Welcome to class Fiennes!
The teacher in our class is Miss Berry and our Teaching Assistants are Miss Ryan and Mr Fraser. There are 13 pupils in our KS3 class, we are a mix of year 7, year 8 and year 9 pupils.
This term we will be studying a range of new topics. In English, we will be learning about modern literature, we will be using Talk for Writing strategies to learn about narrative structure and even attempt to write our own stories. . As part of Maths we will be doing lots of work around number, and finding lots of different ways to add, subtract half, and double them! In PE we will be learning about invasion games and playing hockey and in Art we will be looking at Nature and using natural materials to create some unique pieces of artwork.
Class Fiennes have been working extremely hard this term, in English they have been using talk for writing strategies to learn all about contemporary literature, reading Roald Dahls The Twits and writing their own short stories. Class Fiennes have also been very busy in the cooking room, learning all about a healthy and balanced diet, they have prepared healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner, looking how small substitutes can make some of our favourite meals much healthier. In Maths we have been working hard on our number skills developing a range of methods to help us solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
We are now busy developing our map reading skills in Geography, learning all about using Microsoft Publisher in computing and getting ready for the festive season, preparing our stall for the Christmas fair which we are very excited about!
