My name is Mrs Bracken and this is my first year as a Teacher at St. Simon’s. I returned to the classroom in January this year having taken a career break to be a full time mother. Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Milner who has worked here for 6 years and whose daughter is now in year 6.
The children have settled into Key Stage 2 now and are more used to the different routines and expectations. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, or concerns.
This block we will be learning about Celebrating the Mass and the meaning of the different parts of the Mass. Also, in Geography we are going to identify and locate the rivers, mountains and coasts of the UK. In Science we will be studying rocks and fossils and making mechanical systems in Design and Technology.
We have an exciting term ahead as we are going to be joining with year 4 to perform the Easter play. This will take place at St. Peter’s Church on 28th March.
Multiplication and Division
In year 3 children need to recall and use the multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables. We have twice weekly tests and to help the children progress to the next level I will set weekly multiplication and division homework.
Given out on a Monday and tested the following Monday
