3SM 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 3SM's class page!
My name is Mr Mason. I have been at Offley for over sixyears 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.
Week 2 Autumn 2 update
The class has worked really hard this week. They have really focussed on what we are doing, listening and trying to apply their knowledge in different scenarios. I have seen a real change in the class over the last two to three weeks with a new level of maturity coming in. Star of the week this week was Jacob Hughes for having such a super attitude towards his learning particularly in maths, well done Jacob!
This week the children started to learn about Playscripts. We have used Talk4Writing to map and learn 'Little Red Riding Hood'. Next week, the children will be writing their own version of the story and we will be doing some word level work on word classes.
In Maths this week we have been looking at multiplication, particularly the 3 and 4s. We have been exploring which facts are important and help us in answering number sentences we do not know.
|Here you can see that known facts are used to help work out unknown facts. For example: we know 2 x 3 = 6 so 3 x 3 is 2 x 3 = 6 + 1 x 3 = 3 so 6 + 3 = 9|
As you know our BIG question for our PBL is 'What, no iphone? We have started to look at the Bronze Age. When it occured in Britain and why it was called the Bronze Age. In Art the children used natural materials to print a landscape. In PE the children have been learning new skills in gymnastic with Mrs Clarkson. We have also started our swimming lessons this week, with groups working on their strokes. In RE, the children have continued learning about Christianity and what its beliefs are. Homework and spellings are now out and the children have their TimeTables RockStar passwords. Spelling patterns for this week are the prefixes 're' and 'mis'.
In Science, the children have learnt about the three types of rock and how they are made: Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic. The children sketched different rocks and discussed their properties.
