The Class 4 team consists of Mrs Nevison (Class Teacher p/t), Mrs Rutter (Class Teacher p/t), Mrs Costello (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Thompson (Teaching Assistant).
In English this term, we have been exploring the book ‘Tuesday’ by David Wiesner. We started by ‘interrogating’ pictures from the book and discussing our thoughts in small groups. It was really interesting to look at the pictures individually and then try to piece together the story. Lottie’s group in particular had some very original ideas about the picture below.
This week we have been thinking about descriptive writing based on the book. We had fun mapping the model text as you can see! We will use the model text to inspire us when we start our own pieces of descriptive writing in a couple of weeks.
This term, something very exciting has been happening in Class 4. We have introduced a slot called Teacher of the Week. This is where one Class 4 child a week is given the opportunity to share something they are passionate about with the rest of the class. For one hour, they are the teacher and our class teacher and teaching assistants must sit and listen with everyone else.
It has been a real joy to hear the children share something that interests them each week. We are proud of all the children who have taken part so far for having the courage and the self-confidence to stand in front of the class for an hour. We have been amazed by how much our children know about diverse subjects!
So far we have enjoyed an introduction to Pokémon, a cake decorating demonstration, a brilliant singing lesson, a presentation on Batman and a lesson on aeroplanes and flying. We are impressed by how well all the children have planned their lessons and the thought they have given to the activities they asked the class to complete.
Well done Class 4!
