Welcome to Rooks Nest Class!
There are 20 children this year in Rooks Nest class, 10 year 3s and 10 year 4s. We are the oldest class in the school which means we get to have lots of responsibility eg assembly monitors, play leaders and buddies to the reception children. Our class teacher is Mrs O’Brien, our teaching assistants are Mrs Burgess and Mrs Leach.
In Rooks Nest, we always try to do our best work in every lesson. We have lots of fun learning and we do like a challenge. In Maths and English, we challenge ourselves using the chilli challenges, warm, hot, scorching and volcanic.
Each half term we have a new topic, this year we will be finding out about the Stone Age, Robots, Active Planet, the Greeks, the Need for Speed and the Rainforest. At the start of every topic we have a Big Bang which gets us excited about the topic ahead. We made our own robots for our Robot topic in the Autumn term.
We are very lucky in this school as we get specialist teachers teaching us PE and Music. At christmas, our class get the lead parts in the nativity and we perform an end of year play in the summer term to our families
Every other year, we go on a residential trip to kingswood where we learn lots of new skills and try new activities such as zip wire and crate stacking. This year, we will be going to Grafham Water and will take part in lots of water activities. Not to mention going out for dinner together afterwards!
We love being in Rooks Nest as our teacher makes learning fun!
