3SM 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 3SM's class page!
My name is Mr Mason. I have been at Offley for over six years and I have been teaching for over 18 years. During this time I have taught across schools in Kent and Cheshire. I am a member of the senior leadership team as Assistant Head and I currently run the Lower Keystage 2 team; I am also the Assessment and Curriculum coordinator. I am married with 4 children, I keep fit and love reading. My favourite genre is historical fiction, though I love reading all types of history.
Well done everyone for a great Sports Day on Wednesday, all of the children showed great determination and resilience in wanting to finish their races.
Many thanks for your kind donations to Lucas' fund for a running track at school. The children looked great wearing red and blue which were Lucas' favourite colours.
In English this week, the children have found the features of explanation texts and worked on using possesive apostrophes for singular and plural nouns. When we come back after the holidays, the children will plan their innovation text on the water cycle by closely following the original text.
In Maths this week, the children have continued with their learning about fractions. After half term, they will start a new maths topic 'angles', learning hos to recognise obtuse, acute and right angles in shapes and capital letters. I have set the children some questions on angles on the prodigygame.com maths website.
In the afternoons this week, the children had a special guest Mr Higgins, a retired Headteacher, to talk to the children about the history of Sandbach. The children were fascinated to learn about the origins of the name 'Sandbach' and how it has chanegd over time. They also discovered that the original St Mary's church was originally built from sandstone. When it started to crumble and erode, it was rebuilt using millstone grit mined from Mow Cop! Mr Higgins also gave them other nuggets of information, ask your child to see what they can remember.
The children have now also finished their paintings using the technique devised by Georges Suerat - pointillism. They will go on display along the Y3 corridor. After half term, we will start our new Science topic magnets and continue our local history project about Sandbach. We will be going out into the town to look at the different buildings to see if we can find any similarities that give clues as to the architects that designed them. A date hasn't been set yet, but we will need parent voluteers to help look after the children on our walk.
