Welcome to Class 3/4H

Mrs King is their teaching assistant (if Mrs King is not in class with us she is working in our school office)
Welcome to years 3 and 4.
In year 3 and 4 our children are encouraged to work to develop their self-confidence through developing a growth mind set approach to learning, you will soon hear your children showing resilience in their learning, when they begin to recognise that they can’t do it yet, but have the willingness to keep trying. In year 3 and 4 your children will be encouraged to participate in a whole host of activities that will nurture these aspects of themselves. They will be encouraged to be independent in their personal organisation, whilst also using their collaborative abilities as they work together on problem based solving challenges too.
Our curriculum will cover all aspects as shown on our long term curriculum overview. Each term we take one of our scientific, historical or geographical areas in an umbrella topic and wherever possible our subject learning is linked to the topic. Our history topics include the Romans and Anglo-Saxons. Our science topics include sound, electricity, living things, teeth and the digestive system.
Along with all of the curriculum that will be shared this year within the classroom setting, our children will also benefit from a dedicated PE lesson delivered by our sports coach Mr Easton along with an enriching sporting afternoon with Mr Easton, Mrs Robson and Miss Sarah which alternates with swimming at Thirsk pool during the autumn term.
We always notice a huge change in growth in confidence throughout class 4. We are looking forwards to experiencing this with your children this year too.
