Welcome to Blackbird Class!
Welcome back to the final term of the year!
Last term, we learned about Ancient Greece. We read lots of different myths and legends, created our own monsters, researched the Olympics in Japan, wrote playscripts and did various art projects associated with the Ancient Greeks. We also learned about light and shadows in Science and fractions in Maths. In R.E., we thought about the impact of Pentecost.
This term, our topic is 'Scrumdiddlyumptious!' We will be learning about our bodies (the skeleton and muscles), different food groups, where our food comes from, healthy eating and other ways to keep our bodies (and minds) healthy. In Maths, we will be doing some revision to try to help close any lockdown gaps, before tackling 'Shape' and 'Mass and Capacity'. In R.E., we will be finding out how Sikhs worship and celebrate.
Your child has logins for Times Tables Rockstars, Prodigy and Spelling Shed which are websites that can be accessed from the links on this page and can help improve your child's times tables, Maths skills and spelling. Also listed are some other websites that can help with times tables practice, as well as some links to other sites related to our curriculum.
To minimise the number of people at the gate, there are still staggered drop-off and pick-up times.
For Year 3, these are:
Drop-off at the school gate: 8:40 - 8:50am
Pick-up at the school gate: 3:00 - 3:10pm
If your child has siblings in Years 4, 5 or 6, you may collect all the children at 3:10pm.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch by phoning or emailing the office or catching me at the gate after school.
