This gives us a space to share the children's fantastic achievements and keep you up to date with spellings, events or other class information.

What a fantastic day! We have been orienteering, creating natural art, toasting marshmallows, cooking popcorn, making dens and creating clay faces for the trees. It's been a very active and adventurous day.

Some highlights from our Roman topic

During our Roman topic we have done quite a few different activities. We were visited by a Celtic story teller who told us all about life before and after the Romans invaded. We have made Roman coins using clay and Roman numberals, 3CV even made some Roman purses to keep them in. We are also busy making Roman shields so that we can reenact the battle between the Romans and Boudicca Queen of the Iceni.

3W - Home Learning Exhibition and Bad Hair Day

Thank you to everyone who came to our home learning exhibition today. We had a fantastic range of projects about teeth, digestion, light, bones, Chromatography and fossils. The children did a fantastic job and should be very proud of themselves. We also had a great selection of 'bad hair' for comic relief! 

Home Learning Exhibition - Friday 24th March

 

A reminder of the details of our next Home Learning Exhibition

 

The Exhibition Project

3W and 3S will both have their home learning exhibitions on Friday 24th March at 2.30pm in their classrooms. To save parents having to make two events so close together, 3CV will have their exhibition following the sharing assembly on 24th March at 3pm.

Please support your child in completing a piece of work with a Science theme to be shown at our ‘Home Learning Exhibition’. Suggestions include:

  • Photographs and explanation of an experiment you have done at home
  • a labelled model
  • a poster/ booklet based on research you have done

Suggestions for themes include: plants, magnets and forces, sound, digestive system & teeth, light, living things & their habitats ...

3W need to say a massive thank you to Ruth Gidley (Ramona's Mum) who came in and did a fantastic talk for the children all about the Mayan people today as part of our Chocolate topic. The children were lucky enough to hear about first hand experiences, look at images, learn new facts, share artefacts, try on costumes and even taste some tortilla. The children (and their teacher) thoroughly enjoyed the experience, it is so lovely when parents are able to come in and directly share in our learning, we loved it! 

3W - Gruffalo Performance to Year 1

3W really enjoyed performing The Gruffalo to the year 1 children today. All of the children had a different role, playing either a character or the narrator and everyone did a fantastic job of using expression in their voices, speaking extra clearly and even adding in some sound effects, actions and voices. We were very proud of them! 

3W - World Book Day

3W really enjoyed reading with the children in Mrs Morgan's class. We also wrote book reviews, designed book marks and some of us entered a book token competition. 

3W learn about the Digestive System.

Chocolate School Trip 

For some time, we have been trying to find an alternative to the Cadbury World trip that used to take place in Year 3 as we found that it was expensive and exhausting for the children with limited academic value. Unfortunately, after trying 8 different companies, we have been unable to secure an alternative. Please be assured though that we will be providing some interesting and practical experiences for the children this half term, including chocolate tasting, market research, designing and making our own chocolate and advertising our products. 

We are also planning a visit from the dentist to support our learning in science and hopefully a scientific circus workshop to help us explore forces.

This week we have been super busy! We have taken part in sponsored skipping, indoor cycling, run a mile and played ultimate dodge ball. It has been great fun trying all of these activities. 

Look at our amazing runner beans!

The runner beans we have been growing have been doing really well, some of them have grown so much we had to stand on chairs to measure them! The bean with no water and the bean outside haven't done so well and the one in the dark has grown but is very pale. Next week we will think about what all this has taught us about how plants germinate and grow. 

Thank you to all who came to 3W's Sharing assembly exhibition!
