We have many heroes in this classroom. After an assembly about making small differences that add up to big changes, two Year 3 heroes litter picked for their entire breaktime.
During art, children experimented with their paint brushes and water colours. They were (amazingly) neat, yet colourful, and creative. There were multiple techniques that the children had to master with the brush and the end results were very creative.
In Maths, I had further classroom heroes, children who challenged themselves without fear of error and children who carefully unpicked difficult question. We worked on place value questions and the children have learnt varying ways in which to represent numbers using pictures and resources.
In English, our classroom heroes took feedback, acted on it and made a lovely setting descriptions. The were writing about what it looks like to live in the Stone Age. We practised by describing photos that our friends couldn't see, but later had to draw using our descriptions. Later, we Freeze Framed our future story plans, that we aer preparing to write next week about the Stone Age.
I would like to add that I am very impressed with the attitudes of Year 3 students. They listen well, are very respectful and are enjoyable to teach. It has been a great start to the year.
