Year 3 - Hummingbird Class


Welcome to Hummingbird Class. 

Our class teacher is Mrs Pursey.

Term 5

Wow, Term 5 already! Where has the year gone?

This term we have a History focus and will be looking at the enquiry question: 

How did the arrival of the Romans change Britain?

Britain formed part of the Roman Empire for almost 400 years and during that time underwent significant changes. We will be investigating in-depth questions about some of the important changes that occurred as well as studying aspects of Roman life. We will also be using our Romans learning to assist with our writing in English this term with a non-fiction focus.  

For our reading text we will continue looking at: 

You're a Bad Man Mr Gum! by Andy Stanton.

The children have been enjoying the humour within the book and will continue to engage in activities with it.

P:E: Our P.E days remain the same - Monday and Thursday. Both P.E sessions will be outside, children will need their P.E kits in school on these days please. I recommend they leave their kits in school all week; this includes their house t-shirt, shorts or jogging bottoms and plimsolls or trainers.

Forest School: We continue to have Forest School alternate weeks on a Wednesday. Our first Forest School session of this term will be Wednesday 27th April. We will keep you updated with when we are going on ClassDojo. The children can continue to wear their Forest School clothes to school and bring their school uniform to change into afterwards. 

Forest School kit: long sleeved top, comfortable trousers, boots/old trainers and a coat for wet or cold weather.
