Summer Term 2018
Welcome back to a very busy summer term in class 3.
This term our class topic is 'Brilliant Bees!' and we will be taking full advantage of our on school hives and expert bee keeper family, 'The Haigh’s'. The topic will be cross-curricular with a strong focus on Scientific Enquiry and Life Processes and living things- important strands of the science curriculum in KS2.
Our Bizzzzzy agenda will include;
We will keep you up to date with our project on our class web page so please keep checking in to see what we are up to!
Fingers crossed for better weather to come.
Welcome back. We have a very busy term this Spring term and have dived straight in to our Earthquake and volcanoes topic. The homework leaflet has been sent home and the first homework is due in on Wednesday 17th January.
Swimming starts Monday 15th January, please ensure goggles letters are returned before this date and that all girls have a one-piece swimming costume and swimming cap for each session. We will be leaving school at 12.30pm and returning at 2pm each Monday.
Spellings will continue to be sent home on a Monday and we will soon be commencing the Y3/4 high frequency spelling lists so all children will have the same 10 spellings. Please help your child to practice these at home and I will continue to log their scores in school after the Monday tests.
Any problems, please don't hesitate to contact me.
End of Topic Presentations
What an amazing and diverse array of homework Class 3 children have presented this term following our work on Ancient Greece.
We had power-presentations, Ancient Greek honey cake to share, a quiz, 3D models of an Ancient Greek temple, posters and games.
The children had researched Ancient Greek wars, architecture, pottery, schooling, the Olympics, clothing, food and the Gods. Faith even had a genuine Greek voice over for her very interactive project on how to pronounce the Ancient Greek alphabet!
Once again the children have entered into the topic with enthusiasm and gusto and the results have been exceptional. Well done to you all!
Class 3 Autumn 2017
Welcome back to school and a big thank you for all of the lovely presents and cards that were received by myself and Mrs Cairns at the end of the summer term. I do hope you had a pleasant and relaxing summer holiday.
We have a very busy year ahead and I will keep you updated via this class page and on weekly words.
Please check this page weekly as new homework tasks, photos and class letters will be posted here regularly.
Mr Haigh’s Bee Talk- Friday 7th April 2017
A big thank you to Mr Haigh and his excellent helpers Jacob and Elin. We were treated to an incredibly informative and entertaining talk accompanied by a hands on session where all children were able to handle equipment, wax in its raw form, candles, honey and much more.
Mr Haigh will be escorting groups of children and their teachers, up to the hives on Friday afternoons during the summer term where we will all learn how to look after the bees and their hives.
Class 3 had a wonderful afternoon at church on Thursday, taking part in an interactive Easter learning experience.
Children were read the Easter story before visiting the Garden of Gethsemane, taking part in The Last Supper and thinking about ' Hopes and Dreams'. We finally looked at The Resurrection before a prayer and sunny walk back to school.
Many thanks to Pam Morton, Ann Tainton, Angela Godwin, Peter Goodyear, Pam Michaelson and of course Linda Bedford- you really brought this important Christian occasion to life for the children and reminded them of the importance and true meaning of Easter.
Many thanks and Happy Easter

Beau Street Hoard
Following our topic lesson on the Roman hoard of coins found in Bath in 2007, I include a link to the Roman Baths website that will enable your child to create their own Roman coin.
There are clear instructions on how to upload their image and we will look in class at the collection of uploaded coins from our peers in Class 3.
Happy New Year to you all and a big thank you for all the wonderful Christmas gifts, cards and wishes.
We have a busy term coming up starting with our class 'Unlocking' trip to Bath on Wednesday 25th January.
Swimming will commence on Monday 6th January, please complete a goggles permission letter if you wish your child to wear goggles in the chlorinated water (Forms available from Mrs Harrison).
There will be a slight change to homework this term with a project being sent out on Friday 13th January. This will give children time to research and produce a good quality project to be completed by Wednesday 29th March.
There will be additional maths homework sent out every other week for children to complete and return by the following Monday.
Children will continue to be tested on their weekly spellings every Monday morning with their results being noted in their home liaison books.
Look out for upcoming 'Locking in' dates and further notices on weekly words.
Once again, any problems please do not hesitate to contact us.
