What have we been learning this week? WC 10.09.18


Another lovely week settling into our new classroom and routines as part of Key Stage 2.

In English, we have been sequencing the story of the Pied Piper which the children did fantastically. Following on from this, we have begun planning our own version of the popular tale with our own made up characters and instruments. The children will begin to write their own versions next week in stages throughout the week.

In Maths, we have continued learning about place value and the number system. The children have been counting on and in back in multiples of 50 and have been comparing numbers up to 1000.

In Creative, the children have started learning about the Plague. They have learnt some gruesome facts linked to causes, symptoms and treatments of the deadly disease which they found very interesting!

Towards the end of the week, some of the children planned speeches to stand as candidates for this year’s school council. The standard of the speeches was excellent so well done to all who delivered their speeches in front of an audience. The ballot papers are being counted over the weekend and the new councillors will be announced next week!

Have a restful weekend,

Team 3DS

What have we been learning this week? WC 4.09.18


The children have had a wonderful start to the new school year in Class 3DS. They have grown so much over the summer holidays and have already begun to show signs of independence during their first few days in Key Stage 2! It’s been such a hectic week settling in to a new classroom with new surroundings and routines but everyone has tried so hard. Despite it only being a four day week, we have managed to cram lots in…

In English, we have started our new unit on Fairy tales. The children have completed book reviews and some character work linked to popular fairy tale stories. We have also read, ‘The Pied Piper’ and have compared it to the Disney animation version. The children have completed some speaking and listening activities in the role of characters from the story which they also thoroughly enjoyed!

On Wednesday, we had a visit from Paul Cookson (a poet) who proved very popular with both the children and staff. We completed a workshop in the hall and amongst other activities, composed and performed our very own poem linked to fairy tales all in the space of 45 minutes!

In Maths, we have been recapping on our knowledge of place value and the number system. The children have been reading and writing numbers in words and numerals up to and including thousands. We have also been using place value equipment to complete some problem solving activities.

In Creative, we have begun our new topic, ‘The Plague’. The children have discussed their knowledge of past events and have shown good understanding of London in 1666 compared to 2018.

On Thursday, we had a Jujitsu taster session which was great. If your child is interested in attending an extra-curricular Jujitsu club then please return he reply slip from the letter given out.

Well done to all the children this first week back, let’s reach for the stars this year!


Have a lovely weekend whatever the weather,
