Y3 – ATINUKE Class
A warm welcome from me, Miss Snelgrove, to the arriving Year 3 class.
I am looking forward to teaching you this year.
This is an exciting year for this class as we are moving into Key Stage 2 and I am sure the children are looking forward to the responsibility this brings and the chance to show how committed to their learning they are.
In Year 3, we have the exciting topic of ‘Ages Ago’ to undertake. We will be looking at developments through the Stone, the Bronze, and the Iron Age. Throughout the year, we will also study other topics such as: Romans and Plastic Pollution. In science, we will study topics including 'Rocks', 'Light', 'Plants' and 'Forces and Magnets'.
Our class name this year is Atinuke Class; named after Atinuke, a Nigerian-born author and story-teller. She draws on her Welsh and Nigerian roots to create enchanting stories to inspire children. She has written two series of books; the "Anna Hibiscus" series and the "No 1 Car Spotters" Series. Both of these focus on life in Africa for imaginative children.
Homework will be given out every Friday to be checked the following Wednesday. Children will also be sent home with weekly spellings to be tested every week. Please ensure that these are being practised at home. In Year 3 it is expected that all children read for at least 15 minutes every evening to an adult. This reading time must be recorded in their reading records to be checked weekly at school.
School Uniform and PE Kit
Please ensure that all school uniform, including PE kit, is clearly labelled so that missing items get returned. The class will have PE on a Monday afternoon in the autumn term.
I studied Early Childhood Studies at university in Cardiff and have taught in Reception, Year 2 and Year 3 since! I am from Devon but have lived in London for nearly 2 years. This will be my first year teaching at John Burns school which is very exciting and I can't wait to see how the children develop on their learning journey this year.
