A massive thank you to all of you for working so hard this year. I have really enjoyed teaching you all and I know Mr Bentley is lucky to be teaching you in Year 4.
A huge thank you for all the kind words, cards and gifts, it was so generous of you. I shall enjoy using and eating them over the summer and into the new academic year.
Stay safe over the summer and make lots of great memories.
Can you believe there are only 2 days left of Year 3!
I am so proud of all that the children have achieved this year and I look forward to our final few days in Year 3 together.
A few handy reminders for the remaining days at school.
On Monday please remember to bring a carrier bag or two to take your books home.
On Tuesday please bring your picnic breakfast and a blanket to sit on. This will be a great time to celebrate the end of term.
We were so pleased to receive letters from our French friends. The children wrote to us about the things they like to do and if they have any pets. We were very impressed with their neat handwriting.
3C have had another busy, fun filled week of learning.
Well done to all the children who completed the swimathon on Monday. Everyone embraced the challenge and helped to encourage each other when energy levels were running low. Try to collect your sponsor money this weekend and then hand to the office next week.
This week has been refugee week in school. In class we have been learning about what a refugee is and how they might feel if they had to flee their home. To help us gain a better understanding of what a refugee is, we read the book, The Colour of home.
How did Hassan feel when he arrived at the new school?
What did he paint at first?
What colours would you use to paint your home?
Thank you to those who attended the Refu-tea party this week. It was a wonderful event.
Please remember sun hats and water bottles as the weather warms up.
Year 3 will be completing the Rushmere Swimathon during their Monday lesson. Children will swim aided or unaided for as many laps as they can. This will be a fun experience for the children.
Please remember to get your sponsor forms completed and returned to the school office.
How far do you think you will be able to swim?
I hope you have dried out after an incredibly soggy week!
The children will be swimming on Monday so please ensure they have their swimming kit in on Monday.
In English we have been reading the book 'A River' by Marc Martin. We have enjoyed exploring the illustrations and imagining our own journeys on a small, sailing boat.
In art we created clay tiles to represent the different places on the journey. This week we painted the tiles and then covered them with PVA glue. We think they look great!
Why not tell your grown up which location your tile represents.
I hope you had a restful Easter break and are all ready for the Summer Term.
Please can you all remember to bring your clean PE kits back.
Sadly swimming will not start next week but we will keep you posted on further information.
Well done to Holly for sending in her Extreme Reading photo. What a great photo!
