Dear Yellow Class,
Firstly, well done for your super performances in church. We noticed lots of happy, smiling grownups watching you in the church. Everyone was very proud of you all.
Some brilliant learning has taken place this autumn term. To continue your super learning, here are a few things to keep you busy over the festive period!
Little and often works best. Remember fluency is a huge part of reading so it is good to keep re-reading your book over. Read your school book and other books from home... Perhaps a new year’s resolution could be to join the library?
Write a diary telling us all about your Christmas holidays. Really think about your handwriting as you write. Make sure it is the very best that you can do.
Practise the 3 and 4 times tables. Make sure that you know the corresponding division facts as well.
Finally, thank you all so much for all the lovely cards, messages and gifts. It is very generous of you all. Wishing you all a very happy Christmas break and we look forward to seeing you all in January!
Love from Miss Steele and Mrs Moran :)
Over the next two weeks, your homework is to practise recalling doubles and halves to 20 + 20 and multiples of 5 to 100, near doubles i.e. 17 + 16 and to enjoy lots of reading.
Love from Miss Steele :)
Well done to Yellow and Purple Class for a successful trip today!
You were able to show off your Roman knowledge and learn a few more facts as well! The adults at the villa commented on how brilliantly behaved you were.
At our Grand Opening tomorrow, all of your Roman work will be on display. It will be nice to see the grown ups and let them know how well you have settled into Year 3.
Miss Steele and Mrs Moran :)
Hello Yellow Class,
We are nearly there... Hopefully you have had a super break, done lots of exciting things and are ready for the start of term!
We are exploring everything Roman when we start back and have a trip to look forward to later on in the topic. We will even be creating 'Roman inspired' toys as part of our DT learning. If you have any spare 'squeezy' plastic bottles or boxes (particularly egg!) then it would be really helpful for you to bring them in on Monday, ready for our designing and making on Tuesday.
As you start to warm your brains up again, perhaps you could find out a Roman fact to share with everyone on Monday. Hopefully all of you will have had some time to read over the holiday, if you have a 'Recommended Read' to share with us then please bring it in.
We are really looking forward to seeing you all on Monday!
From Miss Steele and Mrs Moran :-)
Hello Yellow Class,
What a lovely week we've had learning all about 'British Sport'! I'm looking forward to more learning next week leading up to our Sports Day on Friday where we will be running, skipping and having fun with lots of team games. For your homework this weekend why not research a little about your favourite British sporting star? You can present what you have found out in your own way i.e. poster, leaflet, PowerPoint, art... and bring it in to show us all on Monday.
Have a lovely weekend.
From Miss Kuriger :)
Well done Yellow class for your courage and confidence to perform so well at school yesterday. Your poems were fantastic and it was great to hear all your hard working paying off in your singing too.
I particularly enjoyed seeing all of your brilliant paintings on display. We had a lot of fun making those too.
Thank you for entertaining us. I'm looking forward to learning all about sport over the next few weeks. On Monday we are getting creative with some DT. Have a lovely rest of the weekend.
Miss Kuriger :)
A great BIG well done to all of your for your wonderful assembly and museum today!
Every single person said their words nice and clearly, danced perfectly and performed the poem brilliantly. What stars you all are! I hope you feel proud inside and that you remember that hard work and effort really do pay off in the end.
Lots of people were very impressed with how much you had learnt and could share in our Bronze Age museum also. Weaving, beaker making, collage, reports and our history puzzle all went down really well indeed. I saw lots of you having fun making stone circles too. I know that all of your grown ups will be very proud of you.
Well done again! We'll be learning more about Easter next week so that should be exciting too.
Miss Kuriger :)
Hello Yellow Class,
Thank you for sharing your brilliant assembly with us this morning. We loved it! We particularly enjoyed your 'We're going on a bear hunt' tale and your Bronze Age dance. You'll be pleased to know that many of us got all of the quiz questions right which shows that you hooked us in and we listened well.
Thank you once again.
Love from Blue Class and Miss Townsend xxx
Well, Yellow class. The week has finally arrived...Thursday morning is our class assembly. I hope some of your grown ups will be able to come and watch.
You did so well in our mini practise yesterday. Keep practising those actions at home.
As you might have spotted, Mrs Morgan and Miss Rich have found us some costumes. You will need your PE shorts to go underneath and a dark t-shirt if possible. Please make sure they are in school by Wednesday so we can check.
Of course it's the 'Through The Ages' museum afterwards too, so it should be an exciting Thursday.
Have a lovely rest of the weekend and see you on Monday.
Hello Yellow Class!
We've now completed 3 of our 6 half terms of the year, so that means we are half way through Yellow Class! Wow! Doesn't time fly.
Next half term we are going to be learning about Prehistoric Britain and I've called our topic 'The Bronze Age and Beyond!' This is one of my favourite topics so I'm busy planning all sorts of interesting and exciting activities for us to do.
We will first have a little reminder about the Stone Age before looking at the Bronze and Iron Ages in Britain. Plus, this half term is our class assembly (on the 17th March...so 30 days if I have counted correctly!). Please have a little think if there is anything in particular you would like to do for the assembly.
Year 2s - if you can, please try and collect any little bits of metal this week - bits of foil, paper clips, old nuts and bolts that dad doesn't want etc. But, nothing sharp and ask an adult first. Bring them in on Monday.
Year 3s - if you have chance, become familiar with some Stone Age cave paintings. Your knowledge will be useful on the first day back. Try http://www.lascaux.culture.fr/#/en/00.xml/index.html for an interactive view!
Stay safe and see you on Monday.
Miss Kuriger :)
Thursday has been a good day! Very very well done to Year 2 who won the Wake and Shake competition today. You managed to show excellent timing and energy and are the well deserved champions! Year 3s you have improved so much so here's hoping for next time...I am very proud of you.
Also today, what wonderful designers you have all been. You designed, wrote recipes for and created healthy snacks, which I know you enjoyed munching on. Well done for being so sensible and safe whilst creating your goodies.
