Class 3, which is a mixed age Year 4 and 5 class, is taught by Mrs Dean and Mrs Rowe. The children of Class 3 are inquisitive learners who have a love of learning and like to be challenged in their thinking. These enthusiastic and determined learners are developing their own learning styles and qualities of determination, resilience and responsibility.
Our topic for the beginning of the Summer Term is called Who were the Benin? This is a history topic exploring an ancient civilisation, its culture, its people and its importance. After half term we will be doing a mini geography topic which is an introduction to rivers.
In Science we are exploring living things in their environment. This will include work on classification and keys and will be supported by a trip to the zoo as well as Dartmoor National Park.
We will be keeping active and healthy through swimming, cricket and athletics to name but a few. We also have some exciting new texts to explore as part of our English curriculum. Global issues are important to us at berry Pomeroy and this term we will be considering the issue of water pollution and the lack of clean water supplies for all.
The year will culminate of course in our annual summer production… More details to follow!
