Welcome to Class Armstrong.
The teacher in our class is Miss O’keefe and our Teaching Assistants are Ms Hutton and Miss Manners. There are 13 pupils in our KS3 class and we are a mix of year 7 and 8 pupils.
This term we will be learning about the story ‘The Twits’ as part of our English topic. We will be writing our own versions of a narrative story with an exciting event and the resolution!
In Maths, we will be spending time developing our number skills to help us in other areas of Maths as well as help us with our functional maths outside of school.
This term Class Armstrong are studying a historical figure, Charles Dickens. We will be completing activities based around his biography and learning about the main events that took place throughout his life. During reading lessons, class Armstrong will be reading one of Dicken’s classics ‘A Christmas Carol’ and will be performing it as a class as part of our Christmas activities.
Within maths lessons class Armstrong will be practicing their time skills by managing their daily routines and gaining a deeper understanding of how it links to the times of the day.
In music we have been learning about percussion instruments and using them in order to create sound effects for a story.
