In Opal class, we love learning new things in fun and exciting ways. Our learning environment has amazing, fact-filled walls which help us if we are struggling in lessons. Our boards also change with our new topics which we love to learn about.
The topics that we have already learned and enjoyed were: The Stone Age (where we learned about fossils, Skara Brae, journeying to the centre of the earth and plants) and Paris (where we got to make AND EAT croissants and use Google Earth to explore the city)!
Each day we have time for reading a story which is great as we get to learn and discuss the books and the vocabulary inside. This helps us to use new and exciting words in our writing.
We have a comfy, colourful reading corner with books for everyone and inside there is a story box which allows us to become more imaginative and we love hearing each other’s stories.
In maths, there are lots of different challenges to have a go with. We have challenge cards to push us further in our learning. We have lots of equipment to help us learn too!
Miss Sanders and Mrs Thornton are always looking out for fantastic behaviour and attitudes towards learning. These are recognised with our ‘Proud Cloud’ and with raffle tickets. We love the proud cloud because it lets new people into our classroom know what we are like as a class and as individuals and we get to celebrate our success.
Turquoise class is made up of 31 courageous learners! We are a kind and helpful class and we accept each other’s opinions. If we make mistakes, we support each other and are kind. We don’t worry if we get things wrong because we can always try again. We never give up and we always try our best. When we fall down, we always get back up! When we do competitions, we always support each other – it’s not about winning, it’s the taking part that counts!
Miss Boswell is our teacher and she always helps us. She is very kind and polite. She is helpful and always tries her best too. Miss Boswell always says there is no wrong answer. Mrs Costick and Mrs Stockdale are our amazing teaching assistants. They help us too and they are nice to us. When we find things hard, they help us to try again.
We love writing stories and writing about our topics. We enjoy learning about history and geography. We love reading class books. We enjoy doing art with Mrs Harrison. PE is fun and keeps us fit and healthy! Year 4s enjoy going swimming every Wednesday. We learn how to speak French and sing new songs. We enjoy doing cooking, especially when we get to eat it! Yum yum! We learn something new every day!
We’re Turquoise class and we always try our hardest, no matter what!
