A huge welcome to Maple class from Mr. Gachowicz and Miss. Claxton.
This term we are looking forward to learning about the Seaside and will link to studying a local area, Hunstanton. We will be learning through a creative topic-based way, writing rhyming poetry based on the seaside, narratives based on Ted Hughes' 'How the Whale Became' and persuasive writing, focused on the global issue of plastic pollution in the ocean. The children will continue to learn outdoors, looking at beach art and significant beach artists. This will be supported by a trip to Hunstanton. This term we will also be going on our residential trip to How Hill.
We always try our best and will be learning lots of new skills in Maths and English. There will be a focus on practicing our tackling tables daily so we can become fluent in our times tables and mastering the inverse.
Reading remains important to us and we will be developing our analytical and synthesis skills through whole class guided and individual reads.
We will have PE twice a week so please ensure PE kits are at school. The children will continue to have recorder sessions on alternating weeks and Mount Amelia every Wednesday. Homework is due in on a Monday. For year 3, spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following week.
We are very excited about this term!
