Welcome to Class 3!
Mrs Gaye is our teacher. Here is some information about our week and what we need to remember.
We need tonhand homework in on a Monday. It will be given out again on Wednesday.
PE is on a Tuesday afternoon. We keep our PE kits in school so we don’t forget them
On Wednesday we have forest school so we need to remember wellies and outdoor clothing to change into especially in the winter months.
We also have a spelling test on Wednesday. We get new spellings for the week after given out on a Thursday.
On Thursday we have our times table test which we must work hard to practise. We all want times table hands on our tree!
On Fridays we have PE again. This term we are swimming so we need to remember our swimming kit.
Today we told the rest of our school all about the lovely work we have done through the Whispering Woods project. We got to listen to our soundscape for the first time.
’I wish we could do the project again. My favourite bit was doing the recording at Hamsterly Forest. I’ve learnt lots of bird’s names like blue tit, blackbird, robins, owls and woodpeckers.’ Gracie
We are taking part in a community project called Whispering Woods where we are looking at habitats of our local area and comparing it to that of Hamsteley Forest. We will also compare the wildlife we see today with that of the past. Is there any difference? Why might there be a difference?
Today we looked at habitats and where small animals might live. We made our own little habitats for our toy animal. We thought about where our particular animal might like to live and why.
We carried out a rock survey today to find out what the bedrock of Tow Law is. We looked at old buildings such as houses and the church. We found the rock they were made of was crumbly, and grainy. It was a sandy colour and we found evidence that it eroded easily. We think the bedrock of Tow Law is sandstone, a sedimentary rock. We found sandstone was used for all sorts in our village for example, building houses, carving signs and building walls.
We also looked at some man made rocks and the jobs that it was used for.
