Week 5 Spellings
Please help your child to practice these spellings at home. Children can write these spellings into their reading diary in the space provided. Each child should know the spellings that they need to learn as they will be introduced to them each Monday. Children will be tested on their spellings each Friday.
Year 3 Class wish
At the start of this year, each class chose a wish that they would like to see acted out in their class. After much discussion, we decided that our class wish is 'to be respectful and show maturity in all that we do'.
This means that we follow school rules, try our best and show mature behaviour not only in the classroom, but in all aspects of school activities.
At the beginning of each half-term, a child will be chosen who we feel has shown that they have been helping to make the wish come true by their words and actions. The chosen child will win 10 house points for their house team.
We visited Ryton Garden Organic to learn more about plants, whilst there we saw heritage vegetables growing throughout the seasons, spent time in their sensory garden, learnt about organic gardening therapy project and composting.
We took part in 4 workshops these included learning about the lifecycle of a plant, looking at seed dispersal within soil, investigating seeds this included looking at the size and shape of them. The last workshop we used the gardens to find different sized leaves to learn about photosynthesis.
After the workshops we had a walk around the gardens, looking at all the different plants. We were able to pick some pumpkins and saw how the pumpkins grew once the plant had flowered. Later on we visited the orchard and had the opportunity to pick a selection of organic apples from the trees.
In the afternoon we made our own newspaper pots and planted rocket and radish seeds. We then had time to enjoy the gardens, looking at plants and completing observational drawings, some of us used the ipads to photograph our favourite plants.
What a fantastic day!
