WE ARE BRILLIANT BLUES!
That's right...we are brilliant in every way!
Our teacher is Miss Goodwin and Mrs Simpson, Mrs Wood, Mrs Redford and Mrs Scott help us with our learning too! Mrs Mowbray and Mrs Burbridge visit us once a week to listen to readers.
Blue Class is a Year 3 and Year 4 mixed class where we try our hardest and have promised to try our best, focus and listen carefully to make ourselves even better than we already are! In Blue Class we are trying to be independent so we must remember to hand our books in when they need changing, complete our homework and remember to hand it in and organise ourselves for P.E and swimming (when it is our turn).
A focus across the school at the moment is reading so in Blue Class we are challenging ourselves to read at home at least 4 times a week but daily reading is preferred as the more we read the better! There will be a reward for the class who read the most at home and we want to win! Reading is really important for our development so it needs to be recorded in our reading records so Miss Goodwin knows when we have read and can then ask us questions to see if we have understood what we have read.
Homework is given out every Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Each week we receive spellings which will be tested the following Friday so that we can keep practising them all week. We will usually receive a piece of Maths and Literacy weekly on a Friday too but at the moment we have our project on the Romans to be working on. We have already received some fantastic shields and swords! If we are stuck with our homework we can ask Miss Goodwin on Monday so that we still have time to complete it for Wednesday. Reading as much as possible in a week is part of our homework too. If for some reason we don’t receive any homework we need to practise our times tables on time tables rockstars, we all know our log ins. If our log ins decide not to work then we can practise our times tables on other online games or in writing.
P.E and Swimming
We are really lucky because we have Mrs Potts teaching us P.E on a Wednesday afternoon as well as swimming so we get to practise lots of skills each week. Miss Goodwin will sometimes teach P.E also which is why we must make sure our P.E kit comes into school on a Monday and stays in school all week. Even though it is getting colder we will still teach some P.E lessons outside so we must have our indoor and outdoor kits with us. Blue Class are swimming this term so we must remember our kits and £2.80 each Tuesday.
It is the last term for the children in Blue Class now and we are busy working away! More details and pictures will follow as we progress into the term so keep checking our page. At the moment here is a brief overview of what to expect from us this term.
Our Topic for this half-term is called Truly Scrumptious. This is a Design and Technology project based around growing foods and then using these to create and market a food product. The children will be set the challenge to create a product from a set of ingredients grown in our very own poly tunnel. Don’t worry, you will get chance to taste test! Our writing will also be linked to this topic including writing a recipe and a story to linked to this recipe.
In Maths we will be reviewing number, fractions, time and shape and working on any areas we think need a focus so we are extra prepared for our transition into next year. In Science we are continuing with living things involving classification and then will be moving onto sound looking at different types of sounds and how they are created
As you know, our class play is approaching fast so please ensure your child is equipped with their costume this week ready for rehearsals. We are so excited to perform ‘Dragon Days’ to you and we hope you enjoy it!
Miss Goodwin's door is always open should you have any questions or queries.
