Class 3

St Briavels Castle

Class 3 had a thoroughly enjoyable time at St Briavels Castle. The children were an absolute delight, with impeccable manners and exemplary behaviour - they really did make us all very proud. We did a host of activities including candle making, fencing, image hunting and timeline games. Without doubt, one of the highlights was the medieval banquet where we were served pottage, chicken, vegetables and honey cake - all eaten with our fingers! The children looked fantastic in their costumes, and we all enjoyed telling riddles and jokes. The whole experience was truly memorable for all the right reasons! We would like to give special thanks to Miss Haynes and Mrs. Bundy who gave up their precious family time to support and help give our children a truly wonderful experience. 

Spring Term in Class 3

Thank you for your support last term, for the good wishes and Christmas charity donations for cancer - a very worthy cause.  Mrs. Drinkwater, Mrs. Bundy and Miss Haynes had a fabulous term and thoroughly enjoyed teaching your children; they really were delightful!  

This term, we will continue to set weekly spelling homework and test on a Friday. The children will record their scores in their home liaison book as usual. Support at home with spellings and reading is vital and we will continue to monitor the children's reading and chat to the about it and their book choices. 

In class we will be reading the book Secrets of a Sun King by Emma King  and writing a diary to link in with our topic about Ancient Egypt. We will also be reading Howard and the Mummy to complement this book and discover more about Egypt but also use it as a key to discuss rewards of perseverance. 

PE this term will be on a Thursday afternoon with Mrs. Lavelle and we will be swimming on a Monday afternoon too. 

We are looking forward to this term and working with you all. Thank you for making this a pleasure.

A very warm welcome to Class 3


Mrs Drinkwater, Mrs Bundy and Miss Haynes are excited to be teaching in Class 3 this term. Our history topic is the Stone Age to the Bronze Age. We will be covering key questions and learning about what life was like in the Stone Age and how it changed over the years. 

We have high expectations and appreciate home support very much, especially help with reading and spellings. It is essential that you listen to your child read and take an interest in what they are reading. We are focusing in reading fluency this term making sure the children read accurately, with good expression and at a reasonable pace. Spellings will be set and tested on a Friday as a general rule. PE will be on a Thursday afternoon with Mrs Lavelle.

We are looking forward to working with you all and watching the children progress!
