3AM 2019 - 2020

Mrs Meadows

3AM have settled very well at Greenbank School. They soon got to learn the new routines and have started to make new friends. At break times, they have enjoyed going to the Outdoor Gym together and at lunch times, they have been playing dodgeball.

3AM have had a very positive start to their academic studies and have enjoyed meeting their new teachers in a wide range of subjects.




In English, the focus has been on writing about themselves and about the topic of ‘New Beginnings’. They have had fun in maths with games and activities relating to the timetables, as well as learning about number ordering.

In ICT, they have used computer skills to complete a project about “Favourite Animals”. As part of ‘Learning outside the Classroom’, they have made bird feeders for a topic about birds about ‘Bird’, which has included bird migration. This will count towards their John Muir award.  

In Art, the focus has been on learning about colour and texture and they have created some amazing monoprint designs.

In Geography, they have been learning about map skills and they have used compasses for finding directions.

Science has been a popular subject and they have had fun making paper planes and parachutes to learn about forces and air resistance.

In P.E, the students have enjoyed taking part in Yoga in addition to circuit training.

The topic in R.E has been Hinduism, which has included designing their own Hindu god.

As an induction to French the students have been learning to say simple phrases as well as counting and colours.

3am  have really enjoyed taking part in music therapy sessions where they have been playing the drums, keyboard and electric guitar and meeting our therapy dogs Rupert Bear and Teddy.




For educational visits they have enjoyed visiting the local park and going to the Café.

All students have been working very hard and have all gained Gold Star in their first few weeks in school. Their highlight of the week has been to choose their rewards on a Friday, the most popular choices being switch club, Wii club, Lego club and ICT.

Well done 3AM – A VERY POSITIVE START AT Greenbank School!
