This term we will be focussing on our schools Recovery Curriculum 

 

 

 

 

Our Recovery Curriculum aims to restore the mental health and rebuild the resilience of our pupils to allow them to become learners again by:

· Recognising the experiences had by all.

· Restoring trust and relationships with staff.

· Re-establishing friendships and social interactions.

· Regaining structure and routine.

· Rebuilding a sense of community.

· Regulating their emotions and managing behaviours.

· Re-engaging them in learning.

· Preparing them for transition. 

· Explore and tune into individual needs, anxieties and worries which may have surfaced.

 

Welcome to our wonderful Year 3 class

 

During this year, we will embrace your child’s needs and differences as we immerse them in creative learning.

We strongly believe that children need the confidence to learn and develop.

We aim to give every child the ability to flourish and gain in confidence and skills.

This will enable your child, armed with the right attitude to succeed,

to be the best they can possibly be.

Please feel free to talk to us about your child. It is very important that we work together

as a team.

Your child’s happiness and any concerns are very important to us.

 

 

It is an exciting time of the year, starting a new class with a new teacher and we can't wait to welcome you all.

We are absolutely thrilled to also welcome Miss C Townsend to Homefields, (as she is covering Mrs Wainwright's maternity leave). Mrs Townsend is very passionate about teaching and learning and we are sure she will be a very valuable addition to the Homefield's family.

 

As a whole school, we will be  focusing on our 'recovery curriculum' in September.

We will be immersing the children in our creative curriculum, with an initial  focus on a whole school book to engage all the children, rebuild and develop their skills whilst developing a strong sense of self.

 

Kind Regards,

Mrs Burke (KS2 Lead and Assistant Headteacher)

 

 Following on from this we will be starting our first Year 3 topic called:

'Night at the museum'.

We will be looking at life in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages and investigating artefacts to see what we can learn about life in the past. We will immerse the children in role-play and creativity to fully experience life as a caveman/woman!!!

We will also study light and dark in our science topic.

Our literacy and Art will also be linked to the topic, where we will be getting creative writing instructions, adventure stories and designing great cave art and 3D sculptures.

We are all very excited!

Please look at the website as we will put photos on the gallery page to share our learning experiences with you all.

 

 

Thank you.

 

Miss Townsend, Mrs Wainwright, Mrs Holland and the Year 3 team
