Welcome to 3/4MB with Miss Mayo-Braiden and Mrs Fannon!

 

The first term has gone really well and both Mrs Fannon and I have really enjoyed working with the children.

 

Important Information:

- P.E will continue to take place on Mondays and Wednesdays so please make sure that your child has their kit in school (pumps, white t-shirt and shorts). It would also be very helpful if you could label all items. 

- Swimming will be on Tuesdays and will begin on Tuesday 13th September. Please make sure that your child has the correct equipment. 

Reading: please make sure that your child brings their reading folder into school everyday. It is very important for your child to read regularly and will support their progression throughout school.

- Maths Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be excpected back in on the following Wednesday.

- Home Learning: WOW! The children have produced some excellent pieces of home learning over the last term and we all really enjoy hearing about what they have been doing. We look forward to seeing what this next half-term will bring...

 

What can you do to help at home?

 

There are lots of things that you can do at home to help your child. It is really important that your child is heard read everyday - even if you only have a spare ten minutes. It is also essential that your child knows their times tables by heart and this will really support their progression in maths. So, any practice will be reflected in their work! Also, homework is designed to be a short extension of the learning taking place in the classroom, so if this is completed your child will be revising and consolidating essential knowledge and skills.

 

Well done to all of you who have been learning your times tables! Especially our Uptown Funk rap (3x table).

 

If you have any concerns or questions, please come and see me or Mrs Fannon and we will be very happy to help. 

World Book Day:

We were really impressed with the efforts for World Book Day, take a look at: Mr and Mrs Stink, Matilda and the BFG...

 

Topic:

Flow - our topic for this half-term is all about water. We are using Wind in the Willows as our text in English and we are creating watercolour paintings in Art (based on The Wind in the Willows.) We are going to look at the stages in the Water Cycle for Geography and the children will learn a new song to help them remember each stage. Our focus for Science this half-term will be sound and the children will be carrying out different experiments and writing up their findings.

Previous Learning:

Urban Pioneers:

We started the academic year with Urban Pioneers which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of the children. They really enjoyed using the familiar story of, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ to re-create their own mischief.

In Geography, they used maps to identify countries and continents. They enjoyed their collaborative learning opportunity. 

We visited Avoncroft Museum as part of our topic and the children really enjoyed thid learning opportunity...

 

Mighty Metals:

Our writing stimuli for this topic was: The Tin Forest and The Iron Man. The children really enjoyed reading this stories and then creating their own setting and character descriptions. They were amazing at generating vocabulary and using thesauruses to develop their use of synonyms.

For Science, we focused on Forces and Magnets. We investigated how the same object travels down a slope on different surfaces. We also investigated how many paper clips a magnet can hold. The children discussed different ways of carrying out their experiment and worked collaboratively to meet their objective.

In Art, the children created excellent sketches and used a range of techniques to create different tones. For Design Technology, they worked with their learning partners to create their very own tin forest. They used a variety of different materials, including: tin foil, bottle tops, tea light holders and screws. They carefully painted a shoe box and attached all of their objects. They were, rightly so, really proud of their work.

We created Iron Men for our display in the corridor and The Tin Forest for our Classroom display...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As part of our Science, we investigated materials and whether they were made out of metal or not...

Heroes and Villains:

The children really enjoyed researching historic people and using their research to write: letters, dairy entries, postcards and newspaper articles. We were also really impressed with the home learning that linked to our topic.
