Welcome to Team Fir Class’s website page. I am Mrs Charlotte Talbot and I will be teaching Fir Class this year. The class are a mixed Year Three and Four class who are excited for the challenges that this year will bring.
Already, we have begun to show the Bowsland values in and around school! Here is what PART-E means to us:
P- Pride. With our smart new uniforms, we are showing pride in our appearance. We always take pride in our learning using the Bowsland Trail to help us.
A – Achievement. We aim for the stars, the sky is our limit. Fir class challenge ourselves so that we can achieve our targets and be our Bowsland Best.
R – Responsibility. On Monday we gave out class jobs so that we are responsible for our area, cloakroom and the school environment. We are also responsible for our own equipment and have brand new pencil cases to look after.
T – Teamwork. Fir Class are always working as a team and we help other people and encourage them to try their best. Teamwork is an important value to Fir Class.
E – Enjoyment. As we reach for the stars, it is important that we enjoy ourselves.
Learning and Lunch
It was great to see so many parents join Fir Class for their learning and lunch today! We spent the morning writing play scripts using our class book ‘Egyptian Cinderella’. During the afternoon we typed up our play scripts ready to act them out next week. Thank you to all our family members who came in to share our learning with us!
This week Fir Class saw some super home learning! Our task was to create PowerPoints and videos about the Amazon Rainforest. Here are some examples:
October 2017 – Bring a Buddy day
Fir Class came into school along with their buddies to celebrate and raise money for the NSPCC. Our buddies had a busy day seeing what we get up to in class. Throughout the day our buddies supported us with our learning, including reminding to feedback and investigating how light affects shadows. Here are some photos:
Thursday 7th September 2017
Today was the Big Bang for our English text which is Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. We started the session by watching a clip from the film where Oliver asks for more. In small groups the class recreated this scene using role play. We then made gruel and tasted it. Some of us thought the gruel tasted delicious, however most thought it was disgusting and too salty!
