Spring 2

 

Welcome back!

Start of another fantastic half term and this one will be the most exciting yet! Our topic this term will be all about plants and the legend of Robin Hood. Who exactly is Robin Hood? Where did he come from? Myth or legend? We will also be learning about the different types of plants, their functions, how water is transported and the life cycle of plants. We are extremely excited for our trip to Sherwood Forest where we will be taking part in lots of activities, including a midnight walk! The residential will take place on the 1st March and we will be arriving back at school at 3.30pm on the 2nd March. We can not wait!

Welcome back, I hope you have had a lovely Christmas and a great start to 2018. We are very excited for what 2018 will hold for us. This half term we will be investigating 'What did the Romans do for us?' In this topic we will be learning all about how the Romans were so powerful and understand why they were so successful. We will be looking at key figures in history such as Julius Caesar, Boudicca and Claudius. We will have the opportunity to design our own shields and create our own mosaics within our Art sessions. Furthermore, we will be finding evidence of how the Romans influenced Britain.

Hello everyone and I hope you all have had a fantastic summer. I am really looking for this year and cannot wait to achieve some fantastic things.  no

 

On this class page I will keep you up to date on the latest information and activities within Hansby.

 

Our first topic will be 'The Savage Stone Age' where we will look at life in prehistoric Britain. We will be learning how people were able to survive in The Stone Age and what their way of life was like. Furthermore, we hope to uncover the mystery surrounding Stonehenge and why it was built. On the 19th September 2017 Hansby will be able to learn more about The Stone Age at Creswell Crags. We are very excited for this trip where the children will have an opportunity to explore a cave, test rocks, build dens and be hunter gathers themselves. I wonder who will be able to catch a reindeer?

PE will be taking place on Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure children have the correct PE for these days and that children have suitable clothing to match the weather conditions as we may be outside. It is encouraged that children keep their PE kits in school for the whole of half term and then take them home in the final week.

 

We are delighted to have Mrs Berner helping us once again in Year 3.

 

Homework will be handed out on a Monday ready to be handed back again on the following Monday. This gives the children a full week to ask any questions which they may have about their homework. Spellings will also be handed out as part of this homework.

 

I am looking forward to the start of this academic year together. I am always happy to help with any questions you may have before or after school. If timing is inconvenient for you then appointments can also be set up. smiley
