The children have really enjoyed red nose day today. We all came dressed in red and with our funny noses. We learnt the reason behind why we had come to school dressed in red. We have wrote persuasion sentences linked to raising money for charity. We bought buns and got to throw sponges at some members of staff.
Thank you for all your generous donations.

Today is Internet Safety Day, we learnt all about keeping ourselves safe on the internet and how important it is to follow the rules.We found out how old we need to be to have some internet accounts such as snapchat, facebook and youtube. We were all very shocked to find out most sites required us to be at least 13.
As part of today we also found out what to do if we felt we were being cyber bullied.
We have made some posters to show how important we feel it is to be safe.
This week we had our last music lesson with Mrs Pearson until we are in Year 4 so we performed what we have learnt to Sapporo.
We have really enjoyed music on a Monday afternoon, we have learnt how to play the recorder, the chime bars and a ukulele.
Wednesday 25th January
Today was a very exciting day because Google expeditions came into school. We got to explore many places through the VR goggles such as the Great Barrier Reef and we went on an Ocean Safari. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
This week in Maths we have been learning about shapes and will continue to do so next week. We will then be revisiting addition using Base 10 and the expanded column method. In English we have learnt the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and have looked at the features of the text. Next week we will be innovating the text focusing on direct speech and prepositions. In our topic we have been learning about our skeletons and how they protect us. We thought of questions that we would like to find out about our skeletons and used the iPads to find the answers. In computing we have been learning to programme a sprite using Scratch. We will be continuing to create algorithms and debug when it is needed.
With spellings now being taught in class, our homework has now changed. Weekly spellings will no longer be sent home and instead we will send an English task home. Homework will still be sent home on a Thursday, to be returned the following Thursday.
Week beginning the 12th December.

In our growth mindset lesson this week we had the flip card challenge. The children had to see if they could flip a card at the edge of the table and then catch it.
We found this tricky at first but after practise and thinking about our class top tips to help each other. We became much better at it. Some of us even had a go at flipping at catching 2 cards at once.
Keep up the hard work and having a positive growth mindset Kyoto!
This week is Big Draw week in school and this year the focus is STEAM. We have lots of exciting activities planned.
