Snowdrops (Yr3) 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Snowdrop class! Where we...
'Encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing'- Thessalonians 5:11
Our teacher is Miss Church. We also have fantastic support in class from Mrs Harding, Mrs Smith, Mrs Hart and Mrs Dillon.
We are looking forward to an exciting and busy Spring Term, where we will have lots of opportunities to 'let our light shine'.
In Snowdrop class, and throughout our school, we look after each other to help us grow and achieve our goals!
For more information, have a look at the class information booklet and termly newsletter in the 'Files to Download' section of this page. Optional homework for this term can also be downloaded here.
We follow a BOOKS approach to our learning. We want our curriculum to:
Demonstrate BRAVERY – we want our teachers to be ambitious when planning our curriculum with high expectations of all learners. We want our learners to be brave, willing to take risks and get things wrong, and show resilience alongside a strong desire to learn and grow
Be OUTWARD-FACING – our curriculum will look beyond our school to our local community and will encourage children to see themselves as part of the wider national and global community. They will learn from other countries, faiths and cultures and we will celebrate differences while recognising that all life on Earth is precious. Our children will understand they have the power to affect change through courageous advocacy and both ask and answer Big Questions.
Create memorable OPPORTUNITIES – we want our children’s time at Tarporley to be filled with happy memories that spark their curiosity, motivate them to reach their full potential, ensure learning is ‘sticky’ and instil in them a life-long love of learning.
Develop KNOWLEDGE and SKILLS– we recognise that knowledge is key. Our coherently planned and sequenced curriculum ensures all children can achieve, make sense of the world and make informed judgements and decisions. Our children will leave us with the skills they need to thrive in the next stage of their learning
Nurture SPIRITUALITY – led by our Christian Values, staff will nurture the whole child by developing their social, moral, cultural and spiritual well-being. We
recognise spirituality as ways of being with God and the ways God is with while always having high-quality BOOKS and reading at the heart of our teaching and learning!
