Hello and welcome back to Stockwell. I am Mrs Gibson Year 3 teacher. I am also the Year 3&4 Phase Leader. It is lovely to have the children back in school and to see their smiley faces.
This academic year we have a lot of fun things to cover. We are starting with some catch up work to cover what we missed the end of last year. Then we will move onto the Year 3 curriculum (please see document attached)
PE days and outdoor learning
There are a few changes that are worth noting.
P.E. ALL children MUST come to school in their kit (white T-Shirt and black shorts/leggings or joggers.)
For the time being our class day for PE is on a Tuesday
Due to the recent pandemic - we will be doing a lot of learning, exploring and activities outside. Can I please remind parents to send the children into school with a change of footwear (wellies etc) and any waterproof clothing. These can be left in class.
Reading and homework.
Reading books are coming back home again books can be returned on a Tuesday and a Friday please so we can safedly isolate the books that have been home, We ask the children to read at least 3 times a week. Weekly spellings will also be sent home.
This term our Topic work is learning about ‘Stone Age’, and in Science ‘Rocks and Soil.’
Spring Term our Topic will be ‘Romans’ and in Science ‘Forces and Magnets and Plants’
Summer term Topic will be ‘What makes the world angry?’ and in Science ‘Light’
The children will learn to play a range of Samba’s on the Drums, taught by the Hull Music Service.
This year we will also introduce Latin as our Modern Foreign Language
If your child has to stay home due to parents or themselves displaying symptoms children need to stay home until a negative test result. If a positive test result children must stay home and self isolate for 2 weeks. If a negative result comes through we must see evidence of this at the office so we can allow your child back in the building. I will send work home daily for pupils on seesaw - which all of you are signed upto - can this work be completed and sent back on the same day as sending please!
Please keep an eye on the class page - as I will be showcasing what we are upto and celebrating good work. Any worries or concerns please conact me on seesaw.
