Welcome to Class 3 at St Mabyn School. Our class is a mixed aged class ranging from 8 year olds to 11 year olds.
This half term the children will use the film Madagascar as a theme for their learning, many children in class were interested to look more closely at animals and endangered species specifically. Although the movie will act as a hook to our narrative it will also link to aspects in science and geography.
Alongside the usual work in Literacy and Maths, Children will have an exciting week based around Science. science week this year is around exploration and discovery and we will consider ways in which children can work scientifically as well as researching some of break through moments that have helped to shape the world we live in today.
Please support your children where ever possible by hearing them read and asking them questions. Times tables will be essential to your child not just in their primary learning but in Secondary education and beyond, as such time spent learning these is never wasted time!
Home learning will be set weekly and will be a combination of maths and Literacy. I will not set home learning over holiday periods as I believe the children deserve a break however Year 6 will be given the chance to continue their learning with The NCAs looming in May.
If you need any further assistance about the way we work in the classroom please feel free to come and see me at the start or the end of the day.
