Hello my name is Miss Hall and I would like to welcome your child into Year 3 Elm Class. We have some fantastic learning opportunities and activities awaiting us this term and I am looking forward to getting to know the class and working with them. I will try to update this page as regularly as possible to keep you informed of all the exciting new things we will be learning.
We are starting this year with a savage Stone Age themed History topic. This theme will also filter in to our artwork, D&T and Literacy. Our current science topic will focus on learning about different types of rocks, and we will hopefully spend some time exploring the environment in our local area.
For Maths we will begin the term by focusing on understanding number values and operations, and how we can use different methods to efficiently solve problems.
We are very lucky to receive additional teaching support from Mrs Lee, who will be working with our class Monday-Thursday. Year 3 will also be beginning French lessons with Mrs Bailey. Our current outdoor PE sessions will be held with Mr Lees. Both Mrs Bailey and Mr Lees are teachers sharing their specialist knowledge, and are joining us from All Hallows for these lessons.
I have created areas below for useful information, important reminders, events, our timetable, letters and homework. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you require any further information.
I am sure this term will be very rewarding and successful for the whole class- an Elm tree by nature is 'resistant and supportive'. As a class I hope we will strive to display the qualities of our class tree.
With best wishes, Miss Claire Hall.
