Spring Term 2016 - Ancient Egyptians

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and happy new year. The children should be rested and ready to return to school this week.

We will be starting our Egyptian topic which will see the children learning about many aspects of this ancient civilisation up to Egypt today. There is a trip to the British Museum, London, including a workshop on mummification. 

We will be learning about the Egyptians, running parallel with Classes 4 and 5. To suit the needs of the children in my class I will planning my lessons from a variety of resources. Therefore, below, I have linked to two medium term plans and I have the facility to choose from either plan.

I am excited to be tailoring the curriculum to suit the children and having visited the British Museum before, I know the trip will be fascinating for all involved.

Mini Olympics June 2017

admin on: Class 3 Blog

Today classes 2 & 3 have had great fun at the annual Mini Olympics organised by William De Ferrers Sport Partnership at the Chetwood Centre. Luckily the weather was kind to us and the clouds covered the sun although it was still very hot. 

The children took part in many different skills based activities and gained individual scores, as well as a combined school score. We are waiting for the final results.

A big thank you to the organisers and the William De Ferrers year 8 children who ran the activities, our year 3 leaders, Millie, Vinny and Jessica G and all the staff who escorted the children.

Rewards Day 29.03.17

admin on: Class 3 Blog

The children started the day with their Chocolate workshop run by Crafty Chocolatiers.  After learning where the chocolate tree grows they had to decorate their chef's hat. The children smelt the cocoa pods and beans and tasted the cocoa nibs, and chocolate from dark to strawberry. They finished the workshop by decorating their box and making their very own chocolate pizza.

After play they practised their graphing skills making a bar chart about Class Three's favourite Easter Egg. the day finished with a session in the hall where they played chocolate related games with Class 5.

Easter Service

admin on: Class 3 Blog

Classes 3, 4 and 5 walked to the church this morning for their Easter service. The children's behaviour was exceptional during the walk and the singing was very delightful.

The Reverend Brenda told the children a charming story about three trees on a hill and what they matured into.

It was a lovely start to a week of planned Easter activities. 

Well done children and thank you to Reverend Brenda.
