What did you say Miss Bramley?

This week was a very quiet one in Hawthorn class as I lost my voice! The children were very concerned about this, even making get well soon cards- thank you for your kindness! My voice is so much better now thanks to a visit to the doctor, and all my lovely class’s help.

We have had a lovely week full of discussions about the rainforest! We have read a new book called the ‘Great Kapok Tree’ which tells the story of a community of animals who live in one tree in the Rainforest. We hot seated the animals who live in the tree, asking them questions about their feelings on their tree being cut down and how this will effect them. The children were so insightful and have some really strong opinions about deforestation! Next week, we are going to finalise our persuasive letters to the culprits of deforestations and write to them from the point of view of the animals in the story. We have used the laptops and iPads to research each animal and find out lots of detail about it. The children were very interested in endangered species and finding out which animals in our world are actually safe from extinction.

This week we also welcomed our Year 1 buddies into our classroom. We read them out Hansel and Gretel stories, and they read us their reading books. We also sang them the songs we have been learning. It was lovely! All the Year 3 children were amazingly grown up, and it was brilliant to see how they interacted so well and sensitively to their younger friends. Well done Year 3, I was very proud!

 

This week’s spellings are:

Accidentally

Breathe

Centre

Difficult

Early

Library

Medicine

Natural

Occasionally

Particularly

Happy practising!

Have a fantastic weekend! I will look forward to seeing parents on parents evening next Tuesday and Thursday. Don't forget to book your slot!

This week the children have all worked exceptionally hard to write their own versions of the story of Hansel and Gretel. They have used their fantastic imaginations to change the story to make it their own. I was so impressed that I awarded the headteacher's tea party award to all of them!! Mrs Austerfield was worried she might not have enough chocolate fingers for everyone, so we had a treat in class this afternoon instead. We loved it. We also really enjoyed looking at the artist Franz Marc and taking inspiration from his work to create our own rainforest pictures. Next week, we will be looking at writing letters and continuing with our Rainforest topic.

This week's spellings are:

anticlockwise

antiseptic

antisocial

antibiotic

clockwise

opposite

Rainforest

January

plain

plane

An odd collection of spellings this week, but they will be useful! Have a great weekend everyone, you've earned it this week!!

Grimm authors!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week we have been retelling the story of Hansel and Gretel. The children have made such a wonderful effort with their stories, including lots of adjectives to improve their writing. They have made a big effort to write even more than they usually do- I am incredibly impressed!

In maths we have begun looking at money. This week, we have looked at different coins and solved money problems. Next week, we will be practising adding and subtracting, multiplying and dividing money.

This week's spellings are:

scene

seen

here

hear

where

were

mail

male

weather

whether

Happy practising! Thank you for the fantastic effort with the homework last week too- the gingerbread houses looked amazing!

Have a lovely weekend!

Nibble nibble little mouse...

This week we have enjoyed our literacy lessons even more than usual! We followed a pebble path, which led us to a secret basket of objects. We studied the objects and guessed that our new story was... Hansel and Gretel! The duck confused us a little however...

We have been very busy making story maps to go with our new book and really enjoyed creating freeze frames for scenes in the story. We will be carrying on with our Hansel and Gretel work next week and are building up to writing a retell of the whole story! These are sure to be fantastic, as already the children seem to know the book off by heart.

We have continued with our work on column multiplication this week and next week in maths we will be starting to look at different values of money.

This week's spellings are:

actual

busy

circle

fruit

imagine

material

promise

special

after

improve

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend, hopefully the fog will clear and make way for some sun!

Happy New Year!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic break and enjoyed doing lots of lovely things! I've loved hearing about everyone's holiday and reading the holiday diaries that have come back to me.

This week we have started our new topic- The Rainforest! Already, we have had a debate on the pros and cons of deforestation, and the children had some fantastic insights into the reasons why they thought this was a good or bad idea. We have looked at where the rainforests of the world are and have thought of questions we would like the answers to about the rainforest. In maths we are continuing with multiplication and division, mainly focusing on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.

This week's spellings are:

reappear

appear

rearrange

arrange

rebuild

build

replay

play

recycle

cycle

Happy practising!

Have a great weekend in preparation for our first full week back!

Miss B
