Year 3 and 4
Welcome to Squirrel Class!
We are a mixed class of hard working Year 3 and 4 children who are keen at exploring the world around us, gaining new knowledge and skills. We learn in a variety of ways through independent, fun, collaborative activities and investigations so that we can learn and apply our skills and knowledge across the curriculum to gain a deeper understanding and become responsible, respectful, resilient risk takers.
Throughout our learning, a growth mindset is encouraged and we work hard to provide children with the tools to achieve success in their learning not only within the National Curriculum but also personally, socially and emotionally. The children are also able to utilise the Outdoor Learning area to develop their knowledge and skills in a practical, experience-led learning environment.
We begin each term with our WOW starter based around our theme for the term. This term our theme is Time Travellers.
We will be focusing on the history of Queen Elizabeth II, as she will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee as the longest reigning monarch. The children are going to be writing letters to the Queen (in hope of a response) and looking into how she became Queen and her life after 70 years on the throne. The children are going to be creating their own Jubilee celebration to commemorate this history event.
In Squirrel class we are lucky to have the support of Mrs Holgate and we are both looking forward to supporting the children this year.
