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 the children are not learning in 3G they will be at their main schools.  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 this page. 

This half term we are reading...

Organisation and Planning Documents

This half term our topic is Knock, knock who's there? We will be talking about storms and dangers at sea and investigating materials and making model structures. We will also be learning about comparing 2 digit numbers and ordering events.

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. 

Tapestry : For some children in the resource base we use Tapestry to record observations of their learning. We encourage our parents to log into Tapestry to comment on their child's learning and add observations of their child at home. Log in information has been emailed to all of our parents. 

PE: Our focus for P.E this term is developing our core skills of running,  throwing and jumping. 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

Our Learning Journey

Writing, Reading & Speech

We read with the children in class every day.  Please can you read with your child at home each 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.

Easter Breakfast

This morning Reverend Tony joined us with Class R to tell us all about The Easter Story, he read three stories from his Bible; An Important Meal, A Different Day and Happy Day.  We found out that Jesus and his friends ate lamb and bread and they drank wine. We said a thank you prayer before Reverend Tony left school, we said thank you for our family and for our friends and our yummy breakfast.
The children were beautifully behaved and very thoughtful in what they asked. Well Done.

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.

Our bus adventure

On Friday 2nd February our lass joined Class R for a fun filled day in Warrington. We started our day in Warrington museum to explore the art work. We made stories and soundscapes for the art work. After exploring what we could see happening in the art work and we played picture statues; posing just like the people in the pictures. After lunch we walked through the town to Build a Bear. We chose a new class bear mascot called Frankie. The children were very well behaved and had a lovely day. Thank you to all our grown up's who joined us we couldn't have managed without you, we hope you had a good day too.

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. 

 

Halton Library

During the Spring term we have been exploring our love of books. We took part in World Book Day dressing up as our favourite book characters, we explored the travelling book fayre and enjoyed sharing our new books with our peers. We also had some special visitors come to school;  Little Red Riding Hood and The Cat in the Hat who read us some of their favourite stories. We visited the local library with Class R and we listened to some more stories,   completed a book hunt and we became new library members. We loved booking out our first library books. What little book worms we have been this tern! 

A Giant's home

We wished we could climb a magic beanstalk and visit the giant. So this is what we did this term when we visited Halton Castle to see if we could find the giant. We explored the views for miles around and we were amazed at the size of the stone blocks. We took some rubbings of the sandstone, it was very rough. 

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 class bear to look after.  He needs lots of help and he is always looking to see who is being a good friend. Frankie will be sent home with a different child each Friday. Our bear will travel with his diary for you to write and draw in so you can share any adventures you have together. His bag has everything you need for a fun week together.  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.
