Welcome to Wilson Class
Summer Term -
April 16th - 25th May 2018
Our topic this term is based on Rohl Dahl's, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.'
In design and technology, we will be creating and redesigning our favourite sweet wrappers.
In English we are continuing our exciting new way of teaching English called the 'Primary Writing Project'. This approach is motivating our children to write the most amazing stories along with, deepening understanding about writing and refining skills so that children make good progress and standards are raised.
The children have produced some fantastic writing so far.
This term we will be focusing on 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' in our writing.
In mathematics pupils will be focusing on strengthening their problem solving skills, while developing in all other areas of the mathematics curriculum. This half term we will be developing our multiplication and division skills further. We will also be investigating measurement and statistics.
This term, in geography we are learning about Europe.
The children are continuing to learn the Djembe... they have been working very hard and we have some very talented children in Year 3.
In religious education, we are learning about, what religions teach us about the natural world and why should we care for it?
Please bring your P.E kit to school on a Monday and take it home on a Friday.
There are lots of lunchtime clubs and P.E lessons for the children to take part in and having their kit in school is essential.
P.E this term is: Athletics and Rounders.
Please note: For health and safety reasons please remove earings on these days.

We purchased our winning books from the Book fair. The children loved their new Pokemon books.
Our library session is on Monday but we would like the children to bring their reading books to school everyday!
4th Jan - 29th March
Term 3 began with a trip on the 11th January to Stockwood Park Museum. We really did have a good day collecting soil samples and investigating the settlements.
The children's behaviour was impeccable and many adults around Stockwood park commented on their superb behaviour.
A proud day for the teachers - Well done Year 3.
For our art day, we created a display based on the value 'belief' - we investigated David Hockney's art and created some wonderful photographic art and iPad art. The children were very focused and even wrote a poem about believing in themselves.
Term 4, despite the cold weather, began with the children enthusiastically taking part in the Race for life. The school raised £1040. Wow! Well done Whitefield Primary School! The children ran, walked jogged and laughed their way around the school field many times. The smiles on their faces was contagious. 20 minutes was quite awhile for them but they never gave up! Another proud moment for the teachers of Whitefield's.
World Book Day was on Wednesday 28th February, we are lucky to be having a special workshop with some great artists. Last year the children danced and acted the day away, I am sure this year will be just as great.
