Year 3&4 Coniston Water

The Coniston Crew

Hello from CONISTON, a class of Year 3 and 4 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 and Mrs. Olenjik works with us each morning helping us and supporting us in our learning.  Mrs. Murray is our teacher every Wednesday afternoon.


Throughout the year, we will be developing skills to become lifelong, powerful learners. We will be using the Secrets of Success (SoS)to guide us as well as the 5 B’s – a strategy we use when we become stuck in our learning to encourage our independence.

Brain – Board – Book- Buddy –Boss!



Risk takers  





We will 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, Philosophizing 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.  All homework for the week is set on a Friday and we have a full week to complete the tasks.  


Sumdog, White Rose Maths app and TTRS are fun ways to keep our Maths skills sharp. In Maths lessons, we are developing a mastery approach in our learning, promoting enquiring minds to gain a deep understanding of mathematical concepts. We work in separate year groups for our daily Maths lesson. The Year 3 will work with Mrs. Ross and Mrs. Cookson and Year 4 with Mrs. Greenwood. When we are writers, we study and model great writing techniques from many famous and popular authors.


We look forward to sharing our work on FROG in the ‘proud pieces’ section.

In Coniston we say, Kids who Read Succeed! As well as our whole class text we are expected to read individual books most nights. We STRIVE FOR 5 each week as we know regular reading is so important.


We are looking forward to the year ahead in Coniston class, we will work together to create a great learning atmosphere. Our class council representatives are, Kian and Daniel along with our shadow representatives, Emily and Barkley will be working as hard as they can to help make life at North Lakes a fun yet challenging experience where we can all succeed.


Many thanks for reading
