Creative Homework

It has been amazing to see 3B's creative homework this week. So much effort has been put into not only the models, but also the the written tasks. Well done 3B - I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeves!! A big thanks to parents and carers...

Hedgehog Hotels!

The children had lots of fun building hedgehog hotels for our spiky friends. Hopefully they will provide a cosy shelter for them over the colder months!

Bug Hunt!

In Forest School today, the children had a great time searching for different creatures for the houses they created! They found a wide range of insects, snails and spiders and gently collected them for a closer look.

Ready, steady, move that jelly!

In Science we are looking at forces. This week the children timed each other as they moved cubes of jelly from one bowl to another using chopsticks. They found it too easy! So the next time they did it, we added oil to the jelly cubes. This was MUCH...

Who built the pyramids?!

Today the children went into the Environmental Area to hunt for clues. Once they had found all of their group’s pieces, they made their jigsaw which showed them a message. The only problem was…it was written in Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs! Using an...

A big welcome back to you all! The children have come back from the summer holidays with smiles on their faces and eager attitudes towards their learning. It has been great to hear about what they have been getting up to and they have already begun to show just what a Key Stage 2 can do! I know they will continue to do this across all aspects of their school life. Keep checking back here for regular updates about what we’ve been getting up to in 3B and please don’t hesitate to speak to us about any questions you may have. Remember, we have an open-door policy so if you need us, just let us know! Thanks, Mrs Burn, Mrs Ion, Mrs Donaldson and the team 🙂

Things to remember:

  • PE kits should be in school all week, taken home at the weekends for washing. Our current PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays but we often have changes of timetable, visitors in school etc. which means that PE may take place on different days.
  • Reading – your child should be reading at least 3 times a week, one of these times to an adult. Feel free to read more that this though – and it doesn’t just have to be the school reading book! We love to read!
  • Forest School – Year 3 will be doing Forest School on Monday afternoons and will need appropriate clothing (like in year 2), including a waterproof/old coat, wellies, warm trousers, e.g. jogging bottoms, and a hat/cap.
  • Water bottles – your child should have a bottle in on Mondays and taken home to be washed on Fridays.
  • Creative homework – this has been given out for this half term and the progress check dates are on the sheet. Remember – you need to earn at least 15 points in a half term. We love to see you achieving more and can’t wait to see how creative you can be!
  • Spelling and times table tests will be on a Monday morning. New spelling and times tables will be handed out then too.
