Peregrine 2016 - 2017

Welcome to Peregrine Class


Our teacher is Mr Campbell and our teaching assistant is Mrs Mochrie.

We are a mixed year 3/4 class, who are aspiring to be amazing in absolutely everything that we do. We understand that we don’t always get things right first time around, but we are constantly striving to find new ways to improve our work.  We are a very creative class and enjoy to write at any given opportunity; we particularly enjoy trying new genres of writing and are really looking forward to our text for the term, Stone Age Boy.

In English, we will be looking at creating our own narratives based around our class book.  The children will experiment with different story openings and choose which they believe creates the greatest hook to inspire their audience to read on.  Additionally, the children will be learning about suffixes, prefixes, determiners and prepositions (fear not – it sounds much more complicated than it actually is!!) in our embedded SPaG sessions throughout literacy lessons.

In Maths, we are going to be pushing ourselves hard in order to secure our understanding of place value in numbers up to four digits.  The children will be exploring how they can order, round and sort numbers into different patterns, as well as building on their current understanding of addition and subtraction.  With so much going on in the Peregrine class, we may even find time to explore our amazing school environment and do some mathematics outside of the classroom.

Throughout the school year we will constantly be aiming to improve our reading fluency, speed and comprehension.  This will come with plenty of practise and is something that we need to be doing once a night or at least three times a week.  The children in Peregrine class have a real passion for reading – it is vital that we feed this passion to provide them with the best possible opportunities in their educational journey.

Our topic for the autumn term will be all about the Stone Age. We will study chronology and look at how the world changed so much in this weird and wonderful period of history.  We will be observing how the Stone Age people hunted for food and sourcing the materials that they used for making their homes.  Furthermore, we will aim to create our own Stone Age inspired cave paintings and try our hand at designing our own prehistoric jewellery – Paris and Milan will have nothing on the trendsetters here at Ashton Hayes.

In P.E, we will be learning how to dance (or not to, as the case may be) from Mr Campbell.  We will be looking at how we can create different shapes in dance and hold them for set periods of time.  We will also be looking at how we can make smooth transitions and keep to a set rhythm… wish us luck!  Additionally, we will be learning to play Rugby with AJ of a Tuesday morning in our P.E sessions.  Rugby is a great sport for improving our team work and listening skills; skills that I am sure will benefit us both inside the classroom and out.

Keep your eyes peeled both on here and on the school Facebook page for pictures and updates on how the children are getting on in class!

Shhhh... The Peregrines are hard at work.
