Welcome to Class 3
We have 35 children from Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 in Class 3, and they are taught by Miss Shackleton. You can see what they are studying this term Summer 2023 from here.

In computing, we have continued to learn about programming. We have been using ‘Turtle Academy’ to teach programming principles in a fun and easy way making programming accessible to every child. We have only just started and below, are some of our designs. In the (quite near) future, everything we will do will require us to have basic programming abilities, and therefore it is important to learn this skill and learn to like it. The children can use Turtle Academy at home by using the following website: https://turtleacademy.com.
In art, we have been focusing on painting with watercolours. We have learnt about washes, layering colours and wet-in wet watercolour painting. Here are some of paintings and flowers (hopefully you saw your child’s on your mother’s day card!) and dragonflies.
In RE we have been learning about who Moses was. We learnt that Moses is a central figure in Judaism. He was the prophet who led the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt. He also helped them form a special relationship with God. Moses is important to Christianity and Islam too because of his role in communicating God’s laws. Moses was probably born in the late 1300s bc in Egypt to Hebrew parents.
