Mothecombe Class (Years 3 & 4)
Welcome to Mothecombe class’ home page!
This term, our topic is 'Predator!'.
"The Venus Flytrap, a devouring organism, aptly named for the goddess of love."
- Suddenly Last Summer, Tennessee Williams
It’s time to take a walk on the wild side. Find out who’s coming to visit. Is it a bug munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it? Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey. Then use what you know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate predator; the apex of the food chain. Cross your dad with a peregrine falcon or your nan with a great white shark. What incredible species can you imagine? Feeling peckish? Let’s jump aboard the food chain.
Our teacher is Mr Armley-Jones and our teaching assistant is Mrs Wilson. In KS2 our learning is never tied to a particular environment. You’ll catch us taking advantage of our beautiful surroundings in forest school, writing instructional texts about our collages in the classroom, taking part in capture the flag at the field or learning how to code and design games in computing.
Homework – Homework will be handed out with a set of spellings on a Friday and due back in on a Wednesday. Spellings are tested on a Monday and again on Friday.
Uniform - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months and also please encourage your child to bring a named water bottle to school every day.
We are always looking for help in and around the classroom (PE, Art, reading, swimming) so please get in touch if you can lend a helping hand.
