3 Mrs Turner
Welcome to our class page.
Our class is "Penguin Class" and Mrs Turner is the teacher and Mrs Lynch, Mrs Brabbin and Mrs Wilson are the teaching assistants.
With many Covid restrictions lifted each child now has their own locker in the corridor where they can put their coat and bag. We have new lunch trollies for the children to place their lunch boxes on, so hopefully they will not get misplaced. Bottles of juice are kept in a box in the classroom, however water bottles may stay on the children's tables.
Year 3 is the first year of Key Stage 2 and there is a focus on the children becoming more independent learners. This means collecting their own resources eg. scissors, rulers, pencils and trying to do more for themselves before asking an adult to help.
Reading is a key life skill and another focus in Year 3 is improving both fluency and comprehension. In order to meet the children's needs, for the time being, the daily reading and writing lessons will be ability set with Mr Robinson and Mrs Turner teaching children from both Year 3 classes. The children have a reading challenge where they can collect "book worms" so please encourage them to read to you at least 3 times a week.
PE is on Thursday and Friday so please send your children to school in their PE kit.
Our topics this half term are :
Science - healthy eating and where our food comes from
History - Ancient Egyptians
RE - Reconciliation
