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:
Throughout our first Autumn term we are learning a large variety of interesting topics all across the curriculum...
Topic: We're going Roman crazy! Following our visit from the real life Roman Lucius, our topic work is all around Roman life, gods, food, army and much more.
Science: This term is rather electrifying I must say. throughout our first 8 weeks in Green class we'll be learning all about electricity from types of renewable energy to building our very own circuits.
Art and Design: Fun? Yes. Challenging? Yes. Messy? Of Course! To keep with our theme of the Romans art is all around Roman mosaics, together we'll design mosaics, practice creating paper versions till we finally create a large class mosaic of our own. It isn't just the children who are excited about this one.
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.
