Year 3 - Sweden
Welcome to Sweden class. We are in Year 3 and our teacher is Mrs Taylor. Mrs Long, Mrs Peel and Mrs Forsdick are our Teaching Assistants.
On Monday we had a visit from Alison Wright, from the charity Just Different. She came in to talk to us all about changing attitudes towards disability and differences. Each class had a chance to work with Alison and ask her questions. We all enjoyed trying some of the every day tasks that we find so easy in different ways.
The children have been thinking about their learning and progress in maths by using our new assessment system called Balance.
The children look at our Learning / Assessment wheel and rate how they felt alongside the learning objective of each maths lesson.
The children are interested to see their scores against Mrs Taylor’s, and vice versa!
This information is cross-checked and inputted onto the Balance software system on our I-pads which the children enjoy discussing and looking at. They all want to be secured with a padlock!
It is good to see the children growing in confidence and scoring more highly when a concept is revisited or verbal feedback is given.
We've been working hard since starting back in Year 3. Lots of fun learning has been going on. We have been making the most of the sunny days to explore our shadows because our science topic this term is Light and Shadow.
We have been thinking carefully about how we see, what darkness is and what a shadow is. We have thought about when it is easiest to see our shadows and we went outside to try and run away from our shadows!
