Welcome to Hawthorn Class
Year 3 - Hawthorn
Our class teacher is Mrs Muhith. Also joining us this term is our student teacher Mrs Cameron Griffiths who, we are very much looking forward to working and learning with. We will continue to have Mrs Hewitt as our teaching assistant alongside Mrs Field and Mrs Velesco who will support us in small groups.
This half term we are very interested in learning about the Romans.
As a class we have discussed that we would like to find out more about Roman Emperors, why the Roman Empire was important and even today, how they play a fundamental part in our lives. Many of the things we do or have originated from the Romans. The Romans gave us language. The language we use today was developed from the Romans. We are also looking forward to visiting the Roman remains and mosaics that is literally, on our school doorstep - Verulamium.
Our science topic is all about Plants. For this we will be looking at identifying different parts of a plant, making predictions and exploring what plants need and the different factors that will affect plants in order for growth. Lastly, we will carry out an investigation that will be recorded as cross curricular learning with computing.
From Monday 29th April, Hawthorn are extremely excited to be starting swimming at St. Albans Boys School. We will learn important skills and a range of strokes effectively such as: front crawl, back stroke and breast stroke enabling us to swim confidently.
