Summer Term Topic Web and Newsletter
Although we began the Spring term over google classroom we are leaving it by being back in our classroom.
I am so beyond proud of 3T and all of the work that they have achieved over the last three months. It has been difficult but they have proved that they are extremely resilient.
Upon returning to school the children have settled in well. The smiles on their faces say it all. They are delighted to be able to see their friends and become a team again. We have dove right back into the term learning about fractions, exploring our new book called the Tin Forest and we have been learning about the extreme earth. We have even practised what to do if we ever experience an earthquake. The children certainly loved experiencing this.
As Spring brings a sense of summer into our lives the children have been growing their sunflowers. Making weekly observations of their growth has been great fun for them.
I hope 3T and their families have a wonderful Easter and I look forward to welcoming you all back in the Summer term.
3T have had a fantastic Autumn term. They have all settled in so well to our new routines at school.
We started in September learning about Ancient Egypt which became a fascinating topic to discover. 3T even became Egyptians for the day! Every day the children would come into school with so many facts about Ancient Egypt which we displayed on our topic board. Many children went to the British Museum with their families to see the artefacts. Some said it was very spooky and very cool!
After half term, 3T made poppies for remembrance Sunday and we began preparing for the Advent service. It was a challenge that 3T accepted and did a brilliant job learning their actions, readings, and singing out in the cold.
Autumn 2 brought a whole new aspect of learning for 3T. From learning all about the Stone Age to sewing Christmas stockings. Our book in English was about a boy called UG who lived in the Stone Age, in science we explored rocks, and in our topic, we looked at maps and learned all about the paleolithic, mesolithic, and neolithic periods.
I hope that everyone has a happy Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year. May all your families stay safe and best wishes for 2021.
3T has settled in extremely well over the last few weeks.
We have started learning lots of new things across the curriculum which has been great fun. In English, our book is called Lob. The children are really intrigued to find out who Lob is and they have come up with some amazing ideas as to who they think he could be. The children are finding our topic on Ancient Egypt fascinating. We have all our facts displayed in our classroom and we hope to add more to it as we go through the term. In maths, we are concentrating on our place value adding two-digit and three-digit numbers. Science has been eventful as we have conducted experiments around the school on forces and magnets.
We look forward to continuing our learning throughout this term with plenty of enthusiasm.
