Hello everyone!

We’ve had a busy week this week-on Monday year 3 had a chance to see the dress rehearsal of our end of year show. They were very impressed!

In maths we have begun our geometry unit and have been exploring different angles.In writing, we focused on writing from a point of view earlier in the week (the children wrote a diary entry about how it would feel to be one of England’s players gearing up for their big match), we then moved on to planning our newspaper reports which we will be continuing next week.In PSHE we discussed different family structures and in PE we worked on our hand eye co-ordination.

Reports will be sent out today, if you would like to discuss them with me you are free to pop in on Monday after school (please see the newsletter).

Thank you,

Miss Deay

Well done to our pupil of the week, who was chosen for her collaborative learning, she explains problems really well and uses resources to help her.

This week,we have been learning about measures. We looked at how to measure capacity and how to measure mass. We also used <, > and = signs to compare.

In writing we have been looking at the the clip ‘Something Fishy’ on the Literacy shed website. We have only seen the beginning to help spark our imaginations. We read a story beginning about the clip and then we worked together to think of ways we could change the story to make it our own.

In Science, we have been learning about plants, animals and habitats. We have been grouping animals and plants and looking at what things they need to survive.

In RE we have been learning about how Jewish people show their commitment to God and show how important God is to them. We watched a Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

In PE, we have been continuing to learn skills in TAG rugby and golf.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Please note, our trip will take place on Thursday!

Well done to our pupil of the week who, wrote a letter to innocence smoothies, explaining how their straws were not helping the environment. This showed great initiative.

This week we have been writing our own poems, similar to the sound collector but instead of a stranger, we had a dinosaur and the poems were set in different habitats.
In Science we have been looking at trees, flowers and habitats around the school. We discussed what a good habitat would be. We also wondered if our school was a good place for a dinosaur to live.
In maths we have been continuing to learn about time!
In RE we have been continuing to learn about the creation story.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Our pupil of the week has been chosen for his resilience and behavior, he is always demonstrating our school values.

What a great start to the term. We have been measuring how long some dinosaurs were using meter sticks and trundle wheels, we have been Looking at poems and seeing how we could change them to incorporate a dinosaur, we have been making dinosaurs, taking part in see, think, wonder activities and so much more.
In RE we have started to discuss the creation and to dig a little bit deeper, thinking about how we should look after the planet that God created.

We were also really lucky today because we got a visit from Paddy and his mum. They talked us through children who are differently able. We got to play with sensory toys, use a wheel chair, see what it is like for people who are visually impaired and try some of Paddy’s favorite snacks.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
