Class 3GB, 2014-15
Welcome to 3GB!
Our class teacher is Mrs Bryant (lower phase leader) and our LSA is Mrs Squires. Miss Henessey also supports us as she takes out small groups of children for literacy and numeracy. Miss Winter also helps to learn as a 1:1.
We have had a brilliant start to the year and have settled in well as we have embraced the high expectations in our work and behaviour which means that we always try our best, work hard, respect others and are enthusiastic learners.
During lessons, we try hard to be resilient and love to challenge ourselves. We are proud of what we achieve and enjoy sharing the work we have done.
In Literacy, we have been using The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl as inspiration to write our own ‘Defeating the Monster’ stories, thinking carefully about the exciting word choices we can use to bring our stories to life. As well as stories, we have been writing non-chronological reports, using laptops to research on the internet in order to find lots of interesting facts to include. Next half term we will be looking at the three little pigs and alternative versions of this fairy tale.
In Numeracy, we have enjoyed learning addition, subtraction, multiplication and division methods, and we can now use these methods to help us solve word problems. Also, we have been practising our times tables and number facts and we are making good progress.
Our topic this term has been rocks and soils and from this, we have learnt fascinating facts about what is below our feet. Furthermore, we have an exciting trip planned to Whatley Quarry and we cannot wait to find out more!
