Welcome to Poseidon

 poseidonWelcome to Poseidon class! - Our names are Mrs Spencer and Mrs Townend 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 Davidson and Mr Palmer also 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.

Inquiry

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 a mode of transport 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.

Fantastic start to the term with lots of creativity and art around our inquiry theme of Transport; taking our crayon or pencil on a journey around the paper and; pointillism art. 

On Wednesday we travelled by coach to the Coventry Transport Museum. We explored, observed, wondered, questioned and answered lots! It was a great day out and everyone was super! 

On Thursday we planned and drafted our own thank you letters addressed to the museum to tell them how much we learnt and enjoyed. These will be published on Friday on nice letter head paper and sent off!

On Friday we shall begin discussing our own inquiry ideas and generating questions and looking at what skills/attitudes we will need on our inquiry learning journey. 


Thank you 
Poseidon
