Class 3

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 2024) from here.

Class Three

It has been another busy term in class 3. We have enjoyed lots of new topics such as ’Australia’ and ‘Mountains’ in our geography lessons. Please see below some of the writing we have completed in those topics.   We focused on Australia’s human and physical geography, its wildlife as well as its contribution to the commonwealth.   When learning about mountains, we learnt about how they are formed, how they grow a little every year as well as mountains across the United Kingdom.

As part of our Australia studies, we also looked at the work of artist, Albert Namatjira who was from the Northern Territories.

In reading, Year 6 have learnt about The Underground Railroad which was a route for enslaved African Americans to gain their freedom by escaping to Canada.





Year 4s have read a story called The Song of Sky and Sand which tells the story of two children and their grandmother who decipher a local riddle to help find water for their village in Mali, Africa.




The Year 5s have been reading a story called ‘Below Deck: A Titanic Story’ which tells the story of two girls who were on very different parts of the boat and how they supported each other to escape the sinking ship.
