Class 3

Welcome to Class Three


Happy New Year - here's to a wonderful start to 2023!


We hope you have all had a restful and fun holiday filled with laughter, love and family and that you are ready to start new explorations into learning, with enthusiasm and dedication.


Our new topic is 'Down in the Jungle' where we will learn about where rainforests are located in the world; the diverse habitats they provide for both  flora and fauna and  the issues that surround their conservation.


Our class novel is 'Explorer' by  Katherine Rundell, Science lessons will   provide opportunities to learn  about  living things and their habitats and  Art lessons will  allow the children to study the work of  Henri Rousseau to create their own artworks.


A fun and busy half term ahead!!


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

  • A pencil case (You can bring your own colouring pencils if you wish but we  do have some in school so don't worry. We will also provide  the appropriate pencils, rubbers, rulers, glue and purple pens for you to keep in your case) 
  • 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).
  • 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.
