We started this week with a lovely trip to the farm (see photos below). The children learnt about animal nutrition and plants. They also enjoyed feeding a range of animals including ducks, pigs, goats and turkeys.
In Maths we have been exploring adding numbers using base ten resources. In music the children were split into two groups to sing two different melodies simultaneously. It was really tricky at first but they cracked it!
In RE we learnt about wedding vows and the children had a go at writing their own. Although there was a lot of laughter to begin with, they produced some very mature responses!
Have a lovely weekend all
This week we had our skills for life day all about eating healthily. The children discussed and learnt about the benefits of eating healthily and we made a healthy vegetarian noodle dish. We also learnt about sugar swaps (yummy, but healthy alternatives to sugary and fatty foods). Learn more here: https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/food-facts/sugar/sugar-swaps-for-kids.
In PE we had great fun trying to master the 'Teddy Roll' in gymnastics...see photos below!

"We learned about digits in maths" - the children played games to strengthen their understanding of place value
"We learnt more about the character of Tricia Ann in our story 'Goin' Someplace Special' and we wrote letters from Tricia Ann to her mum".
"In History we looked at maps and we found the River Avon" (We are going to be looking at how the use of the river Avon has changed over time).

We are all really excited about going on our trip next week where we will be learning more about the River Avon and looking for clues about how it was used in the past. We will also be having our first music lesson with our tutor Mrs Stevens.

From Mr Hewett and 3 Larch.
We have had a fantastic first week of learning in 3 Larch. Here's what the children had to say about this week:
"In Maths we learnt about Flashback 4!"(quick fire questions at the start of each lesson)
"My favourite lesson was English... we played a guess who game where we wrote about ourselves and the other children had to guess who had written it."
"In PE we played elephant football....it was my favourite thing this week because there was lots of drama!"
We were also introduced to our Art on the Hill project and we had our first music session, learning how to use glockenspiels! Please see photos below.
Have a wonderful well earned rest over the weekend 3 Larch...
You deserve it!
All the best
