Green Class

Green Class is a year 3/4 class taught by Mr Palk and supported by Miss Greenwood and Mrs Todd.

 

 

Learn by Hearts: Each week, on a Friday, the children will look at maths facts to learn. We will then test these facts in class the following week. The children will then continue to learn these facts for an additional week- hopefully bettering their score from the previous week. At the end of the 2nd week, the children will have new facts to learn
