Growing, Learning Laughing, Succeeding... Together!
In all, there are seventeen friendly individuals, eleven Year Fives and six Year Sixes
and two adults, Mr Skill (Teacher) and Mrs King (TA) in Class Three.
Throughout the academic year, we enjoy a wide range of topics - supplemented by a variety of outside instructors and teachers.
Class 3 wrote this poem during their Literacy Session in Term 3, which was based around our sense of 'beginnings and belonging'.
They all wrote a sentence about themselves and then we discussed creating fluency through our punctuation and stanza structure.
We Come From
(Based on the poem ‘I Come From’ by Dean Atta)
We come from close friendships and content families;
...from busy families and our times together.
We come from asthma attacks where our families were there.
We come from lines of animal lovers;
...from homes of friendly dogs, cats and small ponies.
We come from England but have lived elsewhere.
We come from Slovenia.
We come from pepperoni pizza and a Sunday roast with pork stuffing.
We come from stolen sandwiches at the zoo.
We come from our dad’s racing fun.
We come from dance to the world of figure skating.
We come from swimming lessons in hot pools to swimming pools in the blazing sun.
We come from the most beautiful golf courses in the world.
We come from new parts.
At the beginning of Term Three, Mr Skill set Class Three a challenge to read enough books to build a tower taller than Emily.
Every child has contributed a book to our tower, with the average book being 281 pages - kindly calculated by the Year Six Girls.
The most popular authors seen in our tower, 69 books high, were Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Liz Pichon (Tom Gates), David Walliams (Ice Monster, Gansta Granny, etc) and Michael Morpurgo (Friend or Foe, Warhorse and Kensuke's Kingdom).
Making 'Brush Monsters in Science!
On Friday 15th December, Class Three were joined by Mr Edward Richards a Mechanical Engineer from Atlantis Resources who wanted to give us a taste of what being an engineer was like. We were also joined by Mrs Pitman-Jones and four children from Sutton Benger.
Class Three and Mr Skill would like to thank everyone, especially FoOS, who have donated unused or brand new reading books to us. After finding a moment to sort through the vast selection, they've added more variety to our bookshelves. Below is a selection of books, stamped, banded and ready to be read.
