    Edward Jenner

    Posted by Ms S Tough
    This week, the children in Year 3 have been learning about the incredible life and work of Edward Jenner. Some special visitors from the Jenner Museum came to our school on Monday to share some fascinating information with us about Jenner's life. The children have been reflecting on what they found out, and have been writing some fantastic diary recounts from the perspective of Jenner himself. Year 3 have been working hard this week to improve their written work even further, by using noun phrases to add more description in their writing! Way to go, Year 3!

    Stone Age feasts!

    Posted by Ms S Tough
    As part of their topic learning, the children have been looking at non-fiction texts to gather information about the types of foods Stone Age people ate long ago. They have investigated how the Stone Age people found their food: through hunting and gathering. Working together, the children sorted foods into different groups and looked at different sources to learn about how food was traditionally prepared and cooked.

    Welcome Back!

    Posted by Ms S Tough
    Welcome back everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. The children have settled back into school life extremely quickly and have really impressed me with their kindness towards one another, along with their attitude to learning this week. They have been extremely helpful and have done a brilliant job at welcoming me into their class. We have a new reward system in place, which children have been very enthusiastic about, as they can win house points and raffle tickets to enter into a weekly prize draw each week. They can earn their rewards by demonstrating our school values: perseverance, respect, creativity, trust, responsibility and forgiveness! Please note that the newTopic Web is now available on our class page, so you can see what the children will be learning about this Spring. Homework will be issued every Tuesday from next week. Please ensure that your child hands their homework book in by the following Monday at the very latest. To support your child at home, please continue to practice times tables with them as this is an integral part of our learning this term. All children have been issued with a new Reading Record this term. Please ensure that your child brings this in to school every day, along with their reading books. We encourage you to write comments in your child’s record each week if possible. Finally, please ensure that your child has the full P.E. kit in school for both indoor and outdoor activities. As the weather is colder this time of year, they need appropriate P.E. clothes for outdoor activities. Next week, we will be sharing more information about the learning that is going on in the class! More information to follow…! Have a lovely weekend. Ms Tough

    23rd November 2018

    Posted by Mr Administrator
    Year 3 children have settled and adapted well to the change in Class teacher. We are enjoying lots of fun learning whilst we get to know each other. I find the children a lovely, lively and happy class, eager to learn in different ways. This week, we have been reinforcing our Timetables knowledge through mental challenges, quizzes and games. This also aims to support learning different methods of Division. In Literacy, we are enjoying familiarising ourselves with different types of poems so we can begin to write our own for our Christmas topic. We are also polishing up our reading and comprehension skills. We will be doing more Grammar and vocabulary work too. Today, we discussed our feelings about light and darkness by focussing on the light of candles. This will lead up to learning about the symbolism of Light and Christmas for R.E.

    Choose Respect

    Posted by Mr C Clarke
    This week is 'Anti-Bullying Week'. As a school we have been encouraging the children to think about "30 random acts of kindness" and how our choices can impact others. Mrs Lanceley and Mrs Williams led the school in a very thought provoking assembly this week and we have agreed to 'choose respect'.

    Today, the children have put together a sequence of all the movements they've learned over the last few weeks. From balances, travelling across the mat to holding positions they have been amazing.
