Burghley (Yr 3)
WELCOME TO BURGHLEY
YABBA DABBA DOO!
Welcome to 2018 in 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 Fowler at different times during the week.
Over the next term Burghley children will be experiencing everything from the Stone Age to Iron Age with our theme called SURVIVAL. We will be helping out Ug (the Stone Age boy) and finding out all about how people survived during the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. We will be writing instructions for How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth, creating our own Stone Age story, writing letters to Ug and even designing and making him a new pair of soft trousers. After all our learning we will decide which time in history we think we would have preferred to survive in.
Our PE sessions this term will be on Tuesday and Wednesday 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 Islam and the importance of the Five Pillars of Islam.
Please see the Theme web 'Survival' below for further details on the areas covered over the next Term.
This term there will be many exciting learning opportunities for your children and as always we greatly welcome and appreciate your support.
