Here are a few photos from our recent wildlife day. Can you explain what we are doing in each photo?
We would like to invite you to our art gallery on Wednesday after school. It will be in the Secret Garden and all parents and carers are invited from Year 3.
It will be a fantastic opportunity to view our art work and hear from the children all about their growing knowledge of Mountains, Rivers and Coasts.
The gallery will be open from 3:45pm and we hope to see as many of you there as possible.
The swimming pool has been a cooling relief over the past few weeks! I have been very impressed with the amount of progress that the children are making with swimming this term. The children are growing in confidence and are starting to swim further using their new knowledge of different strokes.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be starting to learn 'dolphin kick'. This is the start of the 'butterfly stroke' but with only the legs at this stage. Use this link to watch how a professional swimmer does dolphin kick.
How did you find it?
Which part was the trickiest?
Remember that you need your swimming kit every Friday (hat, trunks/swim suit and towel).
A massive 'Well done!' to all who have completed homework for this topic. I have been very impressed!
The 3D models are spectacular and must have taken lots of time and effort. The research that you have completed is also very detailed. All this shows me that lots of you have really enjoyed continuing your learning at home.
If you are not sure what the home work is please click on the homework icon on the website or ask me for another print out of the homework sheet.
I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful work.
,This half term is already whizzing past and the count down to being grown up Year 4 children begins!
3C have been showing off their super learning knowledge over the past week and I've been really impressed with the progress that they are making. Well done to those children who have achieved a pen license. Your writing is neatly joined, presented clearly in all subject areas and is the correct size. Well done!
Just a reminder that PE is on a Tuesday and swimming is every Friday. Please ensure that your kit is in school at all times.
We are starting a new book this week called A River, which links really well with our Topic of Mountains, Rivers and Coasts. What do you think is going to happen in this book? Have you visited a river? What did you hear? See? Smell? Touch?
Yesterday in Science, with Miss Mackay, we were learning about parts of a flower and pollination.
How many parts of the flower can you name?
Which creatures help to pollinate flowers?
Tell your family about how you were able to dissect a flower.
Mrs Chrin and Miss Mackay
I hope that you all enjoyed the sunny bank holiday and this four day week?!
We welcome Miss Mackay back who is our trainee teacher for the summer term. The children have enjoyed her lessons this week on our book; James and the giant peach.
I have been busy cutting out the tokens from the new reading diaries. How many times have you read this week? Make sure you get them signed at home so I can put them into our raffle box. Please make sure you have your diary in school each day as I will try to look at them when I get a spare moment.
We are almost at the end of this half term which means time for at least one piece of homework. Which piece have you already completed? Make sure you bring it so we can share it together.
Just a reminder that swimming is every Friday afternoon. Children should bring a swimming hat, towel, swim suit/trunks and a water bottle.
What a super trip we had!
After the disappointment of having to postpone our trip to Foxhall waste and recycling centre, I was very glad that we finally made it this week and in the sunshine!!
We all had a great time (staff and pupils) exploring the recycling centre. Who knew rubbish could be so much fun! We enjoyed sorting, re-using, looking around the reuse shop and looking for symbols around the site. What was your favourite activity?
Many of the children have come back wanting to take better care of our environment and wanting to change recycling at Rushmere, which is fantastic. Have you been sorting your rubbish at home with a grown up?
Due to the trip and timetable we have not been able to do our spellings this week. Keep learning them at home and we will go over them next week instead.
What a sunny start back to the term!
We all enjoyed our golf taster session this morning. Well done to Harley and Sebastian who were able to hit the golf ball the furthest.
We have begun our new geography topic; Mountains, rivers and coasts, as well as our new science topic; How does your garden grow?
Do ask your child over the coming weeks to find out more about our learning.
Reminders about up coming events:
* Swimming every Friday afternoon. Goggles can only be worn if you have filled in the schools form.
*P.E session every Tuesday morning (please ensure PE kit is kept in school at all times).
* Postponed trip to the Foxhall waste and recycling centre will take place on Wednesday 25th April. Children should wear their school uniform and sensible shoes for walking around the site. Bring a change of shoes if you think this would be a better option. Let's hope the weather stays dry this time!
Do come and find me if you have any queries.
Welcome to 3C! On this page, you can see all of the hard work we do whilst at school. We hope you feel proud of our efforts because we feel proud of ourselves!
