Welcome to Class 3: our bright, spacious classroom near the front entrance of the school, and home this year to our year 3/4 class. Your teacher is Mrs Dodd and we have support from our wonderful teaching assistants Mrs Crumpton and Mrs Waller. The classroom has been redecorated during the holidays and is looking its very best! Take a look at the video for a sneak preview of what it will be like!
We are excited to introduce our topic for this half term: 'Turbulent Tewkesbury'. This topic is all about a local historical event, within the context of a historic civil war. The War of the Roses took place during the 15th Century. This time in English history was complex and centred around the control of the throne of England being argued about between the house of York and the house of Lancaster.
The battle of Tewkesbury was one of the most decisive battles of the War of the Roses and one of the houses was victorious...
We will explore the events that took place in class and there will be plenty of opportunities for a range of curriculum areas like art, science and geography.
