Ibn Ali

Welcome to Ibn Alee’s class page!

In Ibn Alee, the children have had a fantastic half term learning all about Ancient Greece, increasing their knowledge across the subjects and producing some amazing homework projects! (please see pictures below) In maths the children have been working hard to understand what numbers really mean and look like in the real world.  This term the children will be studying a new topic about Ancient China and will be taking part in a fantastic, super learning day as an introduction to the new topic, before embarking upon their China topic covered in English, History and Art. In English this term Ibn Alee will be learning about shape poetry and how to make their own shape poems! We will also learn more about the significance of Ramadan as it commences at the end of the month.

The children have taken part in World Book Day this term, with an awareness created of the importance of reading and promoting a love for reading and learning. The children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters and taking part in a fun filled day of activities.

Ibn Alee took part in a spiritual journey in religious education and learnt more about four of the world’s major religions: Judaism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Hinduism. As a result, the children have increased their knowledge of these faiths and the message of respecting all faiths, beliefs and cultures was constantly emphasised.

The whole of Year 3 went on an exciting trip to White Scar Cave as part of their Science unit about Rocks. The children had an amazing time learning outside of the classroom and making memorable experiences.

The children took part in red nose day to raise money for children in need. The day was a great success with the children taking part in a variety of activities and games such as: a cracker eating competition, guess the teacher from the baby photo, cake decorating and beat the teacher games to support this great cause.

Ibn Alee are looking forward to an exciting summer term! Watch this space for more photos.
