Another great week of learning in Larch Class. The children are really excited about going on their first big trip after a very long wait! Thanks for bringing the slips back and responding so quickly!
Here is what the children had to say about their learning this week:
"In PE we learnt how to play hockey" - Suhaib
"In maths we have been learning about division and multiplication!"- Angelo
"In art we made Henry VIII portraits." - Aryan
" In English we've been reading A Midsummer Night's Dream and we wrote a letter from Hermia to her father explaining why she didn't want to marry Demetrius." - Aria
"In Maths we have been learning about groups and arrays!" - Myra
"In spelling we have been learning about suffixes and today we played a game where we had to decide if we had to drop the 'e' or double the final consonant." - Minna
Have a lovely weekend everyone and apologies for the lack of photos as they didn't transfer from iPAD :o(
I've sorted it for next week though.
Happy New Year everyone!
We hope you've had a relaxing break and we are looking forward to the term ahead. PE will continue to take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (please send your child into school wearing their PE kits on these days as they were doing last term).
Our class topic this term is all about Tudors with a focus on comparing the lives of rich and poor people during this period of history. Our class text for English is William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. Here is a short animated version of the play if you are interested....we have played this to the children once already and it has really helped with the understanding of the story.
Our science topic this term will be all about light and shadows and in RE we will be learning more about Hinduism and the concept of re-incarnation.
I've a attached a few photos below of us enjoying parachute games in this week's PE lesson.
Have a wonderful weekend
Mr Hewett and the Y3 Team
