Welcome to Cedar Class!
Cedar Class is a Year 3 class with 30 children currently, most of whom have transitioned from St Nicholas Infant School and Foundation Stage Unit. We have 17 boys and 13 girls. We have a dedicated team of staff - Mrs Giles, (class teacher) Ms Coverdale, (teaching assistant) Mrs McConnell, (teaching assistant) and Mrs Benny (teaching assistant). We thrive on having fun and are very much looking forward to the year ahead!
Our Project this Term
In RE, Cedar Class were exploring the Nativity story in preparation for the performance in St Mary’s Church at Christmas time. Using role play, they explored the thoughts, feelings and reactions as Angel Gabriel explained to Mary that she was going to have a baby called Jesus who would be Christs’ son. How would you explain it to her if you were Angel Gabriel? How would Mary really have reacted?
In the science topic of ‘Light’, Cedar Class have been experimenting to discover the most reflective materials. They tested different materials with shining torches to see how much light was reflected back onto a white piece of paper surrounding the torch. The more light on the paper, the more reflective the material was. They also learned about the retro-reflective materials used in road signs and ‘hi vis’ safety gear. Keep an eye out for other retro-reflective equipment and clothing! Maybe your coat has retro-reflective strips in it so you can be seen easily in the dark and kept safe!
