Class 3

Welcome to Class 3

 

My name is Mrs Rushton and I am the class teacher in Class 3. Our class includes the wonderful children in Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. I love teaching Class 3 and I am very proud of the children's attitudes to learning, kindness to each other and achievements. 

 

As the oldest children in the school, it is our responsibility to set a good example for the rest of children in the school.  I think my class do this through their thoughtful and caring attitudes to each other, their hard working ethos and through the responsibilities they take on within our school community. 

 

I hope you enjoy looking at our class page and finding out a little about what it is like to be in Class 3!

Class 3 have a GROWTH MINDSET!

 

This year, the children at Marsh Baldon are working hard to develop a growth mindset. This means that they are trying not to say negative things like: 'I can't do this!' Instead we have been adding the very special word 'yet' to say things like 'I can't solve this problem yet!'

 

In Class 3, we have also been encouraging each other to consider each piece of work as a working progress and to always think: 'how can I make this better?' We use Purple Pens of Power to edit and improve our first drafts and the children are becoming really good at reflecting on what they have done well and need to improve on.

 

Developing the children's mindset is really help create a more positive and purposeful working environment in Class 3 and our children are leading the example for the rest of the school. We have decided that we embrace mistakes in our class and prefer taking risks than always staying in out comfort zone when we are learning. 

 

I am very proud of how much the children are adapting their mindsets and will update this section with examples of great growth mindset soon!

 

Here are some examples of what showing a growth mindset means to us as a class and how we can use our purple pens to edit our work:

Maths in Term 1

 

Last term we were busy working on place value and understanding number. 

 

The children solved lots of problems involving place value and deepened their understanding of the number system including decimals. 

 

With a more secure understanding of number, the class then went on to apply this to work on calculation and using methods such as column addition and subtraction.

 

Here are some pictures of the children working hard whilst having fun in maths:

Picture 2 Solving problems involving the value of digits

Viking Day

 
 

0n Wednesday 18th January Class 2 and 3 took part in a Vikings day because our topic is the Vikings.

By James

 

 
 

We went to the hall (I was feeling exited) and met a funny Viking lady called Lauren. She gave us an overview of Viking history and she was so funny (she made Miss Harwood cry).

By Ammarah

 

 
 

After break we made a fake burial where King George (George) was buried with his servant (Janice) they were both buried in his long boat. He was buried with all his precious things such as his sword, shield, helmet, armour and his favourite horse.

By Faith

 

 

 
 

Then we played some Viking games in the afternoon. One team was Team Loki; the other was Team Thor.

By Sam

 

 
 

All in all I found it really funny and it was very amusing as well. I learned a lot and had fun. I wish they would come back.

The children in Class 3 helped to choreograph this fantastic dance to one of the songs from the musical 'The Lion KIng'. Here is a video of their performance.

Class Assemblies

 

Our school values help guide us in everything we do in Class 3. These are: Teamwork, Love, Respect and Courage.

 

Most weeks in Class 3, the children take it in turns to lead an assembly with their class. This is something they prepare completely independently and take great pride in. 

 

The children base their assembly on one of our school values or learning linked to that value and they present their thoughts and ideas. This sometimes lead to positive class discussion.  It is wonderful to see the children showing confidence and sensitivity as well as taking ownership of their learning.

 

Here is an example of a class assembly presentation on the value of Moral Courage:

Our Class Assembly on moral courage- by Poppy T, Olena and Lilly

 

 

We presented this PowerPoint to the rest of our class.  The children really listened to our ideas and at the end they clapped.  We asked them questions and let them think about what they were going to say and then they shared their ideas with everyone. By the end of our class assembly we had all thought about what we think moral courage is.
