Leeds Museum Trip- 30th June 2017

Hawthorn Class Blog

Auto or biography

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

This week in Hawthorn class, we have been researching J K Rowling, the author of Harry Potter. We have found out lots of facts about her life and were very surprised to hear how much she was worth!! We plan to write a biography about her next week to run alongside us reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (we are more than halfway through!).

In our topic lessons we have focussed on Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and have written descriptions of the main ones. We are working in partners to conduct our own 'Egypt's got talent!' next week, where we will present our descriptions and actions for the Gods. The children are really excited about this, as am I!

In maths, we have continued to look at digital time and how this shows us times to the hour e.g. 50 minutes means ten to. This has been a little confusing, but the children have worked really hard at this and it is clicking (or ticking!).

This week's spellings are:

climb

thumb

happiness

unhappy

everybody

know

angrily

carefully

cautiously

surprisingly

Happy practising!

Have a great weekend everyone, I've heard it is meant to be beautiful!

A beautiful week!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

What a wonderful week we have had this week- well treated to the gorgeous weather and with our hard work!

The children have made a fantastic effort with their newspaper reports this week and have researched lots of information about the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb! Very professional! They have also researched Egyptian gods and goddesses and their mythical powers. It has been such an interesting week, and both the children and I have learnt a lot! So much so that this week's homework is set around our Egyptian topic. We would like you to design a poster to demonstrate what you have learnt so far. You could include pictures, writing, facts and trivia about Egypt. I'll look forward to seeing these on Wednesday!

In maths we have continued to look at time, focusing mainly on digital time and comparing this to analogue. We have also written the time in words and matched all three together! Go us!

This week's spellings are:

although

caught

different

early

enough

often

peculiar

special

every

misbehave

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend! Try to remember this one is only two days rather than the luxury of the three we had last week!

Welcome back!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

I hope you all had a wonderful break away! We have loved being treated to some sunny weather this week and have made the most of being outside without getting soggy.

This week we have begun our new topic of Egyptians, and the children are loving it already!! We have already learnt lots of facts and are thirsty to discover more! Please feel free to send anything you find out at home in to school to share with everyone, we would love to see. By the time these children get to Summer, they will be archaeologists already!

In maths, we have taken mini a break from fractions and have started to look at time. In year 3, we will be looking at both digital and analogue time, including roman numerals. Any practise at home for this maths topic is good practise, so please feel free!

This week's spellings are all words with silent letters:

answer

island

length

strength

knock

climbed

taught

night

knight

pyramid

Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend everyone. Hopefully the sun will continue, although I hear we may be getting a little bit of thunder... uh oh!

HAPPY EASTER!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

What a busy week we have had! We absolutely LOVED the Easter bingo the PSA organised! We had lots of fun taking part and even were lucky enough to win some eggs in the raffle. Lucky us!

We enjoyed taking part in science day on Wednesday. We made moving skeletons, combined cornflour and water to make a concoction called 'oobleck'. It was a very strange mixture which sometimes felt hard, but was also runny! How bizarre. We hope you enjoyed looking at our work in the hall after school and our posters.

This holiday's spellings are:

business

consider

decide

experience

increase

mention

notice

position

separate

thought

Happy practising! 

I hope you all have an egg-celent break with plenty of fun times! I look forward to hearing all your stories when you return to school on the 16th!

Spring has sprung!

joanne on: Hawthorn Class Blog

It has been a much sunnier week in Hawthorn class and is definitely starting to feel like Spring!

This week, we have begun to adapt our stories of the Egyptian Cinderella and make them our own. We have acted out the story and developed freeze frames. We have also looked at verbs and acted out how adverbs can change these. We were surprised how much impact one word can have! In maths we have continued to look at fractions and are getting very good at understanding the concept of these!

This week's spellings are:

century

complete

enough

favourite

group

knowledge

popular

promise

strange

through

Happy practising! Next week is only a four day week and then we break up for the Easter holidays. Time really has flown! If you get chance, please can you complete the parent survey on our website/ app. It only takes two minutes and it would be lovely to hear your thoughts :)

In other news, the school choir are performing at Morley Town Hall tomorrow at 9:50. If you are around Morley doing your shopping, it would be lovely to see your faces! I will be there, humming along.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you all on Monday!
