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.
Another great week. The children are certainly making my search for the Star of the week difficult as they are now really settling into life in the Juniors and the new pace and expectations. Well done to Zachary Parry for being our Star of the Week this week!
The children are now writing their innovation text based upon our book, the 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura. We have been planning and writing excerpt from the book; focussing on descriptive language and sentence structure. Below are some pictures of the children's writing.
In Maths we have been looking at counting in 5's, 50s, 4s and 8s as well as adding 1, 10 or 100 more. Next week we will be exploring patterns in numbers! The children have been answering reasoning questions and applying their knowledge in different contexts. Below are some examples.
Our BIG question for our PBL is 'What, no iphone? How did our ancestors in the Stone age survive without technology?' The children have been exploring Stone Age housing. Comparing the different types and choosing one to live in. We have also continued looking at Stone Age art. Next week we will be exploring clothes in the Stone Age. In science we have been looking at why animals and plants need to eat and what food makes us healthy and which foods provide us with the nutrients we need. Next week the children will be planning a Stone Age banquet.
Homework and spellings are now out and the children have their TimeTables RockStar passwords.
