Welcome to Class 3 - Mr Mason
What we've been up to...
Class 3 took part in the school's interfaith week by looking at a different faith every week. We learnt about Sikhism, Islam and Judaism and were visited by representatives of the different faiths. The children then enjoyed learning about the building that each faith uses and the artefacts they use.
Our first art day of the year was themed around Autumn and the children enjoyed leaf printing and observational drawings of trees. They also worked together to decorate the continents that we have been learning about in our geography lessons.
We were lucky enough to be visited by the wonderful author Adam Bushnell who introduced the class to Jet the tortoise and helped inspire their creative writing. The children loved Adam's visit and were enthralled throughout and produced some excellent work during the rest of the week.
In science we are learning about the seasons, so we went on a walk around the school grounds in September to observe how things looked at this time of year. We talked about the trees and the colours and also the temperature in autumn. We took a picture of a tree in the school grounds and will take a picture of the same tree every month to observe how it changes over time.
Start of year 1
We started the new year by thinking about people who help us. We had lots of discussions and different activities around the classroom, including writing promises to ourselves about how we will help each other in Class 3 this year.
During Multicultural Week, Class 3 were reading Handa's Surprise and learning about different fruits. We chose a variety of fruits from the story for us to try. To prepare these, we practised our halving skills.
In Class 3 we have been learning about The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch. We followed instructions to create Mr Grinling, a delicious sandwich.
