Welcome to Atlas Class with Year 2 and Year 3. Our teacher is Miss Pearson and Miss Boulton is our fabulous teaching assistant.
This half term our topic is The Stone Age in which we will be learning about how humans used to live thousands of years ago. We will be looking at where they lived, how they caught their food and look at different evidence that tells us about life in the past.
Our topic fact sheets can be seen here:
In English we will be looking at more poetry and writing an adventure text, whilst in maths we are finishing off looking at addition and subtraction before moving onto multiplication.
This year we have our PE lessons on Tuesday afternoons with coach Dan, in which we are learning to play netball. We are also very fortunate this year to have Mrs Jones come in on Wednesdays to teach us how to play the ukulele!
A piece of either Maths or English homework goes out once a week on a Wednesday and is due in the following Wednesday. Likewise, new spellings for the week are handed out on Wednesday to take home and learn before their spelling test the following Wednesday.
In Atlas class, we value reading. We encourage the children to take their school reading books home and to read to an adult each night. This reading practice must be recorded in their reading records.
This half term, Year 3 pupils will be going out to Forest School every Thursday afternoon. Please ensure they have an appropriate change of clothing and footwear.
