Gayton Class 3, Mr Mcloughlin
Welcome to Class 3
Mr McLoughlin teaches Year 4, 5 and 6 in his focused, vibrant and resourceful class. The children work very independently and have every opportunity to develop as an individual who is confident, intelligent, polite and well-rounded.
The children work in a very collaborative manner, whilst exploring a deep and varied curriculum. The children thrive and learn from each other throughout the year, with many opportunities for every child to show their creative, unique side.
What's going on?
This term is a busy but fun term with lots of things to look forward to; a Valentines disco, the Big Sing, a visit to Delapre Abbey and Easter celebrations celebrations are just a handful!
Our topic is called ‘Life Cycles: Fair or Unfair?' and will have a geography theme. We are looking forward to travelling the world in order to learn about different animals and their life cycle.
In English, we will we will be looking at a meeting tale and analysing their structure and tools used. We'll be working towards creating our own meeting tale piece and creating lots of short-burst writes along the way!
In our Science, we'll be learning about adaptation and life cycles. Along the way, we're looking forward to some practical experiments and beginning our own case studies on parts of the world.
In Religious Education, our topic this term is all about Good Friday and why is it called Good Friday. Towards the end of this term, we'll be having an Easter focus!
In Physical Education, PaceSetters are again joining us this term (where we'll be playing some hockey!) and we'll be playing some varied sports in general PE slots. Please ensure children have PE kit in school everyday.
As always, if you have any questions or queries about your child’s learning or wellbeing, please pop in and see me.
