Year 3 - Class Falcon 

Summer Term 2022

  Welcome back to the summer term. We are very much looking forward to continuing the children's learning journeys across the whole curriculum, with new and exciting knowledge activators and activities.

Please see our Summer Term 2022 Curriculum Letter here updated April 2022

Who's who in Falcon class?

Our class organisation remains the same with Miss Cole  teaching the class on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning.  Mrs Charnley will be teaching Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday. Mrs McTigue continues as our teaching assistant and Miss Ore offers 1:1 support.

What's happening in Falcon class this term? 

As always the finer details of the learning journeys the children will be studying are on our class letter, however these are a few of the things we have to look forward to:

In English we will be studying portal stories and a trip to Croome Park will enable the children to really imagine what it is like to go through a portal! 

In history we are studying World War 2, paying particular attention to the evacuees who were sent to this area. If you have any family members who remember this time, or have information about the evacuees we would be delighted to hear from you. We are also hoping to go on a visit to Winchcombe Station, where the evacuees arrived, to experience what it might have felt like to be sent away from home.

We start our swimming sessions this term - more details on the curriculum letter.

All information about visits will be sent to you in due course.

As always please pop in and see Mrs Charnley or Miss Cole if you have any concerns.
