Welcome to Sparrowhawk Class


Class Teacher: Miss Carter



Sparrowhawk class is a mixed keystage class, combined of Y2 and Y3. Both year groups receive age and stage appropriate work in line with the national curriculum. The Y3 children also have a lot of opportunity to work with the Y3 children from Peregrine, they come together frequently throught the week for Science (with Mrs Howe), Guided Reading and SMSC. 


Our Topic

This term we are exploring Ancient Egypt across the curriculum. We began our topic by discussing what the children wanted to learn, to structure our lines of investigation. We will be using journals, artefacts, books, archived films, reconstructions and our own research to explore the ancient world. So far this term we have: created multisensory sandscapes, used brushes to excavate artefacts, dressed like pharoahs and crawled through dark tunnels with torches to search for Egyptian treasures. Later in the term we will be designing and creating Egyptian jewellery as well as sculpting canopic jars from clay. We are very lucky to be visiting The World Museum in Liverpool to explore the Ancient Egyptian floor!



In French, Sparrowhawks will be consolidating their knowledge of days, numbers, months, classroom instructions and colours. We will also be looking at the traditions of "mardi gras", "poisson d'avril" and Easter in France. Traditional songs, number rhymes and games will also from part of our lessons.

Every week the children focus on different spelling patterns, taken from the national curriculum spelling appendix.

A spelling rule is firstly introduced in class to investigate (on a Monday) and then a handful of spellings based upon that rule are given in a spelling grid to practise within the school week.


If you would like to view the spelling patterns (ahead of the paper based grids the children receive in class) the appendix is attached below or see "English Appendix 1: Spelling" in the back of your child's spelling folder.

Thank you for your support.
