 Year 3 Sleepover!- 28/6/24

Today, your child should have come home with a letter regarding the year 3 overnight stay at school. The aim of the stay is to help children prepare for longer overnight stays, such as residential trips in year four and year six. If your child would like to participate, please sign the form attached to the letter and return no later than Monday 10th June 2024. We are looking forward to an evening filled with fun activities! 

 

 

Warner Brother's Studio Tour- 16.5.24

The children had a wonderful day at the Warner Brother's Studio tour! Lots of props, costumes and sets were seen and the children learnt some awesome facts about the Harry Potter films. Here is a snapshot of a very memorable day for the children. 

 

As part of their ticket, each child got a photo of them on a broomstick, as if they were playing a Quidditch match (how magical!) I will print these off individually for children next week. A fun day was had by all! 

Design & Technology- 3.5.24

As part of DT this term, we are looking at food safety, preparing ingredients and seasonal foods. Today in DT, the children had a go at preparing various fruits and vegetables. The children learnt how to use bridge and claw techniques to hold the food safely and how to safely use a knife to cut and chop food. Afterwards, the children enjoyed eating the fruit they had prepared! 

Harry Potter Studios trip- 16th May 2024

Our trip to the Harry Potter Studios is fast approaching! Here are some answers to questions I have received regarding the trip: 

Spending money- Children are welcome to bring spending money for the trip, however, no more than £10 each please. The money will be the children's responsibility, or alternatively, they can ask their adult on the day to look after it for them.

Lunch- Children will either be provided with a packed lunch on the day or they can bring their own (depending on what they ordered at the time of signing the trip letter). We do ask that their lunch and any drinks brought with them are in a plastic/paper bag and bottle, so they can be thrown away afterwards. 

Bags/rucksacks-  Children are welcome to bring a small bag to place their money in for the day (such as a cross shoulder bag or small purse). Children do not need to bring in their usual bag or rucksack as the only thing they will need to carry on the day is their lunch, until they throw it away, and anything they buy in the gift shop! 

Travel sicknessThe coach journey to the studios is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. If your child is usually travel sick, please go to the school office either before or on the morning of the trip to sign their travel sickness medication in and sign a consent form for us to administer the medication before we leave the studios. 

School uniform- Children will need to come to school in their school uniform on the day of the trip. This includes wearing a navy blue jumper, either with or without the school logo on. This is for easy identification on the day. Children can wear comfortable shoes, such as trainers, as we will be doing a lot of walking around. 

Any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask myself or Miss Atkinson or the school office! We are looking forward to an exciting and enjoyable day!

Please find our spellings for the rest of this term below. Our test is every Monday morning. Children have their number of spellings highlighted in their homework book. Happy practicing and good luck!

Welcome back! 15.4.24

Welcome back! I hope you had a restful and enjoyable Easter break. It was lovely to see the children back in today, full of smiles, ready for this term's learning- our summer term plan is attached below, feel free to take a look!

 

Please ensure you are listening to your child read daily- we do try to listen to as many children as we can in school. Children should also be practicing their weekly spellings which come home with their homework each week. Thank you for your support with this. 

 

Your child should have come home with two letters today- one regarding watching PG rated films (related to our English for this term) and one regarding relationships education. Feel free to catch me for a chat about either of those letters, should you have any concerns or questions. 

 

Thank you, your ongoing support is greatly appreciated!

Design and Technology- 22.3.24

The children thoroughly enjoyed programming their Micro:bits yesterday in DT! It was amazing to see their programming and coding skills being used to design and create a piece of wearable technology. Well done Willow class! 

 

World Book Day - 7th March 2024

Please see some photos below of the children in their wonderful costumes for World Book Day 2024! We had an author visit via Zoom today from John Patrick Green, the author of the "Investi-gators" book series. The children really enjoyed finding out how he became an author and an illustrator. Keep up the fantastic reading, Willow class! 

5/3/24- Please find our spellings for the rest of this term below. Your child will have their number of spellings highlighted in their homework book each week.

It is also important that children are reading and being listened to every day. We do try to do this in school also, however please do continue to listen to your child read, even if it is only one or two pages each night.

As you may already know, parents evening is coming up on Monday 18th March 2024, from 1-7pm. I am looking forward to meeting with you to discuss your child's progress and learning! To book an appointment, please log in to Horizons and choose a slot. 

Thank you for your ongoing support with your child's homework and learning. Any questions, feel free to grab me for a chat.

CLICK HERE to hear what three of our children did this week in Lawn Primary Podcast! They really did Willow class proud!

26/1/24- In design and technology, we have been learning about information design and are in the process of designing an electronic poster about the Romans! Today, we explored electrical items, components and circuits. These will be used in our electronic posters. More photos to follow once the posters are complete! 

24/1/24- In history, we are learning about the Romans. Today, Willow class designed and made some Roman style shields, ready to be used in our next history lesson! 

Homework reminder- Children will have homework sent home every Wednesday in their homework book with their weekly spellings. Homework will need to be completed and returned by the following Tuesday (the original hand in date was Monday).

 

Homework is a crucial part of the children's learning, as it consolidates previous learning or introduces them to a new topic or idea. Homework club is on every Friday, whereby the children are supported in completing their homework with Mrs Wilson. To sign your child up for this, please visit the office.

 

Thank you for your ongoing support with your child's learning.

Welcome back! 9/1/24

 

Welome back to school! Firstly, I would like to congratulate year 3 once again for putting on an amazing Christmas performance- they worked so hard and myself and Miss Atkinson are immensely proud of them, as we are sure you are too.

We hope you had a restful, safe and enjoyable break.

This term, there are lots of exciting learning opportunities for the children and even a visit from Lullingstone Roman Villa!  

 

Just a quick reminder regarding reading books. Please ensure you are listening to your child read daily. This only needs to be one or two pages of their reading book, and if you could note this down in your child's reading record too, that would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks for your ongoing support and if you have any questions feel free to catch me for a chat!

Welcome to the Willow class page!

Welcome back! This year, Miss Fulling and Miss Atkinson will be working with you throughout year 3. We are both very excited and looking forward to an amazing year ahead. Please see above for a copy of our term 1 plan. 

Important notices: 

  • Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children need to come into school in their PE kit ready for the lesson.
  • Homework will come home every Wednesday and needs to be completed and returned by the following Monday.
  • Children are also expected to read at home and practice their spellings throughout the week. This does not have to be strenuous or long, it could be five minutes each night just going through their spellings of the week and reading for a few minutes.
  • Your child's TimeTable Rockstars login will be given to them in their homework book, as well as their Lexia login, which can both be accessed from home. 

If you have any questions or queries, feel free to catch me for a chat after school. 

School trips: 

I am pleased to announce that we have two exciting trips booked for this year! The dates for these are as follows:

  • Kew Gardens- Thursday 12th October 2023- This trip relates to the children's art lessons, where they will be looking at botanical drawings and shading. This trip will allow the children to observe and sketch different plants and flowers, enhancing their brilliant drawing, sketching and shading skills. The cost of this trip is £28. 
  • Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studios- Thursday 16th May 2024- In term 3, the children will be immersed into the magical world of Harry Potter, with both the books and the films being used to enhance their writing and drama in English. We have booked a workshop, which focuses on the art of foley (how sound affects are made for films!). The children will get a chance to be a foley artist and make sound effects for clips of the films. Children will also complete the studio tour. This day will be slightly longer (Children need to be in school by 8:30am and will return by 5:30pm). 

The total cost for the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio tour trip in May 2023 is £32. The school and INEOS money have put £300 towards this trip to help reduce the cost. There is an option to pay for this trip in monthly installments.
