Class 3 2020-2021

Class 3 
Summer Term 1
Welcome back everyone!
We hope that you have had a truly lovely Easter break where you have hopefully been able to safely reconnect with family and friends in amongst the contrasting weather that we have seen over the past few weeks!
We are so looking forward to this half term with you all - hoping that you are feeling refreshed and ready for a jam-packed fun term ahead! We leave the wonderful world of food behind us from last half term and move forward to learning all about 'The Vikings' and their invasion of Britain deepening our understanding of the British history events that we have already covered.
PE will continue to be on Mondays and Fridays so please come to school in your PE clothes on those days. Spellings for the half term can be found below. Spelling rules will be explored on Mondays in class with a review taking place at the end of each week. Additional spelling assignments will be set on Edshed each week for you to explore. Reading books will continue to be changed on Mondays and Friday so that they can be safely quarantined within school. Remember to keep trying to carry out some reading activities on Reading Eggs too! Maths activities will continue to be set on TT Rockstars and Edshed so make sure you check out those if you can each week.
Here's to a bright, warm and memorable term ahead where our classroom is full of vibrant smiles, supportive learners and exciting learning experiences!
Best wishes,
Mrs Hill and Mrs Maxwell

Past Science Activities
We created lemon batteries to further understand how electrical current works. The squeals of excitement could be heard from Mrs Lambert's office!
Ask us all about it- and thank you for your enthusiasm and hard work Class 3!
It has been fabulous to see your 'Biscuithenges' that you have been busy creating at home - well done and we hope that you had fun in eating it afterwards!
During this week, we have explored the theories behind why Stonehenge was built and became Neolithic designers where we tried to create our very own and unique 'Biscuithenge'! We found it really tricky trying to replicate the different stone structures that are displayed. The wind wasn't on our side either and we had to show great perseverance to not give up. Here's a taster of how we got on!
This week our stone age topic has had us researching and reporting on the discoveries of the neolithic settlement of Skara Brae and looking at cave art. We created some of our own using our table caves and sandpaper stones. Ask us all about it! 
This week in English, we read the text 'How to wash a woolly mammoth' to help us in writing our own set of instructions for washing a prehistoric animal of our choice. One of our activities was to have a go at washing a very dirty animal-toy in class so that we could explore prepositions, prepositional phrases and imperative verbs.

Backpack Project

Thanks to you and your kind donations we have managed to fill and complete 22 backpacks and the remaining items helped to finish 10 more. The 32 backpacks have been sent to Mary`s Meals and will be on their way to children who need them. By providing the children with the equipment they need to go to school it also means that they get a hot, cooked meal every day. So what an achievement and what a difference it will make to those children. Once again, thank you.


**Flash News**

We are still going to collect children`s summer clothes, sandals and flip flops (including adults) and any old backpacks you may have so we can donate to future backpacks

There will be a plastic box outside the school`s front door so please put anything you would like to donate in there.


Many thanks

Mrs. Waller
