6 – Kingfishers


Mrs Mitchell

Hello, we are class 6 and we are called the Kingfishers. I am Mrs Mitchell the class teacher and we are all year 3. We are looking forward to starting the term exploring the book  ‘Kid Normal ’ This book will help us to explore feelings about fitting in, being different and not needing a super power to be super and special. We will be moving on to find out about the topics listed below. Class 6, 7 and 8 will be planning projects and activities together across the Lower Key Stage. We will be finding out the answers to these questions while developing skills across all areas of the curriculum.

Autumn 1 – What makes the Earth angry? Rocks, soils and fossils.

Autumn 2 - Why were the Romans so powerful and what did we learn from them? Romans. 

Spring 1 – Why are magnets attractive? Magnets.

Spring 2 – Who first lived in Britain? The Stone Age, the Iron Age and the Bronze Age.            

Summer 1 – How can Usain Bolt move so fast? Animals, including humans.

Summer 2 – How did that seed become a sunflower? Plants.

This will be my third year Key Stage 2 after 3 years of teaching in year 1. I am very much looking forward to continuing to teach the year 3 curriculum and getting to spend time with some familiar faces from around school as well as some new faces I have I am looking forward to getting to know. It will be a very busy but exciting year!

When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and my 2 daughters. I like having the time to sit and read a good book or two! I love being outdoors and walking and exploring some of the lovely nature reserves and parks we have in our local environment. I enjoy cooking and eating out and I love Haribos and Olives!
