Class 3 - Willow

Happy New Year, Willows!

Spring Term 2024



We hope you have all had a restful and fun  Christmas holiday and are ready for our new term,  and a new topic -  Invaders and Settlers.



This is a history-based topic, but with strong links to geography, art, design & technology, music, literacy and reading, so will be an exciting and immersive topic for all of the children.


We will be reading  'Beowulf' by Michael Morpurgo  and will be  learning about  Anglo-Saxon and Viking lore and legend through exploring a range of fantastic literature; both fiction and non-fiction. 


In Science, we will be learning about electricity, its sources and sustainability, conductors and insulators and how to create a successful circuit, building on previous learning and extending this through use of switches and led bulbs.


This learning will  help us to design and create light up signs in the second half of the term in Design & Technology.


Another fun and busy half term ahead!!


Please be prepared for  your learning journey by making sure you have the following with you  in school:

  • Water bottle (plastic only, and just water, not juice, please)
  • PE kit - this should be a full change, including socks! Please name all items.
  • If you will be removing earrings for PE, please ensure that you bring something that you will be able to keep them safe in  (e.g: small box/tub/bag) or leave them at home.
  • Please make sure that you bring your reading book and reading record   to school every day. You are expected to read with an adult outside of school at least 3 times a week.
  • Warm / waterproof coat with a hood, suitable for cold and wet weather. 
  • On   Wednesday mornings, class 3 will have  Ukulele lessons from an external provider , Miss Marriott.  The children will receive a Ukulele  to practise with at home and should return these back to school every Monday.  The lessons will build up to the children taking part in a concert with an orchestra at the end of the year. How exciting!


Class 3 have PE on Mondays and Fridays this term.


Homework and spellings will be set on Fridays.

Homework should be handed in by the following Thursday  at the latest, and spellings will be tested on a Thursday morning.  


If there is something you would like to discuss with us, you can still contact us via the class email. Please bear in mind that replies won't be instant during school hours but we will get back to you as soon as we can.
