Hello everyone! 


In class 3, in our first half term, we have been enjoying learning about our new topic called "Tremors". We have investigated causes of volcanoes and effects on the surrounding areas. We have had fun recreating the "imprints of Pompeii" by posing as the unfortunate villagers and having our friends sketch us in our "poses".

In our art lesson we have designed and created our own mineral rocks out of clay, considering colour and texture then giving it an individual and unique twist!

Great fun has been had by all and we all feel incredibly proud of our new found "Tremors" knowledge.

Summer Term A

Our Topic is SCRUMDIDDLIUMPTIOUS where we have been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as part of our English Curriculum, making Sculptures and learning about all aspects of the importance of Food.


We have taken part in the Carry My Story Project to learn about diversity in our community and the world and will be attending the Finale on 19th June 2019.



In class 3 homework will be sent home on Thursday evening: to be brought back by the following Thursday please.


Please help your child by

- chanting the times table they are learning and test them on random questions, ready for a test each Thursday. 


- checking their spelling homework for a test on the following Thursday.


- listening to your child read their reading book which can be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. Please can the adult who hears your child read write the page number and initials or a comment in the yellow reading record book, thank you.  


Your child will have a piece of maths and English work to complete over the week to return on the Thursday.



There is also a topic sheet of activities that you and your child can complete together –as many as you would like and bring them in as they are done please, so we can show them off in a ‘show and tell session’.


I try to send home work that is familiar to your child so that they can complete it successfully, feel proud and show off their cleverness.

If at any point homework causes any stress or upset, then please just don’t do it and write a note in their reading record.


If your child would like to bring their own book bag to school then that would be a great help. If not, we have plastic bags on order.


Many thanks,

Mrs Smith
