Whale class

Class information 

Whale class is the lower key stage 2 class at Cambois Primary School. We are taught by Miss Jackson and supported by Mrs Blamire.

In a morning we have a phonic/spelling lesson followed by a maths and literacy lesson each day. We follow a creative curriculum in the afternoon, including Commando Joe's and PSHCE. 

 

Commando Joes has recently been introduced into our school for this new school year. We were the first class to open the Commando Joes box and look at all the fantastic equipment. We have had a brilliant half term completing the missions of Leif Erikson on a Friday afternoon and can't wait to continue! 

We have 4 new school council reps for this year. Children put themselves forward for being school council reps and then our class voted for who they would like to see as their class reps through several democratic votes! 
Our year 3 reps are 
Jessica Rycroft and Button Hayes 
Our year 4 reps are
Avia Hart and McKenzie O'Brien 
We were very lucky to have author Mallory Smith come into school and read her lovely story 'Maloula' to our class along with Year 1/2. After she left we wrote her a letter thanking her for coming in and telling her our favourite part of the story. She also told us how she came up with the name 'Maloula' and we changed our names into mermaid and mermen names too!
We spent some time making decorations for our school Halloween disco. We had to follow a set of instructions and collect the correct materials that we needed to make our spooky windsocks. Look at how brilliant they turned out! 
During our literacy lessons in this half term we spent time reading the book 'The Midnight Fox' by Betsy Bryars. As part of this unit we wrote a persuasive letter in the role of the main character Tom to his Uncle Fred to stop him from Fox hunting. To help us prepare us for this we had a class debate where half of us were for Fox hunting and half of us were against. Both sides had some fantastic reasons and some of us got very involved in the debate!
