Burghley (Yr 3)
Welcome back to Burghley Class as we embark on the first half of the Summer Term. We continue to be supported by Mrs Evans during all mornings as well as Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Mrs Crooks will also be joining us on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. The class will also be partly taught by Miss Cummings and Mrs Loader.
Our theme for Summer Term 5 is 'Europe’, we will be exploring what the climate of Europe is and what are its physical features. In science this term children will be looking at light and how shadows are formed. We are all very excited to show our learning with you in our class assembly this term and we will be practicing lots for our May Dance!
We have been able to celebrate some amazing achievements with some children earning themselves well-deserved AR certificates. Please do let me know if you have any problems in locating passwords and usernames for accelerated reader and children can complete quizzes at home as well as at school. However, I recommend they are done as soon as possible after finishing the book and children complete these independently! Alongside Accelerated Reader, I do encourage regular use of TTRockstars to help children in their learning of times tables - these are essential for success in Maths and regular practice in a fun way is one of the best ways.
I will be making Knowledge Organisers available via Dojo for your reference so please look out for these. Parents, please do encourage your child to regularly review these at home - it is important that they all learn and understand this knowledge and have further opportunity to discuss it with you at home as will help them to be able to verbalise the knowledge they are learning.
I will continue to keep parents up to date with our learning developments and give out general messages and reminders out on Class Dojo on a regular basis, so do remember to turn on your notifications and continue to check in frequently.
In order to see what we're covering in Term 5, take a look at the Medium Term Theme Plan for Parents below.
I continue to value working in partnership with you, so please do keep in touch. If you have any problems at all, please contact me via Class Dojo or by email: email@example.com
