CLASS 4W 2018-2019
Welcome To 4W
Welcome to 4W, we have made a fantastic start to the year settling in to our new class and routines. This term (Autumn 2) we will be learning about electricity in science, continuing to find out about the Ancient Egyptians and starting our swimming sessions on a Friday. We are looking forward to our trip to Derby Museum on the 21st November - we will share photographs of this on our class page.
We had a fantastic afternoon with Jove's mum learning about sound waves, and hertz watching the sound fountain.
Year 4 Ancient Egypt Homework
We had a lovely afternoon playing the board games we had designed with a focus on Ancient Egypt. Our games were all really different and exciting to play.
Derby Museum Trip
4W had a great time exploring all the different rooms and artefacts around the museum in the morning, after lunch we met Aziza the wife of an Egyptian advisor to the Pharaoh. She taught us about her life in Egypt. We also had a go at mummifying one of the class. We made our own Shabti's to go in the pyramid with us. We all found the real mummy fascinating. What a great day !!
Chinese New Year
We had a great time meeting our visitors from China. They taught us all about Chinese New Year and the different ways it is celebrated. We especially loved creating our ink panda pictures.
We had a fantastic residential trip to Castleton in March. We did lots of activities in preparation for our new topic on Rivers. Gem panning was very popular along with Fossil hunting. However the class agreed our favourite activity was the River walk, we were very wet by the end of it but had a great time with our friends.
We have had such an amazing first half term in Year 3! In literacy, we have been retelling Boudicca's story, writing a diary entry as a citizen of Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted, created our own stories and even created our own set of instructions when we made rocky road! What a lot of learning we have been doing!
In maths, we have been busy practising column addition, column subtraction, practising our times tables, looking at properties of 3D shapes and learning about the meaning of the word inverse. Can you remember what it means?
Welcome to 3W!
Welcome to year 3 ! What an exciting year we are going to have! We are so pleased and proud how well all of the children have settled into the juniors. All of the children seem to have done a lot of growing up over the summer, especially with their confidence!
This first half term is based all around the Rotten Romans. We really appreciate all of the continued support sending in your Roman themed pieces of homework. We have had some fantastic pieces so far! We are very excited to celebrate Roman Day on the 19th October.
