Gardening Week

 

Many thanks to all the parents who donated such lovely plants, shrubs, flowers,compost and time to help with the revamp of the grounds. I was really impressed with the children's  desire to make a difference and take a pride in the area outside the classrooms.

 

Please have a look at some of the pictures from before and after!

Year 3 - Computing - Graphing

Year 3 - Computing - Graphing 1
The year 3 children have been collecting data and then creating graphs. They have now started to analyse the data so it has some meaning.

New Topic - Ancient Egyptians - We built entrances to the tomb for a pharaoh called Sennapod, who contacted us and deciphered hieroglyphics. So far we have been discovering when the Egyptians lived, geography of Egypt and the importance of the River Nile to Egyptians.

Our New Topic - Journey Through Europe - We discovered our journey on a treasure hunt and got ready for our travels by getting familiar with our tents.

Roman Banquet - We made Roman bread rolls and honey cake and combined them with olives and grapes for our banquet. They were delicious!

Art Day- Study of Paul Klee - We learnt about the artist and explored some of his paintings before creating our own, inspired by his style.

Computing - During the autumn term the children in Year 3 were using ‘formulas’ within spreadsheets to perform calculations.

Anti-Bullying Week - As part of Anti-Bullying Week, we looked at the effect bullying has on people and their mental health. We treated two apples differently and then cut them open to see the damage that had been done to the inside that we couldn't see.

Times Tables Practice - I've attached below a document with links to several free times table activities which children can practise at home. By the end of Year 3, children should know all their times tables for 2,5,10,3,4 and 8. This should be for fast recall and include knowing the associated divisions too.

Our Trip to Alcester Roman Museum - A selection of photographs from our fun and informative day.

A poem to introduce our topic

The Romans in Britain, by Judith Nicholls and read by Richard Brown. Thanks to the author for her permission to use her work.

Why learn Spanish?

We have started our Spanish lessons!

Homework

Your child should have brought home their spelling, grammar and maths homework on Friday night. Each book will have a page marked that they need to complete and it also has the due date. Please do not complete any further pages as these will be set in subsequent weeks. If you wish to complete more work, please login to MyMaths where an optional task has also been set or spend some time practising times tables using some of the links in the document below.  

 

Many thanks,

Mr Fidler
