We are the Class Three Team!
The Class Three team has 32 members; 30 explorers, 1 teaching assistant, Mrs O’Hare, and 1 class teacher, myself, Mrs Anderton.
Hello, and welcome to our class page.
This is where we will be keeping you updated with all the fun things we get up to at school.
In Class Three we love to be explorers and investigate the world around us and this term our learning is based around the theme: Into the Woods. We started our learning journey with Julia Donaldson’s story titled ‘The Gruffalo’. We LOVE this story! We began by looking closely at the characters. We have been thinking of words to describe the characters by their appearance and by what they said and did. We wanted to find out which character was the most popular in our team so we decided to make our own pictograms to represent number and find out! We will be learning lots of different mathematical skills to solve problems and find answers throughout the year.
During this term we are exploring the woodland story setting further using familiar and new stories, including the local legend Robin Hood. We will become authors and write sentences to describe our own woodland story setting. We are going to be geographers and explore our local environment, including Gedling woods. We are also developing our scientific skills by researching local animals and plants. Throughout the term we’ll become artists, looking closely at the flower and leaf patterns by the artist William Morris. It will be fascinating to find out about him and the techniques he used.
We would love to share our learning with you and so we’ll be uploading photos of our learning journey as we go along.
We received a letter from the Sheriff of Nottingham!
He made us work hard to get our friend Tiny back!
Our Spring Term Learning
During the Christmas holidays we investigated how toys have changed over time by talking to the oldest members of our families. We continued to learn about toys in school too.
At Phoenix we have been spending the week learning how to stay safe through our Safety Week theme.
We learnt how to stay safe by the roadside; in the community thinking about stranger danger; in the kitchen and hygiene safety and fire safety.
