Hello and welcome to Falcons Class! My name is Miss Brady and I am very excited about getting to know you and working with you all you all in September.
I will use class dojo to keep you all updated with news and events as well as achievements and photos of what we have been learning in class so please do keep an eye on the app.
In Year 3 Falcons we always work with our 5Rs in mind:
Our topic in term 1 is Stone age to Iron age. We will explore our ancestry and early humans. In science we will be studying our topic of rocks, soils, minerals and fossils.
PE is cross country and dance, so outdoor and indoor kits are needed in all week (just in case we are rained off).
Reading: Every Falcon should read their school book 5 times a week for 10 to 15 minutes to an adult.
Maths: Your Falcon will have a Times Table Rockstar login with 10 minutes practise a week set.
Spelling: There will be weekly spellings alongside the Year 3 and 4 common exception words to learn.
By working collaboratively, listening to each other and showing compassion, our classroom will be a happy place with engaged falcons who become more confident and resilient throughout the year. I ensure the falcons are both supported and challenged with their learning to guarantee progress across the curriculum subjects.
I believe independence is key for children to strive so I will be encouraging them to look after their own resources, take responsibility for their classroom and their learning. Through my collaborative teaching style and focus on oracy skills, I increase the confidence of all pupils, enabling them to be involved in all class discussions.
The falcon’s learning goes beyond the lessons within our classroom, therefore I am looking forward to working with all adults that support a falcon in my class, aiming to give them every opportunity to develop and grow. Please keep in touch and ask me if you need any support with homework or reading at home.
