7 – Skylarks
Hello, we are class 7 and we are called the skylarks. I am Mrs Mitchell the class teacher and we are a mixed class of year 3 and year 4 children. We are looking forward to starting the term exploring the book of ‘The one and only Ivan’. We will be exploring and discussing kindness, friendship and hope.
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 learning though a topic-based approach and we will be developing skills across all areas of the curriculum.
Our topics for the year will be:
• Autumn 1 – Magnets
• Autumn 2 – The Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age
• Spring 1 – Rocks and soil and volcanoes
• Spring 2 – The Romans
• Summer 1 – The human body – muscles and nutrition. Light
• Summer 2 – Plants. The Mediterranean.
This will be my fourth year of teaching in Key Stage 2. Before this I taught in year 1 for 4 years too! Before joining Arnold View Primary School, I worked in another school for 18 years in the foundation stage and was also lecturer at a further education college for a few years too! I am very much looking forward to continuing to teach the year 3 and 4 curriculum. I am looking forward to seeing some new faces and getting to know you all in September.
When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband, my 2 teenage daughters and our 2 cats. 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 and around Nottinghamshire. I try and get to the gym regularly, if I have time. I enjoy cooking and eating out and my favourite things are Haribos and Olives!
