Welcome to Poseidon


poseidonWelcome to Poseidon class!  Our names are Mrs Spencer and Miss Mitchell and we teach the Year 3 class at Hall Meadow.  Poseidon class is also very lucky to have other adults that teach us and support our learning.  Mrs Mears, Mr Petchey and Mr Palmer support the children across the week.

Poseidon are in the first year of Key stage 2 and across the year will continue to develop their independence and their approach to learning.


The final term this year is, as always INQUIRY! This is when the children can investigate topics that they are interested in and learn how to carry out research and develop questions based on an animal of their choice. There will be many opportunities for the children to broaden their ideas into lots of different curriculum areas. We aim to develop skills such as self direction, responsibility, organisation, questioning, explaining, adaptability ... the list goes on and on!

The inquiry topic gives the children chances to be creative and to present their work to an audience. We develop different ways to share our ideas including ICT, music and art.
