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.

Thank you.

Thursday, Friday and Monday afternoons Class 3 have had the fantastic opportunity to make a softie, using fruit they had drawn and painted. This  would not have been possible without the help of parents who rallied around me and came in to thread, unpick and support the children.

I am very pleased with the results as I have seen the children's sewing skills develop since the last time sewing and importantly the children are happy with their results.

I have spoken to Oliver's mum and looking at the diary for this term and I will hopefully be squeezing in a DT project towards the end of the half term. This time it will include cooking and smoothie making so a different set of skills will be required. Oliver's mum will inform you of more details nearer the time.

Prepare yourselves they will be coming home with some of this art work in the not too distant future.

Thank you for supporting your child, class and mself.

Class 3 will be sewing again on Thursday and Friday afternoon so I would be most grateful for any parent who is willing to help thread needles and enjoys working in a cheerful noisy environment.

World Book Day - Take 2

admin on: Class 3 Blog

On Thursday 8th March we continued sharing our favourite books. By coincidence two children had the same book, The Midnight Gang by David Walliams.

While discussing the story the children became very animated about their dreams and how they could fulfill them. They decided that they wanted to write their own chapter of for The Midnight Gang so on Friday after lots of discussion they are authors of their own chapters.

This was totally independent work (no adult help) that was peer assessed and edited in the afternoon.

I am very proud of the chapters they created and the attitude to their work this morning and afternoon, well done Class 3.

Please  see the gallery for a copy of each child's chapter.

I hope you all have a good weekend and look forward to seeing you on Monday

Mrs Adams
