Summer 2 Week 6 – DT

Stars of the Week: Astrid and Oscar

This week in DT, we made fruit skewers. We have learnt lots about healthy eating in DT and PSHE across the school year. We had the choice of grapes, bananas, strawberries and raspberries. First, we cleaned our tables and washed our hands thoroughly before handling the fruit. We used the knife safely to cut the fruit into smaller pieces. We then pierced the fruit through the skewer. We had lots of fun in this lesson!

Summer 2 Week 4 – Sports Week

Stars of the Week: Ethan and Orla

This week across the school, we have had Sports Week! It’s been a really fun week, where we have had Sports Day and Rounders. We have competed within our teams and we have shown excellent sportsmanship. In Sports Day, we competed in a variety of races, from the egg and spoon, to obstacles, to relays. In rounders, we showed great listening to learn the rules of the game and we tried our best. Thank you also to friends and family who were able to show their support at Sports Day.

Summer 2 Week 3 – DT

Stars of the Week: Xanthe and Ari

Our topic in DT this half term is healthy eating, and this week in DT we designed our own food packaging for the crumble that we are going to make in a few lessons time. We looked at current packaging of crumbles sold in the supermarkets and we evaluated the packaging. We discussed what we liked, what we didn’t like, what colours worked well together and then our own design ideas. We also thought of some persuasive writing that we could include in our packaging to describe the crumble.

Summer 2 Week 2 – PSHE

Stars of the Week: Nathan L and Luna

Last Friday, we had PSHE Day at Cathedral School, where all of our subjects had a PSHE element to them. In maths, we learnt about the value of money and budgeting. In English, we reflected on our achievements and we wrote about something we have achieved and are proud of. In art, we created a family tree and drew our loved ones. We also participated in meditation and mindfulness activities throughout the day.

Summer 2 Week 1 – English

Stars of the Week: Adeel and Ben

This week in English, we have looked at onomatopoeia and poetry. We first chose a location, such as a beach, city or our home, then we mind mapped the sounds of that location. For example, the sounds in our home could be the toaster popping up toast, the sizzling of the frying pan, the beeping of the washing machine, the blaring of the TV. We then put these sounds into a poem.

I hope you all had a lovely half term break and are ready for the last half term of Class 3!

Summer 1 Week 6 – English

Stars of the Week: Jayvaughn and Nyheika

This week in English, we have finished reading our class text, ‘A Boy and a Bear on a Boat.’ The class have loved this story and laughed along at every mishap on the boy and the bear’s adventure. The past couple of lessons, we have drafted and then started writing our own sequel. We have focused on using some direct speech in our writing to progress the story along. We have also tried to include some humour in our writing, and short sentences for effect.

I can’t believe that we are at the end of Summer term 1! I hope you all have a lovely and restful half term. See you all in June for our last half term of Class 3.

Summer 1 Week 5 – Art

Stars of the Week: Nathan A and Annabelle

This week in art, we have created a painting in response to Magritte’s work on Surrealism. We have spent the past couple of lessons looking at his work and then planning our own artwork, influenced by him. First we drew the stencil of the animal for the foreground. We then drew and painted the foreground. We waited for the paint to dry, then drew and painted the background.

Summer 1 Week 4 – Maths

Stars of the Week: Xanthe and Adeel

This week, we have been developing our understanding of telling the time. We recapped quarter past, half past and quarter to first. We then moved onto telling the time to 5 minute intervals. We have been working really hard and persevering, even when we have found it tricky. Today, we are learning about months and years, including how many days are in each month and when the leap years are.
