Attenborough class 2018 - 2019

Miss Donaghy

Hello everyone and welcome to Attenborough Class!

We are so excited to be back in school and starting a new year. Our first term of year three has been brilliant, so we hope this continues. 

This half term, the children in year three chose and designed their own topic: The Victorians. We will be learning about-

  • Who the Victorians were and famous Victorians such as Charles Dickens
  • The Victorian monarchy and class structure
  • Life in Victorian London, including workhouses
  • Victorian schools and education
  • Victorian inventions, Crystal Palace and the Great Exhibition
  • The Titanic. We know this isn't part of the Victorian Era, but the children were eager to learn about it. 

As always. there are important class values that we have all agreed on, in line with the Chestnuts Charter. Everyone looks out for one another and treats each other with kindness and respect, and we enjoy and engage in our learning to the best of our ability.. 

On this page you can find the Spring term homework sheet, Curriculum Letter and weekly spellings.

Please note: PE and Swimming will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Library time is on a Wednesday afternoon. Chess is on a Thursay Morning. 

Reading Records

Each child in the class has been given a Reading Record. It is really important that the children are reading every single evening, for at least ten minutes. Please talk to your children about what they are reading, and try to listen to them read aloud. Reading Records need to be bought back into school every Friday to be checked by the adults in Attenborough Class. If there is a record of the child having read every day for 5 days, then 5 house points will be awarded each week. If you are unsure about the suitability of the book your child is reading, please speak to the class teacher who can help pick a book which is appopriate for age and ability.
