Summer 2 Week 2

Another busy week in Class 3 has flown by! 

This week we have been looking at 'toys from the past' and have compared these to the toys that the children like to play with today. If you have any old toys from when you or the children's grandparents were little, please do bring them in to show to the class! 

In Science this week we learned about the differences between natural and man-made materials. 

In Literacy our grammar focus was the present and the past tense and in maths we looked at solving complex maths puzzles! 

Our Year 3s have been busy rehearsing for the KS2 production whilst the Year 2s were painting using water colours in the style of Monet.

In RE we learned a new hymn and thought about what 'love one another as I have loved you' means to each one of us.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend!

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!

Mrs Weston and Mrs Pateman
