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.

Here are some pictures from our lesson.

 

 

 

In literacy we have made a good start to looking at what a suspense story includes and we have all had a go at our cold task,  writing a suspense story. We have started to learn our focussed text why not read through it together you will find it below. Ask your children to tell you the meaning of some of the words, they should know them as we have looked at the text in class.

 

In numeracy we have continued to look at addition and subtraction as well as estimating what the answers could be using mental arithmetic.

We will continue with this next week why not ask your children to add or subtract two 3 digit numbers. they could start with these.

254+347=              623-142=

Today I have sent home your children’s education city login. To support your children’s learning. we have talked about how to log in please make sure you have a look on Monday for work that has been set to support what we are doing in class.

 

In science we have started a new topic for the half term we will be looking at sound over the next few weeks. This week we looked at how sound is caused by vibrations and we investigated how different  instruments work, a fun but loud lesson. have a look at a few of our investigation pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This term we have a Design and Technology project instead of Art, we had to make the tallest tower we could in groups this week using only 6 pieces of paper. Have a look at how we got on. we were allowed to tear the paper to make ropes.

Have a look at how Ava went home and built her own tower.

In P.E. we have started to look at team games here are a few pictures showing the fun we had.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget to have a look at the homework grid on the top of Holkham page. Choose a task have a go and send in photo’s of work you have completed. I can’t wait to see your pictures.

 

Finally these children have made it onto the over and above tree this week.

Celebrating Holkham’s Learning

Posted on Friday, October 23rd, 2020

This week in Holkham, the children have been putting all they have learnt over the last four weeks into their journey stories. They have tried to incorporate all the punctuation we have been practising alongside using new skills of frontal adverbials. I am going to have a great time next week reading all their stories. Keep up the good work Holkham and if you get bored next week why not write me another story!

 

In maths, we have been continuing with adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers. we have looked at column addition and subtraction we have also solved problems pictorially. In Miss Sayer’s group, we have been focussing on adding 4-digit numbers together!

 

Our Musician of the week, chosen by Ms Berners was: Aronas.

In RE, we looked at the story of the Good Samaritan, watch this clip to remind yourselves:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSfm2xdKau4

We have looked at making magnetic games in science  following our work on magnets. Have a look at a few of them.

 

 

We are still enjoying P.E and swimming sessions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are a few pictures of some of our home learning over the last week. Congratulations to all those children who have produced some fantastic work!
