Production Costume update - Year 3 Boys


Sorry for the confusion with the costume letters. 

Just to clarify, ALL Year 3 Boys are evacuees (this also is the same as 'children belonging to adults') in the first half!

Dressed as boys - not in floral dresses! Please google for ideas but school shorts are a good start! 

Second half - they are still soldiers! 

Any questions, just ask

Wow! What a week!

It was lovely to return from PGL to happy children, excited to tell me about their work! I'm glad they enjoyed the wartime baking! This has extended the children's learning about WW2 to fit with our KS2 production!

Summer 1, Week 5

Where has this week gone!? 

Well done Class 4, excellent learning again. 

In Maths, we have learnt and recapped symmtery and reflection. We also had great fun making tangrams from triangles and squares! I wonder what other shapes you could create at home?

In English, we wrote a letter to Abdul Kazam about our fantastic visit to The Place Between - fantastic language used and brilliant structure with paragraphs. 

In Science, we classified different leaves we found on the playground and in Art we finished off our paintings of Tutankhamun's burial mask!

Today we had sports day - don't forget your coloured top for next wednesday.

Have a love weekend

Miss Gale

Important Reminders:

  • Please ensure children have a tracksuit in their kit still - this could be a school fleece. It can be a bit cold at this time of year but we still try to go up the field for PE.
  • Don't forget a coloured top for PE. Information about your child's house colour came out this weeek with the newsletter.

Summer 1, Week 3

Another fab week Class 4!

In English, we have really tried to use our imagination to take us to 'The Place Between' based on our book. The children worked really hard to think of new, creative words. I have loved reading their writing, it's been a joy to mark!

In Maths, we have rounded off our topic on time. Class 4 are excellent! Please do practise telling the time at home, little and often will really make it stick!

In Science, we created classficiation keys with sweets! It was a lot of fun.

Summer Week 2

Well done Class 4, for a very hard working week!

We’ve worked on ‘show don’t tell’ techniques in English, everyone really is challenging themselves with showing emotions and varied word choices. We are enjoying our book ‘Leon and the Place Between’.

In Maths we are learning and practising different ‘time’. How many days in a year, weeks and months. We are converting between the two. We have also looked at seconds and minutes. I wonder if any of Class 4 can explain to their adults how leap years’ work?

In RE we began learning about Sikhism, we are really interested to find out more.

On Monday we went swimming! Lots of fun had by all and I was really pleased to see the children listening carefully and quietly to their instructors.

Have a lovely weekend - enjoy the bank holiday!

Well done Class 4, we have come back with a bang! 

Everyone has worked really hard this week, especially in maths! We have been looking at scaling, it is super tricky and we have really tested our brains. Today we completed an investigation with a recipe and scaled it down - I was so impressed with resillience during this lesson and the children should be very proud of themselves.

Well where has that week gone! Class 4 have really enjoyed the Arts Days this week! They have learnt and experiences lots about the Caribbean. We also did some reasoning and problem solving in Maths thinking about changing numbers and using inverse operations. In English, we started to write an explanation text about how chocolate is made! This was very exciting to learn about the whole process and link it to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We also spent some of our afternoons looking at other aspects of Caribbean culture - it’s been a great week! Thank you to those who have donated some extra jars for our DT next week. Enjoy the snow!

Spring Week 3

Well done Class 4, another hard working week!

In English we have written poems about a Roald Dahl Character and made sure it included rhyming couplets, we did a brilliant job at structure and it was quite tricky to find words that rhymed! Lots of perseverance and editing needed.

In Maths we have finished off learning about 3D shapes and we made some nets of 3d aliens! We then have recapped learning of addition with column method, year 4s even used decimals!

In science we have set up and investigation of how sugary drinks can affect our teeth - ask the children what we have done to find out!

In RE we have done some deep thinking about the Teleological Argument - I was blown away by how to children learnt some much about this and could now explain it probably better than me!

Arts days next week! How exciting.

Also, if anyone has any glass jars that could be donated for our Art project later on in the term, that would be fab! 

Have a lovely weekend

Autumn Class 4 week 9 and 10

We’ve had a very busy two weeks back at school! It has been filled with learning about WW1. The children have been very keen to learn about this whilst also sharing what they already know -including family history! We were very lucky to have a drama production called Lest We Forget on Tuesday morning, the children thoroughly enjoyed this. It consolidated their learning and deepened their awareness of what it would have been like for the people of Britain in WW1.

Around this, we have had assessment week. They have responded really well to the assessments and have really shown me what they know! Impressive stuff!

In English, we’ve moved onto our new topic around a short film called Home Sweet Home. The children have been extending their writing with better description and better word choices.

In Maths, we have done lots of reasoning and problem solving around fraction and proportions. We used the bar model for this which was knew to the children and a bit tricky to start with!

Brilliant two weeks all round!

Have a lovely weekend
