Year 3 have had a wonderful term focusing on the ‘Miraculous journey of Edward Tulane’. We have finished the term off by looking into a missing person report, in which Edward Tulane was our victim. To help the investigators find Edward, we created fact files not only on Edward Tulane but on other specific topics, ranging from great white sharks to Mount Everest! Our outstanding artwork of Edward’s dreams has been held onto for as long as possible, and parents can now see the children’s creativity put to the test. We have thoroughly enjoyed our journey with Edward Tulane and will miss him very much.
We consolidated our learning of measurement in Maths and Art week by measuring our hands and fingers. The children looked out for many shapes within their surroundings and measured perimeters whenever possible! This has been encouraged by our flag pop art project. We have just dipped our toe into the water with fractions, so any encouragement at home would be appreciated.
A superb term of coding has also come to a close, which the children are experts in! Please do try and keep this going at home on computers or tablets! Well done Year 3- an awesome term of learning!

This term, Chestnut Class (Y2) have done lots of super learning in maths. We have focused on measurement, shape and fractions. During ‘Maths & Art Week’, we focused on measuring length whilst also creating our own versions of Mondrian’s famous primary colour paintings. The children worked so hard on their creations and should be so proud of their work!
In literacy, we’ve delved into different worlds using the ‘Talk for Writing’ text ‘How the World was Made’ as our impetus. We created worlds of chocolate; birthday worlds and even a fairy land!
We were lucky enough to take a trip up to Cotham School to spend an afternoon bouncing around on their gymnastics equipment! The children were able to put their previous gymnastics learning into action on their big, exciting equipment and they all had a fantastic time!

This term we had ‘Maths and Art Week’ where we looked at the artist Kandinsky. We used our mathematical knowledge of 2d and 3d shapes, symmetry and repeated patterns to help us develop our artistic skills. We created our own Kandinsky inspired paintings and a class frieze which we shared with the whole school in assembly.
In literacy, we learnt the story of ‘Monkey See Monkey Do’ and even changed the story using our own imaginative ideas.
