Ullswater - Y3

We are a class of Year 3 pupils who enjoy learning. We have had a successful start to the new school year; already our classroom is looking bright and exciting. Our class teacher is Mrs Greenwood. Mrs Clark works with Ullswater every Wednesday afternoon and most Thursdays. Ullswater is part of Bubble B this year working closely with Buttermere in these challenging and different times.  Our teachers make our learning fun and enjoyable.  Mrs Cookson, Mrs K Clarke, Miss McGuinness and Mrs Osborne are also around in Bubble B, helping us learn and achieve our best.


Throughout the year, we are aiming to build our learning power so we will often hear our teachers talking about ‘learning muscles’ and offering us a range of strategies we can use to become lifelong, powerful learners. We follow the 5 B’s – a strategy we use when we might become stuck in our learning. Brain – Board – Book- Buddy –Boss!


In Ullswater we work hard in our learning to develop the 5Rs -Relationships, Resilience, Resourcefulness, Reflecting and Risk taking.  All skills are important ingredients to success in our learning at North Lakes School. We are enquirers too, Philosophising and constantly asking questions about many aspects of our learning and life.  There is never a quiet moment in our classroom! We will also be sharing our learning on our online platform site FROG – watch out for our proud pieces and points of interest on our timeline.


To complement our learning at school we have a homework schedule to keep ourselves organised.  All homework assignments are sent on a Friday and we have one week to compete the tasks. Sumdog is a fun way to keep our maths skills sharp. In lessons, we are developing a mastery approach in our maths learning, promoting enquiring minds to gain a deep understanding of mathematical concepts. When we are writers, we look and model great techniques from many famous and popular authors. We look forward to sharing our work on FROG in the ‘proud pieces’ section.


We are looking forward to the year ahead in Ullswater class, we will work together to create a great learning atmosphere. Our class councillors, Will and Erica along with our  shadow councillors, Baxter and Roxy will be working as hard as they can to help make life at North Lakes a fun and challenging experience.
