Spring term 2

What a brilliant first week back. Every single member of Class 3 has come back full of enthusiasm with huge smiles on their faces and enjoyed learning again with their friends. Take a look at what we’ve been doing so far in our SPACE week. We have used fruit to represent planets, trained as astronauts, created our very own Solar System and we will be undertaking interviews to become the next Huby Astronaut. We’ve been learning about the current Mars mission and making our very own Mars Rover. 3,2,1 BLAST OFF…

We hope you’ve all had a relaxing half term and enjoyed the warmer weather. We have been so impressed with the effort and the work that has come into school over the last few weeks. Take a look at some of the work that you have been doing.

Above we have photos of non-chronological reports, Anglo-Saxon villages and our wonderful Art Competition. A big thank you to everyone who took part in the competition. Winners will be revealed on the Friday 26th February.

Spring term 1

Welcome back! We hope you had a restful Christmas and New Year!

This term Class 3 will be learning all about the Anglo Saxons. We will use maps to locate their settlements. We will look at the type of settlements and what made them pick that area to build their home. Mrs Proudley is looking forward to using clay with class 3 this term to make Anglo Saxon jewellery. In Science with Mrs Borwell you will be looking at forces. Our page will be updated throughout the term with photos showing what we have been up to!

General Information

Listening to your child read on a regular basis, for example 3 or 4 times a week really helps them to progress and your help is greatly appreciated.

It will be very helpful if you could please continue to do the following:

  • When you read with your child, enter the date and title of the book in the reading record and sign your name.
  • Feel free to comment on how your child has done, but please don’t feel that you must do this every time as just signing your name is fine.
  • Speak to your child about the book asking questions such as: What could happen next? Why do you think that will happen? Can you tell me about the main character in the story?


Your child is working on their SMIRF targets. You can find these in the front of their yellow reading record book.  Like last year, the aim for your child is to complete the targets to enable them to move onto the next planet. Instant recall of mental maths is really beneficial to your child’s understanding and further progress in maths.  Please encourage your child to practise these on a regular basis, just 5 minutes is perfect!

Times Tables Rockstars

This is a great website where the children practice their times tables (and the corresponding division facts). Each child has their own username and password to login. Hopefully all parents are aware of this site now but don’t worry if you’re not, just let me known and I’ll give you your child’s login details.

WW2 interviews

Class 3 have been learning about types of questions and interview techniques. We interviewed with the use of a top quality microphone (glue stick) foster mums, evacuees, RAF pilots and soldiers. It helped us really think about the many different experiences of WW2.


Class 3 enjoyed taking part in the pumpkin competition. Class 3 what amazing imaginations you have!
