Weekly Update

On Friday, the most amazing thing happened, I got star of the week!

I got it because I asked lots of relevant and thought provoking questions on our trip last Wednesday to the Eco Centre in Southport. Also, due to excellent behaviour within all lessons and around school.

On Monday, it was the first day back after half term and we were excited to see what we were learning about. We learnt that we are learning about the Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura.

In maths, we look at column subtraction and how we exchange so that we can find the answer.

In music, we are practicing for our Christmas performance.

On Tuesday, it was the Halloween disco, it was amazing. I dressed up as Mildred Monday (from the worst witch), there were lots of great costumes there. I hope that you all had a Spooktacular Halloween.

On top table I am going to choose IH who I want to say thank you for helping me write the blog.

GF (star of the week).

I would like to say how proud I am of the Y3 children with their great behaviour and attitude towards our first class trip. We were complimented by the centre for the engagement by the children and the great questions that they produced during the different activities on the day.
You deserve a pat on the back!

New Term Update

This half term, we are going to be exploring the book Stone Age Boy. We will use this across the curriculum to deepen our understanding of the Stone Age. The book was written by our author in the spotlight Satoshi Kitamura and is filled with engaging pictures as well as informative text for us to use and learn from.

We are going to be producing writing about the book in English, which will first be a diary entry as the main character of the book.

In history, we will be looking at how Stone Age people lived and learn about settlements so that we can understand what life was like then and compare it to our lives.

Science is fun-filled as we are learning about magnets and their uses, with some investigations to help us understand how they work.

I look forward to the excitement this half term will bring.
