Year 3 & 4- Willow

Welcome to Willow Class. 

 

Mr Bryant- Class Teacher    Mrs Satchell- Class Teaching Assistant   Miss Green - 1:1 Teaching Assistant

 

What an amazing start to the year 3&4 Kingfisher Project. The children took part in 5 different activities today from baking their on bread to searching for bones in owl pellets.

Our topic this term will be: Lets Investigate. 

 

Willow Class will be focusing on carrying out science investigations to see what happens when we change the states of matter. On Earth, all matter  exists in one of three different states: solid, liquid or gas. 

We will spend time looking at how to set out and write up scientific investigations, as well as investigating what happens from a molecules point of view when it is changing state. 

 

Our P.E. will be athletics and cricket. 

 

Home work will be handed out on a Thursday or Friday and expected back in by Wednesday. 

Spellings will be handed out on Friday. 

Please continue to record any reading in your reading records and keep going with those times tables. 

Please see the news letter for more information. 

 

As usual, don't hesitate to come and see us if you have any queries. 

We tried our hand at some abstract art today in the style of Cy Twombly. You will be able to see the finished work on Friday afternoon.

On Tuesday, Willow and Maple Class went on a walk around our local area. Willow Class planned a route the day before and marked off interesting trees along the way. We found a magnificent oak tree in the field opposite Castle Street.

We've had a visit from the Forestry Commission. They taught us how to measure the circumference of a tree trunk using string and how to estimate the height of a tree.

This week, the whole school was visited by a magical tree to start off our tree week. It appeared mysteriously after break time and had vanished by lunch. This lead to some interesting report writing from Willow Class.

What fantastic couple of weeks we have had after the Christmas break. Our animal topic is in full swing and the children have produced some fantastic work. Here are a selection of photos from our artist study on Henri Rousseau.

Human history is full of invention. Many of these inventions seem pretty commonplace to us today, until we stop to think about what the world would have been like without them. Pottery was one of the first great inventions in history to truly transform human lives and societies. Here we have attempted to create our very own Stone Age pinch pots.

Following our theme of senses, we looked at how we could sort objects into more than one. Using Venn diagrams, we put things into one category or both. There was some fantastic teamwork during this task.

In English we have been looking at using our senses to help us create exciting writing. To help us went to the forest school area and used our senses to make our very own hats. Some children designed theirs using their sight and others using their touch. Don't panic. No one used taste to make a hat.

How do we know about the Stone Age? Today we became archaeologists and discovered evidence of the Stone Age by carefully uncovering artifacts left by those thousands of years ago.

What a first couple of weeks back. A big well done to everyone for a brilliant start to the year. Here are a couple of photos of what we have been up to.
