Lakes 3

Welcome to Lakes 3 - Bassenthwaite

We are a friendly, happy class of Year 1 and 2 pupils and a team of four adults, Caroline, Carol, Helen and Shannon. 

We have enjoyed exploring our new school and learning in our fabulous new classroom! 

The topic this half term is Journeys.

We are reading 'The train ride' in Literacy and also showing off our brilliant reading and writing skills. We love doing Phonics activities in Lakes 3 too! 

In Numeracy, our main focus is on Time, but we are also learning about numbers, shapes and sorting.

We love Science and Technology afternoon and we are doing lots of different activities relating to our topic. 

We are enjoying exploring transport and journeys in Understanding the world.

Through The Arts, we are creating miniature hot air balloons and amazing seascapes. We have been paper weaving our own little cars and playing along with our choice of instruments to songs about journeys and travelling. 

We are a very active group, so our Physical Development afternoons are a favourite. So far, we have explored the sensory and soft play rooms. We have demonstrated our gymnastic skills in our brilliant new hall and joined in with dancing and movement songs! 

We enjoy Computing and as well as using amazing technology throughout the week in lots of our activities, we have a focussed session each week which is usually topic related but sometimes we learn a new skill or explore a new piece of equipment. 

After a busy week, we always like to end it with a PSHE session and a celebration of achievements.
