Welcome to class 3T!
Our class teacher is Miss Taylor. If you have any questions or you would like to talk to her about anything, she is on the KS2 playground before and after school every day,
In 3T we are all positive and friends with everyone. We love Art in particular, because it is really relaxing and makes us think carefully about detail. We can transfer these skills into our Maths and English, so we are always looking out for opportunities to add detail.
Last half term we really enjoyed our Science topic ‘Animals including humans’ and our favourite lessons included making the skeleton with dog biscuits and making our own working muscles.
In Enquiry we looked at why the river Tyne has been so important in Newcastle’s history. You should see some of the sketchings we did of buildings along the Quayside.
This half term we are really enjoying getting stuck into our new Enquiry question “Were the Romans really ruthless?”. We can’t wait to go on our trip to explore Segedunum and find out all about life in a Roman fort.
To find out what we are learning about each half term, the Year 3 curriculum plans can be found here.
Each half term we have a learning reflection event to celebrate the work we have been doing. Our parents and carers are invited into school so that we can show them what we have been learning.
Parents and carers in 3T are also connected to school through ‘Seesaw’. This means that they can enjoy watching their children’s progress every day.
In Year 3, we also work on developing good learning habits. You can see them all by clicking on this link: GCPS Learning Habits
Important things to bring to school:
Water Bottles – children can bring their own water bottle into school and store it by the sink in the classroom. Please make sure that water bottles only have water inside.
Reading Folders – children need their reading book and reading diary in school every day.
PE – children need their PE kit in school every day. PE kit consists of a white t- shirt, black shorts and plimsolls/sand shoes.
Homework – Homework is sent home every Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday morning.
