Samba dance - inspired by our work on Peru

Bread making for Year 3 now ....... yum!!!!
Year 4 finished their work in DT by making their bread.  They worked together to make their dough, then decided on whether to add raisins, chocolate or cheese.  They made their bread into various shapes and then of course enjoyed tasting it afterwards!

Castle class had a great day at Shrewsbury Museum being Rock detectives.  They learnt all about the propertiesof rocks by conducting an investigation about their colour, if they absorbed water, how hard they were and much more.  They were  taught 3 new words - igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary.  They will be learning more about this in our science lessons after half term. 

 

After lunch, we went for a walk around Shrewsbury to spot examples of different types of rocks and how they had been used. I wonder if they could point them out to you next time you go into town!

As part of our DT topic we have been looking at our favourite types of bread.  Children were asked to evaluate it in terms of its appearance, smell and taste.  Next week, we will be looking at a range of breads and tasting them with the aim of making our own.

Our favourite bread

Today, children had the chance to interview Mr Roughan, one of our school governors.  Children have been learning about the moon landing, as this happened 50 years ago. Mr Roughan watched this event when it happened so was able to tell us all about it and how he felt.  Hopefully children will be able to use this information when writing their newspaper reports.

Man on the moon!

We are increasing the daily activity of children by introducing the daily mile.  This aims to improve their overall health and well being.  Please ensure your child brings their trainers every day.
Castle class had a visit from the Fire Service.  This was to educate them about fire safety.  I hope that they have come home to talk to you about their escape plan, in the event of a fire and reminding you to test your fire alarm weekly!

Welcome to the Autumn term.  We hope you have had a lovely, relaxing summer break and are feeling refreshed and ready for the year ahead.  Our main focus this term is the study of a South American country—Peru.  We will be looking at stories from this country through our English work as well as exploring their art work, food and comparing their environment to ours.

 

PE will be on a Monday and Friday. Children will be developing their ability and confidence in multi-skills activities, tag   rugby and lacrosse.  We will also be using music from the South American culture to inspire our work in dance.  Please ensure  pupils have the correct PE kit on those days, including trainers, as well as a water bottle.  Children will also be going swimming with school. Please ensure they have a suitable costume/trunks.

 

Spellings will be given out on a weekly basis.  Please help the children to learn their spellings and become ‘super spellers’.  Children will be given a weekly maths activity on a Friday, which needs to be completed by the following Wednesday. All pupils need to be reading daily and reading records signed by a parent/carer at least four time a week.

 

This year, pupils in Year 3 will be given the opportunity to participate in Forest School Sessions.  These are   being delivered by Mrs Blake on a Tuesday afternoon and sessions will be tailored to support the curriculum in class.   Please ensure your child has the correct clothing in school on their Forest School Day. And finally, a quick reminder that any contribution to school fund are very much appreciated. Thank you.
