BRAND NEW HOME LEARNING FOR SPRING 2!
WELL DONE TO ALL OF MY WONDERFUL WILLOWS FOR TAKING PART IN YOUR AMAZING EGYPTIAN HOME LEARNING IN SPRING 1! I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE HOW BRILLIANT YOUR HOME LEARNING ALL ABOUT EARTHQUAKES AND VOLCANOES WILL BE!
IF YOU NEED TO PRINT OUT PHOTOS ... YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO ASK FOR MY EMAIL ADDRESS AND I CAN PRINT THEM AT SCHOOL FOR YOU :)
Every child has their own personal RM Maths login which tailors Maths questions to their Mathematical understanding!
The children LOVE using RM Maths during Laptop time and have shown true sportsmanship through healthy competition!
If you've lost your login, feel free to drop me a message at the bottom of this page and I will let you know it :D
A fantastic Maths learning resource that will help consolidate learning by plugging the gaps and allow learners to stretch their knowledge and understanding!
Our Spring 2 Term Learning Journey is...

Last Friday, we celebrated World Book Day!
Can you guess what book characters we dressed up as?
We enjoyed sharing our favourite books with our friends! We even shared some stories with Y5!
Our Spring 1 Learning Journey is Egyptians!
What do you know about Ancient Egypt?
Over the next 7 weeks we will be finding out lots of information all about the Egyptians and answering our burning Learning Journey question
'Can Mummies come to back to life?'
We are making sure that each week our learning has a different subject theme to ensure we are learning through Art, D&T, Science, Geography, History and P.E.
Week 1: We turned our classroom into Ancient Egypt! Come and take a look!
We became Archaeologists and hunted for anything from Ancient Egypt!
Do you like our new Pyramid?
We wrote our names and secret codes in Hieroglyphics! Can you work out our codes? Miss Morris writes a secret code up each week and we need to figure it out.
Our Autumn 2 Learning Journey is...
The million dollar question we will be answering will be... 'Was Willy Wonka the original Chocolatier?'
This half term we will be:
*Finding out how chocolate was first discovered.
*Inventing our own Willy Wonka inspired chocolate bars.
*Reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
*Creating a new character that discovers another GOLDEN TICKET
*Learning about a balanced diet and choosing an alternative chocolate snack.
And learning lots more!
Week 1 will be design week - check back here at the end of the week to see us transform our classroom into Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory!
TheGreat Wonka Bake Off!
Paul and Mary came to visit us to explain that we were taking part in Bake Off! We had to create our own wacky chocolate that would make Willy Wonka proud!
Everyone got involved and created some of the best chocolate around!
Check out our English learning to read our amazing ingredients!
We sent a sample to Mr Willy Wonka and are hoping for a reply VERY SOON!
We HAD to try our samples too!
For our Home Learning we've been investigating chocolate!
Mr. Willy Wonka himself!
Our Autumn One Learning Journey question
'I wonder if the Moon
is really made of Cheese?'
For this, we will be exploring Space!
Before we Blast off into Space... we need to get kitted up!
Check back next week for our Astronaut photos including jet packs and moon rocks!
We became astronauts and found someone on the Moon!
We investigated shadows and the colours that reflect in light!
ROALD DAHL DAY!
We celebrated Roald Dahl's 100th Birthday by dressing up as our favourite characters from his beloved books!
Can you spot who we are?
We spent the day creating our own Marvellous Medicines - just like George!
Home Learning in Y3 is changing from Autumn 2!
Your child will receive a
mindmap of Learning Journey activities
to complete over the next SEVEN WEEKS!
These can be handed in as and when the children complete them OR on the last Friday of the half term when parents are invited in to share learning.
Each week your child will be given Spelling and Maths Home Learning. This will be given on a Friday to be handed back in by the following Wednesday! Please can you make sure your child does not misplace their book!
Reading is SO important for your mind. It helps children to understand the world around them, explore subjects and feed their imaginations!
Please can you read with your child every day for at least 10 minutes! It will help with their concentration, understanding and comprehension!
Your child might bring home extracts from our class book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' this half term.
ZAP IT! ZAP IT! MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Your child will receive a 'Spelling Zappers' booklet in the first few weeks of
Autumn 2 term.
Within the booklet (example link below) will be personalised spellings to your child's ability which can be practised at home and at school!
In order to make your child's writing EVEN BETTER, they need to be able to spell a number of common exception words!
Zapping those words will help your child to spell confidently and enjoy spelling!
Please visit the website to familiarise yourself with spelling zappers.
I will invite parents in for a drop-in session once the zappers are up and running to chat!
Miss Morris :)
