Please ensure that ALL your children’s clothing is named, including trousers, skirts and shirts. When the children get changed for PE it is hard for them to find the right white shirt if it is not named.
Please also ensure that the children have a named water bottle in school every day.
What a super time we have had last week during Art Week.
The children have really enjoyed the many different workshops we have been involved in., including a dance workshop, a visit from Kent music and a literacy workshop from a published author.
The children also created the planed Uranus using Modroc for our school display and we also created planets using paper mache.
In between all the fun of art week we have continued writing descriptive scenes based on our class book, ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ and we have focused on addition and subtraction in numeracy.
Welcome back to Term 6. In literacy this term, we will focus on learning around the wonderful book “The Lost Happy Endings”
which is filled with rich descriptive language.
The emphasis for our writing will be poetry, character description and settings.
Our topic this term is learning all about volcanoes and earthquakes.
The children are already eagerly watching exploding volcanoes and learning how they are created.
Our science links into our topic and the children will be learning rocks and soils.
Swimming continues this term, so please remind your child to bring their swimming kit on Friday.
It seems like we have only just begun term 5 and now it’s over.
However we have packed lots of amazing learning during this short term.
In Numeracy the children have been continuing with their understanding of fractions, the focus this week was comparing and ordering fractions.
In our art lesson the children have produced a super clay sarcophagus, which they finished painting using Ancient Egyptian art.
We are looking forward to Term 6 and erupting volcanoes and shuddering earthquakes.
During the past week the children have been working extremely hard completing their assessment test for literacy, numeracy and GPS.
Well done to all year 3 for your fantastic effort and endurance.
Even thought we were very busy with assessments the children have been completing some super writing linked to our class novel, The Twits.
Our pasta making was also a great success. The children worked very hard kneading and rolling out the dough. It was wonderful that they were able to have their pasta cooked for them in the kitchen and they thoroughly enjoyed eating it.
The plates were all cleared,
This week we have had a lot of fun making our mountains for Art and Topic.
In Literacy we have now started to write our alternative story of the Tunnel using the children’s ideas.
In Numeracy we are continuing our learning of fractions by using the bar model to help us find fractions of numbers.

Following on from our trip the children wrote a report on Sheerness as a seaside town, linked to our topic.

We will be planting our seeds in science today to investigate what a plant needs for growth and health.
Please support your child with their reading by ensuring they bring their AR back into school everyday.
