Last week, some of the children in years three and four were able to take part in 'Able Maths Day' at Balby Central. They had the chance to meet a Robot from Robot Wars and learn about the maths involved in making one of them, including weighing, measuring and finding the area of different parts.
They had a great day and did us all proud!
Thank you to everyone who was able to come to our 'Learn how we learn roadshow' on Wednesday! It was lovely to see so many people and talk to some of you about the things we are doing in class.
For people who were unable to come (or those who might have lost them!) I have added the maths guides to the website so you can access them from home. You can find them under the 'Parents' heading on the front page and then 'Parents' Guides'. I hope you find them useful and if you have any questions then please don't hesitate to ask.
Year 3 and 4 had a lovely end to the half term with a Roman Workshop Day.
In the morning the children enjoyed taking part in a Roman quiz, playing maths game using their knowledge of Roman numerals and spending time looking at Roman artefacts.
In the afternoon the children had an opportunity to find out about life in the Roman army. They learnt how to march as the Roman soldiers would have done and we even held our very own Year 3 and 4 Chariot races.
This afternoon, Year 3 performed their Chinese New Year assembly for their parents.
They told the story of the animals crossing the river really well and made us very proud.
Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend and for your lovely comments:
"It was very enjoyable - always lovely to see what my daughter has been learning"
"Very well done. The children remembered every line. Very well done to all "
"The kids did a great job! Really enjoyed it!"
Welcome to Y3 - Miss Stocks!
Every week, children are expected to read at least three times at home and have their reading record books signed by an adult. All children in Class 6 are currently taking part our reading challenge, they achieve a tick on the chart for every book they complete. Every tick is worth 1 house point! Stickers are given out at 5, 10 and 15 ticks! When children achieve 20 ticks they choose a prize from our treasure chest!
Aswell as reading, children are also expected to practise the spellings they are given weekly and rehearse times tables. All children have been given a times table booklet to support them with this.
Children may also bring home a worksheet to complete, optional homework will be put on 'I Am Learning' and children may choose to complete a half-termly project linked to our topic work.
This half term our P.E. days are Tuesday and Thursday, please make sure that your child brings their P.E. kit on these days.
Thank you for all your support!
Miss Stocks & Miss Walton
