Ancient Technology Centre Trip

Class 3 had a wonderful time at the Ancient Technology Centre in Cranbourne last week.

We took part in many different historical activities to support our learning of the vikings.

We sat in a long house and learnt about the Viking way of life.

We all played a part in making a hook during a blacksmithing  workshop.

We had a go at shooting some arrows like the Vikings would to hunt their food.

We even made some bricks to rebuild a wall!






We have had a fantastic week learning all about the story of The Runaway Chapati.  We have retold the story, made sound effects for it, made a great collage and made a story map. We continue to have our daily Letters and Sounds and in PE we have been using the apparatus to show different kinds of movement – there were some amazing ideas!

This week our learning will be based around the story of Handa’s Surprise.

I look forward to seeing you at Parents Evenings next week.

Our Learner of the week this week is Lydia. She is always ready to learn and she plays and shares well with others.




Thursday 18th October 3.15-3.45

Egyptian Museum – The children and I would like to invite you to come into the classroom on Thursday for a walk around our Egyptian Museum.  So pick your children up as normal. Once all children are picked up, I will then invite you back in to come and look at some of our learning.

Week beginning: 8/10/18

Congratulation to our pupil of the week who was chosen for her resilience in Mathematics. She was also able to demonstrate confidently how to solve a problem in front of the whole class. Well done!

In Mathematics we have been finding the difference and learning how to subtract. The concrete resources have really helped us grasp the concept.

In writing we have been learning about fronted adverbials and compound sentences. We have been trying to be more creative with how we connect our sentences and how we start our sentences.

In Science we have begun a science investigation. We looked at the effect different drinks can have on our teeth. This involved an egg! – Ask your children to find out more.

I have had a lot of children on the pot of gold this week! Well done to those children who are really making an effort to show they are ready to learn.

Have a wonderful weekend.
