Hello, I'm Mrs Benson and I'm really excited to be teaching in Year 3 until Mrs Penney returns from maternity leave. I have been teaching for over 20 years but would normally take enrichment groups so i am looking forward to teaching whole class for a while.
We have some really exciting topics to look forward to for this academic year:
Autumn 1 - Who Built the Pyramids?
Autumn 2 - BOOM!
Spring 1 -Through the Ages
Spring 2 - The 4 Kingdoms
Summer 1 - The 4 Kingdoms
Summer 2 - Snecking through the Fens
For Autumn Term 1, PE (s) will be on a Monday afternoon (striking and fielding) and Wednesday afternoon Gymnastics. Autumn 2 Monday afternoon Dance (solar System) and Wednesday afternoon Gymnastics.
For the main focus of homework I would like to see the children reading, spelling and practicing their number skills. We have some school linked websites to support this, and I hope you are able to support your child in accessing these at least once a week. The links are as follows:
