Welcome to Wilson Class
This spring term really has been a busy one.
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.
This term promises to be a busy one too!
We are having our own Race for Life in school - a good cause which I am sure all the children will enjoy.
World Book Day is 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.
Our topic this term is on Scandinavia and we will be reading about
Ottoline and the Yellow cat.
In English we started an exciting new way of teaching English called the 'Primary Writing Project' which aims to motivate children and teachers as writers, 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 'Thor' 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 Geography is about Scandinavia.
The children are learning the Djembe this term... they were very excited when they found out. It will definitely be an interesting term :)
We are investigating light this term.
Our art last term was 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.
Lessons will take place on
Tuesday morning.. Children will be playing badminton
Thursday afternoon will be indoors and we will be doing dance. Children must have their black shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls for this.
Please note: For health and safety reasons please remove earings on these days.
