Welcome to Class 3!
Hello, my name is Miss Dunning and I am the new class 3 teacher. We are a mixed ability lower KS2 class with 9 pupils. We are supported by Mr Growney and Mr Marsh, who will be leading our interventions, supporting and motivating us to become the best learners we can be.

After a long time away from regular schooling, we believe it is vital to ensure that all children feel supported during this transition back to full time learning. We want to regrow and instill a love for learning in all our pupils. To do this, we will be focusing entirely on their mental health and well-being. We will guide and work with children to understand their feelings and emotions, acknowledging that we have all been affected in different ways during this time.
As part of this process, we want to encourage our pupils to look at the positive aspects of life; thinking about all the things we can be thankful and grateful for. An attitude of gratitude is a positive way of looking at life. Gratitude can increase children's happiness, teach them to be more empathetic and help them to be more thankful for everything they have.
Each term we will focus on another core value that supports us in becoming well rounded, life-long learners.
Even after children learn to read by themselves, it's still important for you to read aloud together. By reading stories that are on their interest level, but beyond their reading level, you can stretch young readers' understanding and motivate them to improve their skills. We are more than happy to supply families with books to read at home.
Our goal is to motivate children to want to read so they will practice reading independently and, thus, become fluent readers.
All pupils receive interventions which are based on individualised learning plans. These support and adhere to their individual needs in both curricular and non curricular activities. Interventions ensure that all children are embraced into our school and are given opportunities to build relationships and progress in their learning.
All pupils will also receive sensory and mindfulness sessions, every morning to help settle pupils into the school day.
A homework planner (please see below) will be given out at the beginning of each term so that you can see what is expected during that time. Pupils can pick any activity to complete each week as homework, in any order. They must bring one piece of completed homework into school every Monday.
Miss Chloe will be returning to Hope School this term. Class 3 will be attending aerial ninjas sessions once a week to learn new moves and improve their core strength and balance.
The children will also be receiving an additional PE lesson each week. During this lesson the children will be give opportunities to build their hand-eye coordination, gross motor skills and team work abilities.
