Class 3 DVD

Good Morning everyone.

Thursday this week we will be hopefully getting the chance to watch a Class DVD to end the term. The Class vote was ‘The Greatest Showman’, however, I am aware that this DVD is a PG. If you have any concerns or would like your child to not watch this film could you please contact myself or the school office.

Thanks, Miss Clough.

Class 3 Goal Commentary

Yesterday, I uploaded the videos of the children in Class 3 doing their Harry Kane goal commentary from England’s first match (just in time it would seem). I sent the links directly to parents so if anyone has not got their child’s, please do let me know.One of our personal highlights from this years world cup was MrMcGrath’s inspirational clip which was aimed at developing thechildren’s enthusiasm and performance to add interest to theirown commentary.
Although this was recorded for Class 3, it is just too good not toshare.



Class 3 News.


We have been continuing our work on time in Maths this week. Children have been encouraged to secure their work on reading and writing the time to the nearest 5 minutes, find the duration of time and problem solve based on their increasing knowledge.



Due to the World Cup starting this week, we deciding to make our English work based around Harry Kane’s last minute goal for England. As you can imagine the children have responded really well to this. We watched the goal in class and then created a bank of ‘wow phrases’ to describe each stage. Children went on to write their own goal recounts which we have since recorded. I wanted the children to work on their speaking and listening skills as well as performance skills to make it exciting and interesting for their audience. I shall try to upload these onto our school YouTube channel so that you can share our experience.


We have been continuing our work on the Stone Age for history and have now started looking at the Bronze Age. Children created a fact file all about the differences of the two Ages and will go on to create some art work next week on Stonehenge.


In Science we have started looking at plants. We are currently conducting an experiment to see what a plant needs in order to grow well. The children are each in different teams and are looking at soil, air, water and light. We will observe our plants over the next few weeks and record the changes we notice.


Chidlren will need to take their PE kits home next week and come into school on Thursday in them ready for sports day. Spellings should all be in their homework boooks and just a reminder that you have a few weeks left to complete any homework off the homework menu which should also be in children’s homework books.


Have a nice weekend!

We we had a great day celebrating the royal wedding on Friday. The weather made it all the more enjoyable. The children all looked amazing and in Class 3 we decided to write our own vows and wedding promises.

Y2 assessment information.

Hi all, I just wanted to let you know that we will be doing our first SAT’s paper next Wednesday. The last one will be on the Monday before our trip on the 22nd. I have placed no pressure on the children and it will be done under relaxed, normal circumstances so as not to make children anxious and stressed. Lots of parents were asking so I thought I would make you all aware. Many Thanks, Miss Clough.


We have been really busy this week as usual in Class. We have properly started our Stone Age topic and the children have been linking their knowledge to their English work and using the I-pads to do lots of incredible research. I was amazed at how much the children have already found out at home.

We made a list of things that we have today, focusing on the topics – entertainment, travel and food and then considered what it would be like if all of these things were taken away from us. What would we eat? What would we do for fun? How would we get around? Children were fascinated by the idea that once these things were not around the way they are today.

We haven’t managed to write the diary entry yet and so will be doing this first thing next week.


In PE children have been playing tennis and learning how to control and use the rackets and balls. Can I please remind everyone that the children do need their PE kit in for Monday as lots of children are not being able to complete their mile and it is important they do this each week to avoid any disappointment.

Already hearing great things about the homework children are working on and I can’t wait to see this in the next few weeks.

Thanks, Miss Clough.
