Welcome to Ginkgo Class!
Miss Katie Jackson Mrs Lynne Woolaston
Class Teacher Teaching Assistant
As we start a new academic year, we warmly welcome you to Ginkgo Class which is made up of 27 Year 3 Children!
Here in Ginkgo we want our children to be the best that they can possibly be. We have a strong commitment to providing a broad, balanced creative curriculum full of inspirational topics in a vibrant setting.
As we start the year we begin by exploring our local area and answering the key question 'How has Langford changed over time?'
The curriculum is all the planned activities which we organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the curriculum guarantees we as a school provide to develop the independence and responsibility of all of our pupils. We ensure that all children have a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. We aim to teach our pupils how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their full potential.
In Ginkgo, we also have 'busy time' as an extension to our learning. Busy time allows the children to extend what they have learnt and challenge themselves. Each activity is carefully selected to align to what the children are learning, challenge and allow the children to involve themselves in a practical and immersive activity. Busy time also develops the children's independence skills by encouraging them to actively take ownership in their learning.
