Science Week

 

Next week is science week.  We will be doing lots of fun activities such as build a wind turbine, making slime and building a rocket.  We will also be looking at planting seeds in our recycled toilet roll holders and planting them in the ground.

A big thanks must go to Mrs Hall for arranging all the wonderful activities and for getting in all the supplies.

Outdoor Adventurous Activities

In PE this term we have been having lots of fun developing many skills in Outdoor Adventurous Activities!

We have been developing our team work skills through various different challenges. We have used our bodies to make different letters of the alphabet and we also had to face the challenge of using only 5 stepping stones to get a team of Vikings across a giant pool of water!

Later this week we will be using maps, along with our problem solving skills, to help us complete various challenges.

Year 3

Fractions

In Maths we have been working really hard to learn all about fractions!

We have learnt how to find fractions of shapes and numbers, as well as learning how to place fractions on a number line! Our Learning Journey wall shows that we have been using the Bar Model and Whole Part Model to help in developing our understanding.

This week we begin our assessments across our core subjects. We are sure nobody will need it but… Good luck!

Term 4

Invasion is on the way.

This term has began  with our stunning start, which saw the Anglo-Saxons of Chestnut class defend their lands from the murderous, marauding Vikings of Rowan, with their own home made swords and shields. This will lead us into the start of our topic, as well as, providing some background knowledge and feelings to help with our English writing (Non- Fiction Writing in the form of a News Paper report.)

We have also introduced a new app to help us learn our times tables.
This is an amazing app that helps children with their times tables.  The best part is earning coins to change your own rockstar and compete as a class or beat your best time!
I will set specific times tables and will monitor your improvement from school,  we will also be doing our own assessments at school using this system.  It is fun!
To access the ones we set, go onto GARAGE or ARENA area!

Who will be the most improved times table rockstar and have their picture up in the hall AND wear the rockstar dress up in school?

Finally, I will see you on Friday at the school Christmas fair!

Many thanks for your ongoing support,

Miss Sisk and Mrs Hall.
