It's Dr Shelton here!
I had such a fantastic time getting to know you all during our transition days and I hope you did too.
I am so excited to be your teacher this year and we have the fantastic Mrs Kelvey, Miss Gittins and Mrs Walker as part of our teaching team.
Why Mars Class?
This year we've chosen to name our classes after the planets, running in order backward through the school. This means that Year 3 will be known as Mars Class, the 4th planet from the Sun and the second smallest planet in the solar system after Mercury. As we discovered during our transition days, Mars is also known as the ‘Red Planet’ because, well, it’s red!
Land of Hope and Glory
We are starting the year with our geography topic, 'Land of Hope and Glory', and details are outlined below in the curriculum overview for this half term.
We are a 'Rights Respecting School'
