Class Teacher: Craig Mallis
Welcome to Beacon Class, one of our Key Stage 3 classes here at Littlegreen Academy.
Autumn Term 2023
Beacon class have had a fantastic start to the new academic year!
The pupils have done well, reintegrating into lessons and getting used to the routines of the school day again. This isn't always an easy task for our young leaners, but with consistency and perseverance, they have been rising to the challenge.
As the weather turns a little colder and the evenings gradually draw in, our minds begin to turn to Halloween and Christmas. Beacon class have been particularly hardworking, already enjoying the Harvest Festival and now focusing their efforts on the spirit of Halloween. We are looking forward to decorating our classroom and creating our own Halloween themed games!
Spring Term 2024
Beacon class have had an industrious start to the new year, making solid headway with their ‘step-up to English’ coursework. It can be very challenging being presented with such a daunting task; however, the pupils have risen to the occasion.
In Maths, we have been exploring different types of scales and how to use them. This can also be very tricky when converting between units of measurement, but the pupils have really persevered.
In other news, despite the freezing weather, Beacon class have been very courageous, still very much enjoying their Forrest School lessons, getting out into the woods and making the most of the tools and tasks available to them.
I would like to say a very special thank you to our Teaching Assistant, Luke. Since joining, he has done a wonderful job of uniting the class with his shared passion of all things Anime. The pupils really appreciate you and so do I.
Another special shoutout must go out to Dominika, who has been doing sterling work, running interventions within the class team.
Learning is not always plain sailing, however with a bit of ambition, courage, perseverance, acceptance and kindness, we are sure to all reach our goals in the end.
