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 16 Year 3 children and 14 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 'meet the teacher' meeting. If you couldn't make it, please click here to view our slide show from the meeting.

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!

 

Some of our work over the last few weeks:

English

We have now started our new English topic on recounts! We have looked at a WAGOLL and found the features of a recount.

We have watched 'The Dreamgiver' and a part of 'The BFG'.

We will be planning and writing a recount of one of these stories within the next few weeks.

Maths

We have started our first topic of number and place value!

We have partitioned numbers in different ways, rounded to the nearest 10/100/1000, placed numbers on a number line, completed number sequences and used the greater than and less than symbols.

Topic

Temples, Tombs and Treasures

We have been learning about ancient Egypt! We have learnt all about mummification and written some instructions for this process and we have located Egypt on a map.

Science

We have been learning about rocks and soils.

Your child will be given their Mathletics  and Bug Club passwords next week.
