Welcome to Class 3!
In Class three, our teacher is Mr Laws. Here is some information about our week and what we need to remember.
We need to return our homework folder to school on a Friday. Please do not return it any other day. This folder contains our weekly spelling practise, times table practise, our reading book and our homework book. It will be given out again on a Monday.
PE is on a Thursday afternoon. We come to school wearing our PE kit. We wear blue joggers, a red polo shirt and a blue sweatshirt (with no hood). On warm days, we can come to school wearing shorts underneath our joggers so shorts can be worn for PE. Thursday afternoon, we also have our afterschool club which is Curling! It is very exciting.
We have a spelling test on a Friday. We work hard at home and at school to learn these each week. We get new spellings for the week on the following Monday. We also have a times table test on a Friday which we must work hard to practise. We are practicing our times tables furiously.
If you have any questions or queries about Class 3 or your child, please feel free ring the office to arrange an appointment to speak to Mr Laws who would be delighted to help.
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.
