Wow! What a busy week it has been. I have thoroughly enjoyed this week with the children - I hope they have enjoyed it as much as I have.
The class finally had the opportunity to watch their volcanoes erupt yesterday. It was incredibly exciting for all of the children. We also took some time to enjoy our Forest School area too.
This morning, the children all gathered together for our Christingle service; it wasn't quite the same as being at church, but it was still lovely for the whole school to come together.
Unfortunately, the wind was too strong and kept blowing the candles out, so we had to light them when we returned to class.
What a term it's been! The children have worked incredibly hard during the first term in Key Stage 2 and I'm very proud of them.
Have a safe and relaxing break.
Year 3 have been working hard again this week. We've been reading more of The Iron Man and the children have created designs and instructions for how to trap the space-bat-angel. I also shared a couple of the newspaper reports they wrote about a new dinosaur discovery.
In science, the children have also learnt about Mary Anning and the important role she played in the early discoveries of fossils. I've already heard that some of the children have gone home and told their parents all about her - lovely!
Last week, the children also created some lovely Christmas stocking decorations to add to our school hall. They really lovely on display and add a bit of festive sparkle!
Have a lovely weekend.
This week, we have been learning about similes in English and using them to describe different parts of the Iron Man (from Ted Hugh's book).
We have also been learning more basketball skills in PE and learning about how fossils are formed in Science. We even had a go at making our own!
Our Christmas hamper is looking amazing, but we haven't sold many tickets. If you have managed to sell some, please send the money and ticket stubs into school next week.
Have a lovely weekend!
