Our attendance for last week was 95%. Well done! We had 3 late marks.
In English we started ou
r new text Oliver Twist. We have learnt that he is an orphan who has no mother or father and that he lives in an orphanage where the children are treated terribly. We also conducted our role on the wall and focused on the emotions Oliver would feel and the personality traits he could have.
In Maths, we started our new unit on length and measurement. We have added lengths, subtracted lengths, found the difference, converted between cm/mm/m and also begun to develop our knowledge of perimeter.
In Science, we completed our mind map for our new unit on Light. We can't wait to learn more interesting facts!
In our History lesson we developed our knowledge of key vocabulary including invasion, conquer and empire. We located the countries Britain invaded and found them on the map. It was very exciting.
We also had our trip. It was amazing and we learnt so many facts! Thank you to the helpers who supported us.
Our Learning Hero will be announced next week as we were on our school trip.
Our Extraordinary Learners were:
Our Championship Point winners were Alfie, Lusiya and Mariama. Well done!
Our winning house was Self - Belief!
Swimming is EVERY MONDAY. PLEASE ensure that your child's clothing is labelled and they are given a bag to carry this in. We have had lots of items go missing and this would help us greatly.
P.E is EVERY WEDNESDAY. Again please ensure a full kit is provided each week. This can remain in school and children can take it home at the end of term.
Home Learning is given out on Wednesdays/Thursdays. Children are expected to complete this by the following Monday. If this is not completed then they will be expected to attend home work club. Online resources such as Active Learn https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 and Times Table Rockstars https://ttrockstars.com/ support children in the development of key comprehension and times table fluency.
Reading books are changed as much as possible throughout the week. The more we read the better writers we will become so we encourage as much as possible but expect at least a book to be changed once a week.
Tuesday 10th March - Art Gallery after school. Children's artwork will be available for purchase (£8 per piece)
Thursday 14th May - Year 3 trip to Smithills Farm
