Class 3 is made up of children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Within our classroom we promote the three R’s; respect, responsibility and resilience. We encourage the children to be independent thinkers and develop their own thoughts, ideas and opinions in a structured, nurturing way. We work as a team in promoting the schools values and are good role models for the other children within school.
Our teacher in class 3 is Miss Jameson, she is entering her 3rd year of teaching at Tebay and she tries to make our learning as fun and hands on as possible. Next to Miss Jameson is our HLTA Miss Fisher. Miss Fisher provides us with a little extra help when we need it during lessons and interventions. She also runs breakfast and after school clubs, planning fun and exciting things for us to do when we’re not learning.
Science – While working as scientists this term we will be investigating the properties of materials. We will be learning about the uses of different materials based on their properties. Of course it wouldn’t be science without designing our own investigations and recording data along the way!
Geography – Within Geography this term the children will be studying the continent of Europe. We will be exploring some of the countries within Europe and their capital cities as well as comparing some countries within Europe. We will also dive into the continents of North and South America, learning about the difference in landscapes between and people that live there.
History – While working as Historians this term the children will be looking at some of the wicked and wonderful medieval monarchs over the Tudor period. The children will focus particularly upon Henry VIII and his wives and children, learning about the monarchs that came before and after him.
PE – The children have PE sessions on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon. On a Monday the children will have PE with our sports coach Lucy who will be working on throwing, catching and shooting skills within netball. The children will also be learning the different positions played within the sport and discovering which position they like to play the most.
On a Wednesday afternoon the children will have PE with Miss Jameson. We will be working on developing our teamwork, communication and map reading skills in orienteering.
French – Bonjour!
Within French lessons this term we will be developing our knowledge of French culture, listening to and commenting on French music and learning about the lifestyles of people who live in France. Alongside this we will be building on our known greetings, and looking at pronouns – all in French of course!
Computing – As computer experts, this term the children will be getting to grips with the basics of computing. Developing fluency when typing using a keyboard, learning how to create and save simple documents, and make editorial decisions such as inserting images, changing text size and font.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ – lots of free useful English and maths games (we love daily 10)
https://www.developingexperts.com/ – Science – The children can top up and revise their knowledge of their previous science lessons, all related to their current science topic (the children all have their individual usernames and passwords)
All children in class 3 will need their P.E kits in school on Mondays and Wednesdays. It is preferred that once in school, the children keep their P.E kits on their peg in a bag and take it home at the end of each half term for a wash. This way we are able to make the most of the weather and get out for some extra exercise whenever we can!
How can you help you child at home?
We expect all children to be reading at home on a daily basis and recording this in their reading records. We understand that parents are busy, therefore the children can read independently or read to an adult.
