Welcome to the Lions class page
Welcome to our fantastic Lions’ class!
It has been a pleasure getting to know the children last term and already we are thrilled with their progress in such a short space of time!
In Lions, our teacher is Mrs Ahlquist on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and Mrs Harding on Thursdays and Fridays. We are also very fortunate to have Mrs Brown working with us for the most of the week and supporting with class interventions.
Last term, we loved using Monsters Inc as a stimulus for writing stories. We did really well to up-level our vocabulary choices and improve our setting and character descriptions. We were super proud of our final ‘hot task’ stories and loved sharing these with each other.
This term in English, we will be looking at non-chronological reports and improving our grammar skills through varies activities. We will also be continuing with ‘bug comprehension’ and accelerated reader on some days of the week. It is really important for the children to continue to read a range of literature at home and read books by a range of authors.
In maths, we have looked in depth at multiplication and division as well as learn some formal methods for multiplying. We are beginning to apply our mathematical skills to solving tricky problems and reasoning about them. This term, we will focus on fractions and telling the time.
This term, we have blocked our foundation curriculum subjects. In geography, the children will study the UK with Mrs Harding and with me; we will explore rocks and soils in science.
We are also thrilled to have just started our rehearsals for our year 3 and 4 production on ‘The Tempest’. We look forward to performing at the end of term!
Our PE days will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and as the weather be
