Class 3JD

Welcome back!  I hope you and your families had a lovely festive break and your batteries are recharged and ready for the spring term.


We had a fantastic winter term and as a year group, I hope you all enjoyed getting to know the school and other year groups better as well as developing our independent thinking and learning.  We embraced the PARK values and many of you got wristbands for Pesereverence, Ambition, Responsibility and Kindness.  This term, let's aim to get either your first band or maybe add to your collection!


As always we have a great amount of learning to do and have exciting new topics to start on;  In maths we will continue to look at multiplication and division, starting by understanding what exactly it is before working on methods of working out both operations and becoming more confident on each.  We start off our English lessons by entering a competition kindly organised by the Rotary Club of Wellingborough and after that, we have a wonderful book to explore by Oliver Jeffers (I will keep the title a secret!).


Science moves onto a super range of areas for us to investigate titled "The Night at the Museum" and if you have seen these films you will have some clues on the variety of areas we will explore together.  History/Geography this term is called "Our Moving Earth" and I must admit it is my favourite of all.  Exploring the depths of our Earth and understanding what makes our planet unique. Spolier alert - Volcanoes, hurricanes and earthquakes all feature :-)


Anyway, I will stop now as I have revealed enough for this term!


PE wise it will continue to be on WEDNESDAYS (Gym) and FRIDAYS (Dance) so please come in your PE kit on those days.  We aim to be in the Drill Hall for Gym and school hall for Dance, but make sure you wear appropriate warm clothes and shoes please.


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 back and ready for a successful 2022.


Kindest Regards

Jamie Draper, Lynn Robinson and Dawn Griggs
