Our weekly update from Friday:

What have we been up to?

We have had another busy week! This week we have all been in the new Computer Suite and practiced logging onto the system and using animation software to make a simple animation. We have started our music topic by listening to four different pieces of music and discussing the instruments and musical elements that we can hear in each one. We have learnt more about how mountains are formed in our topic lessons and set up an experiment in Science. We finished the week with PSHE where we were thinking about what sort of learner we are!


We will continue our work on our focus text The Green Ship by Quentin Blake. This week we will focus in on the characters of Alice and her brother and we will write a diary entry from the point of view of one of them. We will finish the week thinking about setting descriptions and using ambitious vocabulary and different sentence openers.


This week in Maths is our third week of place value. Year 3 are focusing on 3-digit numbers whilst Year 4 will be looking at 4-digit numbers.  We will be comparing and ordering numbers. Both year groups will have the opportunity to solve problems and develop their reasoning skills.

Remember to continue your reading at home, and keep practising those times tables for our weekly 99 club sessions! If you read 5 times a week (and have your record signed by an adult) you will earn a sticker. The more stickers you have, the more housepoints you can earn!

Practising handwriting.

The children have been practising their

handwriting in this way, starting as large

as possible to clearly practice the appropriate

joins between letters.


In the example 'dog' here, you can see that
the letter is given 9 lines to be written
making sure that the ascenders touch
the top 
line, and the descenders touch the
bottom of 
the ninth line. This allows each
'section' of the 
letter to fill 3 lines. In the next
example there 
are 6 lines for the letter, 2 for
the ascending, 2 
for the descending and 2 for
the middle 
section. This is continued until the
children can write the letter within the spaces of just one line.
