Welcome to Year 3
Hello Year 3,
I am extremely excited about the year ahead and I am so looking forward to sharing the journey of this coming year with you.
You will have many opportunities to shine and feel enormously successful. I have very high expectations of you and I want you to have very high expectations of your own selves too. As your teacher I will always aim to work the hardest I can for you and I will always expect this of you as I know you will aim to be the best that you can be. Education is not just about learning facts, but more so about learning how to think. It is also learning to make good choices.
I will always support you when you feeling a bit stuck and frustrated with your work and I will encourage you to become a curious, independent learner.
I have planned an exciting year for you! Join me in exploring the fascinating history of the first humans on this planet. In our class story, Little Ug wants to have warm soft trousers and his parents do not understand him at all. We will also be finding out about volcanoes, why there are so many different rocks in the world and how fossils are made. Visiting the Natural History Museum in Oxford will provide us with lots of answers to our questions about the changes that occurred between the Stone Age and the Iron Age in Britain. Later in the year we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians and you will get the chance to mummify your friends!
As many of you know, I love art and I will make sure we take every opportunity to be creative in every subject! I also love taking my classes on as many trips to interesting places as possible.
In mathematics we will be learning our times tables and completing lots of problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will learn by making lots of mistakes but that doesn’t matter as we learn through our mistakes.
Looking forward to hearing your questions.
