Class Blog for Class 3

  of 3   Next    

Hello from Mrs Horn 

Just thought I would say a quick hello!

I hope you are all keeping well and are able to spend some time together as well as having fun! I hope that you have found the resources I uploaded on my previous blog useful to support home learning and have found a routine that works for you.

I have heard from a few children about what they have been up to, I miss seeing you all each day and would love to hear from more of you :)

Charlie and Millie sent me an email to tell me all about their week. They have spent some time with their cousins exploring the outdoors and completed a scavenger hunt. They then decorated a paper plate with the items they found- I think they look fantastic! They also completed a times table challenge and spent more time outside running around their fields and planting seeds. Well done for completing some excellent home learning!

Cammie and Jacob also look like they have had a fun filled week of home learning where they had some practical Roman fun with maths, art and English on the side! They built a Roman camp, a damn, a viaduct, a campfire and a catapult. They sent me a video of them using the catapult, it looked very well made and I could tell they were having lots of fun! They also drew around each other to make Celt soldiers and had a game of archery where they said they both won £10! Well done for continuing our Roman topic, you have had a great week of home learning.

Florence has been exploring the outdoors with her siblings during their daily exercise and she is writing a diary each day to record their learning adventures.

After the Easter holidays I shall be uploading more resources but if you have any questions before or want to say hello, then please do get in touch… rhorn@pelyntprimary.co.uk


 


Home Learning Blog 1 Week Commencing 23rd March 2020 

In such unprecedented times we are developing ways to support the children in their home learning, so please see below for information. Thank you for your support so far and I hope we can support you too, particularly with your child’s learning.

The children who were in school at the end of last week came home with a home learning book. This is to ensure that they can collate all the learning that they do at home. These class blogs will provide regular home learning tasks and activities that can be completed over the course of a week.

We understand that being isolated at home is going to be challenging, and we also know that many parents/carers will have to continue working at home during this time. Therefore, whilst we are setting work, we also appreciate how difficult this may be. During this first week we have provided some simpler tasks. We hope that this will enable you and your child to establish a routine whereby you can make time for home learning. After Easter we will be able to provide more focused tasks to offer opportunities for challenge and new learning.

Please find attached the documents you will need this week to support your child and the following website links that may be useful. I have uploaded the homework grid that was in homework books during the Spring term, there are some suggestions of activities that the children could complete to continue their learning about the Romans.

After the Easter break, we will continue this on a weekly basis and will keep you informed of any updates. So please look at the class blog again on Tuesday 14th April and each week from then onwards.

Some children were absent at the end of last week and will therefore not have received a home learning book. The class teachers will communicate directly via email with those parents after Easter, this will ensure that for those families no longer in isolation it may be possible to arrange collection of the children’s belongings and home learning books.

I would really like it if you were able to keep in touch with me via email as I would love to hear what you are all up to, you could send me pictures of some of your learning or even a little note about what you have been doing. I’m sure your parents wouldn’t mind helping you send me an email now and again. Remember, I am at the end of an email and I am able to help you and answer your questions, so please don’t worry about a thing. I will miss our fun and learning challenges we experience together in Class 3 each day and I look forward to opening the door to you all when we return to school. Keep safe and have fun!

Week ending Friday 13th March 2020 


Yet another week has whizzed by in Class 3!

During English this week we have been exploring direct and reported speech where we had to be aware of the tense change and the punctuation we needed to use when using direct speech. We then identified and retrieved vocabulary from different newspaper reports which we then recorded to make our own word bank which will help us with the planning and writing of our own newspaper report. At the end of the week we conducted research to find facts that we would like to include in our reports.

In Maths we completed our statistics learning by answering questions about data, collecting and recording our own data and presenting our results in a chart of our choice. We then began our next strand of learning which is time. To begin with some of us were refreshing our memory of sequencing events and understanding typical vocabulary to describe different times of the day. Others of us were recapping months and years where we were problem solving whilst others were investigating lengths of time by using multiplication and division to convert units of time. It would be great if you could practise telling the time at home too as it is such an essential, valuable skill.

Our History learning this week saw us learn about Roman inventions where we discussed what they invented and which inventions are still in use today and considered how they had changed. We then worked together to research, design and build our own aqueducts which will be put to the test next week! We also learnt about trade in the Roman era and have developed an understanding of imports and exports. We all played a Roman trader game where we each started with 40 denarius and had to buy items. We then read a forecast for the year and saw whether we had made a profit or had a loss at the end of the year. Some of us were really sensible with our denarius and managed to listen to the forecast and ended up in profit but some of us were bankrupt after the second year! Some future investors within Class 3 I think!

In our PE lessons we are focusing on netball where we have been practising the different skills and have begun to learn the rules of the game. It is great to see the enthusiasm of the children who are keen to join in and try their very best. We have some very strong players within the class who are confident at attacking and defending. We continue to work on our teamwork and understanding how to celebrate our win whilst considering the feelings of the other team!

As a school, we completed some physical activities for Sports Relief as well as having assemblies to inform our children. It was great to see how much the children already knew and how they showed an understanding of those less fortunate than themselves. Thank you to everybody who made a donation to Sports Relief.

Week ending Friday 6th March 2020 

We have had a great week in Class 3, full of new and exciting learning experiences, including World Book Day on Thursday which saw us have a day full of book- related activities.

During English this week we have been exploring headlines and sub headlines and wrote our own based on pictures or statements that we were given. We learnt about what headlines should include and had some fun experimenting with word play where we tried to create headlines that contained puns and alliteration. After that, we worked collaboratively to identify, retrieve and record the 5 W’s and 1 H in a range of different reports. We also developed our understanding of fact and opinion where we distinguished between fact and opinion by identifying which statements were fact and opinion before writing our own statements.

In Maths we were covering a few different learning objectives including understanding tally charts, presenting and interpreting data in pictograms and bar charts as well as solving comparison, sum and difference problems. We are all focusing on our presentation in maths, especially using the squares and lines within our books to help us when laying out tables, charts and graphs!

Our Geography learning this week saw us further develop our understanding of physical and human geographical features within the UK and Italy. We made comparisons between the features by conducting our own research.

During PSHE we continued with the theme of ‘good to be me’ where we were thinking of ways that we could be kind to ourselves. We came up with ideas such as laughing each day, drinking more water, going for a walk and laughing with friends. We also discussed worries and how we need to respect other peoples worries as what may seem like a small or insignificant worry to us, may be a huge worry to them. Following on from this, we discussed strategies we could use to try and help us with specific worries and how we may try and use them to support us.

Our history learning this week saw us develop our understanding of Hadrian’s Wall- we watched some video clips that really brought the history to life and gave us a better understanding of why and when it was built, along with features of the wall. We wrote a non-chronological report to demonstrate our new found knowledge and shared these with the rest of the school in sharing assembly on Wednesday.

It was great to see the excitement within the classroom on World Book Day, the children all enjoyed wearing their pyjamas to school and sharing their books with their friends. I know the children enjoyed the whole school reading session that we completed where they read a story to a child in Class 1, it was great to see the children of different ages showing a love of reading. We completed various activities throughout the day including writing a book review and designing an alternative front cover for the books we had bought in. As a class we focused on the book ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker which is a wordless book with some fantastic illustrations. We discussed the book and made predictions, generated vocabulary, gave summaries and inferred how the girl was feeling at different points in the book. We also created a storyboard where we drew our own pictures and wrote the words to accompany them that we imagined would be written in the book. During the afternoon we completed an art-based activity where we aimed to develop our drawing skills by drawing in perspective. We did find it quite tricky but we ended up with some great results that the children should be so proud of! The children then drew a background of their choice which will sit behind a ‘magic door’ which we will finish off next week. I’m sure they can tell you about the ‘magic door’ which is a key part of the story.

*Class 3 parent consultations will take place on Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th March. Please sign up using the book opposite the office. **Please note that there will not be any after school clubs on these days**

Week ending Friday 28th February 2020 


Welcome back! We hope you all had a wonderful half term; it was great to hear from the children about all of the exciting things they had been up to. They also wrote a recount about their half term which they shared with a peer and then discussed through questioning.

Well done to those children who successfully completed their Level 1 Bikeability this week- I know Mrs Nash was very impressed with your skills and competence.

During English this week we edited our persuasive letters before writing up our final drafts and sharing them with others. We then started our new learning journey which will see a progression in skills along the way until we complete the journey by writing our own newspaper report. So far, we have discussed the purpose of a newspaper report/article, read and discussed a range of reports and then identified the key features and began to explain them.

In Maths we have started a new strand of learning- statistics. To begin with, we discussed what we already knew about statistics and then moved on to understanding and recording tallies in tally charts. We have also started to look at pictograms where we have been reading and interpreting them and clarifying our understanding of linked vocabulary such as altogether, fewer, difference etc.

Our Geography learning this week saw us understanding physical and human geographical features within the UK. We had to explain whether they were human or physical features and the locate them on a map of the UK, using an atlas to support us.

During PSHE we were focusing on a theme of ‘good to be me’ where we were understanding and recognising self-worth. We read a story about a mouse and some other animals which had a clear message that the children explained very well. We then listed all of the positive things about us inside a person shape and then listed our achievements and thought about some of the changes we were going to make going forwards. Some great input, discussion and ideas from the children, I was impressed! 

We are in the process of re-vamping our book corner to ensure that we have some good quality books that are interesting to the children and cover a range of genres. So, this week I returned from half term with lots of new or pre-loved books which the children decided to sort into genres so that it would be easier to find a specific book when they are all on the shelf. They came up with the idea to label some baskets and the books will be stored in this way. I mentioned to the children that we don’t have many magazines so if they had any suitable magazines at home that they no longer wanted and wished to donate to the class then they would be gratefully received.

*World Book Day- Thursday 5th March. This year our theme is ‘Snuggle up with a Story’. The children can come to school in their pyjamas or onesies and bring a book to share with others. We will be having a book tombola, where children can bring in a book that they no longer want to keep. They will then be allowed to swap it for one that another child has brought in. We also have a number of books that will add to this collection, so that there will be more choice available for the children.

*Class 3 parent consultations will take place on Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th March. Please sign up using the book opposite the office.

*Sports Relief week- starts on Monday 9th March. At school this year we shall be having a daily assembly focus and a physical activity of some sort every day to raise awareness of this special week. There will be a collection pot in the school office should anyone wish to make a donation. Thank you.

*Bake Lakes run- Friday 6th March. A letter was sent out yesterday- please return replies to the office.

Things to remember for the next week:

*Forest school clothes need to be in school for Tuesday afternoon

*P.E kits will be needed for Friday afternoon

Week ending Friday 14th February 2020 

*Forest School will be on a Tuesday afternoon during Spring term 2 so children will need their forest school clothes for the first day back (Tuesday 25th February)

*P. E will be on a Friday afternoon during Spring term 2 so please ensure PE kits are in school for Friday.

*Bikeability- reminder that this will take place on Wednesday 26th February (afternoon)- please check previous letter detailing what the children need to bring. Please remember to send your child in with warm clothes, a coat and suitable footwear.

*Landrake run letters to be returned to the office if you are participating.


We have had a super last week of this half term in Class 3 full of learning challenges and opportunities. As previously mentioned, we will be continuing our Roman topic after the half term break. I have printed another copy of the homework grid (same as Spring 1) but changed the dates at the bottom for parents/carers to sign off when the children have completed spelling/times table practise. I have kept the same activity choices- if you would like any other ideas please feel free to ask.

In English this week we have been researching, retrieving, summarising and recording information from a range of texts which will support us when we continue with our persuasive letter writing after half term. We have also been using Roman subject terminology within our writing this week which we will be able to add to our letter. Towards the end of the week we planned our persuasive letter and have begun to write our first draft. We shall continue this on our return to school.

During Maths we have completed our fraction learning and some children have been investigating decimals. One group were finding three quarters and counting in fractions. Another group focused on ordering and comparing fractions and the final group continued their decimal learning with understanding hundredths, representing hundredths on a place value grid and problem solving.

Our History learning this week focused around understanding why the Romans invaded Britain and about Julius Caesar’s first invasion. We all had lots of questions about this and look forward to delving further into the history next half term.

In Science we completed our ‘light’ learning. This week we planned and carried out an investigation into how distance affects the size of shadows. We worked in groups to set up and record our results in a table, we then had a go at using a line graph to present the data and then drew our conclusions and considered which other variables we could include if we were to complete the investigation again.

We had our final gymnastics session led by Arena this week where we were consolidating our learning from the previous five weeks putting together our sequences which were made up of various rolls, balances and jumps. We had to self-assess our performance against a criteria of bronze or silver. I was impressed with some of the amazing gymnasts that we have in Class 3! Well done to everyone in Class 3 for participating and challenging themselves to try something new.

We would like to thank Class 4 for their presentation they gave us in class on Thursday afternoon about living and eating healthily. They shared their knowledge with us through an informative PowerPoint and showed us plates displaying healthy meal choices. They also answered some tricky questions that we asked them... very well! Well done and thank you again Class 4.

*World Book Day- Thursday 5th March. This year our theme is ‘Snuggle up with a Story’. The children can come to school in their pyjamas or onesies and bring a book to share with others.

*Class 3 parent consultations will take place on Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th March. A letter will be sent out after half term with further information.

Have a fabulous half term break!

Week ending Friday 7th February 2020 

We are nearing the end of a busy, fun packed half term full of wonderful learning opportunities where we have all enjoyed learning about the Romans. We will continue our Roman topic after half term, I know the children are already looking forward to continuing their learning.

In English this week we have all written a recount of our Roman Day and have tried really hard to focus on the quality of our writing as well as the presentation. We had some great final pieces and enjoyed sharing these with the rest of the school in sharing assembly. Towards the end of the week we began our new learning journey where our end result will be a persuasive letter to the head of the Roman army persuading them to let us join up! So far, we have discussed, identified and explained the features of a persuasive letter and looked at examples of ‘what a good one looks like’. In one of our whole class guided reading sessions this week we looked at alternative versions of traditional stories, we read ‘Little Pink Riding Hood’ and discussed the similarities and differences between the traditional and alternative versions as well as answering questions before writing our own alternative version the next day.

In maths we continued with our fraction learning where different groups were focusing on various learning objectives. One group were developing their understanding of non-unit fractions and then looking at the equivalence of half and two quarters. Another group focused on equivalent fractions for the week and the final group started their decimal learning beginning with understanding tenths, representing tenths on a number line and in a place value grid and ended the week with learning how to divide a one-digit number by ten.

During DT this week we completed our plan- make- evaluate cycle where we evaluated against our design criteria and reflected on what went well, the problems we faced and overcame and how we would work differently next time. We are all proud of our efforts within DT and can’t wait to take our shields home!

In RE we revisited the Christian creation story and learnt about what the Sikh’s believe in regards to creation. We then made comparisons between the two ‘stories’ and retold them to our friends before making a vertical storyboard using words and pictures.

In Art this week we sketched and designed a Roman mosaic, once we were happy with it, we sketched it onto a tile and then painted it based on our original design. We are hoping to varnish them to give them a glossy finish this week!

Our PSHE lesson this week focused on what it means to have a ‘healthy mind’ and what bravery looks like. We shared our thoughts and experiences openly and respected what each other was saying and understood how important it is not to judge what somebody says and how they may feel sensitive about what they have shared.

Things to remember for next week:

*FOPS ‘Bag2School’ collection from Pelynt Pre-School on Wednesday 12th February at 9am. Please bag up any unwanted items of clean clothes/soft toys and drop off to the Pre-School. Please note no school or work uniforms are accepted. FOPS will then receive payment depending on the weight of the bags. Many thanks for your help in raising money for Pelynt Academy.

Week ending Friday 31st January 2020 


It feels like we have had an extremely busy week in Class 3 with lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities and experiences!

We completed our playscript learning journey in English this week which saw us evaluating and editing our own playscript, preparing for and performing our scripts to the class and completing self and peer assessments.

In maths we continued with our fraction learning where different groups were focusing on varying learning objectives. One group were recognising and finding a third and identifying unit fractions and another group were finding unit and non-unit fractions of shapes and amounts. The other group began by finding unit and non-unit fractions of quantities and then moved on to exploring tenths and hundredths.

During DT this week we moved on with our plan- make- evaluate cycle where we used our final design criteria to make our Roman shields. We had to measure and mark out our design on our cardboard before selecting tools to cut our materials. We then assembled our shields by ensuring items were secured correctly, whilst remembering how to work safely within the classroom around others.

In Science we planned an investigation to find out which materials were the most reflective. We wrote an aim, equipment list, method, prediction, recorded the results and wrote a conclusion. We had to consider the variables and how we would ensure it would be a fair test. We worked in groups to test the materials and then ranked the materials in order from least to most reflective.

Our music lesson this week was about exploring musical mood. We listened to some clips of music from a Roman inspired film and had to state how the music made us feel, which instruments we could hear, what we thought would be happening in the film and how the instruments created the musical mood. Some of us developed our musical vocabulary and were using this to describe what we could hear. Some of our musical vocabulary includes: tempo, pitch, staccato, legato, volume, beat and rhythm.

On Friday we had the highly anticipated Roman Day! The day was requested by the children and they all came up with ideas for the day that they wanted to do. The day just whizzed by so sadly we did not have time for them all! However, we had so much fun and enjoyed the activities we did complete. Here are some of the activities we did: learnt about Roman numerals and cracked a hidden message, ate a Roman breakfast, built a 3D chariot (this tested our resilience!), learnt about the story of Romulus and Remus and turned it into a comic strip, designed our own Roman soldier, watched some Horrible Histories, went on a Roman coin hunt, had a sword battle, carried out physical training activities that soldiers would have done to keep fit, played Harpastum and then finished the day with some reflection! We saw some absolutely fantastic costumes so thank you for your support with this! I know all of the children had a wonderful day.

Things to remember for next week:

*Return Bikeability letters to the office

*Forest school clothes need to be in school for Monday afternoon

*P.E kits will be needed for Tuesday afternoon

*Reading books and reading records need to be put in the book box every morning- please initial and comment in your child’s reading record so we can sign off their karate bands

Week ending Friday 24th January 2020 


Thank you to those of you who have donated cardboard to us, we now have enough cardboard to make our Roman shields!

In English this week we watched the film ‘Matilda’ and wrote character descriptions for both Matilda and Miss Trunchbull. We also planned and have began to write our own playscript scene based around Matilda playing a trick on her father.

In Maths, a range of learning objectives have been covered by different groups. Some of us have been focusing on recognising and finding a quarter and a third, some exploring adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator- including mixed number and improper fractions and another group looking at finding unit fractions of an amount.

Our DT learning this week saw us develop our design criteria for our Roman shields which we will use to help us when we begin to make the shields next week. We considered various aspects including safety, quality, method, equipment and concluded with an annotated sketch. *Some of the children were asking if they could bring in materials from home to help them decorate and make their shields next week. I have said this is fine and suggested that they may like to look in the recycling to see if they could put any of those materials to good use! *

In Geography we have been focusing on the UK where we have developed an understanding of the countries, counties and cities. We used maps to help us locate the different counties and cities and plotted these on our own map.

Our ICT learning this week began by recapping our understanding of internet safety and how we can keep ourselves safe and what to do if we see something we don’t think is right. We designed posters to explain the key messages. We also searched the internet for a program which enabled us to create our own Roman mosaics- we used this to create some fabulous, unique designs.

I must say the effort from some children with their homework is fantastic!! I was so pleased to lead our celebration assembly today and give the children certificates to celebrate their efforts with their homework. We have had some amazing mosaics, shields, swords, learning of Roman numerals, activities that Roman soldiers could have done to keep fit, times tables practise, spelling practise, Roman fact files… and much, much more!

Some children will have received a Bikeability letter today which will be taking place on 26th February. It is the level 1 award so those children who completed this last time will not have received a letter. Please return letters to the office at your earliest convenience, many thanks.

**ROMAN DAY**- we have decided as a class that we will be having a Roman day on Friday 31st January. If children would like to, they can dress up in a costume linked to the Romans, I know they all had some fabulous ideas for this! They will also be putting together a plan for the day on Tuesday which will detail the activities they will be completing during the day. They are all very excited about this! Any questions please feel free to ask.

Things to remember for next week:

*Forest school clothes need to be in school for Monday afternoon

*Please return Matilda consent forms*

Thank you to those of you who have donated cardboard to us so far, we are still in need of some more for our Roman shields, so if you have any, we would welcome it.

In English this week we have been focusing on the features of playscripts along with making edits to stage directions and exploring action and dialogue through drama. On Friday we began to plan our own scene for a playscript where Matilda causes some mischief and plays a trick on her father, we shall continue with this next week along with watching the film, creating character descriptions and writing our scene.

During Maths this week, a range of learning objectives have been covered by different groups. Some of us have been focusing on recognising and finding a half, some exploring unit and non-unit fractions and tenths as fractions and decimals and another group looking at fractions greater than 1 and equivalent fractions.

In History this week we have been exploring the Roman Empire and how it spread using a map to code Celtic and Roman land. We ordered key events on a timeline and discussed key dates such as the first invasion led by Julius Caesar. We also considered why the invasions happened and came up with lots of further questions we wanted to answer!

Our Science learning this week saw us begin our new strand of learning based around light. We were exploring light and how we have natural and man-made sources along with how what we think is a light source is actually a reflection. We will continue to look at reflective materials next week.

Thank you to Mrs Goddard for coming in to give us a talk on handwashing, we all enjoyed using the glo germ to see our hands under the UV light!
