Class 3

In Science, we've been exploring sound. We made pan pipes to show how the length of an instrument can alter the pitch.

In Maths, we are learning about finding fractions of quantities. We used cheerios and bar modelling to help us do this. It was very hard not to eat them!

Look at our fab mosaics! As part of our Roman topic, we have been learning how mosaics were made. We experimented with printing techniques to design and paint our own.

In the event of teacher absence due to COVID 19

In the last week of term, the children worked really hard to make SPAG booklets to help Jemima, our elf on the shelf. She struggled with her writing but with their fantastic effort, she made a huge improvement!

Class 3 met Father Christmas today!!!

We finally unwrapped our mummified tomatoes. We were surprised that they hadn't gone mouldy or rotten and instead had leathery, wrinkled skin!

In DT, we made our own shadufs

We had a visit from The History Man to teach us all about Ancient Egypt. We looked at exciting artefacts, dressed up, made scarab beetle amulets, pretended to be slaves building pyramids and even got mummified!

We learnt about the process of mummification by mummifying tomatoes today! We will use this experience to write instructions.

We used our problem solving skills to make prototype shadufs in DT

Pyjama Day for Children in Need!

In English, we read 'The Egyptian Cinderella'. We acted it out and wrote our own stories from the Pharaoh's point of view to put in a class book called 'Pharaoh's Journey'.

We designed and painted our own Ancient Egyptian tomb paintings

Little Miss Bee written by Neve

 

Verse 1:

Little Miss Bee sat on a tree eating her beans and toast,
Along came a frog,
Who jumped on a log,
And looked forward to his roast.

Verse 2:

Little Miss Bee had finished her tea,
And the frog had finished to,
So they walked off together,
And then found a feather,
And then the frog went, “atchoo!”

Welcome to Class 3

 

Mrs Mitchell is our Class 3 teacher, Mrs Powell and Mrs Prior are our teaching assistants. We look forward to working with the children and their parents throughout the school year.

 

Class 3 is shared by children in Years 3 and 4.

 

In Class 3 the children cover lots of different topics from Ancient Greece to The Rainforest. They are all extremely fascinating and exciting. Also, it gives the children the opportunity to explore, question and discover.

Class 3 Routines

  • Homework – is given out every Friday and needs to be handed in by the following Thursday.
  • PE – we have two PE lessons every week. Full PE kit is expected to be in school at all times this includes; PE shorts, PE top, trainers, tracksuit bottoms for colder weather. Girls will need a spare pair of socks.
  • Children in Class 3 go swimming in the summer term.
  • Spellings – we have a spelling test every Friday, please read through the spellings with your children.
  • Reading – it is vital that children read at least four times a week outside of school. It will really help them to progress in all of their subjects, especially their writing. Ideally, children should read to an adult who can ask questions about what is being read.

WHEN WE BEGIN TO READ, WE BEGIN TO FIND THE WORDS TO WRITE

Well-being afternoon

Before half term Class 3 enjoyed an afternoon exploring their own well being. We enjoyed a presentation of inspirational pictures with some  beautiful music  and then discussed which were our favourites and which scenes  helped us to feel calm or inspired. Later we designed our own very special un-worry islands which we could explore in our imaginations. Some of our islands had special places to live such as tree houses, magic caravans, lighthouses or caves. We included people or animals that we could visit and many of our islands had fabulous features such as magical playgrounds, cafes which served unlimited ice cream and pirate ships to explore. After that we went outside to try some cloud watching on the field and played games to help us to work as a team, have fun and stay fit. Back in the classroom we listened to some calming music, sang some of our favourite songs and completed some artwork. It was a great afternoon and we found lots of ways of feeling happy and calm.

On Tuesday 11th June Class3 had 'the history man' pay a visit. The children learnt lots of exciting things about the Victorians from clothes to weapons. Here are some photos.

On Monday 23rd October,  Class 3 went to The Chase High School for a 'hockey day'. The children learnt some hockey skills before lunch, followed by a mini tournament after lunch. They all had an amazing time.
