Class 3

Welcome to Class 3

Class 3 is made up of some Y2 children and all the Y3 children in School. Class 3 is taught by Mrs Harrison on Monday, Tuesday and most of Wednesday, with Mrs Cryer teaching some of Wednesday afternoon and all of Thursday and Friday. We are lucky to have Mrs Horton with us every day, except Thursday and Friday afternoons when Mrs Askew will be joining us. Our class is a transition between KS1 and KS2 and we enjoy working hard to become more independent learners.

Due to the current climate, there are a lot of changes to the routines and systems we have in Class 3, therefore please refer to the 'Welcome Back' letter sent home for more specific information. A copy is attached below too. 

Our main topic for the Autumn Term is Stone Age to Iron Age. Our main focus will be on developing History skills while learning about changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. This is a fabulous topic and will inspire our work across the curriculum including English, Geography, History, Art and DT. We will be exploring the following enquiry questions:
- What is pre-history? How do we know about it?
- What is the job of an archaeologist?
- When were the Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age?
- How long ago were these Ages?
- What happened in the different time periods of the Stone Age?
- How did Britain change from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age to the Iron Age?
- What was daily life like at Star Carr and Skara Brae?
- What is Stonehenge? Why was it built?
- How did they farm and hunt?
- How similar/different is Britain today?

 

Things you need to know:

  • Our PE day is Tuesday. Remember to come to school dressed in your PE kit (PE will be outside this term!)
  • New spellings are emailed out on a Friday and are tested on the following Friday. Please make sure that spellings are practised at home using the menu of spelling activities sent out. 
  • Brain Builder homework has been given out for the term and the children should choose 1 to complete each week.
  • Home School diaries have been sent home and should be used to record reading done at home. This diary should remain at home until we ask for it back nearer the end of term. 
  • Reading books are to be kept at home until the children are ready to do a quiz on them. Only then should they be returned to school and a new book brought home. 
  • TT rockstars can be accessed from home and is a fantastic way to learn your timestables. 
  • Rapid Recall facts have been sent home, with the objective a child is learning highlighted. 

 

Just a reminder...
Please make sure the following are in school every day:

  • Waterbottles
  • Coats when required
  • Healthy morning snack in coat pockets. 

 

We both are very much looking forward to the year ahead in Class 3 and working in partnership with you to help the children settle back in to school and make progress with their learning. If you have any questions, please use the class email class3@bentham.n-yorks.sch.uk  

Best Wishes,

Mrs Harrison and Mrs Cryer
