Welcome to the Wonderful Class 3G

Welcome to Class 3G.

We are the Infant Assessment base at The Brow. This year in Class 3G we have two groups of Children.  A Monday and Tuesday Group and Thursday and Friday Group.  When chidlren are not learning in 3G they will be at their main school.  We have good working relations with all schools and aim to make sure children enjoy their learning.

We have all settled beautifully in to our new class and we are enjoying learning lots of new things every day. Remember to check what we have been doing each week in the 'Our Learning Journey' section further down the page, 

This half term we are reading...

Organisation and Planning Documents

This half term our topic is Let's Celebrate and we will be talking about families and how we celebrate together. We will also be learning about comparing amounts and ordering events. The children will think about the differences between ouselves and the differences between night and day.  

Home School Diaries : These books are a vital communication tool between ourselves and our parents. We will add comments daily and will check them every morning when the children come into class. Please add comments to them and any positive achievements you would like us to share in Class 3G. 

PE: Our focus for P.E this term is developing our core skills of travelling, balancing, throwing and catching. We are also developing our fine motor skills; pencil grip, scissor control, dressing and using cutlery. The children need to bring full PE kit including pumps for indoors and trainers for outdoors on their two days. As a 'Forest School' we access the outdoors as much as possible therefore it would be ideal if your child brought a pair of wellington boots too. 

Snack & Water Bottles:  In Class 3G we have daily family time and this incorporates a class snack time. We provide the children with a light snack which could be crumpets, crackers and cheese, brioche, toast and a selection of fruits as well as water and milk. As a Healthy Eating School we do allow children to bring in their own 'healthy' snack if they prefer to. Please do not send your child into school with any chocolate, crisps or sugary snacks. Every child needs to bring a clearly labelled water bottle which we encourage them to drink throughout the day alongside other drinks. 

Thank you

Learning Journey

Writing, Reading & Speech

We read with children in class every day.  Please can you read with your child at home on a night time. We use colourful semantics with the children during all activities and this includes during book time.

The 'BIG TALK' during reading we are looking at different pictures and asking/answering questions:

         Who?                                       What?                                    Where?

         When?                                      How?                                       Why?

Homework

We will be working on basic skills such as:

Phonics

Handwriting skills

Number Skills

These will be distributed based on individual needs.

Learning in the Outdoors

We value learning outside of the classroom. We use the outdoors every day as part of our curriculum offer to enrich our learning. We have fantastic school grounds with two woodland areas, a large playground and the Early Years garden. We also enrich our topics by participating in school visits. We update our page with photographs from each event. 

Wow Moments

C3G Remembers

On the 10th November we walked to Shopping City to look at our poppy art on display with lots of other Halton school children's. The children were excited to spot their own artwork and made reference to the poppies on display that they particularly liked. The children took great delight in pointing our art work out to the shopping city staff who came over to thank us. Well done children you were beautifully behaved and your artwork was amazing.

Harvest

We have had a scrumptious autumn term. We have been exploring seeds, conkers, pine cones and acorns. We took part in the whole school, 'big Harvest Breakfast' where we joined Class Reception to taste some new foods. More recently we have carved and explored pumpkins. They were very slimy and the children were very surprised to discover what the inside of a pumpkin looked like. We have had some very spooky fun.

The Local Area

We walked around the local area to investigate the different types of houses and buildings. The children could compare the houses and name the features similiar to them all. We could recognise some of the numbers on the houses too. 

We found the local post box the children posted their letters which they had written in class. We cannot wait for them to arrive in the post soon. 

 

Praise Points

Our children are regularly rewarded for their behaviours and attitudes around school each day. As the children collect points they are rewarded with certificates, merit badges and prizes at 50, 100, 150, 200 and 250 praise points.

The children will be awarded praise points for a number of things; attendance, pleasing work, good manners, having the right equipment, achievin next steps, good toileting and eating habits and displaying good manners to others.

There are sanctions in place for children who don't follow our school rules as outlined in the school behaviour policy. 

 

 

 

Class Bear

In class we have our very own bear to look after each day. He needs lots of help in class and he's always looking to see who is being a good friend. Our bear will be sent home with a different child each Friday. Our bear will travel with a diary for you to fill in telling us all about your adventures together. His  bag has everything you need for a fun weekend together. Don;t forget to write something exciting in his diary to share with everyone in school.  Please remember to return him to school the following week. 

Top Table

Well done to our Class 3G children for being chosen to sit at the top table at lunch time this term.

Star of the Week

On Monday and Friday afternoons we join the whole school for special assemblies. On Monday afternoon we join the assembly to talk about our British core values. Each week a child is chosen who has tried to demonstrate the value such as friendliness, kindness, helpfulness or courage. The children receive a special mention from Mrs Webb and their name is placed in the Core Values Hall of Fame book. It is a special honour to be chosen.

On Friday afternoon we go to our whole school celebration assembly. Each week we choose a child or group of children that have worked particularly well over the week or have accomplished something remarkable to share their achievements with the whole school. The children are rewarded with praise points from Mrs Webb and a celebratory well done from their peers!

 

Buddies

We have some special friends in Year 5 and 6 who are our special buddies. These are our friends who play with us, talk to us and spend time making sure we are having fun during playtimes. Our buddies look out for us. We are very lucky to have them and they help us whenever they can. Thank you Class 5 and 6.
