Church of England Primary School

Class 3

Autumn 2019

 

Welcome to Class 3 page. This half term we have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. We have used the Egyptian alphabet (Hieroglyphics) to create artwork and designed an Egyptian coaster - which will be making its way to home to parents at the end of Autumn term two. We have been writing diary extracts from Howard Carter's perspective and have been working really hard upon editing and upgrading our use of vocabulary. 

The children have also created an Egyptian dance, which they will show to parents on Thursday the 24th of October. 
We have had an Egyptian workshop - which the children and adults really enjoyed! 
 
In our maths learning we have been working hard upon understanding the column method for addition and subtraction. More recently we have been looking at the formal methods for multiplication and division.
 
After half term Class 3 will have the opportunity to take part in Squash lessons, every Friday afternoon before going along to Colchester Garrison for a Squash tournament at the end of next half term.
 
The children have worked really hard this half term and I have been very impressed with all of their efforts.

Year 3 - Computing

This term, in computing, the children have created a postcard, pretending they are Howard Carter. They used Paint to draw a picture that resembled an Egyptian scene and then they used Microsoft Word to type the message. 

 

Please have a look at their postcards and read the messages they sent.

 

Welcome back for the final term of this academic year!

 

Attached is the curriculum ideas for this term - they may change as the children's interest grows but they give a good general idea.

 

Dates for your diary:

Year 3 - Monday 30th April - Scatterball training for our cluster schools. Please could the children be our models?

 

Whole class - Tuesday 1st May - class visit to West Stow Anglo Saxon village in Bury St Edmunds

 

Year 4 - Wednesday 6th June - Food and Farming Day at Writtle College.

 

This is always a packed term - I hope you are all looking forward to it.

Here are the much awaited Young Voices photos. We had a fabulous time and hope that all the parents, relatives and friends who joined us did too.

 

Mrs Platt, Ms Godsell, Mrs Fairley and Miss Austin would like to wish you all a Happy New Year!  We hope you had a restful and peaceful break and are raring to go in 2017!

 

Please find below a link which gives an overview of our topic on 'Inventors and Inventions' and the work we will be covering this term.

 

We hope you are as excited as we are about our forthcoming trip to the O2 for Young Voices.  Watch this space for pictures!

Inventors and Inventions

Within the topic this term, we have looked at why  and when the war started, rationing, evacuation and the leaders involved in this monumental event in history.  Our studies will continue with Remembrance Day, how the local area was affected, Anne Frank and V.E. Day celebrations.

 

We spent a great afternoon building our Anderson Shelters having designed them at home.

We are looking forward to exploring our topic with you this term, World War II. Please find a curriculum map below.

 

Do you know anyone locally who has stories or experiences from this period they could share with the class? Please contact us.

 

If you find any great websites or discover amazing facts about our topic, be sure to let us know so we can share them here smiley

As part of our computing curriculum, children are taught to use our school blog.  They have the opportunity to have their work published on line and blogging provides a worldwide audience for pupil’s work.  It is a fantastic opportunity for the children to get excited about writing.  

There is a space after each post to leave a comment.  You will need to provide your own email address in order to do this (email address is not published).  The children would love to have some positive feedback from a real audience.
