Hawthorn Class 

Summer Term 1

Today we had the most fantastic time at our Egyptian Day. The children all looked amazing - well done for such a fantastic costume effort! We learnt an incredible amount, helped to build a tomb, took on various Ancient Egyptian jobs, created our own dances to perform, re-enacted a battle scene, made scarab beetle necklaces, made shabtis, made boat sails, weighed our hearts and practised mummification, as well as lots more! It was a very busy day! Have a look at the photos below and use them to tell your grown ups what we did.


We would like to thank the PTA for funding such a fabulous day!

Our Visit from the History Van

Welcome to the Summer Term! We hope you all had a fantastic Easter break.


Here are a few reminders and some information for the term.


Drop off: 9am    Pick up: 3:15pm 

PE: Wednesdays and Fridays 

Forest Schools: Wednesday 

Please come wearing appropriate clothing on these days. 

As forest school and PE are on the same day, please send pupils into school wearing their PE kit and have waterproofs/wellies in a bag.

Spelling test: Wednesday 

Times table test: Friday


The afterschool club for Year 3s will be Drawing club on a Monday with Mrs Turega, running until 4:10pm. As with the end of the school day, club times are staggered for different classes, so please try to arrive promptly for pick-ups from clubs. 


 Please send your child's reading book and diary into school each Friday so we can give rewards for reading at home and change reading books. New books will be sent home on a Friday. Diaries will be quarantined over the weekend and checked on Monday before being returned to children. Please note, new books will only be sent home if old ones have been returned.


Homework: Throughout the week your child will be expected to learn their spellings and times tables and should try to read every evening.  Every Friday, your child will bring home one Maths task and one Literacy task, and they will be things the children have learnt in school during the week. This is to help the children to consolidate their learning and to give them some extra practise. Additionally, a times table sheet will be sent for the times tables they will be tested on the following Friday. 


And finally, a polite reminder that toys and pencil cases stay at home for the foreseeable future to limit things going between home and school.

Tomb Raiders 

This topic is a whirlwind of adventure where we will be exploring the exciting period of Ancient Egypt. We will be taking a closer look at King Tutankhamun and the process of mummification. There will be plenty of opportunities for art and design, along with geographical, scientific and historical exploration.

Please see the document below for our curriculum overview.
