Hawthorn Class 2020-2021

Welcome to Hawthorn Class 2020-21

It has been fantastic to welcome your children back to school and we are looking forward to working together and getting to know all their different personalities. We are extremely impressed with how well they are settling to the new routines and their efforts to do their best as they adjust to being a Key Stage Two pupil at GBPS. We have created our Growth Mindset display with each child choosing their mode of transport that best reflects their learning style. These have ranged from a bicycle for a learner who prefers working independently to a bus which is a learner that enjoys learning with others.  Already, we have seen many of them use their Growth Mindsets and do their best with the transition activities.

Year 3 have their outdoor PE session on a Friday this year. Please remember that the children need to come into school wearing their PE kit. Guidelines for this have been emailed to parents.

Our topic for this term is Victorians and we are looking forward to learning more about the lives of children during this time in history. We are intending to have a ‘Victorian Day’ after half term - more details will be given nearer the time.

We would also like to introduce you to the Year 3 staff team that your children will be working with this year. Mrs Barnhouse (Hawthorn Class Teacher on Monday, Tuesday), Mrs Wood (Hawthorn Class Teacher Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) Miss Rendall  (Hazel Class Teacher Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday), Mrs Featherstone (Hazel Class Teacher Thursday, Friday), Mrs Browne (Class LSA), Mrs O’Neill (LSA support) and Mrs Zamin (LSA support). If you have not had chance already, make sure you take a look at our meet the staff information pack as it provides an insight into all of the different adults who are working in Year 3 this year.

Your children have shown great resilience and have settled in well. You should be proud as we are!
