Welcome to Skylark

Welcome to Skylark Class.  We are a class of Year 3 and Year 4 children.  Our teacher is Mrs Aland and our teaching assistant is Mrs Prince.   We are looking forward to a hard working year.


Term 6

Welcome back, we hope you had a lovely Spring break.  Our final topic of the year is 'Victorian Trowbridge'.

To support your child with this topic you could visit the library to do some research or visit the Civic Centre and complete the Trowbridge Town trail - there are lots of Victorian buildings in the town centre. 

See the links below for websites. 

Next week (Tuesday 12th June) we are taking the children to Trowbridge Museum for a Victorian Day. Please could children dress in a Victorian costume if possible? (The Children's Hospice Charity shop in town has a poster in the window offering help with Victorian school day costumes.)

Please find below our Topic Web, Curriculum Letter and Homework Project Letter, which will give you more information about our curriculum coverage. 

Enjoy the final term of the year!

Welcome back. We hope you had an enjoyable an relaxing break.   We are sure the children are all well rested and ready for the adventures ahead.  Please see below for details of the topic for this term.
