Welcome to Park Junior and 3JD.
I am very much looking forward to welcoming you to 3JD and I am excited for two reasons;
1- I cannot wait to meet you and have a great year together, learning and developing in our wonderful school.
2- As I type this COVID restrictions have stopped and we can enjoy the whole of the school and meeting all the other teachers and children in the other year groups - No more bubbles!!
So what are we going to do? For the first few weeks, we are looking at a series of lessons called "Being me" and these sessions are about me learning a little more about you and you learning a little bit about me and mostly importantly about Park Junior School and your journey ahead.
For this term we explore the Romans and look at how they have shaped our lives and what they bought to the UK when they arrived. We will make Roman crowns, make artifacts and even learn a Roman dance in PE!
In science we look at the amazing book "Voices in the Park" and use this beautifully illustrated book to explore light, plants and the human body. In Maths we start with place value as this is very important and
provides a strong foundation for maths in year 3.
Our PE lessons will take place on a Thursday and Friday, so please make sure you come into school already dressed in your PE kit and that its warm enough as PE can take place outdoors even in the winter months.
As always any further questions can be answered by the School office or directly to me as I will be receiving and sending home the class at the start/end of the school day and am very happy to discuss your child or any queries about the class/school.
Both myself and our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Robinson and Mrs Griggs are looking forward to welcoming you to Park Junior.
