Welcome to Curzon's Chameleons
We are a very special class because we have two teachers – Mrs Curzon and Mrs McLean. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Pickering.
Our class room is a busy, fun place where creativity is encouraged and where ‘having a go’ is the most important thing of all. Our class room is right at the heart of the school, which means we can keep an eye on everybody!
This year, our class are trialling Learning Logs. These are personalised books that document our learning throughout the year. They are given out each week on a Thursday and we are encouraged to be as creative as possible when completing them, by writing, drawing and collaging to explain, consolidate and expand upon what we have been learning each week. We hand them in the following Wednesday and have ‘peer presentations’ where we share our Learning Logs with each other and celebrate excellent work.
Sometimes we will have Talking Homework, where we are asked to talk to people at home before approaching an independent piece of writing. We will also have spellings to learn at home.
We also have what we refer to as "unwritten homework" this is because we should be doing it all the time. "Unwritten homework" includes: working on targets, learning our times tables and reading at least 3 times a week with an adult. There are numerous websites to help us with practising our targets especially www.conkermaths.org for Numeracy.
