Hello Yellow Class

Hello Yellow Class,

 

Here we go…my first message to you!

 

I just wanted to say a quick ‘hello’ and let you know about some of the learning that we have ahead for next term. It was really great to meet you all before the holiday and think about our first topic a little – Native Americans. The artwork you completed about Native American names was so fantastic. I have it all ready to go on the wall in our new classroom.

When we come back to school on Monday 7th September, we’ll be thinking a little bit about our school history to start with because of all of the big changes that are planned – I hope you’ve seen some of the photographs that Mrs Moss has put on the website showing the building as it is now. I wonder if you spotted our new room!

 

On Tuesday we’ll start our Native American topic and we’ll begin by looking at totem poles and seeing if we can make our own. Later in term I’m looking forward to some great history lessons and drawing in art, as well as Native American music to enjoy!

 

If you want to get ahead with your learning then you could start to research a little about Native Americans. Perhaps you want to show your learning through a fact file, story, piece of artwork or even a poem. You can share your learning in class in the first week back.

 

I think these two websites are a good place to start:

Don’t forget to keep on reading. I’m enjoying the Famous Five at the moment by Enid Blyton.

 

See you all soon.

Adventures in Wonderland

Hello Yellow Class,

 

We had a great first day back thinking about our new project...a Mad Hatter's tea party. It will take place on Thursday 16th July and leading up to it, Mrs James will work on place mats in Art using designs inspired by your Science work. I will be helping you develop your story telling skills as we learn the whole story ready to share at the tea party!

 

The only thing you need to think about at home is your outfit. An outfit fit for a Mad Hatter's tea party, something smart I think. See what you can find.

 

See you in the morning to start thinking about our retell.

Happy half term!

Hello Yellow Class,

 

Well done to everyone for working so hard this half term.

 

When we come back next week, 'Stone Age Britain' is our next topic and our project will be to present the information we find out to other classes. We may be writing reports, creating powerpoints and short films. You will have to decide how you want to present your learning.

 

Red Class will have a special project...their first ever class assembly! We will enjoy watching that.

 

Over half term, maybe you could find out five interesting facts about Stone Age Britain and then present one amazing fact in an interesting way to be displayed in the classroom. Perhaps you could paint a picture, write a poem, write a fact file or create a 3D model of something interesting that will inform others about the Stone Age?

 

I look forward to seeing you all after the holidays. Have a good holiday.

Sporting Stars!

Hello Yellow Class,

 

You have been working hard during these last few weeks and your 'Top of the beanstalk' stories and art work was a great success.

 

Your families enjoyed the art exhibition and hopefully your artwork is on a wall somewhere at home now to make everyone smile.

 

We have our School Games Morning this Thursday, so remember to make sure that you have full PE kit in school, including trainers.

Swimming

This week sees the start of swimming for Year 3 children. Your child will need the following:

 

  • swimming costume (no bikinis), trunks or swimming shorts (must be above the knee)
  • towel
  • hair brush and bobble for those with hair longer than shoulder length
  • no earrings

 

Many thanks

Hello Yellow Class

Hello Yellow Class,

 

Wow! You have worked hard this term and it is a pleasure to see how much progress you are making. Your newspaper reports really showed how you are becoming confident writers and I enjoyed making your Easter cards with you (as I normally don't get to do much art with you all!) In Maths, the work we have completed on problem solving has really helped you use those calculations we keep working on. Well done!

 

Next term, during 'Picture Perfect' you will be designing and making a special picture with Mrs James to sell at the Art Exhibition in May. With me, you will create your own magical story based on what you could find at the top of a beanstalk (we will start off by looking at the traditional tale Jack and the beanstalk). Let your imaginations run wild over the holiday and think of as many strange ideas as you can. How about a deserted island or a magical fairground at the top of yours? If you get time to create a picture to share with us on the first day back of what you think the top of your beanstalk would look like, that would be great.

 

I hope you all have  a super Easter holiday and make sure you keep reading! On the first day back you need to remember all of those important first day back things like PE kits, book bags and books, water bottles and any homework.

 

Happy holidays,

 

Love from Mrs Moss x x

Our trip to The British Museum

Dear Parents,

 

We have all had a great day at The British Museum today. The look on the children's faces as we turned the corner and saw the impressive building was priceless. Not only did we enjoy exploring the Greek artefacts and completing several quizzes but also the journey into London itself spotting famous landmarks such as Wembley, The Shard, BT tower and the Hoover building to name just a few!

 

We expect your child was exhausted when they got home but over the next few days encourage your child to tell you more about what they saw, thought and learned during their trip.

 

Thank you to the PTFA for funding the trip and to all the staff and helpers for making this trip possible and such a success.  It is greatly appreciated and helps makes the children's learning so enjoyable.

 

Many thanks,

Welcome back!

Hello Yellow Class,

 

It is nearly time to come back to school so get those books ready, PE kits sorted (check that your pumps and trainers still fit!) and brains ready for lots of new learning. I wonder who has had a go on the school wall this holiday? Mrs James will be looking!

 

On Monday we will be finding out all about the Ancient Greeks and you will be thinking about what you want to find out about during our topic over the next few weeks. We will be planning our class assembly for your families to come to on Monday so get thinking about what we could include.

 

I hope you have had a good holiday and plenty of sleep. Make sure you have a good night's sleep on Sunday as it is back to early starts on Monday.

 

Love from Mrs Moss x x

 

PS - If you have not returned your British Museum slip, please bring it in as soon as possible.

Worcester Cathedral

Well done Yellow Class for a super trip to Worcester Cathedral today. You had remembered so much from your

RE lessons and your visit to St Catherine's last week. The guides at the Cathedral were impressed by how much

you knew. Good work! It was amazing to see the size of the Cathedral and the beautiful building. Which part of 

building did you like best? Everyone commented on your good listening and your manners as well as how good 

you all were at keeping yourselves safe. Remember to think about your artwork now and how you could use your

experiences today to help you.

Looking forward to seeing your collages.

Grand Performers

Well done Yellow Class for a very enjoyable Grand Concert. Your performance of 'Flower of Scotland' was excellent and I was very impressed with the range of individual and group performances too. Drummers, poets, pianists, dancers, guitarists to name just a few! It was lovely to see such talented and confident children. A super afternoon enjoyed by all!

 

Well done!

Wow!

What a super performance of The Nutcracker this afternoon! We had a brilliant time and it was lovely to see you sitting there spellbound as Clara and the Nutcracker Prince travelled on their way to the Land of Sweets. Once again, your behaviour was excellent even though you were by far the youngest in the audience. The staff at the Hippodrome thought you were great!

Tomorrow, you will write your review of the performance and then it's our turn to perform Blackwell's version of The Nutcracker! Will your parents be spellbound as they watch you? Fingers crossed.
