Welcome to our class page. Here, you will find information about the children’s exciting learning, as well as any key dates or important pieces of information that you will need to know for the upcoming weeks and months.
Reminders and Dates
Our PE this half term will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure the children have both their indoor and outdoor PE kits in school as the sessions will be weather dependent.
Homework will be shown on Google Classrooms each Friday and will be due in the following Thursday. Each week, we will set a maths or English task that should take the children around 20 minutes to complete. There will also be 5 reading sessions recorded in the yellow Reading Records, which can include 1 Reading Plus lesson, and a set of spellings that will be focused around specific spelling rules that week.
What an amazing day we had as Egyptians! Children thoroughly enjoyed producing Egyptian artwork, dancing and getting the opportunity to eat and drink like rich Egyptians.
During PE lessons this half term, the children have enjoyed gymnastics. They have learnt the key skills and worked well as partners and in small groups.
Health and Well Being Week
This is the worship team from our first term in Year Three. The children did a fantastic job when leading the worship each week. The children enjoyed singing their favourite songs and participating in drama performances.
During a Science lesson, the children worked in partners to make three types of rock; sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic with starburst sweets. The children cut up the sweets, squashed them together and melted them in a microwave to make the different rocks. Lots of fun was had!
To start our topic for this half term, the Year Three classes opened a mystery box. Inside the mystery box, were clues for what topic we would be learning about. After a while, the children guessed correctly and are looking forward to learning all about the Stone Age.
In PE this half term, we are taking part in netball and football. During the sessions, we are learning skills such as; throwing, catching, dribbling and kicking with accuracy. Children have already shown how well they can work as a team and in partners and how they strive to and complete challenges given.
What is the Best Way to Clean Your Hands?
We discussed what we could do to investigate different ways of cleaning our hands. We used oil and cinnamon to make our hands feel and look dirty. We then cleaned them in one of four ways – soap and water, hand gel, a wet wipe or just water. We made a note of our observations and used these to draw our conclusions. Soap and water was the only way of removing all the brown specks of cinnamon and the oil. The hand gel made very little difference at all.
