What a fantastic first week back!

It was so lovely having the children back in school after the two week break. We got through lots of learning this week and the children worked really hard and impressed me as always!

In writing we looked at autobiographies and wrote our own after learning about our early life at home. We started the lesson having a go at spelling the word ‘autobiography’ in different ways using our phonic knowledge and breaking the word into syllables. We then chose which one we thought looked right. I was impressed with how many of us spelt it correctly!

In Maths this week we have been adding and subtracting fractions as well as finding a whole. Before we began this learning we had a go at recapping our previous knowledge of fractions by making and drawing fractions in different ways.

On Wednesday, we went orienteering after learning about the 8 compass points in Geography. On our travels we discovered lots of clues which we brought back to the classroom to piece together. It was a picture of Queen Victoria!

We studied the photo carefully in History and created a fact file on Queen Victoria using the internet to find out more about her lifetime. Then we pieced together a timeline of her life in chronological order.

In Art this half term we are looking a typography so started the topic outdoors making letters from natural materials.

I had to choose two learners of the week this week after the impressive learning taking place! They were;

Rayan, for showing perseverance in maths, challenging himself to do trickier questions and using knowledge he already knew to answer them. Well done and keep up the good work! 

Caitlin for working really hard on her handwriting target this week, showing determination despite a sore hand! She even continued practicing at home. Her hard work was evident in her autobiography writing. Well done, Caitlin. 

We were incredibly proud of Ayesha and Andrew who made it to the finals of Spelling Bee this week after competing with other contestants in Year 3. It was another tight round ending in a tie-breaker but they are the overall boy and girl winner of our Year Group! Huge congratulations to you both!

Lastly, well done to our Lexia Legends this week Andrew, Isaac, Joshua and Ayesha!

Looking forward to another great week of learning next week!
