Miss Shaw

I have been teaching at Greyfriars for the last 8 years after teaching for twenty years in Nottingham. I am currently in a mixed year 3 and 4 class but I have had experience across early years and in years 3 and 4. I also oversee art across the school and I have enjoyed providing extra-curricular experiences in this subject with a KS1 art club. I intend for our class to be a lively learning environment where all children are valued and listened to.

Outside of school, I enjoy family time with my son, cooking and reading.  My happy place is the beach, where I enjoy walking my dog.

Another good week!

This week we have had a go at writing our own recounts. Some of us found this quite challenging! We then looked at our model text “My Holiday” to see how a recount is written and started to learn it with actions.

In numeracy we have been looking at partitioning numbers and counting on in 10’s and 100’s. We have also been practising our 10x tables our 5x tables and our 2x tables. Today we counted forward and backwards in 100’s.


Next week we will really be concentrating on our 2x tables, you could encourage your children to practice these at home.

Next week in our spelling we will focus on words with the long / ai/ sound spelt with “ey”. Here are the list of words we will be looking at and learning:

Holkham Bubble burst into the new school year.

Posted on Friday, September 11th, 2020

Welcome back Holkham class we have had a fantastic first week. I am impressed by the work ethic of our class and they have made the first week really enjoyable. Keep it up Holkham Class!!

This week we have discussed our worries and let them fly off so that now we can enter school every day with a smile on our faces. We have discussed what we want to achieve in the coming year and we have even grown our own rainbow!

The amazing attitude of the children has enabled us to learn and implement the new “back to school rules” which they have followed to ensure their own safety and the safety of others.

We are looking forward to the coming weeks where we will be travelling from Lands end to John O’Groats as part of our topic and investigating and learning about magnets and looking at sculpture.

In Literacy we will be learning how to write a recount and we are beginning our active maths. We are also looking at different emotions and how to deal with them within our Paths lessons.

P.E. will be every Wednesday and children should come to school dressed in their outdoor P.E. kit on this day.

We are also learning to sign Katy Perry’s Roar a link can be found below if you would like to practise at home.
