Curriculum and POWer Project

Click here to find out what we are doing this term.

Also find the power project homework here - deadline for homework and points to added is Wednesday 12th July 2018. There will be a good work assembly to showcase some of the children's creations, the date of which will be confirmed closer to the time.

Enabling Enterprise

Year 3 and 4 collected recycled plastic bottles and designed flowers to make a floral display for their 'Trash to Treasure' project. They spent a week focussing on skills such as working as a team, staying positive and using their imagination.

The children were assigned the roles of team leaders, time keepers, coordinators and designers, where they worked collaboratively through the research, design and making process to create some masterpieces.

We had a parent workshop on Thursday 7th June and there was an amazing turnout.

On behalf of the children and the Year 3 and 4 staff, I'd like to say a huge thank you for your support, encouragement and participation.

  PE

 PE is every Monday and Thursday.

Could you please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school.

A white polo shirt and black pumps are the correct kit. Appropriate footwear is needed and children may bring longer bottoms and a jacket for cold weather.

 

 

 

Times Tables

Times Tables tests are every Wednesday. Your child must practise the times tables that are on their sheet. They do not have to practise under test conditions, however, there is a 5 minute time limit on test day, so they may find doing so good practise.

Home Readers

Could home readers be bought into school on Tuesdays and Thursdays so that an adult can hear your child read.

Books will only be changed once the current book has been completed and they will have a choice between fiction and non-fiction books.

Chinese New Year

 xīn nián kuài lè!

On Friday 16th February, Year 3 dressed in red and celebrated Chinese New Year , bringing in the Year of the Dog.

We were very lucky that our China topic was coming to an end on the same day as Chinese New Year, so decided to mark the occasion in style.

The children learnt songs, ate Chinese food, wrote poems and enjoyed many craft activities based around the celebration. It was lovely to see the children so immersed in their learning, whilst having fun and they used the items they made as props for our Chinese New Year song.

Stone Age Day

 On Friday 1st December we fully immersed ourselves into cave life in celebration of our topic 'Meet the Flinstones'. The children took part in a range of cross-curricular activities to help them understand what life was life during the Neolithic period. Some of the children found it a little too easy to get into role!  

Hindu Temple

On Thursday 19th October we visited a Hindu Temple as part of multi-faith week. We were made to feel very welcome and learnt a lot about how Hindus worship.

Birmingham Airport

On Friday 29th September we visited Birmingham International Airport as part of our topic  about travel. We got to see all aspects of airport life from checking in to security to seeing the planes. we all had an enjoyable day and Miss Evans was really pleased with our wonderful behaviour.
