Fistral is a mixed Year 3 & Year 4 Class and the class teachers are Mrs Laura Murgatroyd (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Tracey Walsh (Thursday and Friday). We have lots of help in the classroom and the teaching assistants are Ms Michaela Robins and Mrs Sally Pascoe.
We are a very friendly team and are happy to speak to parents about any queries or concerns. If you wish to contact one of us directly you can do this on Seesaw.
Our topics range from 'What Makes Us Special' to 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' to 'Mermaids and Miners.'
Children have the opportunity to explore topics through themes and we make our topic stretch across the whole curriculum to fully emerge the children into a theme. We read classic books like Charlotte's Web and Stig of the Dump and explore the wonderful world of Roald Dahl too. We read and tell poems, stories and non-fiction texts: Fistral class are excellent story tellers using actions and text maps!
As mathematicians we practise and secure our understanding of Place Value to build upon throughout the year which supports our learning in calculations, fractions, time and beyond!
We have opportunities to go on trips, learn musical instruments, work with local artists and develop a variety of skills through topic-based learning!
