Posted by teacherclass2 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on January 25, 2019

This half term we are finding out about two famous women from the past, Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale. We will be trying to decide whose achievements are the most significant.

The children are really engaged with the topic and have  been exploring artefacts from the history centre, role playing and carrying out research to find out what they both did during the Crimean War.

PE

We will have games on a Tuesday (year 3 swimming) and gym on a Thursday so please insure children have appropriate PE kit in school.

SCIENCE

We will continue with our long term study, observing different materials we have left outside. We will update you of our findings so far very shortly.

HOMEWORK

Reading

Listening to your child read  is invaluable, please sign their reading record books when you have read with your child.

Mathlectics

Each week they should aim to earn 1000 points on mathlectics for which they will earn a sticker.

Speedys

We do our speedy challenge on Fridays. Children need to learn the multiplication and division facts for each table and recall as many as they can in 5 minutes. Each week they aim to beat their previous score.  Children will know which speedy challenge they are on and you can help them by regular practise.

Spelling

Children have individual spelling s to practise each week. These are either the exception words or follow spelling rules we have practised in class. We test these words half termly to check progress.

We have had a great start to the term and look forward to more exciting learning ahead.

Posted by teacherclass2 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 9, 2018

This week we have been finding out about World War One.

Yesterday we were fortunate to have Mr Eggington in school with  his collection of artifacts from the war. It was a very interesting hands on session and we learnt a lot.

A big thank you to Mr and Mrs Eggington for giving up their time to come and talk to us.

We have also been working together to decorate our soldier ready for the display in Vigo Park on Saturday.

It  was fun learning about world war 1. It was fun doing the soldier and cutting all the shapes. We  learned about all the animals like the dog and pigeon  who helped carry messages. We liked the sunset.

Beth & Pops

In world  war 1 they  sent dogs with  messages . The pigeon gave messags to the people.

Henry & Robyn

Ww1 was very exciting especially whne we were with Mr and Mrs Eggington. I liked the grenades. I liked the weight to show us how heavy their packs were. I liked the trumpet it was very fun!

Toby and Thomas

Mr  Eggington   came  to   talk about   world war 1. He  had badges from world  war 1. Also he had guns  from soldiers and he had  real bullets. Mr Eggington had  knifes that looked like they won’t hurt you at all but they will hurt you! Even he has three or four helmets that you could try on and I horse shoe.

Kandice and  Willow.    

 

We  loved  trying on the hats and I loved the gun . I loved  looking at bullets.

Posted by teacherclass2 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on July 16, 2018

Wednesday 11th July

 

We went to the hawk conservancy and there was a bird flying around the room and  we watched a bird flying around the sky. I learnt that bird spit pellets come out of their

mouth and there are bones inside. We got to open the pellets up and find out what they had been eating. There was vole bones and rat bones.

It was amazing!

Robyn

 

 

When we went to the Hawk Conservancy and we saw some beautiful birds and some ugly ones.  My favorite one was the secretary bird because it had a rainbow beak.

I loved the owl pellet workshop it  was so fun!

from Lucy.

On Wednesday 11th July Beech class  went to the Hawk Conservancy and we looked  in owl pellets to find what animal has been  eating.  My team found a jaw and skull of vole  and also I found a rib .

We watched a owl called Elder fly over are heads and we went to a show which had African scene.

Tilly

We went to the hawk conservancy it was really fun!  We saw

Snowy owls,Barn owls ,tawny owls,speckled owls and great

Grey owls. I was so surprised a Vulture could fly 16000 feet above

earth.It looked like a tiny dot in the sky.

Wynslow

I had a great time at the Hawk Conservancy and Iloved everything because it was all exciting!  It was 1 of the best school trips that I have ever been to. My favourite thing was everything  because I couldn’t wait for the activities.

BEST DAY EVER! My favourite bird was all of them because they are all cute and I loved them.

Robert

We went to the fun hawk conservancy when we went on the bus I fell asleep.  My partner was Jake. We put the bags down then we went in a flash to a building. We saw a really fast barn owl there her name was Elder.  We got to see her feather it was really soft like blossom.  Then we saw a pellet we saw the fascinating bones inside. Then we saw some vultures fighting over food it was funny!  In wings of Africa we saw a fish eagle. After that we saw a 3 year old bird that flew 16000 feet.

Posted by teacherclass2 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on July 13, 2018

Following on from our visit to Northington Farm at the end of the Spring Term we have been investigating where our food comes from.

On Monday we invited our parents into school to share what we have found out.

So yesterday we done a open after noon first we made bread and it took all morning to make.

We made butter as well that was fun. And lots and lots of parents came too.

Jessica

On the 9th of July we had a open afternoon that was for sharing about our topic that’s ‘where does our food come from ?’  We had parents coming to see and it was great because we had people who we did not know and we got to show them all the things we’d been  doing.  We had wheat, barley, sheep  and loads more. We had lots of people coming and it was so good. We ground barley and we made bread which was so great to do in just the morning ! I enjoyed telling the parents all about it. We all had a station to do our speaking about. We talked about where their food came from.

Ruby

I loved showing my Gandad my work. I learnt food  comes from fields like wheat and barley. You can make bread out of wheat.

My group found out about sheep. You can make socks out of wool. You can eat the meat if i’ts from an older sheep it is called mutton if its from a younger sheep it’s called lamb. You can make cheese from sheep and goats milk.

Maria

 

On the 9th for July on Monday in Beech we had a open day . It was great!

I was in  Wheat group and there were 6 other groups. I loved sharing our facts.

Erin

We tried different types of milk like oat and coconut. They were yummy!

 

One day our class were doing a thing that was called where does your food come from? We were in groups of sheep,cows,fruit and veg,wheat  and barley.  We made bread it was delicious we tried it and it was amazing.  Then some parents came over and we had barley thing’s, wheat thing’s and thing’s for the group’s. Lots of people were there it was awesome and fantastic!

Jake

THE HOBBIT

Posted by teacherclass2 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on July 4, 2018

Today we were very lucky to watch the Hobbit – the production was amazing!

Thank you to the PTA for funding this great event.

Today we had a play called the hobbit. It was about some men who went on a adventure. It was extremely funny. I really enjoyed it because it was funny and because it was eye catching. The characters were great and so good . I think they are so good. I want to watch it again and again because it was so good and funny . I would recommend it to my family and friends because they would laugh out loud. I enjoyed it so much and so did all the teachers and there was a scary dragon that was not real. The adventure was to a cave where the dragon lived and it had loads of stones and was bumpy with rocks and was dark. You would enjoy it as much as I did because everything was perfect . I think it was close to the book but this was better than the book . 

Ruby

I  enjoyed  the show  because it was  funny!  I loved it. I was  laughing . 

 I Didn’t like the dragon do you like dragons?

Beth

My favorite part was when BilBo Baggins said take that Charlotte!  My favorite character was Bilbo Baggins because he is funny.      

 The setting is really good and so are the costumes. My favorite costume was Gollums because he Looked funny.

Lucy

We   had an   amazing  act  it was so funny   My favorite part  was he called his sword sting he  went on an adventure to a cave with  a dragon .

The hobbit was very fun because it was funny I really liked it.  My favorite bit was when he said I fired an arrow at a man it was so funny!  My favorite character is  Bilbo Baggins he was so funny and a scaredy cat

Shea

 The play was about I think eleven dwaves who go on an adventure where  they find a dragon and their mission is to kill it and they do near the end of the story.

What’s my favourite character.My favourite character was Oakenshield because at the end he was thankful. I enjoyed it, even when it was sort of scary I liked it a lot.

Jake

The hobbit was so cool it was so intense  I loved everything my favourite part was everything. It’s about some people trying to get their ancestors treasure and there were some things to stop them. There was a spider, not a  normal spider- no no no it was giant and it was venomous!  Some goblins and one giant dragon and they did it with their swords.especially the one that tells you when there is danger near. I think it was so epic everything was brilliant I loved it!

Toby

One day we did a football thing and it was fun because nearly the whole school did it we all made a course for them some of them scored a goal.  We went easy on willow class but only the year rs we went easy on. Then the year 3’s came to do our soccer aid thing and it was really hard because some of them already do football it was hard. Then the year 4,s came to do it that was more harder than the year 3,s but it was still really hard.

Jake

 

We made soccer aid it was really fun and we did it with the older children the best game was scoring goals. We raised £25 it is a huge amount of money isn’t it!

There are different floors to feel.

Lucy

On 12 of June we went into the sensory garden there is a tunnel,stepping  stones,bench and wigwam yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay !    

Tatty

 

The sensory garden has a tunnel , den, bench and stepping  stones .

There are lots of  different textures of the ground and it is very  fun playing in the sensory garden.

 

Faye

   

Our sensory garden has been built and we went in there today and we went in there. It has loads of plants and a tunnel. We all like it and it is only for calm play in fact it is not for playing. It is kind of warm and it feels like you’re in a very safe and calm place. It is so pretty and beautiful. There is fake grass that is for walking up to a wooden den that is only allowed 2 people and there is watery bark. It is so fun to go in there and maybe I might be in there next week. It has a really lovely smell to it from the flowers. On Thursday and Friday oak class get to go in there.

Ruby

The sensory garden is a really fun place but we are not allowed scream or run a round.

We are only allowed to talk quietly and we can walk around.

We can feel how hard and soft they are.
