Burghley (Yr 3)
WELCOME TO BURGHLEY
"Ahoy there me hearties!!"
Welcome back Burghley Class. In Burghley this year we are lucky enough to have two teachers working with us. Mrs Jesson will be working Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and then Mrs Thomas will be working Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. There will be some time for both our teachers to meet on a Wednesday so that they can make sure all runs smoothly and Burghley is shipshape. We will also have the help of Mrs Evans and Mrs Fenn at different times during the week.
Over the next two terms Burghley children will be jumping aboard the poop deck of a ship and finding out about life on the waves. The Captain of our ship (Burghley the Brave) is a little inexperienced and during a terrible storm we end up shipwrecked. We will try to find out what it might be like to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, learning how we might survive. In term 2 we will begin pirate training so that we can finally banish our useless Captain to walk the plank and we can become fully fledged Burghley pirates in charge of our ship. We will need to know how a pirate lives, talks and even what they eat! We will go through rigorous and arduous training and hopefully graduate at the end of the term.

Our PE sessions this term will be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school. As our curriculum is very creative we ask our children make sure their PE kit is in school at all times as extra PE sessions may happen at other times during the school week.
In RE we will be looking at Light and Dark and also investigating if Christmas is a festival of light or love.
Please see the Theme web 'Shipwrecked' below for further detail on the areas covered over the Autumn Term.
This term there will be many exciting learning opportunities for your children and as always we greatly welcome and appreciate your support.
