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!

This terms learning:
Welcome back to our first term of 2019! As always we are learning a large variety of interesting topics all across the curriculum...
Topic: We're all about making noise this term! Throughout the upcoming weeks we're going to be learning all about music from around the world and its history. From Africa to America, from bagpipes to bongos.
Science: To stick with our noisy theme our science topic this term is all about sound. Together we'll be looking at how sound is created and travels as well as researching and testing insulators of sound.
Art and Design: Fun? Yes. Challenging? Yes. Loud? Of Course! To keep with our theme of sound art and DT will all be around creating our very own musical instruments made from recycled materials. Together we'll research, design, create and eventually perform our own composition for you all to see.
We have 2 sessions of PE a week, our first session is Tuesday, where it is indoor PE and looking at dance. In addition to this on Thursday we will be going outside for a games orientated sessions. Furthermore year 4 pupils will continue to go swimming on a Wednesday afternoon. Pupils are required to bring the appropriate kit on these days which can be found on the school website/ prospectus.
Homework is set each week to be completed in both the pupils English and Maths workbooks. Their work is to be marked every Monday and new homework recorded Tuesday afternoon in their reading records.
Each pupil will have a personalised spelling list consisting of upto 10 words to learn for the following week, throughout the following week each pupil will get tested then receive a new list to be tested the following week. We currently test year 4 pupils one week and year 3 pupils the next.
Year 3= 50 - 51
Year 4= 52 - 53
Worksheets will be issued from the children's maths class.
