Class 3 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class 3's page. Here you will find all our current 'goings on'- including examples of our childrens' work, our long term plan, any competitions we have attended and much more.
I am Mr Greenwood and I am happy to be again teaching Class 3 and our wonderful cohort of year 5 and 6 children. Alongside me, there will be Mrs Greenwood working in our class who is our full time Teaching Assistant and our very own qualified Forest School leader.. We are continuing to work closely with the Rossendale Leisure Trust who provide highly qualified coaches to teach three hours of PE per half term.
We have PE every Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon (PE will be in the form of swimming in 4 week blocks per group); helping us to achieve 2 hours of taught PE each week. To add to this our class is lucky to have 4 trained Sports Ambassadors to help run active playtimes, organise level 1 school competitions and assist Mrs Greenwood in delivering her 'Change for Life' club every Friday playtime (in the PM). It is important for all of our children to have full PE kit ready and available and that, for these days, jewellery should be kept to a minimum so that it can be easily removed for sessions.
Swimming takes place every Monday at Marl Pits where the children will attend in groups for blocks of 4 weeks per time and it is essential that full kit is brought to school with your child on this day. The sessions will be from 9.30-10.00am and it is important that your child is punctual on this day as we will leave very soon after 9.00am to allow us to travel and change. For children who have hair that may fall into their eyes when wet; a swim cap must be worn for lessons. Girls musn't wear bikini type outfits and boys should take care to make sure that their swimming attire isn't too loose. If possible, a draw string bag should hold your child's swimming kit so that potential loss of kit is minimized.
Please note- your child will be made well aware of which group they are in so they know exactly when to bring their kit.
Your chilld will experience a large amount of reading opportunities here in Class 3, Mr Greenwood and Mrs Greenwood are on hand to read 1:1 with our children and as reading is a high focus and part of the school's vision of Literacy, reading is a crucial part of our English lessons. We will read a large number of books this year, each being chosen to enrich and inspire our children's learning. We will update you as to which books we have read right here as the year progresses.
Your child has a reading record book in which questions are set by an adult with whom your child has read with. here your child can respond with their own thoughts about their book and also be challenged to think in different ways about what they have read. Children are encouraged to show their reading records at anytime to our members of staff. These books should be brought into school every day alongside their reading book.
Class 3 run an 'open door' policy and as it is of utmost importance that your child feel safe and secure in their learning; we encourage an open and honest dialogue with parents- so feel free to ask to pop in after school for a chat.
