Hawks

 Year 3/4 - Miss A Pickett

 

Welcome to Hawks class I'm Miss Pickett and I am the class teacher. Mrs Rogers and Miss Frowen also work in Hawks class.

Our topic for the autumn term is ‘Walk Through Time’ during this topic we will focus on the Victorian Era.

We will begin this topic by learning about Victorian author Lewis Carroll and the story of Alice and Wonderland. We will enjoy a Mad Hatters tea party and will be dressing up as one of the characters from the story.

Throughout the topic we will develop our historical knowledge by learning about Victorian life, jobs and schools. We will be visiting Tyntesfield to learn about Victorian houses.  We will also be changing our classroom into a Victorian classroom for the day and children will have the opportunity to dress as a Victorian child if they wish.

In art we will be learning about Victorian artist William Morris. We will be designing and creating some tablecloths in the style of the artist.

This term our P.E days are Monday and Tuesday. It is a good idea if children keep their P.E kits in school at all times as P.E lessons may change due to weather and school commitments.

Homework will be set at the start of the term. Children can hand in their completed homework projects at the end of the term or as they finish each task.  You can support us by listening to your child read regularly and helping them learn their times tables. Children will receive rewards for completed homework and if an adult signs their link book to let us know they have read at home.

We are all looking forward to learning new and interesting things this term.
