Life in 3T

Welcome to class 3T! We have 32 enthusiastic children accompanied by our teacher Miss Torr and our teaching assistants, Mrs Sherwin and Mrs James. As you can imagine, with 32 of us our classroom is very busy with all the learning that we are engaged in. We love to learn new and exciting skills, both academic and about everyday life skills.

In 3T, we are well mannered and motivated by our learning, which our stimulating learning environment helps us to be, especially our jungle themed reading corner (chosen by the children)! Walk into our classroom and you’ll find us eagerly working away. The possibilities in 3T are endless, and once we enter the classroom we are mathematicians, writers, scientists, explorers and much more!

Our Learning

During the Autumn Term, our topics are ‘Why are humans animals to?’ and ‘Set in Stone’. We will enjoy learning about many different things within these subjects including learning about the role of the skeleton in Science and all about life in the Stone Age in History.

During the Spring Term, our topics will be ‘Art on the Doorstep’ and ‘Around the World in 20 days’. During this term. We’ll be going to Gladstone Pottery Museum to learn more about the local artist Clarice Cliff.

Our final topics during the Summer Term will be ‘From Source to Sea and ‘What did the Romans do for us’. These topics will enable us to use a lot of our Geography and History skills.

In English, we use many different texts throughout the year to enhance and support our learning. Some we will be using this year include: The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Twits and The Tunnel. We will read a lot during our time at school as well as at home with our families.

On Fridays, we have Music with our specialist music teacher, Mr Chubb, which we really enjoy and develop our musical skills. On a Tuesday, we have PE with our PE specialist, Mr Bell – he teaches us many different sports including dodge ball, football and dance. It’s one of our favourite lessons of the week! On a Friday, we have our weekly timetables test – we love completing our timetables tests and aiming to beat our score so that we can move further along the rainbow.

As a class, we experience lots of different lessons and we get to learn in many different ways. We always work hard and our teachers award us with house points, Dojo’s, certificates and success tickets.

Our school values are really important to each of us, and we always strive to demonstrate them to show that we are true Eaton Park People.
