Homework for the 13.6.19

We have been designing our own islands this week to help us write an adventure story and to give us some ideas for poetry. For your homework, I would like you to research a ‘real’ island. Try to find one that nobody else will have. What is on the island? How big is the island? Do people live on the island? Is it a holiday destination? How do people get to the island? Have fun researching!

Summer Term 2

 

This half term our theme is 'The Great Outdoors'. We will be looking at creating our own islands, designing original plants and animals to go on them and eventually, writing stories about our adventures on our islands. We will go into detail about how plants grow and create new plants. In maths, we will be continuing with time and moving onto capacity and shapes. 

 

P.E this half term will continue on a Thursday afternoon. However, there will be no P.E on a Tuesday because we now have the use of our swimming pool - yay! This means your child will need their swimming kits on Wednesdays and Fridays. Times table and spelling quizzes will continue on a Friday. Homework will also be set on a Friday to be in for the following Thursday. Please keep reading and practising your times tables at home as it is a big help! 

 

We are lucky to have two school trips this half-term. We will be going to Bewilderwood with the whole school on the 21st of June and the Royal Norfolk Show on the 26th of June. If you are free that day and fancy giving us a hand for the day, that would be fantastic! Any parents or family members wishing to volunteer, please could you come and see me! Thank you! 

 

Our parent cafe will be held on Tuesday 16th of July from 2pm. Letters will follow so we know the number of adults attending. We look forward to seeing you then.

 

Any questions or queries, do not hesitate in emailing or popping in! Thank you :)

Earthquake in Year 3!

On Friday, the children came into class to find that we had experienced an earthquake. The children were recruited to become members of the 'Earthquake Team'. Not only did that mean tidying up the rubble, but also creating new model buildings which where 'earthquake-proof'. They started by using cocktail sticks and marshmallows to create a prototype and tested it in a big bowl of jelly. Then, they used reflections from this to make a bigger model which was experimented using the 'shake table'. Lots of laughter and great ideas all day! :)

Homework for the 3.6.19

We are going to be looking at ‘time’ in maths after half term and you need to know some time facts before we do. Your homework is to revise these facts for a small quiz on the first Monday back after half term. If you have any questions or are unsure why these facts are true, have conversations with your adults at home and in school. You may wish to create notes or a poster to help you remember. Good Luck!

 

Children have been given the facts.

Homework for the 9.5.19

Welcome back! We are going to be studying the country of Italy this half term and looking at the different earthquakes that have taken place there. Due to the Stone Age houses being such a success, your homework for the next two weeks is to research an Italian landmark and create a small model to represent it. It could be built from lego, cake, paper, cardboard or whatever you have in your cupboards! I would like to know where the landmark is and a few facts about it. Please remember to keep reading and practising your times tables and spellings also. If you have any questions about anything, feel free to email or pop in! J

Summer - Term 1 

 

This half term we are going to be learning about Europe and focusing on the country Italy. We will look at previous earthquakes in Italy and how/why earthquakes occur and how they can have an impact on the town or country. Linked with this, we will be reading 'Earthquake Challenge' by Bear Grylls and creating a travel brochure about Italy. In maths, we are continuing with fractions and moving on to telling the time. Practising the time at home would be very helpful, as well as continuing with times tables. 

 

Homework will continue to be set on a Friday and handed in on a Thursday. Times table and spelling quizzes will happen on a Friday morning and reading records will be collected in on Mondays. Please remember children should be reading 3x a week at home. P.E will continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It would be helpful if P.E kits could be in school at all times.

This half term, our topic is 'Grand Designs'. We will look at constructing our own grand designs using our forces and magnets knowledge that we will be learning about in Science. Year 3 will be focusing on 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and designing our own grand design based on the chocolate factory. This will lead to some descriptive writing and original explanation texts. We will continue to look at statistics and then measurement and fractions in Maths and will continue with our weekly times table quizzes. P.E will remain on Tuesdays and Thursdays but please ensure P.E kits are in school throughout the week in case we need them. Homework will also remain the same.

Tuesday 29th January

 

We have had a brilliant science/history day today! This morning, we had a visit from the 'Norfolk Wildlife Trust'. Isabelle taught us all about who the 'Norfolk Wildlife Trust' are, what they do and the fossils they have found. Then, we had a carousel of activities to complete. We made our own fossil replicas out of clay, matched up sea fossils to their correct names, investigated big fossils and had to ID them, uncovered fossils and created our own fossil rubbings. 

 

During the afternoon, Graeme came in to talk to us about the Stone Age - Iron Age. We looked at a world without metal, explored artefacts and attempted to peel vegetables with a piece of flint. What a fabulous day! Thank you to our visitors for helping us with our topic learning.

Today we explored mixing hair gel with different substances to see whether they would turn the hair gel into a liquid or dissolve. We used sugar, salt, icing sugar, flour and water to see which substance would turn the hair gel into a liquid the best. We recorded our results in a table and discussed them as a class at the end. We all found that salt was the best substance and flour the worst. A fun and messy day! :)

Homework for the 8.11.18

 

We are coming to the end of our Ancient Greece topic. This week, I would like you to create your own Greek God comic strip. We have looked at many of the Gods and have discussed their role, where they lived and their personalities. You can choose whether you want to include more than one character and what your comic strip is about. Remember to write neatly and use some of the facts that you have learnt about. I look forward to reading them! J

Homework for the 1.11.18

 

I would like you to think back to writing our Greek myths. Where was your setting? Use your imagination to create a piece of artwork for your setting. For example, you may have described it as deep, dark underworld. If so, I would like a piece of art that represents that scene. You can choose which materials you use.

Ancient Greek Day 

On Tuesday, we visited the North Norfolk Railway for a day of Ancient Greek activities. We completed an archaeological dig, looked at lots of different Greek medicines, discussed ancient artefacts and explored Greek myths and Gods. We had a great time throughout the day, especially on the train!

There are many different Greek Gods. Design your own Greek God. What do they rule? What do they look like? What do they sound like? What powers do they have? Are they good/bad? You can write a description, draw and label a picture or have a combination of both. Be creative :)
