Well done to our pupil of the week, who was chosen for her resilience in her maths.

In writing we have been writing about the Victorian times. We turned the classroom into a Victorian classroom where the teachers were strict and children were sent to the corner to wear the dunces hat! All role play of course.  We practised writing in chalk and we also had to do Victorian exercises. We then wrote about a Victorian school day.

In maths we are now using a different approach to really teach children in depth about number. We have been using lots of concrete resources to help further develop their understanding. It has been amazing watching the children really grasp their learning! Well done for all of you being so resilient.

We have also given out roles in the nativity.

Would it be possible to have tow angel costumes donated? We also need to large animal costumes as we have two tall boys!

Please find attached a list of names for Christmas cards  Class list

Many Thanks

This week in maths, we are focusing on place value and looking at the different ways we can represent numbers using Base 10 and place value grids. The pupils will be continuing to use concrete resources to help reinforce and build on their knowledge of place value and number throughout the lessons.

In English, we will be continuing to work on our play scripts about bumping into a Viking on the beach. We will be performing these in groups later on in the week. In spellings, we will be working on prefixes and suffixes.

We will be making our longships this week as part of D & T, thank you for sending your child in with some cardboard. We will also be taking a dance lesson on Wednesday, and having a RNLI talk on Thursday afternoon-long with much more.

Hello everyone, I was very impressed with all the Viking longhouses that arrived into class 3 yesterday morning. You have all worked really hard, and it will be lovely to show off your creations at our homework exhibition next week.

This week in Class 3 will be revisiting our column addition, subtraction and multiplication. We will also be doing some more work on perimeter. In our writing, we will be exploring the different features of playscripts and planning our own to perform later next week.

In Science, we will be learning about the muscles in the human body. In our Vikings topic we will be exploring Viking Myths and Legends and we will also be beginning some work in our netball skills in PE.

If any parents are available to help out on our school trip on Friday 24th of November, please let me know as soon as possible.

I have also set new mymaths homework, so get practicing!

Here are some pictures from our class debate yesterday, we looked at the playscript of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and the children had to decide whether or not the goats should be allowed cross the bridge. They came up with some very convincing arguments!

 

 

Next week, we will be making Viking Longboats so pupils will need some cardboard to create their models. Can you please send your child in with an empty cereal box so that we can start work on these boats? Thank you.

Well done to our pupils of the week, they were chosen for their resilience towards their learning.

This week we have been learning all about Guy Fawkes. We acted out the story and then wrote about all the facts we had learnt.

In Maths we have been learning to multiply and divide. We used different methods to see how we could get to the solution.

In Writing we have been writing stories and learning about features of poetry. We are looking forward to writing shape poems next week.

Thank you for all the home learning projects that I am getting in. They look fantastic. Keep them coming.

I have again been checking times tables and counting forward and backwards in 1’s, 2’s, 5’s and 10’s from any number. Please can you practise this with your child at home along with visiting the my maths website.

We have covered the following spellings: door, floor, poor, because, find, kind, mind, behind, child, children, wild, climb, most, only, both, old, cold, gold, hold, told and every. Please can you keep revisiting these with the children and check they can spell them all. If they are struggling focus on 3 words a week.

Thank you for all your support,

Mrs Miller

Well done to our pupil of the week who was chosen for his wonderful writing. He thought about everything he would need to include to be successful. Well done.

In writing the children continued looking at the Tunnel by Anthony Browne. They wrote a story middle to fill in the gaps of the missing story.

In Maths they looked at 2d and 3d shapes. They tried to find 2d shapes on the surface of 3d shapes and verticle lines of symmetry.

Home learning

Wk beginning: 9/10/17

Well done to our pupil of the week. She was chosen for her resilience in her learning.

This week, we have been learning about place value on a number line and 3d shapes. In writing we have been reading the story about The Tunnel by Anthony Browne. The children listened and responding to each others ideas about Rose’s decision to go into the tunnel. Next week we will be writing about what happens next once she goes into the tunnel (The story problem).

Above I have attached home learning ideas. The due date for home learning is the 6th November.  Children are being tested on mental maths and spellings in the form of a dictation and timetable tests. So please keep practising these at home. Spelling are in the front of the reading journals or a mixed 1 and 2 list are below.

Kind regards
