The children in Elder Class are in our Year 3 Class.
The class teacher is Mrs Smith and they are also supported by Mrs Thomas.
We are Elder class at Chesterton Primary school. In Elder class we value everyone and ensure that our learning is at our highest potential. We try our best to enable everyone to learn and succeed in all areas of learning. We are a lovely class of 30 and we enjoy supporting our friends and have a great team ethos in our learning environment. Although we work very hard there is always laughter, smiles are care shown in our classroom!
The learning in Year 3 is organized in a range of ways including group work, independent learning and focused activities. The children access challenge baskets in all areas of learning at any time in the day and then complete focused or independent activities for Maths and English depending on their preferred choice. All lessons are taught with a whole class input which then leads into the focused activities which are differentiated by 3 levels of challenge. The children are able to choose their preferred challenge independently and are then supported through them. In year 3 we guide our learning through the children's interests. We do this thorough a channel of a Big Question. accessing the learning in this form allows the children to become engrossed and engaged into the topic and encourages them to ask further questions to deeper their knowledge.
