Welcome to Blackbird Class!
Welcome back! We're delighted to see you all in class again!
Last term, as part of Home Learning, we learned about volcanoes and earthquakes, finding out how how they happen and researching Pompeii and famous volcanoes. We also made volcanoes and earthquake-proof buildings. As part of the Science topic 'Rocks', we also learned about the different layers of the Earth and how sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks are formed.
This term, our topic is 'Gods and Mortals', which is about the Ancient Greeks. We will be studying Ancient Greek myths, learning how Ancient Greek ideas shaped the modern world and creating associated art and D.T. projects. As part of the accompanying Science topic, we will be learning about light and shadows. In R.E., we will be learning about why Christians call the day Jesus died 'Good Friday'.
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.
