This week we had our Shakespeare summer fair. It was a huge success and we managed to raise over £600! Thank you very much for supporting this event and coming along. I saw so many children from Year 3 enjoying themselves on the stalls, helping out, performing…I was very proud of them all. I chose a Shakespeare quote for my blog this week and I think it is very fitting for the society our children are growing up in. There are a lot of expectations placed on to their little shoulders, and I encourage them all the time to be proud of who they are and to never change.
We have had a lot to fit in this week but we rose to the challenge…
English - we have continued to look at Poetry and learnt about onomatopoeia. The children also performed a section each of the Water Cycle poem.
Maths - we have looked at telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes and have also looked at time intervals.
Science - we have created our own skeletons and have labelled them with bone names.
Geography - we have started our extreme earth topic and learnt about what is under the surface of the earth’s crust.
R.E. - we have looked at the different parts of the Mass and created a Mass memory card.
P.E. - we continue to practice for Sports Day - next Friday 5th July.
An update on our volcano challenge: the children are really enjoying earning points for their teams. They have all passed the first milestone on the way to the ash cloud and today enjoyed their reward for this - biscuits!! Can I remind you that one of the ways the children can earn points is by reading nightly at home. Please encourage your child to do this.
