Year 3 started Forest School this week with Mr Brown. They had to scavenge for bits of slate to make spears. Look at how amazing they are. And don't worry... we won't let them bring them home! surprise

Thursday 2nd November

Welcome back to school. The children have had a great week, the Halloween disco was a success and the children were suitably scary!

We are continuing with the Stone Age for a few more weeks and we will be inviting you all in to see our work and listen to a song we have been learning - watch this space for dates.

We have started our new class reader - The Firework Maker's Daughter by Philip Pullman. If you have a copy of the book, please can your child bring it into school? It is a story about a girl called Lila and the adventures she has. Ask your child to tell you about the book and the characters so far. While on the subject of reading, we have been really pleased with the amount of reading the children have been doing at home, it is so important to develop a love of reading and we really appreciate your help and support with this.

 

We also started our new computing course this week, the first lesson was all about resilience. The children had to work in teams to create a tower to hold a book for 30 seconds. It was trickier than they thought.
