Charlton Class is a year 3 class taught by Mr Overy. Helping Mr Overy, Monday to Friday we have the wonderful Mrs Steel. In Charlton Class we always try our best, we never give up and we always learn from our mistakes. Please note that outdoor P.E will be on Mondays and indoor P.E will be on Tuesdays, please ensure your child has appropriate kit to participate in these lessons. All children are expected to read at home frequently and to complete their reading records every day. Homework is sent out each Friday and is expected in on the following Thursday.
This year in Charlton Class, there will be a strive for excellence in Maths. We have adapted a forward thinking, mastery approach known as Maths No Problem where reasoning and questioning is central to our learning. We believe that in order to embed mathematical understanding and logic we must progress through three key stages of learning; concrete, pictorial and abstract. Some of our learners will require concrete resources such as counters or beaded strings in order to problem solve. Some of our other learners may be able to draw pictorial representations of these resources on whiteboards. Some of our learners may be able to problem solve using abstract methods such as written methods. Our aim in Charlton Class is to move freely between these stages, starting from concrete and working towards abstract.We will also complete daily number bond & multiplication challenges to improve our understanding of numbers. Mr Overy also believes that if we can use and apply the four operations; add, subtract, multiply and divide then we can learn how to solve most problems.
