E kit to school on the designated P.E days. (Alternatively, they can bring them into school on Monday for the week if preferred.) It is essential we have P.E kit in school for these lessons: t-shirt, shorts and trainers.
Please ensure that your child brings in a water bottle every day this term, especially as the weather is warming up.
Forest School session: This term the class have been split into two groups and will go alternate afternoons on a Tuesday. This will work alongside P.E, so if your child is not doing Forest school one week, they will be doing P.E instead. Children will receive a note home on the first day of term with their Forest school and P.E sessions.
Forest School kit: long sleeved top, comfortable trousers, boots/old trainers and a coat for wet or cold weather.
