3S Honesty Class
Welcome to Honesty Class
We hope you have had a restful summer break and have enjoyed being together as a family in these unusual times.
We would like to welcome you all back and we are excited to begin our journey together, for this new academic year.
I am so pleased to have the chance to teach the children again this year.
We will begin Term 1 learning about The Stone and Bronze Age through our theme 'We Will Rock You'. The children will become archaeologist and Historians through investigating artefacts and understanding how this era has impacted our lives today. This will also connect our Science Learning of Rocks and Soils.
To support children with transition back to school our PSHE sessions will be formed around the children's wellbeing and Relationships, supporting children with their feeling and emotions and building strong relationships.
Our RE focus this term will be to learn about Hinduism and to understand the importance of their sacred stories.
As the children has moved to Key Stage Two now they are in Year 3, they will also begin to explore the French Language, beginning with counting, learning colour and words relating to them.
Our PE lessons will take place on a Monday and Friday, children will need inside and outside kit as they will be participating in Football and Fitness.
In English, children be learning to write to inform beginning with the text-'How to wash a woolly mammoth'. Our Class Novel will be 'Stig of the dump' which will help children understand the Stone Age Era.
Maths, will provide children the opportunity to embed their knowledge of Year 2 as we will be investigating the place value of two and then three digit numbers.
Homework will be set weekly and children will also have weekly spellings, times tables to learn that will be tested on Fridays as well as to frequently learn to read and spell Year 3 common words.
Our Class Novel
Stig of the dump
By Clive King
Barney is a solitary little boy who often wanders off by himself in the countryside. Exploring an old chalk pit, he finds himself in a cave where he meets a strange boy who wears a rabbit skin and speaks in grunts. His grandparents don't believe Barney when he tells them about his new cave boy friend - but nevertheless, the two enjoy plenty of fun together.
This lovely story about the unlikely friendship between Barney and stone-age Stig has stood the test of time.
Books to support our learning this term
We are looking forward to working with our children and families again.
As part of our quest to ensure children grow into respectful, tolerable and grounded individuals we will be answering an overarching question each term. Please spend time talking to your child about this question and the possible answers and debates.
Our overarching question:
'Who decides what is acceptable?'
