Creative Learning Curriculum (History, Geography, R.E, Art and Music) – During autumn half term our topic is Adventure Stories. We have been reading a book called the Tunnel by Anthony Browne and the children have amazed us all with how well they have written their own version of the story. During the second half of the autumn term Year 3 will be learning about the Iron Age. Our focus will be based around the book ‘Stone Girl, Bone Girl’ by Laurence Anholt. The children will have the opportunity to take part in an Iron Age workshop where they will be dressing up and experiencing life as it was in the olden days. Geography, History, Art, DT and Drama will all be based around our studies of the Iron Age.

  • All children need a named water bottle to keep in the classroom.
  • Donated boxes of tissues are very welcome and will be used by your child’s class.
  • Reading books will be changed by the children themselves on a regular basis, they will read in a guided reading group
  • with the class teacher once a week. They will also read with the Teaching Assistants too.

If you have any questions or concerns, please, in the first instance approach your child’s class teacher. If they are unable to help, Mrs. McLaughlin is available as Year leader, or in her absence Mrs. Jefcut is available by appointment.
