Class 3 Hartland

September 2021

A warm welcome to children and parents of Hartland Class. 


This week some have been getting used to their new surroundings in Class 3 whilst others have been back for another year in familiar settings! We have had a busy but super first week back. 

Children have been getting to know 'The Invisible' story by Tom Percival and we have been discussing poverty, things to be grateful for as well as looking into what making a difference could look like. 


In maths we've been looking into number sense and discussing patterns and some of the things we've noticed with certain sets of numbers. We have a sneak peak of this in the videos below as well as some awesome observations from Riaaz (until the memory on the ipad was too full, sorry Riaaz). 


In PE this week we have started our rugby unit by practicing our handling skills with lots of passing and receiving, with a few sneaky interceptions from Mr Bedford too! Stay tuned for some of our rugby training videos. Oh...and of course...having a further test of some of our new active playground equipment as well!

Swimming begins

A huge well done to all the Year 3 and 4 swimmers this week. It was our first week and there were lots of new routines to get used to. After an exciting coach journey (we haven't been on a coach for a while), the children made there way to pool side. This week was all about grouping, this is when children swim and are then put in groups roughly based on their swimming ability and water confidence. We had a great time and will look forward to more pool time in our groups next week. Special well done to the children, they remembered the golden rule of swimming lessons...don't forget your pants!
