Welcome to Sapling Class! 


This is the class page for Miss Mars, Miss Burgess and the Year 3/4 children at Whitstone. 


We are super detectives and really enjoy finding out about different topics each term, allowing us to link our ideas and learning throughout different subject areas. Each term, our classroom is transformed to reflect the area we are currently studying so that we have the opportunity to become fully immersed in the topic. 


Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all - Aristotle


Join us on a journey through Ancient Greece in our next topic Gods and Mortals! Where we'll be learning all about Zeus, Apollo and the other gods who reign from Mount Olympus! Exploring the land of Greece, where the sun scorches the wings of Icarus and Helen of Troy inspires the launch of a thousand ships. On maps we'll plot the journeys made by these infamous Greeks. Our PE lessons will be transformed into athletic tournaments and the careful practice of synchronised battle movements! Using historical source materials, we’ll research daily life in Greece to support our writing for persuasive holidays leaflets that will make you want to explore the ancient wonders of the country yourselves! We’ll read all the about the myths and legends, such as Theseus and the Minotaur and compare this to the mythical characters of our core text The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S Lewis!


Our learning is going to be taking us to some amazing places this year from the wonderful world of Narnia to our very own Stonehenge! To join us on our learning journey this year and for any further information about each of our topics that we will be covering, please click on the term links below. We can't wait to share our learning with you and we hope you'll be back again soon to see what we've been up to!
