Welcome to Class 3.

Welcome back to an exciting term, following our half term break.  Hopefully you have all enjoyed a restful Easter, filled with plenty of Easter eggs!  This term, although relatively short, will be a fun filled one with plenty of learning opportunities. SATs for year 6 commence on  Monday 13th May and the last one takes place on Thursday 16th May. Please do not hesitate to contact  me if there are any aspects of the SATs you would like to discuss.

 

In Maths we will continue to develop our reasoning and problem solving, as well as continuing to practice our arithmetic- on arithmetic Friday. We will be looking at converting units and positioning in up to four quadrants. We will then apply our knowledge of angles to solve a variety of problems.

 

Topic work will be based upon The Ancient Egyptians and will allow the children plenty of opportunity to be creative. They will have the opportunity to design Egyptian masks and create  them from clay. They will also discover what life was like in Ancient Egypt and find out about the role of mummification and the discovery of Tutankhamun. Using geographical skills, we will explore the human and physical features of Egypt and create our own holiday brochure-style fact file.

 

Mrs Rhodes will continue to teach the children art this term and will be focusing upon the key skills necessary. In R.E we will also be looking at Art and how religion is demonstrated through art.

 

 The children will continue to have spellings and topic based homework. It would be extremely beneficial to your child if you could continue to support them with this and encourage them to continue to read at home.  I have been extremely impressed with the effort the children have applied to their homework over the past terms and they should be very proud of this. Topic work will be completed every two weeks- dates will be given on the homework sheet in their homework book. Spelling tests will be conducted on a Wednesday.

 

 

Please feel free to discuss any area of the curriculum with me at the beginning or end of each school day.

Class 3 have had  a lovely day- dressing as evacuees and bringing four items with them for their journey to their new homes in Devon. They painted landscapes, wrote postcards home and baked some delicious war time biscuits. They really embraced the era when they had to hide under their desks every time they heard an air raid siren and listened to popular war time songs- discussing their meaning. This brought to a close a very enjoyable topic- A Child's War.

Class 3 have worked very hard to produce some fantastic projects, based on our topic- A Child's War.

Class 3 enjoying taking part in an afternoon of science to celebrate science week. They participated in four investigations and particularly enjoyed discovering about non- Newtonian liquid.

Class 3 enjoyed making pancakes and eating them! This helped us to apply our knowledge of measure.

Class 3 enjoying their science in the sunshine. Testing the effects of friction on different surfaces.

Class 3 enjoy reading about what is happening in the world, this links to our class discussions on topics watched on Newsround.

Class 2 and 3 had an exciting trip to Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio. This was in  preparation for some exciting narrative writing. They  all had an amazing time. Lillie said she especially enjoyed looking at Hogwarts Castle. Lucy enjoyed going through the forbidden forest and Casie enjoyed finding the stamps to fill her Harry Potter passport. Watch out for a selection of our wonderful wand advertisements!

Our School Choir Club enjoyed performing at the Spilsby Rotary Carol Concert at St James Church Spilsby on Friday 7th December. They all had a wonderful time performing:  It's Snowing & Never Enough. Well done to all the choir for all their hard work rehearsing over the past term.

Class 3 had a fantastic afternoon out at Primary Athletics at Skegness Grammar School. Well done for an excellent performance. We have some super fast runners in our team!

Our trip to RAF Cranwell 

Remembrance day poetry- fantastic use of figurative language in some very thought provoking poems. The children worked sensitively to produce excellent work, commemorating 100 years since the end of WW1.

Class 3  Mexican Day- Parents and carers were invited to share with the children the work they had been learning throughout the term. The children presented their wonderful project homework and even sang a song that they had created themselves. The visitors participated in a craft activity- making dream catchers. The children prepared guacamole, Mexican chilli and delicious biscuits.

Class 3 had great fun making sausage rolls to celebrate Lincolnshire day. They used their maths skills to estimate when measuring-great mathematical discussions developed! The rest of the school enjoyed sampling the sausage rolls in the afternoon!
