Mrs Marshall


I have been teaching at Greyfriars since 2004 and am very proud of being part of the Greyfriars team. Also I am one of the school’s Assistant Head Teachers. I currently teach year 6’s and I am in charge of literacy throughout the school. In Winterton class we try to make the most of every learning opportunity and strive to do our best. Outside of school I enjoy reading, going to the cinema and spending time with my family!

 

Winterton bubble’s first full week.

Posted on Friday, September 18th, 2020

Good afternoon everyone!

Well, we have finished our first full week and we have been very busy! We began the week by completing some PiXL assessments to show some areas of work we might need a little support with over the next few weeks. Everyone worked really hard on these and I will be feeding back to individual children on how they managed and looking at some possible support to cover things you may have forgotten over the lockdown.  We are also in the middle of producing ‘All About Me’ cubes which we will display in the classroom. In addition we have written our ‘Superhero Identities’ – all top secret of course! We will make a ‘Winterton Superheroes’ book for us all to look at.

We have been completing Power Maths units every day, where we are looking at number and place value. I’m so pleased with the progress that I have seen so far – keep it up Winterton! Today we have written a class poem titled ‘Behind the magical door I saw …’ to start our Talk for Writing unit, and we will be writing it up in our books next week. I was amazed by the wonderful ideas Winterton bubble had. We have begun to study ‘Earth and Space’ in science and spent the lesson this week looking at evidence for the Earth being flat and the Earth being spherical to discuss the concept of evidence in science. In music we listened to some wonderful music played entirely using body percussion that sounded just like a storm in a rain forest! We were all amazed that the human body could produce such sounds. We have had our first P.E lesson with Mr. Collison which was fun (well done everyone for remembering to come to school in your P.E. kit); and some of us had our first swimming lesson in year 6. If you didn’t swim this week, remember your group will be next week – bring your swimming kit on Wednesday.

I am really sorry that I did not get time to take a photo of our display that I promised last week, but I will try hard to get it for next Friday’s blog.

I look forward to seeing the homework you have chosen to do this afternoon. Remember you can email me a photo of your work, or bring it in on Monday. I will make sure I sanitise my hands before I look at it!

Have a lovely weekend and make sure you rest ready for another busy week next week!

Take care and keep safe

Welcome back Winterton bubble!

Posted on Friday, September 11th, 2020

Hello Everyone

… and welcome back to the new school year. We have made a good start to the term, doing lots of Phoenix Rising work, including talking about any worries we may have and also all the things we are grateful for.

We have spent this morning thinking about our gratitude jar: the things that are the most important to us being golf balls that have to go in the jar first; then pebbles, things that are important but not so much as the golf balls; and finally sand, things that we appreciate but we could survive without them. This made a very interesting discussion!

Then we moved onto designing ‘The Most Desirable Pencil Case in the World’. This needs to be continued this afternoon. Please can you send, via my email, a photo of your work so I can marvel at it, and I know you have completed it.

Earlier on this week we did some work on the book ‘The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse’ by Charlie Mackesy. This is a wonderful book and we have produced some work about the advice you can give yourself to help with your journey this year. Look for a photo of the display next Friday.

Here are some photos of Winterton bubble room so you can see what we do.

This is our Gratitude Tree with a rainbow behind it. We all coloured in part of the rainbow and then put them all together so everyone has contributed.

This is our class library. We are able to read books from here so long as we sanitise our hands before and after we touch them.

Here is where we sanitise our hands whenever we come into the classroom, and here:

… is where we wash our hands every time we leave the classroom .

This is our self registration wall. When we come into school we move our names from the ‘we are away today’ to the ‘I am in school today’ column.

And this is where our lunch boxes are kept.

I hope you enjoyed looking at our bubble room, and you can see what your child’s environment looks like.

Next week I will share what we will be doing in class. If you need to know anything about school or our class, then look at the different tags on the website.

Have a good weekend and will see you all on Monday.
