Welcome to class Snowdon!
The teachers in our class are Mrs Hegg and Miss Scott and our Teaching Assistants are Ms Maylett and Miss Kern, There are 11 pupils in our KS3 class, we are a mix of year 7, 8 and 9 pupils.
This term in Class Hillary we have been working hard in maths learning how to subtract numbers by using mental maths and column subtraction. We have continued to do Big Maths were we use mental maths to complete as many addition sums within a set time and improve our score week by week. Our English topic this term has been biographies and we have explored the biography of Charles Dickens. We have been able to fill in key information about Charles’ life as well as explore some of the stories that Charles Dickens wrote including A Christmas Carol.
One of our favourite days is on a Tuesday when we are able to go to Manchester Dogs Home where we gain work experience and learn what is involved in taking care of animals. We have also been enjoying doing Grow It on Wednesdays where we have been learning about different plants and how to maintain the school gardens ready to plant new seeds for the spring.
