Class 3 (Year 5 and 6) Class Page 2021-22

Welcome to class 3, taught by Mr Charlton (Monday-Thursday) and Mrs Fletcher (Friday) and supported by Mrs Morris.
PE is on Wednesdays and Thursdays and so the children will require their full PE kit on these days.
 
Spelling patterns to explore words for as well as times-tables for the week will be given out after the children's weekly tests on Thursdays. The children will be expected to also read each night (10-15 mins would be great please) and log this in their reading record book. Maths and English homework will be given each week as well as a half-termly project homework task that will link with the children's Topic work for that half-term.
 
As ever, we are always here to support children and parents alike, ready to celebrate achievements and sort any concerns that may arise. Please feel free to contact us as necessary via Class Dojo.
 
Mr Charlton & Mrs Fletcher
In Year 5 and 6 we have the opportunity to join the Alnwick Partnership of Schools Football League.We are especially pleased that this has resumed following the COVID 19 pandemic.
Class 3 were great in their discussions about equality this week as part of our whole-school focus on Rainbow Laces Day. They did themselves and the school proud within their discussions of diversity, equality, tolerance and respect and how there should be no place for discrimination with comments such as, "We're all human so we should treat each other in the same way no matter your differences," and, "It's part of our British Values and way of life."
 
We also enjoyed our Santa Dash on Friday 10th too - it got us more in the festive spirit!
In Science this half term we are learning about Light. Class Three have been designing investigations to prove that light travels in straight lines. 
We have also played 'pass the light' using a torch and carefully placed mirrors to allow light to travel from one end of the classroom to another. 
Thank you to everyone who sent in cereal boxes. Class Three had a lot of fun using them to make their very own Periscopes using mirrors. We have been learning all about how light is reflected by a mirror. 
Class Three were very lucky as they got to take part in a special live stream event hosted by Seven Stories. Children's illustrator Axel Sheffler showed us some of his amazing illustrations - including his original designs for The Gruffalo! He then taught us how to make mini books. The children really enjoyed sharing their stories with each other and adding illustrations in the style of Axel.
