Maple Class have had an excellent term of learning and experiences. Our English lessons have seen some outstanding portrayals of a journey that captures the various features of a river. We have also written detailed fact files on bats relating to our talk for writing unit. In mathematics, we have surfed through money with many of the children enjoying activities such as ‘Grumpy shopkeeper, matching pairs, party planner and royal reasoning’.
Topic lessons have been so enjoyable with our shadow theatre creations and performances, our sensory experiments on different rocks and writing up our reports on our findings.
Our RE lessons have been so exhilarating. We acted out the story of Rama and Sita, learnt about the Hindu Gods and made links between them and our personalities. We consolidated our understanding with an amazing trip to a Hindu Temple where the children asked their final questions on the topic. Another fantastic term for Maple Class, Mr Smith cannot wait for the next one! Enjoy the break you thoroughly deserve it
Maple class have had a wonderful term of learning. We have followed the story of Jack and the Beanstalk: writing innovated tales and our own adventure stories in search of a ‘Magic Ring’. We have written some amazing Haikus on the topic of Christmas and even written instructions on how to put on a Nativity. Maple learners have breezed through their addition and subtraction focus and are now getting stuck into multiplication and division. All members of Year 3 have had fantastic attitude towards all areas of learning in Maths. Our topic of the UK has seen us learning some basic map skills and directional instructions from our topic book ‘At the Beach’ by Roland Harvey. We have written fact files on UK mountains and written poetry by using the language associated with the coast. We have had some excellent trips, a sound workshop preparing us for the Year 4 focus next year and ‘The Christmas Experience’, which was a lovely insight into the story of Jesus Christ and why it is important to Christians. Well done Maple class, wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Maple class have completed their final term with outstanding effort and attitude. We have been writing persuasive letters to Mr Kirke asking him to join his class in Year 4. The children have described all the qualities they have and explained what they are looking forward to. In Maths we have been enjoying some dice games which the children can easily play at home! Sports day was a huge success with everyone demonstrating their athletic attributes. We thoroughly enjoyed our splendid trip to Cheddar Gorge and Caves, in which we learnt a tremendous amount on the Stone Age and the beauty of the caves. We were lucky to experience a visit from the Mounted section of Avon and Somerset police, the children watched a demonstration of Jack being handcuffed (voluntarily), and even trained Rolo for loud crowd noises. Our forest school trip at Clifton College sports ground was a great success. All the children completed the cross country course twice! We also learnt how to build a campfire and cooked marshmallows as a delicious treat. A huge congratulations to everyone in Maple class this year, we have had some amazing experiences!
