Welcome to Blue Class!
We are a mixed class of Year 3 and 4 pupils.
In Blue Class we enjoy learning, being creative and working together.
 

Our current topic this term is the multi-cultural, diverse world of
Around the World

Which country has the largest area in the world?

How could you describe the traditional music of Australia?

If you could live in another country, where would you live? Why?
 

This half term, in Literacy,  the children will be looking at how to choose appropriate questions, writing simple biographies and presentations.

In Numeracy, we will be looking at 2D shapes and their symmetry, how to find perimeter and area and calculating with money.

We LOVE Big Maths in Blue Class!
Help your child level up by practising addition facts to 20, or times tables at home.

We complete our BEAT THAT tests on Fridays.

Look here for a game they use in class:

Previous Work

In Autumn term ICT we adapted and made our own code to make Maths games!

Try them out below and have a go at creating your own at home: https://scratch.mit.edu/

       

In Spring Term we studied The Victorian Era

We asked questions like; what inventions were made in the Victorian era?

What subjects would children learn in school when Queen Victoria reigned?

In class the children had a Victorian Classroom experience - ask Brayden about the dunce's hat or Madison if she liked wearing the finger stocks! It was hard to be in a strict Victorian classroom but some pupils did like it!

At the start of summer term we studied Crime Scenes

What evidence do you need to collect at a crime scene?

How do the police catch the criminals?

The children were enthusiastic investigating officers as we explored questioning strategies and reporting evidence in a terrible iPad robbery. After looking at different evidence and linking foot size to height in a Science investigation, the class decided on Mrs Harris of Silver Class as our culprit!

The CCTV image was the final proof to prove her guilt.
