Class 3

Class 3's Star of the Week!

Our star this week is...Isabella! Well done Isabella, so deserved. 

Always a bright, shining superstar Isabella is our star this week having shown enthusiasm, determination and dedication to all her learning. Isabella always gives 100% effort and is never asked twice for anything! Today also saw Isabella get 10/10 on her spellings which were incredibly difficult but so well deserved having practiced them three times everyday...such a role model! 

Great job Isabella, keep up the great work!

Another Week in Class 3...

What a week! Only a four day week but my it has been crammed full of very exciting, fun learning. 

This week McJingles our class elf made an appearance and has come out of 'elf-isolation' today causing mischief! 

The children have written letters to Santa this week, learning about the layout and features of letters. They were very proud of their letters and enjoyed walking up to the post box and actually posting them today even though we did get covered with sleet in the process. It has been a lovely week letter writing and we now all have our fingers crossed for a reply! 

Maths has seen the children learning their 4 times table this week, consolidating their 3's and learning their 4's. They are experts at arrays and sharing having produced some gorgeous work in their maths books that myself, Mr. Whitt and Mrs. Hull are extremely proud of. Throughout the last few weeks, the children have shown a real enjoyment and enthusiasm towards their times tables which has been so wonderful to see. 

Science saw the children making edible soil layers which helped them to understand the formation of soil and how it is made. They also learnt what soil is made up of and the four processes to soil formation. I have to say, I think the children thoroughly enjoyed this lesson as you will see in the pictures below!! 

Today, children have started using Google Slides in Computing, creating their very own presentations around an area of the Stone Age they find interesting. They have learnt how to add new slides, add photographs and text and have started to use animations on their slides making them interactive. This has been a fabulous area of learning in which the children have really enjoyed and I cannot wait for them to present their finished presentations in a few weeks time. 

This week we have made envelopes to go towards the live advent calendar window for the community in which the school will do a display for outside of the front gates. At the start of next week we will be creating a class stocking which will also be displayed and part of the final window. Keep your eyes peeled for this! 

Two more weeks to go girls and boys! IMG_5272

Reading, reading, reading - at least 3 times a week please

WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED TODAY!

REMINDER

In our Zoom assembly on Friday, Mrs Mason shared with the children some information about the super reading training that some of the teachers had attended.  One of the key messages from the course was all about the importance of reading regularly.  We read all the time at school and that regular practise at home makes all the difference.  Remember children, you signed your school agreement in September saying that you would read 3 times a week - go explore the exciting world of literature - go to places that you can only imagine.  Even in Lockdown we can explore places we never knew were possible.  Please share below in the comments the books you are enjoying at the moment - let's try to get every one to comment - tell your friends - share the good news of books and the power of being able to read.

Here is one to start us off - James in Class R enjoying his book - James, just like your top says, you are totally 'ROARSOME'! (original message 22/11/20 relaunched 2/12/20)

The class with the most reading comments in the box below will receive a class prize (closing date 8.30 am Friday, 11th December 2020)

Class 3's Star of the Week!

Our star this week is...Darcey! Well done Darcey, you have been a superstar all week trying so hard with everything that you do. Your self-belief and confidence have rocketed and you are shining like the bright, shining star you are. I love how you are giving 100% and trying to achieve things on your own but asking for help when you need it.

Keep up the great work Darcey! IMG_5213

Another Week in Class 3...

Another very busy week in Class 3 from newspaper report writing to mastering our 3x table!

Over the last two weeks the children have been working on newspaper report writing. They have worked incredibly hard with writing in third person, even changing from first to third person a ridiculously tricky concept but one that the children have really started to master. We have come up with a class draft, individual planning formats and research sessions which have then transformed into such fabulous newspaper reports about whether cave paintings are art or graffiti. I cannot wait to display these in the classroom and complete our fantastic Stone Age display. 

In maths this week, the children have been mastering their 3x table knowledge involving both multiplying and dividing within this table. The children have been using arrays to multiply and sharing when dividing which has seen some beautiful work being produced by all children in the class. We are extremely proud of the children's work and their effort and enthusiasm towards learning their tables, please keep it up! Today the children played a game using dice where they had to role a number in the three times table, which saw their adding and multiplication knowledge and recall excel (it was also lots of fun!)

Science this week, children discovered lots of facts about Mary Anning and her importance in scientific research and findings. They learnt about her fossil discoveries and love for curiosities.    

In Topic, the children were learning about Stone Age Diet which of course was cause for an investigation, an investigation of Stone Age poo!! Identifying the substances in these organic remains allowed the children to understand what a Stone Age diet consisted of and caused a discussion into whether this was a healthy diet. A very fun but smelly lesson! I think this was a particular favourite with the children. 

In PE, Mr. Smith handed out a medal for someone who is consistent, caring, competitive and co-operative with all other team players. Such amazing and fabulous qualities in which Morgan has shown and been noticed for...well done Morgan, very much deserved! 

Another great week for Class 3, with a very special, exciting week to come... IMG_5176

PROUD!

Proud2
Good morning children, in our Zoom assembly today, we celebrated our Stars of the Week - we felt very proud of our classmates and of ourselves. 

Everyone has the right to feel pride in themselves and in the work that they do. 

Ask yourself every day - "What have I done today to make myself feel proud?"

Please enjoy our special assembly song - maybe you would like to sing along with the words at home:

 

 

Odd Socks!

Thank you Class 3 for coming in your odd socks today to celebrate difference and that being different is ok! You have all shown your support towards Anti-Bullying Week this week, showing your maturity and compassion towards such an issue.

Class 3's Star of the Week!

Our star this week is...Logan!

Well done Logan, you have worked so incredibly hard this week in everything we have done, giving 100% effort towards it all with so much enthusiasm and a real love for learning. Your work has been fantastic but one thing that has really stood out this week and always has with you, is your kindness and compassion towards others in and outside the classroom. Never lose this. 

Keep up the great work Logan! IMG_5136

Another Week in Class 3...

Where did that week go? They are flying by but are also non-stop fun and full of hard work! 

This week the children had a debate over whether cave paintings from the Stone Age are ART or graffiti. This is all linked to work we are doing from our core text 'Stone Age Sentinel'. The debating skills and questions from the children were fantastic, they were polite but also had some brilliant points of view. Our debate had a very drastic change, originally only 5 children believed cave paintings were graffiti but by the end of the debate, 14 children changed their minds from the points that had been discussed. Great work Class 3! This week's English has also seen the class produce a draft newspaper article on cave paintings being ART or graffiti ready to write their own versions next week.

On Monday, we celebrated Diwali, the festival of light. Children learnt about the traditions, story and ideas behind the festival and created their very own Diya Lamps, which look stunning! They also learnt about Rangoli patterns and their importance. 

The children have been working very hard in maths, practicing their times tables using arrays and sharing for division. They have particularly enjoyed 'Array Capture' today which allows children to race to the end by only using arrays. Their times tables have really started to improve which is great to see! Keep it up Class 3! 

Science saw the children looking at Fossils and the fossilisation process. Together we made a 'rock lab sandwich' which showed the children how fossils make an imprint and the process into how a fossil is formed. 

It's been another fabulous week in Class 3. I can't wait for another one! IMG_E5122
