Saturn Class Year 3 & 4

Welcome to Saturn Class. Mrs Lizzy Clarke is our class teacher supported by Mrs Roe Byford LSA. 
In Saturn class we explore exciting topics each term such as: The Egyptians, Stone Age Man, Eco Planet, Romans, Greeks and Anglo Saxons. Using a cross curricular approach to our learning helps us to become fully immersed with our topics. We have access to our own outdoor area which becomes an extension of our classroom.
Our topic this term, Summer 2024, is Rainforests.
  • We will be exploring 'Botanical' art and the work of Margaret Mee, who payed special attention to the impact of de-forestation.
  • We will be constructing creatures that we might observe moving through the Rainforest.
  • We will be preparing and sampling a variety of tropical fruit.
  • We will investigate tribal cultures that have historically depended on the Rainforest for survival.
  • We will have a Mini-Beast workshop, to explore and identify insect life in the Rainforest. 
Please take a look at our 'Rainforest' document, below, for more information on this terms learning and of course our Long Term Plans to see what's coming up next.

What we have learnt this week! 
"Saturn class loved 'Ain't no stoppin us now' which was part of their music lesson. Barney thought the music was fantastic and was just like him; energetic and fun! Esme enjoyed the chorus the most because she enjoyed the repeating lyrics and rhythm. Elkie enjoyed the energy of the music but she found it tricky to hear all the words. Molly didn't love the energetic feel of the music, for a Friday afternoon, she was hoping for something more chill!"
