Welcome to Jeffers' Class Page. Our class teacher is Miss Clark.
Did you know we are called Jeffers Class after the author Oliver Jeffers? We have really enjoyed reading some of his books in class including 'The Day the Crayons Quit', 'Lost and Found' and 'Up and Down.'
Here you can enjoy looking at photos of our learning and access websites that can help to enhance the children's learning further.
In Jeffers Class we have been doing so many things for Science Week. The week began with a competition. We worked together to create model reptiles. Using paper and glue stick was a bit difficult at first but we persevered and then came up with some fantastic designs. What a creative bunch of reptiles they were!
On the second day of Science Week Miss Clark set us a challenge of creating a circuit. We explored the parts of a circuit and raced to see who could build a working circuit first. We then learnt all about conducting materials and how electricity works.
Our favourite experiment was working outside to create birds nests. We planned which materials we wanted to use and why.
The week finished by testing out materials for a space nappy. When astronauts are in space they sometimes have to go out on missions for long periods of time. We had to think about which materials would be the most absorbent/ waterproof and reason about which we would want for a nappy.
Multiplications and arrays
During our Maths lessons we have been focussing on multiplication. We have been on hunts for arrays to spot multiplication facts in the classroom. Miss Clark showed us how to use arrays to help with our multiplication number sentences. We have been learning lots about how to record this and solve problems using the correct symbols. We matched cards with arrays on to the correct number sentence during a fun game of go fish.
We wrote our times table facts in chalk as a hopscotch. Using our knowledge of times tables we recalled the answers as we hopped across.
We have been learning about the Easter story this half term. We designed and made pop up Easter cards. Using clay we created crosses. We were taught different techniques to create swirls and spring time patterns. After we had learnt the story we made bread and spoke about it's symbolism. The bread was super tasty and we loved cooking it.
The most exciting bit about Easter was our Easter assembly. Lots of us acted out the parts of the Easter story and we got to show off everything we had been making.
Our 2017 Ofsted inspection commented - that we still provide good quality education & a stimulating & caring environment. Individual needs are well met & children quickly grow in confidence. There is a positive culture for safeguarding & pupils said that they feel happy & settled in school.
"I am amazing. Together we are magnificent!"
