Y3 – KITAMURA Class
A warm welcome from me, Mr Delooze, to the arriving Year 3 class.
I am looking forward to teaching you this year.
This is an exciting year for this class as we are moving into Key Stage 2 and I am sure the children are looking forward to the responsibility this brings and the chance to show how committed to their learning they are.
In Year 3, we have the exciting topic of ‘Ages Ago’ to undertake. We will be looking at developments through the Stone, the Bronze, and the Iron Age. Throughout the year, we will also study other topics such as: Romans, Volcanoes and Earthquakes and Plastic Pollution.
Our class name this year is Kitamura Class; named after Satoshi Kitamura, a Japanese children's author. He has written some enchanting picture stories about his cat, Boots the Cat, as well as one of the key texts for our first topic this year, Stone Age Boy - where a boy goes back in time to experience life in the Stone Ages.
I studied History and Politics at the University of Hull in 2012 and have lived in London for the last 5 years. Last year I taught in a two-form entry school in Croydon, but am very much looking forward to teaching at John Burns Primary School this year.
