Welcome to the Lions class page

We are a class made of up 29 wonderfully eager and enthusiastic learners, who take every challenge in their stride. Joining us are Miss Poole, who is our class teacher, and Mrs Brown and Mrs Bowers, who are our classroom assistants.

Each day is filled with all sorts of different learning opportunities. Our mornings usually involve: Literacy, whole class guided reading, assembly and a maths lesson before lunch! In the afternoon we have the chance to read or take quizzes on our library books and then explore other areas of the curriculum.

In year three, the children begin their journey on the Accelerated Reader programme. This gives them the chance to become more independent with their reading and allows us as teachers to see how well the children are understanding the texts they read. The link below has a bit more information for you. Please read regularly with the children to give them the chance to explain their reasoning.
