Welcome back, I hope everyone has had a lovely Easter break.
We have been straight back into things this week in Class 3..
In English we have started to look at Beatrix Potter. On Monday we found out exactly who she was and gathered lots of information about her life and the books she has published. We have now moved on to looking at one of her more famous stories (Peter Rabbit) and are writing character descriptions as well as writing letters to Mr McGregor from Peter Rabbit apologising for ruining all his lovely vegetables.
We are looking back at our work on shape. Children are using their knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes to create patterns and artwork as well as strengthening their knowledge on the key properties of different 3D shapes.
Our science topic this term is on Animals including Humans – we started this on Monday and were looking at offspring and adults, noticing how some animals change as they get older due to their habitat and surroundings.
Nurturing nurses is also a new topic for us this term. We will start this on Thursday by looking at Florence Nightingale. The key questions will be Who is Florence Nightingale? Why is she famous? and What does she look like? The children seem to be really excited to start this.
Thanks to everyone who made the maths evening last night. I am hoping to run another one in the next week or so. Sorry for the short notice and the delay in getting these workshops to you but hopefully you will still find them of some use as we approach the KS1 SAT period.
A quick reminder that PE this half term will be on a Tuesday, so PE kits do need to be in for then and a new homework menu will go out as usual this Friday. Spellings have changed slightly – the children will get a spelling challenge as homework each week focusing around the spelling rule we are learning in class. Their spellings on a Friday will make use of this rule and include words that they have been learning during the week.
