It has been a brilliant Spring term, full of exciting learning and new experiences.
Use your home learning as an opportunity to look back and celebrate all the fantastic things you have learned this term.
We hope that you have incredible time during your two week holiday and we look forward to seeing everyone refreshed and ready for an action pack Summer term!

We have had a brilliant week celebrating Science Week!
In class, we drew the human skeleton, then we created bones out of salt dough and labelled the names of the bones in our skeleton.
We voted for a member of the Green Team - a child who is in charge of recycling for our class.
World Book Day
We had an absolutely fabulous World Book Day!
During the day, we had a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory theme.
We created synonyms for 'delicious' in order to create our own advertisement for Willy Wonka.
We made some fantastic chocolate and we even debated the working conditions of Umpa Lumpas.
We also read with year 5!
It was a great day!
Calling for Year 3 singers.
We would like as many children as possible to help Year 4 with their production on Tuesday 27th March at 5.30pm.
Our class assembly is on 16.03.18.
We would love to see you there at 1:35 in the main hall.
Thursday 15th March is World Book Day.
We are very excited to see everyone in their costumes!
This week is National Science Week - keep your eyes peeled to see the exciting activities that we have done this week!
In English, we have started a new unit based on Fantasy Tales! We have been working hard to learn our text 'Elf Road' we did a fantastic drama activity where the children acted as characters or furniture in the story. We even voted for our favourite act!
Next week, we will continue to learn how to punctuate direct speech and start to write our own Fantasy Tale!
As part of World Maths Day, we worked on our rapid recall of multiplication and division facts.
We played lots of fantastic maths games and we had a great day!
We had a fantastic time during Make Your Heart Bounce Day!
The bouncy castle was great fun and we also made games for our classmates to play.
What a very busy half term we have had!
This half term in English we developed our writing skills by looking at different description techniques we can use in our writing to have an impact on the reader. We used these skills when innovating a journey tale based on a story from another culture. We have learnt to write sentences of 3, use similes, write a 'show, don't tell' sentence and use adjectives and adverbs effectively.
In maths this half term, we have learnt written methods for both multiplication and division. We worked our way through different steps where we started very practically using equipment, then reviewed written methods learnt from last year before introducing new methods which are taught in Year 3! We all did really well moving on to our next step in learning and challenging ourselves.
In topic, we have really enjoyed finding out about South America, especially the Amazon. The children used the Geography skills to locate different countries and continents on maps. We have explored the human and physical features of different parts of South America and made comparisons to our own country.
In PE, the children wanted to learn the haka as they felt this linked to the tribes which lived in the Amazon. We focused on learning to dance in unison! In computing we have been using textease to create a slideshow using all of the facts we have learnt about South America.
It has been a very busy but exciting and enjoyable half term. It is great to see so many of the class progressing with their learning and building their confidence.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Mrs Watkins, Miss Askew and Mrs Moyles
