It has been a pleasure teaching Year Three and we have both really enjoyed our time with them. We are now handing over the baton to Miss Barton and Mr Frewin! We will both still be popping in to see how the children are getting on and we will of course be supporting the children as they get to know their new teachers, and the teachers as they get to know the school and class.
Last week, like all weeks, was a busy fun packed one!
On Monday we had great fun making our Christmas lanterns with wicker. Next week, we will finish covering them with tissue paper.
Our English work has continued around the book 'Library Lion'. We have started to plan our own stories using the structure of the original book - the children have come up with some inventive ideas of their own! Our maths has centered around addition, subtraction and estimating.
In geography we have learnt more about rivers – watching bird’s eye views of rivers and labelling features. The children should be able to tell you the vocabulary they have learnt and explain to you how oxbow lakes are formed.
In RE we have been learning about the covenant God made with Noah after the Great Flood. We talked about the kinds of agreements that exist in the modern world.
In music, we have been continuing to learn about rhythm and rhythm notation, as well as looking at different kinds of rhythm and drumming from around the world: last week samba, this week Indian tabla!
Children continued their Escher work with Mr Dray in art, and drew self-portraits with Miss Barton. See if you can identify whose these are:
Over this term we have spent time playing games to help us all learn times tables. We have really enjoyed the Percy Parker songs. They are available on You Tube - if you Google ‘Percy Parker’ you can play them at home. On Friday we sent home the Times Table Rock Stars instructions and log ins as many of the children say they can’t remember their password!
All the very best!
Miss Rowe and Miss Penny
