Polaris Class


Welcome to Polaris Class, where we have years 3 and 4.  Miss Tomlinson and Mrs Devey are the class teachers and Mrs Evans, Mrs Allen and Mrs Bedford work with us too. 

We have a great year planned with the new curriculum and are very much looking forward to learning new things.

P.E. is on a Wednesday and a Friday.  Please come to school in your kit.



Kagan Cooperative Learning

We are using the Kagan Co-operative Learning Styles which will be rolled out to the rest of the school during the course of the year. We have the government guided seating arrangements and are using as many strategies as we can within this. We use methods such as Round Robin, Rally Robin, All Record, Mix Pair Share and Timed Pair Share.  We will introduce new strategies throughout the year.


Our Class Skills

As a class, we devised a list of personal skills that we think we will need as we grow, learn and develop.  These are on display in our classroom and we regularly discuss which of the skills we will use for a variety of tasks.  These include determination, resilience, courage, confidence, conflict resolution and patience, to name a few. The children are able to explain which skills they are using and why these are important in particular tasks. 

Summer Term 2023

This term, the children in Polaris Class have been learning all about The Blue Abyss.  

They have learned about seas and oceans and have identified some of the major threats to the world's waters such as over-fishing, pollution and climate change.  They have learned about sea creatures, how their environments are changing and how the creatures are adapting to survive. 

They have looked at the water cycle and the journey of rivers, including how rivers change our landscapes by erosion, transportation and deposition. 

Year 3 / 4 football tournament


Our music curriculum is being delivered through Charanga. This term we are finding out about Bill Withers, Lean on Me.

The children will receive their own login details to be able to access Yumu (Charanga) at home.  This means that the children will be able to try to listening, appraising, performing, composing and improvising at home.  

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about this.
