Class 3

Welcome to Class 3!


Your teachers in Class 3 are Miss Rumbold and Mrs Gallivan. Miss Rumbold will teach on a Monday and Mrs Gallivan will teach from Tuesday to Friday. We also work with Miss Ford and Miss Greaves who are the Year 2 teaching assistants. Keep looking at our page for updates, information and to join us in celebrating our fantastic learning!



What made the London fire great?

This term we are learning about the Great Fire of London. We will learn about our capital city and the United Kingdom. We will make our own Tudor houses to re-create the setting of the well known historical story and explore silhouettes in art. We look forward to learning more about the events that led to the fire and to begin to understand the significance and impact on life at the time.  

Reading Awards!


Well done to all of our children who are reading at home everyday. Just a few pages or sharing pages with an adult each day makes a huge impact on your reading progress and understanding of stories. 


In addition to the whole school bronze, silver and gold awards, we are giving a small treat each time a child reads 5 times at home. Keep up the good work!


Happy New Year 2019.

Welcome back to school for Term 3. 


This term our Essential Question is:- 

"Where can your imagination take you?"


We will spend time over the next eleven weeks looking at different places, both real and imaginary! Our English work will focus on the stories: Little Red Riding Hood, The Tin Forest and Jack and the Beanstalk. We will predict what happens, infer what characters are thinking and feeling, write character and setting descriptions, diaries from the characters and retell our own versions of the story. We may have a future author in our class! 


In Project work we will be focussing on Africa as a contrasting locality. The children will be studying maps and locate different continents, countries and oceans. They will be learning all about Africa through Dance, Music and Artwork. 



Plant, Animals and Habitats will be the focus in Science over the term. They children will identify many different habitats and the animals that live there. They will even build habitats of their own for animals to find and explore!



In Maths we will focus our learning on multiplication and division, statistics and fractions. We will also continue to revisit and revise place value, addition and subtraction and shape, by linking all the different mathematical operations.


Monday 11th February:

We were really lucky to get a visit from the Mayor of Lincoln. He told us all about his job as Mayor and we looked at some of his special things that he has to wear. 

Wednesday 13th March

During Multi-faith week we visited Lincoln Mosque. The children were intrigued to see the Mihrab and Minbar and to hear about the Five Pillars of Islam. Thank you to the Imam, who showed us around and taught us more about the Islamic faith. 

World Book Day!


Look at all of the fantastic costumes to celebrate our favourite books! We enjoyed a visit from local author Luke Temple, who wrote 'Albert and the Blubber Monster' and listened to our Top 3, Class 3 books. Thank you to families for all of your support on this special day.
