Welcome to our school - full of happy, hard-working children and teachers. We want every child to participate fully, respect other people, be independent and determined in achieving excellence.
Happy October Half Term! I hope you all have a great time, enjoy Halloween and don't eat too many sweets!
This half term has been jam packed full with many exciting learning opportunities that the children have loved. in Literacy, the children have learnt everything they need to know about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from creating and memorizing story maps, writing a chocolate room based poem and designing their own wonderful, imaginative food rooms which became their hot writes.
As well as this the children have been working hard with their place value knowledge; respresenting numbers, ordering 3 and 4 digit numbers, comparing, using number lines and rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. All this accompanied with lots of reasoning and problem solving.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed our topic this half term, Mountains. They have learnt about the different types of mountains, how they are formed and their characteristics. We have learnt about contours and even created our own contour mountain. Ospreys have become code breakers and all round geographical superstars!
Our Year 3 Science topic of Rocks has been full of exciting practical experiments. Starburst rock cycles, lego weathering, erosion and deposition activities, bread fossils, permeability experiments to designing and making edible soil. Yes that's right...edible soil!
It really has been a great first half term and I look forward to the next one!
