Hello everyone.

Hi everyone, sorry for any confusion. Skip2BFit is on Tuesday so I have sent children home with their PE kits. They need to come in these on Tuesday morning and will stay in them the whole day.

Also a quick homework reminder. I will be collecting the homework books in next Friday to see the homework that children have been doing over this half term so any last additions need to be done by then. Also the spellings have changed and you may have noticed that some words in the spelling list are not the same ones as they have had in their spellings at home. They will, however, have the same spelling rule in them. This is so I can see if children have managed to grasp the spelling rule or if they are just reciting words from their spelling list without realising the importance of the rule.

Have a lovely weekend all,
Miss Clough.

Times Tables Rock Stars!

tt rockstars

We have just launched a new exciting way to practise the times tables at home and in School. All children in classes 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been given login details, picked their rock names and created their avatar. Pupils have been set in their year groups into different bands depending on which times tables they are working on.

All pupils have taken home a letter with their login details. These can also be found inside their homework books, alongside details about which times tables to work on that week.

Times Tables Rock Stars

This has been hugely popular and the Times Tables Rock Stars after-school Club is full this term.

Week 3 in Class 3.

Maths

We have been continuing our work on Place Value this week. Children have been using a Place Value chart and ordering numbers based on the amount of tens and ones in each number.

English

This week we started our Scratchy Rabbit Challenge. Children have already planned their stories and created and discussed their main characters and the setting. We hope to have these written up and up on the website by next week for anybody who wants to read some the children’s fantastic work.

RE

We were looking at the gifts that Christians believe God has given them this week. There were several suggestions such as ‘beautiful days’, ‘life’, ‘food’ and ‘animals to care for’. We created some posters for our in class display which has really started to brighten up the classroom.

 

Topic

Children were locating Shrewsbury and Ironbridge this week to start off our work on Ironbridge. We first looked at our location in the world. Then looked at the UK and then a local map where we followed the River Severn from Shrewsbury to Ironbridge.

 

Homework books have gone home as usual.

Enjoy the weekend, Miss Clough.

Class 3 weekly news.

English

In English we have been looking at using adjectives to describe. We have started to understand that an adjective, coupled with a noun is called an expanded noun phrase (big, blue butterfly) and have been trying to write our own. We will be starting the latest Scratchy Rabbit challenge next week and using noun phrases to help add detail and interest to our writing.

 

Maths

We have been looking at partitioning two digit numbers in various ways this week. We have used the part whole model and classroom resources to support our learning. Children are starting to understand that 2-digit numbers can be partitioned into various way (24 – 20 + 4, 10 + 14) and we will be looking at writing number sentences to support what we know. Any extra work on partitining would be really useful for the children going into next week.

Science

We started our science topic on materials this week. We were looking at natural materials in Forest school and focused on the difference between man made and natural materials in the classroom. Children have been encouraged to describe the properties of materials and there are some really useful games on purple mash to support children’s understanding if you would like to have a go at home.

 

Spelling investigations went home home today and don’t forget to be starting to look at some of the homework tasks on the homework menu.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Clough.

Welcome back!

Welcome back!

Just a quick message to say a huge welcome back to all the children and parents from Class 3. Our main topics this half term are Ironbridge, materials and their properties and the circus so feel free to have a look at these at home. Homework menus, spellings, reading book and records along with books bags will all be going home towards the end of this week.

 

Thanks, Miss Clough.

Crime Scene in Class 3!

CRIME SCENE ALERT! Some of you may have already heard about a very serious incident in Class 3 this week. The scene was all cornered off on Monday morning and I have a class full of detectives who are now collecting evidence and trying to come to the bottom of the situation. All we know so far is some brownies (left by myself on Friday evening) have disappeared. We collected hand prints this morning and will be questioning all major suspects later this week. Supsects are as follows: Mr McGrath, Mrs Hillidge, Mrs Beard, Mr Lewis and the Cleaner. The children have been very excited to be involved. We shall try our best to keep you updated with proceedings. IMG_0935
