Welcome to Hogwarts Class
Hello everyone! We are Hogwarts Class, a class of 29 children who are ready to be resillent, reflective and resourceful learners. Our teacher is Miss Hedge and we have two wonderful teaching assistants - Mrs Page and Miss Sambrook. When discussing our class rules during our transition days, we have agreed, this year, to be curious and creative learners, to be respectful of other peoples opinions, and most of all - to have fun!
What are we learning about this term?
In our Topic work this term, we will be exploring The Battle of Britain in detail, allowing us to continue to build on our collaborative learning by working hard as historians. This, therefore, will help us build on our skills needed to become a Global Citizen.
We will be exploring how the events of Dunkirk initiated the Battle of Britain by understanding the placement of British soliders using a map. We shall be becoming historians through recognising that Germany invaded France and pushed the allied forces to the beaches of Dunkirk as a result British and French soldiers were trapped on three sides of Northern France by German troops and tanks.
Further on in our topic, we will be learning how technology impacted the Battle of Britain through discussing radar systems and the Dowding System. We will consider how the Chain Home system kept Britain safe by using our geographic skills to identify the locations of the radar stations and airfields and plot these onto a map.
In art and design, we will be learning how perspective is a three-dimensional object or spaces in two dimensional artwork. We will use this principal to sketch and shade a WW2 fighter plane.
In science, we will be exploring evolution and fossils.
We look forward to a great term!
I really enjoy PE at school because I love sports. We get to use the football goals and the adventure playground during break and lunch times. This year, I'm looking forward to not being the youngest in the school anymore because I'm now a Year 4! In class, I'm looking forward to learning about some more history! I really love maths and I enjoy English.
English is my favourite subject because I like writing. I enjoy learning about new punctuation and today we even wrote a sentence using a colon! A colon can be used at the start of a list! I'm looking forward to learning new things and also enrichment! Enrichment is on a Friday afternoon where we get to choose which fun activities we would like to do. If you get to 'Oustanding' on our behaviour chart you can pick your activity first!
I enjoy maths most at school! This is because I like addition and solving problems! I'm not afraid to make mistakes because everybody will make a mistake one day and they help our brains grow bigger. I'm looking forward to learning even more about maths this year! I feel safe and happy in school because all the adults will always help me!
