WELCOME TO TERM 1
Our topic is Savage Survival!
Teachers: Mrs Gault - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
Mrs Campbell - Thursday and Friday.
Teaching Assistants: Mrs John and Mrs Ward
We will be exploring the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age periods. We will look at what made these periods in history special exploring the discoveries and inventions. We will look at what cave men were really like and discover what it would have been like to live in those times. We will examine the types of homes people used to live in, what they ate and how they farmed. We will also learn why historical artefacts are important and how we can use them to help us discover information about the past.

Every Thursday - Swimming
PE - Tuesday afternoon.
PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon and our sports coaches will teach this lesson. Children must have their full PE kits in school (please refer to the school uniform section of our website).
Children should be reading at home every night. They should be reading to an adult at home a minimum of three times per week. Year 3 children are still developing their vocabulary and comprehension skills which aid them in all areas of the curriculum. Please fill in your child's reading journal. Each time they read at home; either to an adult or independently, as children receive a certificate at the end of each term if they have completed 5 pages in their home reading record. The reading must be recorded for it to count!
The school day starts at 8.50 and doors will be open from 8.45. Please help your child to arrive on time and to enter the school building independently. If you would like to speak to your child’s class teacher, please make an appointment as this ensures the class teacher is able to settle the children ready for the day.
We welcome any parents who would like to volunteer.
Thank you for your support.
Mrs Campbell and Mrs Gault
