Leeds Museum Trip- 30th June 2017

Hawthorn Class Blog

Welcome back!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

I hope you all had a wonderful break away! We have loved being treated to some sunny weather this week and have made the most of being outside without getting soggy.

This week we have begun our new topic of Egyptians, and the children are loving it already!! We have already learnt lots of facts and are thirsty to discover more! Please feel free to send anything you find out at home in to school to share with everyone, we would love to see. By the time these children get to Summer, they will be archaeologists already!

In maths, we have taken mini a break from fractions and have started to look at time. In year 3, we will be looking at both digital and analogue time, including roman numerals. Any practise at home for this maths topic is good practise, so please feel free!

This week's spellings are all words with silent letters:

answer

island

length

strength

knock

climbed

taught

night

knight

pyramid

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend everyone. Hopefully the sun will continue, although I hear we may be getting a little bit of thunder... uh oh!

HAPPY EASTER!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

What a busy week we have had! We absolutely LOVED the Easter bingo the PSA organised! We had lots of fun taking part and even were lucky enough to win some eggs in the raffle. Lucky us!

We enjoyed taking part in science day on Wednesday. We made moving skeletons, combined cornflour and water to make a concoction called 'oobleck'. It was a very strange mixture which sometimes felt hard, but was also runny! How bizarre. We hope you enjoyed looking at our work in the hall after school and our posters.

This holiday's spellings are:

business

consider

decide

experience

increase

mention

notice

position

separate

thought

Happy practising! 

I hope you all have an egg-celent break with plenty of fun times! I look forward to hearing all your stories when you return to school on the 16th!

Spring has sprung!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

It has been a much sunnier week in Hawthorn class and is definitely starting to feel like Spring!

This week, we have begun to adapt our stories of the Egyptian Cinderella and make them our own. We have acted out the story and developed freeze frames. We have also looked at verbs and acted out how adverbs can change these. We were surprised how much impact one word can have! In maths we have continued to look at fractions and are getting very good at understanding the concept of these!

This week's spellings are:

century

complete

enough

favourite

group

knowledge

popular

promise

strange

through

Happy practising! Next week is only a four day week and then we break up for the Easter holidays. Time really has flown! If you get chance, please can you complete the parent survey on our website/ app. It only takes two minutes and it would be lovely to hear your thoughts :)

In other news, the school choir are performing at Morley Town Hall tomorrow at 9:50. If you are around Morley doing your shopping, it would be lovely to see your faces! I will be there, humming along.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you all on Monday!

Wait, no snow??

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

We have had a lovely, snow free week in Hawthorn class! Even though it has rained...

We have just started a brand new book- The Egyptian Cinderella. We have enjoyed comparing the traditional Cinderella story with the Egyptian version. We are beginning to retell the story and have made storyboards to help us.

In maths, we have begun looking at fractions! We are doing so well learning how to work out fractions of shapes and numbers! Well done us! I have been really impressed with the children's knowledge and their determination to learn a tricky subject!

This week's spellings are:

Egyptian

Nile

because

height

fraction

hour

minute

half

quarter

eighth

Happy practising!

Have a wonderful weekend and end to the week and I will see you all on Monday!

Let it snow!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

I hope you are all keeping safe and warm from the chilly weather we are having! That, or I hope you are all playing outside, building snowmen, hurling snowballs and generally having lots of fun in your wellies!!

We have been really enjoying our new book, The Iron Man, after we got over the fact that it is not the Marvel Iron Man with a red and gold suit... we have described the first setting of the book using poetry about the sea as inspiration. The children came up with some truly fantastic descriptions of the sea. I was more than impressed! As was Mr Holt who was invited to read our wonderful writing. We have looked at making our own graphs in maths, collecting information and presenting it in a bar graph. We have now moved on to looking at measurement- maybe you could measure how deep the snow is at your house! Mine is 9cm! It really does seem like there should be a wardrobe hiding out there somewhere...

This week's spellings are:

subzero (rather fitting don't you think?)

subheading

subway

subtitles

submerge

submarine

author

there

their

they're

Happy practising! Enjoy the snow and keep cosy!
