Summer 1 Week 4

We've had a busy week in Class 3. The Year 2s completed two Reading and Maths SATS papers this week while the Year 3s took part in other activities within the school. 

Our afternoon lessons carried on as usual. In Science we investigated the durability, density and permeability of different rocks. 

In Geography we learned all about the Maasai tribe and their culture. I am sure that if you ask your children about our Kenya topic and the Maasai tribe, they will be able to tell you lots of interesting facts!

Today for PE we did some Sports Day prep! We are looking forward to Sports Day next week and are hoping for some more sunny weather!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Summer 1 Week 2

Another busy week in Classs 3! 

In Science this week we learned about the fossilisation process and looked at pictures of different fossils.

In Geography we did some more research on Kenya. I was so impressed to see how much the children found out and remembered from last week. We looked at the climate, the different landscapes, crops that are grown and sold in Kenya and where Kenya is in relation to other countries in Africa. 

In PE we practised sprinting and long distance running. We have some very fast runners in Class 3!!!

In Maths we looked at fractions of shapes and numbers and tried to apply our knowledge of simple fractions to some real life word problems.

In Literacy we planned and started to write our own story called 'The magic pebble'. Our grammar focus was to use lots of interesting noun phrases. We are looking forward to finishing off our story next week!

We hope you all have a lovely long weekend!

Summer 1 Week 1

Welcome back to the last term of this school year! We hope you all had a lovely holiday! 

We had a great week in Class 3 getting back into the swing of things!

In Science this week we looked at different rocks and discussed the differences between man-made and naturally occuring rocks. 

In Music we looked at pentatonic scales and sung our own version of 'Old MacDonald', playing some of the notes on a Glockenspiel! 

For our topic work we located Africa and then Kenya on a map. We thought about what animals might live in Kenya and what the weather and climate might be like. We also located some of the other countries in Africa.

In PE we practised our throwing and batting skills using tennis rackets.

Have a lovely weekend!

Spring 2 Week 6

We had a good last week of term in Class 3 and are now ready for the holidays :) !! We really enoyed preparing for the Easter service and spent some time in class going over the different parts of the Easter story. In maths we practised reading the time to the nearest quarter of an hour and in literacy we focused on using commas in our writing. In PSHE&C we talked about how we can be good friends to each other and the qualities that we look for in a friend.

As it is the Easter holidays, no new homework or spellings were sent home this week. Most of the children handed in their homework and spelling books on Monday, however, there are a few outstanding books. If your child has not handed in their books please ensure they hand them in to us on the first day back after Easter otherwise they will not get the new homework or spellings.

We wish you a very happy Easter and hope that you all have a good rest!

Spring 2 Week 5

Another week has flown by in Class 3. It was lovely to see some of you at parents evening on wednesday and we look forward to seeing more parents on monday afternoon for part 2! 

The highlight of this week was the Easter journey which we all really enjoyed! It was amazing to see how much the children already knew about the different parts of the Easter story.

This week we spent lots of time solving money word problems. The children practised making amounts using different coins, working out change and solving real life two step word problems! We were so impressed to see how far the children have come in their maths since the beginning of the year! 

In literacy we planned another explanation report, this time the children were able to choose their own topic! We are looking forward to writing up our reports in our Big Write books at the beginning of next week! 

In Art we carried on with our paper weaving and in RE we discussed what Christians have learned from Jesus' teachings. 

We are looking forward to the Easter service next week and to other Easter related activities. We can't believe it's only a week to go until the holidays!

Have a lovely weekend and we hope all the mums have an extra special Mothering Sunday!
