Performance reads, bookmarks and ‘Los tres cerditos’

It was wonderful to welcome many parents, grandparents and other family members to end our world book day celebrations. Each class nominated a representative who performed a reading. The focus was on volume, intonation, expression and fluency.

It was incredible to see the confidence and passion from all of our readers in front of a packed hall. We also announced the winners of the book mark competition; welcome done to Lois (Yr6), Amelia (Yr1) and Aaron (Rec). The assembly ended with a fantastic performance of  ‘Los tres cerditos’ (The Three Little Pigs in Spanish) from Year 4, 5 & 6.

Keep up the passion for reading everyone.

Year 3 Learning At Home

The Stone Age!

Year 3 have been eager to continue learning at home and have produced some inspiring Stone Age forts and villages. They are incredible.

So much time and consideration has gone into designing and making these models and the children have impressed us with their growing knowledge about this period in time. We have been lucky enough to use them in class to support on-going learning.

Come and visit them to find out more about Stone Age life!

Year 3 – Chrome Books

There has been excitement in the Year 3 classroom this morning, as the children were given their logins for the Chrome books. After having a short demonstration from year 6 a few weeks ago, Year 3 can’t wait to start using them to support their learning. First stop – making a table using Google Sheets for their science investigation observations!

What is Learning?

Earlier this week, Year 6 joined Year 3 for some thoughtful discussion and debate about the different components of learning.

What actually is learning? What are the most important attributes? How do some of our attributes link together? 

Together, the classes designed their own ‘learning washing line’, showing their thoughts and ideas. Each group had the opportunity to compare and debate with another team.

We even had to consider if any learning attributes were missing? These were explained and justified to other groups.

It was a pleasure to experience the children’s developing views on learning and our wider school ethos.

Christmas has come early…

Thank you so much to everyone who came and joined in with our Christmas card making day. It was so lovely to see so many adults come to make cards with the children. The cards look fantastic and we can’t wait to see what they look like when they are professionally printed. The Year 6 children did a brilliant job preparing all the resources and the PTA were fantastic at keeping the day running (and the room clean!)

Learning represented through Imaginative Artwork

Today, different classes worked together to think about how they can represent the concept of LEARNING through Art. The children were not allowed to use pencils or pens and had to be collaborative learners bringing together shared ideas to create these stunning creative pieces.

Each group was able to talk through how their creations were linked to learning. We were very impressed with all of the wonderful ideas that were shared.

Mrs Tricket is very excited to put each piece up for display to welcome us back into school in September.

Please take a momen to talk to your child about the ideas behind their pieces, I’m sure they will WOW you as they did us!
