Summer 1 Week 6 – Art

Stars of the Week: Albert and Arabella

This week in Class 3 we have worked really hard on our assessments. In between our assessments we have enjoyed our art lesson on surrealism. We recreated Dali’s ‘The Elephants.’ We used oil pastels to create the elephant and watercolour paints for the background.

Have a lovely half term!

Summer 1 Week 5 – Collective Worship

Stars of the Week: all of Class 3!

Well done to Class 3 for their fabulous collective worship assembly on Wednesday. All of the class worked really hard to memorise their lines and the lyrics to the song. Thank you also to the parents and carers for coming along to support, and for helping them learn the song at home.

Next week at school is assessment week, please spend some time over the weekend on Times Tables Rockstars.


Summer 1 Week 3 – Art

Stars of the Week: Jacob A and Ava

Our topic in art this half term is surrealism. We have discussed what surrealism means and we have analysed pieces of artwork which express surrealism. We have created a piece of surrealist artwork based on Rene Magritte’s dove painting. This week, we have started to plan another piece of artwork using the same techniques.

Please see post below of the class collective worship song.

I hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend, celebrating the King’s coronation.


Summer 1 Week 2 – Maths

Stars of the Week: Heidi and Zein

This week, in maths we have continued our work on fractions. We have become more confident in finding a fraction of an amount. We know what the numerator and denominator represents and how to share objects and groups into equal parts. We have used our knowledge of our times tables to help us.

If you are finding fractions tricky and are not confident in your times tables, please spend some extra time on Times Tables Rockstars this weekend.

Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend!

Summer 1 Week 1 – Swimming

Stars of the Week: Rory and Anusha

This week, Class 3 started their swimming lessons. Despite some of their nerves, everyone tried their best to swim a length of the pool. Every pupil came out of the pool with a smile on their face. They all listened well to the instructors and were sensible.

Please remember that every pupil needs to bring in their swimming costume/trunks, a towel and a swimming hat every Wednesday so that they can go swimming. Goggles are also advised.

Spring 2 Week 5 – English

Stars of the Week: Sam and Phoebe 

This week, in english we have been focusing on newspaper articles. We wrote an article about a massive diamond which was found in a farmer’s field. As part of this article, we interviewed 3 people and included their thoughts into our writing as direct speech. The articles were written brilliantly and I was very impressed with all of their work.

Next week, in maths we are continuing with measurement and the perimeter of shapes.


Spring 2 Week 3 – Assessment week

Stars of the Week: Elena and Jacob W.

We have had assessment week at school this week. Class 3 have worked really hard in their assessments and shown lots of determination. In English we have continued looking at newspaper reports, and in Maths we have continued studying money.

If you have found Maths difficult, please spend some time this weekend on adding and subtracting money and recognising the coins.
