What we have been learning



This week we have been looking at the features of Non-chronological reports – paragraphs, sub headings, bullet points. Maths has been rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000 and Year 3 have consolidated their understanding of place value in numbers to 1000.


In Art, the children used spices mixed with water and flour to paint their cave wall – which was made from couscous and pva glue on a piece of thick cardboard. Sorry if they were a bit messy on Thursday afternoon!


In Science, the children have been looking at food groups and food packaging. P.E. has been swimming and netball skills.


Table of the week is Morpurgo table – Congratulations!

Our work on place value has continued this week, with comparing and ordering numbers up to 1000 and 10,000.


In English most of us have finished our Stone Age stories – copies of these should come home today. Next week we start Non-Chronological report writing which will involve researching our Stone Age topic.


In Art this week we went on the field and found some natural materials to make ‘paint’ from which was fun and quite messy! P.E. this term is learning netball skills and we have started to play mini games following the rules.

Table of the week is Kinney table – Congratulations!

This week in Maths we have been placing numbers on number lines and considering the place value of numbers. In English we have continued planning for our stories about meeting a Stone Age person! Hopefully these will be ready by the end of next week so the children can bring a copy home for you to read.


In History, we have been looking at Stone Age artefacts and considering how these show progress over the period. Our cave style art work involved enlarging our animal sketches and outlining them using charcoal.


Table of the week for this week is Walliams table – Congratulations!

I can't believe we have just finished the first, full week of the Autumn term! It has been lovely to hear about all the wonderful things the children did during the Summer holidays. We must have some very exhausted parents!!!


The children have amazed us with how well they have settled into Kingfisher Class and we are looking forward to the year ahead. 


In Maths this week the children have been working on Place Value by recognising the value of each digit in a 3 or 4 digit number. They have been using arrow cards, Dienes equipment and HTU grids - photos will follow next week. In English the children have been working on stories with an unfamiliar setting and looking at how description can add interest to the reader.  In Computing we discussed the importance of staying safe when gaming online and in Science we looked at the digestive system. Swimming also began this week and the children quickly picked up where they left off last term. 


TTRockstars has begun with a bang in Kingfishers and the children have been carrying out times tables activities every day. Lots of challenges are going to happen this year across the school and we are determined to beat Owl class!! Please continue to practice these with them as much as possible. We cannot stress enough how important it is that the children know their times tables up to 12x12.


Congratulations to Harry W and Jessica for getting their celebration certificates today and well done to JK Rowlings for earning the first Table of the Week award of the year!


Despite the sad news we received yesterday about Her Majesty the Queen, we hope you are able to have a good weekend.
