The small school with BIG ideas!

Class 3

Welcome to Class 3!

2019/2020

 

Class 3 Teachers: Mrs Smith and Mrs Wright 

Class 3 Higher Level Teaching Assistant: Mrs Assirati 

 

Welcome to Class 3!

We have had a great start to the new academic year; We have set the PACE for an action packed year ahead:  

 

  • P- Pride in ourselves
  • A – Achieve the best we can
  • C – Curious thinkers
  • E – Everyone together!

 

This term, our main topic is the 'GROOVY GREEKS' where we have been learning about the origins of democracy and how this has shaped who we are as citizens in Britain today.   We intend to guide our children through the KS2 curriculum so that they build on their existing knowledge and critical thinking skills and continue to deepen their understanding of the world they live in.   We want our children to appreciate what has happened in the past as well as to become more confident learners and creators in today's society.  We want our children to be responsible, caring and active members of the community who can make informed decisions about the world they live in and influence their own futures in a positive and optimistic way.

 

 

We love reading!

We love reading! 1 Welcome to Starbooks!
Our Starbooks loyalty cards are starting to fill up!  We are having a competition to see which year group loves reading the most in class 3.  We have to read our books and then write a detailed and informative review to earn a stamp on the loyalty card and place a counter in our Year group cup.

We have been learning how to write formal balanced arguments.  We  researched Greek Gods to decide which was the best!  We planned our work through a series of hot seating and interview exercises as well as through writing character descriptions to compare the Gods.  After that. we carefully drafted our arguments.  Next, we used peer evaluation, editing and revising skills to improve our work.  We have sent our writing to another school for them to make a decision and declare the King or Queen of the Gods.  We are looking forward to the results!
