Welcome to KS3HW
Teaching Staff: Heather, Liz and Fran
In KS3HW we are a mixed class of Year 8 and Year 9 students who spend our pastoral time in the upstairs KS3 department. Our classroom environment is tailored to meet our needs and interests with different opportunities for class discussions, group working and individual working.
We have an exciting timetable and spend part of our lesson time with pastoral staff (for English, Maths, PSHE, Citizenship, MFL and Topic) and part with specialist teachers (for Art, Computing, DT, Drama, Food Technology, Music, PE and Science). We are a class of bright, young students so our teachers ensure that we have appropriate challenge and support.
The Autumn term is important as it allows us to get to know each other, our new teaching staff and allows us to continue following the skills and attitudes of St Martins.
In terms of learning, we have already made an excellent start! In English we are exploring Gothic Literature. We have begun to analyze Gothic settings, themes and characters. This will prepare us when we create our own Gothic characters, settings and eventually a story …
In Maths we have been developing our knowledge of number and place value. We have been challenging ourselves and explaining our mathematical thinking.
Overall we are having a fabulous time so far in KS3HW and we are looking to the rest of the school year.
