Welcome to Paua Shell Class!
Paua Shell Class Weekly News
Dear Paua Class & Parents,
A goodbye from Mrs B. I have honestly loved every minute of working with your wonderful children, they really are a lovely class who always try their best and genuinely care and look out for one another. It has been my absolute pleasure to work with them. I will miss them all so very much and have cried a few (quite a lot!) of tears leaving them.
Thank you all for your messages and gifts, they really are appreciated.
I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and for a better 2021!
I will see you on the beach.
Love Mrs Brousse x
As well as working hard on our learning, we have begun gearing up for Christmas this week kicked off by the arrival of Elvi our class elf who has been keeping us amused with his daily antics. We had a lovely Christmassy afternoon after our Christmas lunch making decorations. We had lots of fun and are really proud of our creations.
For Remembrance Day we read a famous poem called, In Flanders Fields. We then decorated the poem with poppies using watercolours. We have them proudly on display in our classroom. In Maths we have continued learning more about shapes, moving on to symmetry. We have enjoyed transposing all sorts of shapes and patterns, even robots! In Science we have continued our topic on Sound by learning about the inner workings of our ears.
A fun first week back for Paua 4. We have been learning all about shapes in Maths and reading the Sound Collector poem in English and then writing our own versions. In Art we used clay to make poppies which we will glaze next week.
In Art we used oil pastels, charcoal and tissue paper to create our own Remembrance pictures. They are being submitted for a C2C train competition.
This week in Science we have continued our topic on Electricity by investigating how switches work and all of the different types. We have also started to fill up our class display boards with our History work on the Iron Age.
This week in Maths we are learning to compare 4 digit numbers. We also did our first TTR’s test.
A busy week in Paua this week, continuing our Iron Man work in English and Place Value and Roman Numerals in Maths. In Science we had the opportunity to make our own circuits which was great fun.

This week in English we have continued reading The Iron Man. We headed outside to have a ‘conscience alley’ to discuss for and against arguments for whether Hogarth should trap the Iron Man.
In Art we used chalk and charcoal to create our own versions of The Iron Man.
What a great first day back in Paua 4!
“It`s so lovely to see all our friends again after so long.”
To complement our new Science topic, Electricity. This week in our dance lesson, after our warm-up, created our own routines in small groups to show how electrical circuits work.
