Welcome to Blackbird Class!
Welcome back after such a long time away! I am really looking forward to our time together in Blackbird Class this year.
Year 3 have moved classrooms! This year, we will be in the classroom next to your old Year 2 classroom, where the Year 1s used to be. Have a look at the photos to see what the new classroom looks like.
This term, our topic is 'Tribal Tales'. In History, we will be learning about changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age and creating artwork associated with this period. We will be finding out about the hunter-gatherer lifestyle and the move towards settling down in one place. In Science, our topic is 'Plants', thinking about how they grow and how people in the past used them. In R.E., we will be thinking about what it is like for Christians to follow God. P.E. will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays this term.
Your child will be given logins for Times Tables Rockstars and Prodigy, which are websites that can be accessed from the links on this page and can help improve your child's times tables and Maths skills. 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.
The school now has staggered drop-off and pick-up times. For Year 3, these are:
Drop-off at the school gate: 8:45 - 9.00am
Pick-up at the school gate: 2:45 - 3:00pm
If your child has siblings in Years 4, 5 or 6, you may collect all the children between 3:00 and 3:15pm.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch by catching me at the gate, or phoning or emailing the office.
We are looking forward to a busy term ahead and hope to have some photos of our work on our page for you soon!
