Interesting facts about Bank Station
Bank and Monument are actually interlinked underground stations named after the nearby London landmarks of the Bank of England and the Monument to the Great Fire of London. It not only appears on the central line but serves the Northern, Waterloo & City lines as well as the DLR.
You might get easily lost at this station with no less than 12 exits, that’s more than any other London station! Another reason to get lost at Bank is the station’s DLR concourse which is a whopping 41.4 meters underground, the city’s deepest station below street level!
Class teacher and LSA
Hello, I’m Miss C Gooding. I am so pleased to be teaching Bank this year! I cannot wait for us to embark on all of our learning we will complete this year. We have lots of exciting themes to make our learning as exciting and enjoyable as possible.
I particularly like teaching Science as I love investigating and finding out information from observations, I am hoping we will be carrying out lots of experiments this year.
In my spare time I thoroughly enjoy baking lots of different treats, especially American bakery goods, but I also enjoy doing exercise, going on lots of walks and looking after my guinea pig Boris.
I am also really looking forward to us all getting to work with Miss Humphries. Most of the children have already been lucky enough to have her supporting their learning and know how amazing she is!
Miss Humphries - Hello! I'm Miss Humphries and I will be supporting Miss C Gooding in Year 3 this year.
I really enjoy supporting the children with their learning and watching them grow and succeed and hope I can do just that this year.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my son. We particularly like sharing stories together, playing Lego and having fun on days out, one of our favourite places to go is the Zoo!
This term, we will be adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers using the formal written methods. This means we ned to learn place value up to 1000, so counting in our 100s and 50s will be very important. We will learn to use estimation and inverse operations to check the answers to our calculations. We will be solving number and practical problems using increasingly large numbers and representing our answers using lots of different methods.
We will be using the theme heroes and villains with lots of our English work, creating missing posters, reports, commentaries and sequencing events. We will cover adverbs and adverbial phrases expressing time and place, work on our vocabulary so that we can use more exciting and interesting verbs and adjectives as well as using organisational devices such as subheadings and bullet points to present information.
This term we explore magnetism as well as animals including humans. This will involve investigatory skills. working on careful observations as well as prediction and analysing our results.
Our focus this term is PSHE. We will be looking at how to respect ourselves as well as others. We will also look at our place in the community and how to stay safe online and in everyday situations. This will involve a lot of discussion which means using our oracy skills.
It is really important to practice your spellings and times tables at home as well as during learning time in school, Ed Shed is a great place to be able to practice your spelling through activities whilst at home. This year we will be focusing on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Try not only learning these in order but backwards and in a random order to thoroughly test your knowledge!
Although spellings will not be tested every week via a formal end of week test, they will be taught on a daily basis and formatively assessed through their work. Please still take time to learn spellings with your child to reinforce the learning taking place in school.
