Green Class

Green Class Teaching Team

Welcome to Green Class' Page. I'm Mr Lawrence and I teach Green Class. I am an avid sports fan - particularly football (West Ham) and American football (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) - and I own a three-legged Labrador, who is my pride and joy - Nemo. My favourite lesson to teach is PE as I enjoy challenging children to explore different techniques and assess which works best. I have been at Offham and in Green Class since November and I am absolutely loving every minute of teaching the class.

 

Working alongside me in Green Class are Mrs Smith, Miss Bartlett and Mrs Mullane. As a class team, we enjoy learning new things - just like the children - and like exploring topics along with the class. We particularly love how enthusiastic and excited to learn Green Class always are, which makes lessons great fun to teach.

 

This Term's Learning

Term 5, 2017-2018

 

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter!

 

Topics

In Green Class this term, we are beginning to study the Ancient Greeks. We will be trying to link the topic in throughout the curriculum (where possible) so to create fun and engaging lessons.

Maths

Fractions; Time; Addition; Subtraction; and Properties of Shape.

Science

PE

Swimming and Cricket

 

PE Kits

Please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school at all times. At the very least, they should have a t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls in school. We will also be going swimming every Tuesday morning so please ensure that your child has a swimming kit on this day.

 

Spellings

Each Friday, your child will be given weekly spellings. These will be tested on Friday morning and will include statutory words (that may include a maths term) and other words from a spelling pattern.

 

Times tables

We will be doing times table challenges every Wednesday. Times tables are extremely important in their numeracy and are linked to lots of topics in the curriculum e.g. division, fractions. Please encourage your child to practise the times table they are being tested on at home.

 

Homework

We will continue to alternate English and Maths every Friday. Please encourage your children to complete this work as independently as possible. Homework is usually based on what we have been learning in class and I will explain to children methods and expectations when the work is set each week. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kent Life Trip - Stone Age

We were extremely lucky to visit Kent Life for a Stone Age Day on Friday 20th April - a trip that was previously snowed off! The weather could not have been more different. In the scorching April heat, Green Class had the opportunity to take part in a number of workshops; some of the favourites being 'Cave Painting' 'Grinding Grain' and meeting Claw (a real Stone Age man), who gave them all their own individual Stone Age names.
