Hopper Class 2019 - 2020

Ms Malik & Greensword

Welcome Hopper Class 2018-19

Mr Shewan

(Year Three)

We have made a brilliant start to the school year with our first two whole school Learning Journey themes of 'New Beginnings' and 'Red'.  See the gallery section of the school website to view some great photographs from across the school. 


Our Year Three Learning Journey now takes us off in a scientific direction for about four weeks and we explore 'Rocking It'.  This is based around some learning about soil, rocks and geology.  Our book to help us on our journey will 'Pebble in my pocket' by Meradith Hooper.  Our WOW lesson at the start of the Learning Journey will give the children some ideas and inspiration. We have had a wonderful time learning about fossils, dinosaurs and the rock cycle.

The next short Learning Journey which will start at the beginning of November will have History and Geography related theme and is called 'Stone Age... Bone Age'.  This of course will start with a brainstorming activity with the children to see what direction our learning will take! I suspect we may look at evolution, dinosaurs, stone age civiliations

The final Learning Journey of the Autumn Term will be 'Children's Choice'.  I can't wait to see what they decide to learn about.

Guidance for Home Learning:

Reading: We ask parents to read with children every evening for 15 minutes - reading is the most important and valuable thing you can do with your child are this stage of their learning. You can read to them, share a book, get them to predict what will happen in a story or get them to decribe a story's events. You can also get your child to read to you for about 10 minutes everyday.

MyMaths: Each week children will be given Maths homework using an online system called Mymaths.  Children have their own login and should complete the online homework set by the teachers.  They can have several attempts at the homework and also watch a follow up lesson if they need additioonal support.  It's vitally important that the children know all their timestables up to 12x12 by the end of Year Three.
