WELCOME BACK AFTER HALF TERM!
I hope you all had a lovely half term and enjoyed the Jubilee celebrations with your family and friends. After a very busy half term, we all deserved to have fun and rest. This half term is set to be a fun one! We have lots of great things planned for us to learn about. Please see the attached link to find out about all we have planned this half term;
I have attached some lovely pieces of work from last half term that Garnet Class have completed across the curriculum. I am extremely proud of them and I know you will be too!
SUMMER TERM IS IN FULL SWING!
I cannot quite believe the Summer term has arrived so quickly! Garnet Class are continuing to impress me day by day with their fantastic attitude to learning and their impeccable behaviour. So far this term we have grasped everything Year 3 has to offer and continued to be fantastic roles models of, 'The Tithe Farm Way!'
Our over-arching topic this term is called, 'Creating a Better World.' For the first half of the summer term, we have looked at the topic, 'Child of our time.' We have been comparing the lives of children in the Tudor times to the life that we, as children, have today. Did you know that football and tennis were popular games that Tudor children liked to play, however, the rules were VERY different to what they are today!
Dunstable is full of Tudor history and we are hoping that we will get the chance to explore Dunstable soon and go to those historical places that King Henry VIII visited. Watch this space!
In Science, we have been learning how to 'Work scientifically,' by conducting lots of experiments as well as improving our knowledge of some trickier scientific vocabulary. We have a few budding scientists of the future in Garnet Class I think.
All of the children are really enjoying 'The Iron Man,' by Ted Hughes, which is the text we are studying in our English lessons. We are nearly at the end but I am eagerly awaiting the children's alternative endings that they are currently writing, before I reveal what actually happened.
We had our class assembly yesterday where it was so lovely to be able invite the parents in to showcase their child's learnming. Thank you all who were able to attend. The children were amazing and I am extremely proud of each and everyone of them. Keep your eye on this page for updates to all of our learning!
Happy New Year!
Wow, Christmas has come and gone so quickly! I hope you all had a lovely time with your family and friends and Father Christmas delivered lots of presents to you all.
This term, our learning is going to be focussed on how, 'The World Has Changed.' In Year 3, we will be focussing our learning on the Romans, how influential they were and how they shaped aspects of the world we live in today.
Our English learning will be based around a variety of Roman Myths and we will be looking and learning all about the famous gods and goddesses of the time. Who would be your favourite Roman god or goddess and why?
As the weather is getting colder and a lot wetter, we ask that children have a spare pair of joggers, socks and shoes (if possible) in school. This is because, during our outside Tag Rugby sessions, children may become wet and muddy so they will be able to change and be comfortable if this occurs for the rest of the day in school. Any dirty, wet clothing will be sent home immediately.
We have so much exciting learning, activities and possibly trips planned for this term so please keep an eye on this class page for any new information that Mrs Langford will share.
Just a reminder that children need to be reading everyday to an adult and this is to be recorded in their reading record. Please make sure that all reading records are in school everyday.
Stay safe and I would like to say how impressed I have been with all of the children's positive attitudes towards their learning this week; this has been fantastic to see!
WELCOME TO GARNET CLASS!
Welcome to Year 3 and Lower Key Stage Two!
A very exciting year is upon us and I, for one, cannot wait to meet each and everyone of you as you join Garnet Class and begin your journey in Key Stage Two.
My name is Mrs Langford and I will be your class teacher this year. Miss Falvey will be our Learning Support Assistant alongside Miss K. Clarke who will be in Garnet Class in the mornings only. We are lucky enough to have Miss Murphy joining us this year. She will be completing her teacher training with us in Garnet Class and I know that you will all make her feel very welcome.
We return to School on Monday the 6th of September 2021.
Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday, so children are able to come into school on those days in their school PE kit.
Our spelling tests will take place on Monday and children will receive their spellings alongside their homework every Friday and it is to be returned by the following Wednesday. Homework will not be given out until week beginning 20th September. All homework will be set on Google Classroom and children will be shown how to access this during our computing lessons. More details to follow.
We encourage children to read daily in school as well as at home. Children will receive their reading records in the first week of school and once they have read with an adult we would like a parent/carer to sign the record to support this. Every children should read 5 times a week with an adult.
Please ensure that your child comes to school every day with the following items;
A water bottle
A suitable coat (weather appropriate).
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. Attached is our 'Welcome to Year 3,' booklet which will answer any more queries in more detail.
See you on the 6th!
Lower Key Stage Two Lead/Garnet Class Teacher
I have to begin by saying how incredibly proud I am of each and every member of Garnet class and how they have approached this academic year with resilience and perseverance! Keep up this fantastic attitude and work!
We were lucky enough to visit Whipsnade Zoo this half term and see some wonderful animals and partake in a fantastic workshop all about habitats and biomes. This fitted perfectly with our first over-arching topic called, 'What a Wonderful World,' all about the biomes of the world. The children had a fantastic time and learnt a lot. Have a look below at some of our photos from the day!
We have also completed some fantastic learning this half term and everyone is working really hard to be the best learner they can be!
Have a look at some examples of just a snippet of what we have achieved across all subjects!
