Class 3- Year 1

Welcome to Class 3!

Class teacher: Miss Taylorson

Teaching Assistants: Miss Jackson & Miss Bradley

In Class 3, the children are working incredibly hard and are really enjoying our new topic ‘Land Ahoy!’

We have been enjoying learning how to be a pirate on our Pirate Day. We received a message in a bottle from Captain Crabby, which we enjoyed responding to. We even heard that a pirate ship had been spotted at Seaton Carew and we learned how to write a newspaper article about this breaking news. We have been working on improving our sentences using adjectives, similes and conjunctions.

In Maths, we have been working on money, including coins and notes and we enjoyed solving lots of money problems. We have just begun our new topic on time, where we are going to learn how to tell the time to hour and half past on analogue and digital clocks.

In Topic, we have been learning about maps and focussing on fieldwork. We are also learning about the life of Captain Cook.

In science this term we will be learning about materials and their properties, where we will explain and investigate the best materials for different purposes. For our STEAM project this term, we will be designing and making a pirate ship and we will be testing to see which ship floats for the longest.

In Art our focus artist is Van Gogh, our focus piece of art is ‘Starry Night’ we are going to learn similar techniques used by Van Gogh and recreate our own version with a pirate ship twist.
