Autumn 1 Week 3 – English

Stars of the Week: Kayden and Ruby.

This week in Class 3 we channeled our inner “sarcastic” selves and put on performances to showcase to the whole class. We recreated a part of our book “Oliver and the Seawigs” (which we are all loving) and acted out the parts of Oliver, Iris and the sarcastic seaweed. We had no idea that our lovely Class 3 could be so sarcastic! There were star performances from all pupils and we cannot wait to see them in their next performances in the West End.

Please see below their brilliant work:

Next week in Maths we are learning how to order numbers.

Autumn 1 Week 2 – Science

Stars of the Week: Ava and Lennon.

This week in Science, Class 3 have developed their understanding of a balanced diet. We have identified all of the food groups and discussed how much of each food group you should eat, in relation to the ‘Eat Well’ plate. We then thought about the meals that we enjoy eating and which food groups they belong to. As part of this lesson, we drew out our meals onto plates and identified each food group.
This task links to their homework of logging a food diary which is due in on Tuesday 20th September.
Next week in Maths in Class 3, we are learning how to find 1, 10 or 100 more or less than a specific number.

Autumn 1 Week 1 – PSHE

Stars of the Week: Noah and Joshua

We have had such a wonderful first week back at school in Class 3!
This week, Class 3 have been learning about healthy eating and snacks in PSHE, and different food groups in Science. In our PSHE lesson, we discussed the choices we make when choosing snacks and what our favourite snacks are. We then worked as a group to present our thoughts on this topic.
We hope you enjoy reading about our favourite snacks!

Summer 2 Week 5 – Hansel and Gretel

Stars of the Week: Chiugo and Daniela

Well done to Chiugo and Daniela for writing such detailed, expressive scenes from Hansel and Gretel, and bringing the action to life with your choice of adverbs!

We have been enjoying reading different versions of Hansel and Gretel this term, including retellings by Anthony Browne and Michael Morpurgo, and we’ve learnt the version of the story that appears in Englebert Humperdinck’s opera! Another blog post will follow with a video of our opera project.

We hope you enjoy Daniela and Chiugo’s writing:

Next week in Class 3… We will be making our healthy meals in DT, inspired by the gingerbread house in Hansel and Gretel!

Summer 2 Week 4 – Sports Week!

Stars of the Week: Marcia and Cameron J

Class 3 have had a fantastic Sports Week so far! They have worked hard learning to play new games, such as kickball, and have shown fantastic sportsmanship and put in lots of effort during Sports Day. We’re really looking forward to our fitness session later today!
Here are some pictures of the week so far.

Next week in Class 3… we will continue finding out about Muslim beliefs and practices around prayer in RE. In geography, we will be learning to read maps of the London Underground.

Summer 2 Week 3 – Tuesley Farm

Stars of the Week: Krislyn and Thea

This week, Class 3 visited Tuesley Farm and picked strawberries, raspberries and blueberries! Back at school, we used some of the strawberries to make fruit crumble.

We have learnt such a lot this week about the British countryside, food technology and our ‘plants’ topic in science!

Next week in Class 3… We will be participating in Sports Week!

Here’s the crumble recipe, if you’d like to recreate it at home!

Serves 4 (measurements are very approximate – adjust to taste)
Equipment: approx. 20cm ovenproof dish, or 4 individual pie dishes; knife and chopping board; mixing bowl and wooden spoon
Filling: Strawberries, cornflour, sugar
Topping: 1/2 cup plain flour, 1/2 cup oats, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/3 cup soft butter, 1 or 2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

First, hull the strawberries and cut larger ones into pieces.
Mix a small amount of sugar and cornflour together and coat the strawberries by tossing them in the mixture.
Put the strawberries in an ovenproof dish, about half full.

For the crumble topping, place all the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. The butter should be evenly distributed and the mixture should be fairly crumbly. If it looks much too dry, add another tablespoon of soft butter.

Spoon the crumble topping over the strawberries. Place in the oven for 35-45 minutes, or until lightly golden brown, at about 180C.

Leave to cool a bit and enjoy!
