Welcome to Class 3
We have had an exciting start to our year so far! In our class, the class teacher is Chloe Argent and our curriculum teaching assistant is Sharon. We are also very pleased to have Emma, Lorna and Debbie supporting in our new class. The staff team are very excited to have welcomed all of our pupils into our fabulous class this week. We have really enjoyed getting to know some of the young people in our class.
Our theme this term is ‘Changes’ and we have started our unit by reading the story “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and exploring the story in depth in all of our subject areas.
In English, we have been researching caterpillar life cycles, saying sounds, and practising our writing and mark making.
In Maths, we have been working on counting and finding shapes found in our story.
In Science, we have used our five senses to investigate apples in different states of matter. We taste tested some apple juice, apple sauce, and crunchy apples. Yum! We also enjoyed potting some plants for a lovely sensory experience.
In DT, we went on a walk and did some blackberry picking. The next day we got the change to use our blackberries to make a delicious smoothie!
We have also enjoyed using the new playground equipment outside. We spent the afternoon laughing and smiling together.
Hi everyone, just a quick update about what we have been up to this week. Staying with our theme about “Changes” and our topic story “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” we indulged ourselves with some tasty fruit kebabs and chocolate to dip them into. We will always find an excuse to introduce food and tastes into our learning!! It was an ideal opportunity to look at changing state as we explore chocolate that is cold and then when it has been melted. Independence was encouraged to chop the fruit and to help with mixing and measuring. There was even an element of enthusiasm when it came to washing up!! Our senses were awakened as we explored different fruit by feel and smell whilst unable to see…
We are working really hard on our fine motor skills to perfect our mark making both functionally and intentionally. We have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes and symmetry in nature and the environment. We also had an impromptu teacher cover as one of our students took the reins and led our Communication session!!
Catch up with you all soon, Class3
