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 Force of Nature.
We are looking at Philip Pullman’s ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ as our inspiration for our writing. This includes a deeper understanding of the Asian culture and traditions, the importance of the land and a closer look into the history and influence of the Shang Dynasty.
In Squirrel class we are lucky to have the support of Mrs Archer, Mrs Garret and Mrs Holgate, who are all looking forward to supporting the children for the remainder of the school year.
