Green Class

Green Class is a year 3/4 class taught by Miss A Green (class teacher), Mrs D Irving (HLTA), Mrs C Duplessis and Mrs S Naylor (part-time TAs).

There are 31 children in Green Class, made up of 15 Year 3 children and 16 Year 4 children.

We have P.E. twice a week, on Monday (outdoor games session) and Friday afternoon (indoor dance or gymnastics), and the year 4 children go swimming on a Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure PE kits and swimwear are in school on these days.

Thank you to all parents who came to our Maths open morning. We will be  holding an English open morning next half term. Look out for a letter with more information!

This is Ollie the octopus. He is the Green Class mascot, and his tentacles represent our Learning Goals! Members of Green Class need to do the Learning Goals to get a sticker! After they have collected three stickers, Mrs Burrow or Mr Broadbent will exchange them for a large sticker, and put their name in the Good Learners box ready for the celebration assembly!

 

Our learning goals are...

  • Communication
  • Cooperation
  • Resilience
  • Perseverance
  • Enquiry
  • Pride
  • Respect
  • Reflection

This year we have an extra Learning Goal.... Organisation!

 

We are well under way with practises for our Christmas performance, 'Mr Humbug sees the Light!'. We will be sending out letters soon with details of how to get tickets for the afternoon performance on Thursday 7th December 2017 and the evening performance on Tuesday 12th December.
