Class 3

Picture 1


Hello again Class 3!

Today’s focus is all about…



The learning for today is all about remembering to use capital letters and full stops correctly.

This lesson from BBC Bitesize is a fun way to support this learning.



This lesson includes a video introducing capital letters, a short introduction to full stops and three activities to complete. You do not have to complete  all the challenges in one day.

You could spread the learning over two days.


Click on the link below to get started.


Activity 1

Can you complete the Superhero challenge?



When you click on the game the options below will come up…



Activity 2 and 3

You will need a pencil and some paper for these challenges.

Remember to think carefully about your punctuation when writing your sentences!



Let’s revisit the website of the week...



Have you read any comics yet?

Which one has been your favourite so far? Why?



Re-reading is just as important as reading something new.

Make sure that you revisit the comics and books that you have read before as the more you practise the more fluent your reading will be.


Happy Learning everyone!

Uploading of learning will go back to the original days from next week onwards.

Please check the website every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for new learning challenges.

Take care!


Mrs Kitchen


Welcome back Class 3!


I hope that you have had a wonderful half term and that you are now ready for some new learning challenges.


Today we are going to focus on…



To learn more about this; click on the link below to take you to a lesson designed by

BBC Bitesesize daily.


There are 2 slideshows to go through first.

Once you have completed those, complete the 2 activities.


Can you get creative and make your own balancing scales using things that you have around your home?


Take a look at the pictures below and a video clip just to give you some ideas of

how balancing scales can be made.


You can use the balancing scales in different ways:


Try directly comparing 2 objects; 1 object in each part of the balance to determine which is the heaviest and lightest.


Put 1 object in 1 side of the balance and use a non-standard unit of measure in the other side to see how many it takes to balance the scales.

Non-standard units could be; grapes, beads, pennies, building blocks, counters etc.


**Note for parents**

When choosing non-standard units of measure make sure that what you choose is a uniform size eg building blocks all the same size (not huge ones and tiny ones combined)


The website of the week is…


phonics play




This website has some excellent reading materials and is a good alternative to using the online

e-books that I previously shared.


When you click on the link you will see the tabs shown below. Click on the tab ‘comics’.



You will then be shown a range of comics linked to your child's phonics phase.

Try and read 1 comic every day.



Happy learning everyone!

Your next set of learning challenges will be posted on

Thursday 4th June.

Take care!


Mrs Kitchen


Welcome back Class 3!

Are you ready for your final set of challenges for the week?


This is a big challenge with lots of different steps. It might be something that you choose to carry on throughout the holidays.


Let’s get creative with…




Can you design and create a minibeast hotel?


Let’s begin with the planning!


Think about which minibeasts you would like to attract to the hotel.

Can you research what environment they like to live in?




Take a look at some of these pictures below for some examples of different minibeast hotel ideas.



Now let’s begin the designing!


Draw a picture of what your minibeast hotel will look like and label it with what equipment and resources you will use to make each part. Here is an example.



**Finally it’s time to make your minibeast hotel! **



Don't forget to revisit the website of the week!



Investigate the rest of the website and pick something of your choice!

I wonder what you will decide to pick?


Remember to keep getting your grown ups to ask you questions. This will help check that you have been listening really carefully.


Happy learning everyone!

I hope that you all have a lovely and safe half term.

Your next set of learning challenges for the first week back after half term will be posted on

Tuesday 2nd and Thursday 4th June.

Take care!


Mrs Kitchen




Welcome to today’s learning Class 3!

Today our focus is literacy and it is all about…



Rhyming words are words that sound the same when spoken, they don't necessarily have the same spelling pattern. Take a look at these rhyming words.

Which words sound the same but have a different spelling pattern?


Now it’s your turn to have a go at rhyming.

Choose an animal and create a list of words that rhyme.



I picked ‘dog’. Here are the list of words that I could think of that rhymed.







Can you repeat this activity for 4 different animals?

Maybe you could do them all!


Let’s take your learning further…

We are now going to have a go at writing poems.



The poem we are going to try is a rhyming couplet.

Let’s revisit what a rhyming couplet is:

Rhyming Couplet is two lines of the same length that rhyme and complete one thought. There is no limit to the length of the lines. 


Use the same pictures as before to create some rhyming couplets based around the animals.



I have had a go at writing my own rhyming couplets.


There was a little frog,

he sat upon a log.



There was a little pig,

 it liked to wear a wig.



What ideas can you come up with?


**Note for grown-ups!**

You might want to spread the learning out. Spend the first day looking at rhyming words and the second day creating the poems; rather than doing it all in one session.


Let’s revisit the website of the week…



Why not check out the stories shown below?

There is a range of adventures in this collection for you to explore.



Click on the link below to get started:


Remember to get your adults to ask you lots of questions to check that you have understood the story!


Happy learning everyone!

Why don't you try and do something to help out around your home?

What about going to tidy your bedroom?

Take care and I will upload the final challenges on Friday.


Mrs Kitchen


Welcome back Class 3!


Hope that you have all had a lovely weekend and that you are ready for

some new learning challenges this week.


We start the week's learning with numeracy and today we are

going to revisit our learning on...



BBC Bitesize daily have produced a lovely session to support you with your learning of subtraction.




Click on the link below to take you to the lesson.



There is a video to watch first and 3 activities to complete.


Good Luck with your numeracy challenge!


Now let me introduce the new website of the week...


This week is all about developing your listening skills.  


Why not start by listening to some of the episodes of;

Maddie's Do you Know?


There are a range of short and interesting audio clips focusing on how things are

made or how things work.  I particularly enjoyed the 10 minute audio about popcorn.



**Note for the grown ups!**

Ask your child questions to see if they have understood and listened carefully.

It might be helpful to keep pausing part way through to ask questions, rather than waiting until the end.


Happy learning everyone!

Remember to keep your daily exercise going.

This week I am going to be completing some outdoor challenges in the garden.

How will you keep fit and healthy this week?


Mrs Kitchen




Welcome back everyone!


Here are your final challenges of the week.


Today we are going to focus on....



Watch these video clips about different materials and their properties.



This video shows a range of objects. Can you say what materials they are made from?




In this video clip, children look at objects in the street and talk about what materials they are made from.




What other materials can you think of?




Are you ready for your science challenge?



Can you complete a material hunt around your house?

What are the different things you find made of?




You do not need to print this off but I have added an example of how you could record what you have found.

Fold an A4 piece of paper into 5 and add the material titles at the top.

Alternatively you could do this activity verbally.

Simply talk about the objects around your home and what materials they are made from.



Your final challenge is to think about why objects are made out of certain materials.



Click on the link below which will take you to this BBC Bitesize page where you will find this picture.

Click on different objects in the room to find out what the different objects are made from and why!



Let's revisit the website of the week...



We have completed a lot of learning this week on reading words that you can blend.

Why not try reading some 'tricky words' this time?

These are the words that you cannot blend (sound out) so you just need to play lots of games so that you can remember and recognise them.


Click on your phase and look for this picture to start a game on 'tricky words'.




Happy learning everyone!

Hope you have a lovely weekend and I will post new learning for you on Monday.

Missing you all!


Mrs Kitchen


Welcome back Class 3!


Are you ready for your next learning challenges?



Today we are revisiting the learning that we have already done on common and proper nouns.

Can you remember the difference between them?

See if you can explain it to your grown up.



This lesson from BBC Bitesize provides a video to recap your learning on nouns. The lesson includes a video about minibeasts and some fun challenges to develop your writing skills.



Click on the link below to get started.


Let’s revisit the website of the week…



Keep the phonics ongoing. How about playing the buried treasure game?

 Click on your phase and find this picture icon to get started.




**Note to parents/carers**

Please ensure that your child is using ‘pure sounds’ when talking about letter sounds (phonemes).

I have attached a video for you to watch so that you can check if your child is enunciating the phonemes correctly or not. If the sounds are not pure; praise your child for their effort but please model the correct way to say the phonemes.





Click on the link below to watch the clip.



Happy learning everyone!

Revisit the page on Friday for your final set of challenges for this week.


Mrs Kitchen




Welcome back Class 3!


Hope you have had a lovely long weekend and that you

have enjoyed the warm weather!


Let’s get back to some more learning…




Today’s learning shows how making 10 can be a useful strategy when using addition and subtraction calculations. We call this strategy bridging through 10.

The lesson today includes 1 video and 2 activities.


Click on this link to get started


Let’s look at the website for this week…


Here is another phonics website that will support with your child's phonic development.

There are lots of different games to access.

The website has given a temporary username and password so that you can access the activities for free.





The games are organised in phases to suit the needs of individual children.

Please refer back to the table below which shows the phonics class teacher of your

child and their related phonics phase.


**Please select the phase that your child is on to make sure they understand the learning and

games you are offering.**



Why not click on your phase and have a go at this game?




Happy learning everyone!

Remember to keep your exercises and reading going.

Revisit the page on Wednesday for your next set of challenges.


Mrs Kitchen



Just a quick message from me!

Still image for this video



Hello Class 3!


Welcome back to Wednesday's learning challenge.

Today it is...

Today we are going to be writing a set of instructions.

Can you make a sandwich and then write a set of instructions to go with it?




**Don't forget to ask your grown up to help you make a sandwich.**


After you have made it, think back to all the steps you took and take time to say the instructions out loud.


If you have some scrap pieces of paper you could write down key words for each step.


Then put the pieces of paper / instructions in order to check you have them all and that they are in the right order.


Then it is time to write them down.



Can you remember the two things that you need to include when writing instructions?


Time connectives and imperative verbs.



Time connectives go at the start of the sentence and tell us in what order to do things.


Remember time connectives are needed to start each instruction. 

(First, Then, Next, After that, Finally)


For example: First get two slices of bread.



Imperative verbs are the bossy words that tell us what to do.


Remember imperative verbs usually come after the time connectives.

(get, put, spread, cut, add)



For example: First get two slices of bread.



***Don't forget to be really clear in your writing, as if you are talking to an alien who doesn't know how to make a sandwich.***



Finally, don't forget to use your non-negotiables.


Capital letter for the start of a sentence or a proper noun.

Clear spaces between words

Punctuation at the end of a sentence (. ? !)

Neat handwriting


Let's revisit the website of the week...



Why not have a go at making these finger bird puppets?


Click on the link below to take you straight to the page.


This is the last set of learning challenges for this week as it is VE day on Friday.





Happy learning everyone.

I will be back again on Monday with your next set of challenges.

Have a lovely and safe weekend.


Mrs Kitchen



Welcome back Class 3!

Hope that you have all had a lovely weekend!


Let’s get back to some learning.


Your first challenge is…



Number bonds are a pair of numbers that add up to make another specific number.

They are sometimes called number pairs

They can show you how numbers join together and how they break down into different parts.


It is important that we keep revisiting this learning as the children need to be secure and confident to recall the different number bonds to 10.

The more this is practised the more embedded the facts become!


In today's Bitesize lesson, you will learn about number bonds.

This lesson includes two videos and three activities:



Click on the link below to start the lesson:


Your next challenge is to check out the webiste of the week which is…


This website has lots of creative ideas. What about making a recycled sock puppet?

Take a look for more information!



Are you ready for your final challenge?



As we have been in our homes for a long time, we are obviously desperately missing our family and friends. Over the next couple of days I want you to write a letter to someone that is special to you e.g. grandparents, a friend etc.

Ask them how they are doing and tell them about what you have been getting up to at home.

You might even want to tell them how much you are missing them.

Don’t forget to start your letter with the greeting:



If it is possible; why not post your letter as a nice surprise?


Happy learning everyone.

Missing you all lots!

Remember to check our class page on Wednesday for our next set of challenges

 for this week.


Mrs Kitchen



Hello again everyone!

Final challenge of the week...



Throughout the  week you have been given the challenge to read as many different books as you can.

Your final challenge is to choose the book that was your favourite and write a book review about it.


Click on this link for a book review template.


If you would like to download the template and print it to write on you can.

Please don't feel that you need to print anything though.

  You could always just ask your child the questions and get them to respond verbally.



Happy learning everyone!

Remember to check our page on Monday for your next set of challenges.

Wishing you all a lovely and safe weekend.


Mrs Kitchen



Hello again everyone!


How is the reading challenge going?



Can you try and do some reading every day?

 Remember this can include your adult sharing a book with you too!

Remember to keep visiting the Oxford Owl website to access a range of reading books.


Click on the link below:


This next challenge is about developing your creative thinking and your literacy skills.


We are going to use this picture to generate creative ideas for our writing.



Today I would like you to think about planning your own story.

I have added a picture of the story plan that we always use in class when planning a story.


Can you explain to your grown up how it works?


You do not need to print the plan off or write anything down, but it might just help to

 organise your thoughts.


Once you have got your ideas, you need to practise performing your story out loud.


 Can you tell your story over and over again until you have remembered it?

Once you know it, ask a grown up if they will watch your story performance.



(Pretend you are on the stage)



Once you are confident with your story, you are then ready to write it down!


Remember to think about your non-negotiables for writing:

Capital letter for the start of a sentence or a proper noun.

Clear spaces between words

Punctuation at the end of a sentence (. ? !)

Neat handwriting


You will also need to think about time connectives when writing your sentences.

Here are a few examples…



 A moment later…

All of a sudden…


Later that day…


It takes a long time to prepare and write a story.

You might want to plan and perform the story on one day and then save writing the story for the day after. It’s up to you!


Happy learning everyone.

I can’t wait to read your stories!

Remember to check our class page on Friday for our last set of challenges

 for this week.


Mrs Kitchen




Welcome back Class 3!

Hope you have all enjoyed the weekend.


Last week I introduced you to some learning challenges from BBC Bitesize.

Today's numeracy challenge is all about representing two digit numbers to 50 and

understanding the value of numbers.



Follow the link to start your challenge.


There are 2 video clips to watch to help you understand your learning.

Once you have watched those, have a try at activity 1 and 2 on the website page.




Throughout this week spend a little bit of time each day forming numbers and representing

numbers to 50 using your knowledge of jottings.




Let's move onto your next challenge.

This week I want you to....


Reading is so important. I want you to try and read as much as you can whilst at home.

This could be you reading a book to your adult, or your adult reading a book to you!


I know it is tricky with not being able to share your guided reading books but this website has a wide range of e-books to keep your reading going!





Click on the link below:



To find an appropriate level of book for your child; click on the icon that says level:

You will then see a drop down box with a choice of phases 1-5 as shown below.






The phase of book your child needs is linked to the phonics group they are in.

Please get your child to say which teacher they have for phonics.


The grid below will help you find an appropriate text level for your child.







This new resource is available from Monday 27th April.

Please click on the link below to access the sessions on YouTube. You will need to subscribe to the page. This will only take a few moments and it is free.



Happy learning everyone!

Hello again everyone!

Here are your last set of challenges for this week.


For today's learning we are going to be looking at...


We are going to be focusing on the United Kingdom.




There are lots of helpful resources on BBC Bitesize to help you.

Ask an adult to help you follow this link below.


Watch the 'Welcome to the UK' video and have a go at Activity 1 first.



Want to take your learning further?

Have a look at the video clips about Tower Bridge and Caernarfon Castle.



Can you research and find out what the flag for the UK looks like?

What about the flag for  England?

Can you draw them?



Now you have learnt all about the UK and its countries, have a go at using some of the information you have learnt to design a travel guide for someone who might want to visit the UK or any of its countries.

Fold an A4 piece of paper in half to make a booklet for your travel guide.




Let’s revisit the website of the week…



I have found some more exciting and practical activities on this website.

Follow this link for some ideas to keep yourself busy over the weekend!



This weekend I am going to make a mud kitchen with my boys in the garden!

Which activity will you pick?


Happy learning everyone.


Hope you all have a lovely and safe weekend.

Visit our class page again on Monday for some new challenges.


Mrs Kitchen



Hello Class 3!

BBC Bitesize are now producing daily learning

sessions which look great!


There are film clips to support the children to achieve their learning and it is explained really clearly.


I have picked a numeracy lesson for you to complete.

Today’s challenge is all about counting on and back in 2s.

There are 2 parts to the challenge.

Can you complete both parts?



Click on the link below to get started!


There are 2 activity challenges for you to complete after you have watched both video clips.

Scroll down the BBC Bitesize page and you will see these picture:




Click on the pictures and the question sheets will appear.

How many questions can you answer?



Now for your next challenge...



Write a description of your garden or a room in your house.



What can you hear?

What can you see?

What can you smell?


Here are some examples of sentences.

How many descriptive sentences can you write?


The tree is gently blowing in the wind.

 The smell of the plants remind me of perfume.

If you look closely you can see a tiny ladybird crawling up the stem of a flower.

The flowers are all different colours like a rainbow.


Let’s revisit the website of the week…



Here are a few activities that could be completed in your garden or using nature outdoors as inspiration.

Please take note of government guidance if you are using the outdoors beyond your garden, as we want to make sure that you all remain safe!



Click on the link below for some ideas.


I like the idea of going on a texture hunt around the garden.

I think I am going to do this with my boys this week!


Happy learning everyone.

I'm so excited to hear about what different textures you have found.

Visit our class page again on Friday for some new challenges.


Mrs Kitchen



Hello again everyone!



Hope that you have had a lovely Easter break and that you are ready for your next set of learning challenges!


Let’s get started!




Get some raisins, grapes, cereal pieces etc. Place some on a plate. If the grown up with you says ‘one more’, add one more and say what number you have now. If they say ‘one less’, eat one and count how many you have left.

Ask a grown up to give you some toys. Count how many you have. Can you put out another group of toys so you have one more and then one less?

Build a tower with bricks. Can you build another tower with one more brick? Can you build another with one less brick? Once you are confident practically then move onto working with numerals.

Try picking any number up to 50.

See if you can work out what 1 more or 1 less than that number is.



If you have achieved this then try working out 10 more and 10 less than a given number. Remember try some examples with practical equipment first.


Use the 100 square to help you if you get stuck!


To take your learning further you could record your findings as number sentences:

31 + 10 = 41

49 - 10 = 39

44 + 1 = 45

28 - 1 = 27


The website recommended for this week is…



Take a look on this website as there are some fantastic learning opportunities.


In the Autumn term we completed a tree study at school and made a diary of the changes

we observed each week.

I wonder how the tree might have changed now?

Click on the link below to investigate how trees change throughout a year.


What did you find out?

If you have plants or trees in your garden or you can see them on your street,

take time to keep observing them to see if they begin to change.

Maybe keep a diary by drawing a picture and writing a sentence to describe

what you can see.


Happy learning everyone.

Remember to keep your daily exercise going and keep safe.

Missing you all!

Mrs Kitchen




Hello Class 3!

Today is our last day of learning challenges before the Easter Break!


I hope you are all continuing with some daily exercise.

 Have you checked out Zumba Kids?




Follow this link for a fun workout. I really enjoyed doing this!


Over the Easter Holidays your challenge is to pick one way to exercise each day. This can be Joe Wicks, Yoga, Zumba or perhaps you can create your own ideas for keeping fit and healthy.


Here are today's challenges...


Today we are going to be learning about internet safety.



Lots of us are using the internet to communicate with each other and for our home learning. Using the internet can be fun but it is also really important to be safe.



Have a look at this website below. Click on the age 4-7 and have a talk with an adult about online safety. Adults please take note of the parent/carer section which is really useful and informative.



Please find the link below: 


Now make a safety poster to share your safety knowledge with other people.




Who can remember the game of naughty numbers for place value that we played in school?

Can you teach your grown up how to play?


Here are the instructions just in case you have forgotten...



Play this game with a partner.

Each draw yourself a tens and ones grid.

Take it in turns to roll your dice.



The aim of the game is to create the 2 digit number with the highest value.


Each time you roll, think about where you could put that number? In the tens or the ones?

Now let your partner have a go. Keep playing until you have your two digit number.

Who has the highest value number? Can you prove it by drawing the dienes?


"I have the number with the highest value because I have 5 tens and you only have 3."


Let’s revisit the website of the week…



Can you remember our learning about animals in science?

What are the different types of animals?


Have a look at some of the animal facts with a grown up.

I recommend this page to start with.


Investigate the website and see what other interesting animal facts you can find.

Perhaps you could make an information book about animals.


Happy learning everyone.

Have a lovely Easter break and I will be back with some more

learning challenges for you on the 20th of April.


Mrs Kitchen


Hello Class 3!

How are you getting on with your learning challenges?

I am really looking forward to seeing all the learning that you have done so far.


Here is your next learning challenge…



Choose one person from your family.

 Write a description of what they look like.


Remember to punctuate your sentences carefully and choose some interesting describing words to explain what the person in your family looks like.

Try to make sure that you start each sentence in a different way.


My sister has got sparkly eyes like jewels.

She has got shiny hair that is soft to touch.


Let’s revisit the website of the week…



Use the link below to find out about an astronaut called Peggy Whitson.


What interesting facts can you find out about Peggy Whitson?

Can you research information about any other female astronauts?


Happy learning everyone.

I'm so excited to hear all the interesting facts that you have collected.

Visit our class page again on Friday for new challenges.


Mrs Kitchen



Welcome back Class 3!

Hope that you have had a lovely weekend and that you are ready for

some new learning challenges!

Does your body ache after all the exercise from Joe Wicks last week? Mine does!

Remember to keep up your daily exercise activity as we go through the new week.



You might want to check out Cosmic Kids Yoga too!



The website recommended for this week is….



Take a look on this website as there are some fantastic learning opportunities.


Take time to look at these 2 links which will help you with your learning on Space:


What facts did you learn? Write your facts down as sentences.

Remember to punctuate your sentences carefully.



This week’s numeracy learning is about using numeracy games to

apply the skills we have learnt.


Choose a different numeracy game to play each day.



Use this link for possible maths games that you might try:


Have a go at inventing your own numeracy game.


Happy learning everyone.

I can't wait for you to share some of the games that you have designed.

Visit our class page again on Wednesday for new challenges.


Mrs Kitchen


Hello everyone!

I hope you are all still smiling and managing to enjoy the nice weather.



Today’s challenge is all about getting creative!

Use your art and creative skills to make a self-portrait.



Think about how you will create your picture.

You might want to use paint, pencil crayon, collage etc.


Ask a grown up if they have got a mirror that you could use to look at your reflection. Remember to ask for permission and make sure that you use it safely.



In our learning we have been looking at measuring. We have focused on the mathematical language needed when describing and comparing length and height.


Length – long, longer, longest, short, shorter, shortest and equal to



Height - tall, taller, tallest, short, shorter, shortest and equal to


Take a look at this link on espresso to compare and order lengths and heights:


Take your learning further by picking an object around your home. Can you find things that are shorter/longer or taller/shorter than it?

Record down what you have found.



Happy learning everyone.

I hope that you all have a lovely and safe weekend.

I will speak to you again on Monday.


Mrs Kitchen



Hoping that you are all still happy and active!


Are you still keeping up with Joe Wicks' Live PE sessions at 9am?

I am!



If you haven't checked it out yet please do so as keeping active is not only good for fitness but it is also good for positive well being.


Keep the number challenges from Monday going because the more

we revisit our number bonds the quicker we will be.





How many numbers bonds to 10 or to 20 can you write down in 1 minute?


Record them as number sentences.


0 + 10 = 109 + 1 = 10, 8 + 2 = 10 etc..




Are you ready for your next learning challenge!

Think about who is in your family.


Can you draw a picture to show who is in your family?

Take your time and add detail to your art work.


Remember to label each person in the family to show who they are.


You might want to record it as a family tree or you might want to think of your own way to represent the people who are in your family.


Finally remember...


Don't forget about espresso! 



 We have been doing lots of learning about developing fluency and expression

in our reading so it would be helpful to check out this link to listen to famous authors reading their own books!



Happy learning everyone.

I can't wait to see what you have created and how you have represented your learning!

I will speak to you again on Friday.


Mrs Kitchen




Hello Class 3!

Are you ready for some learning challenges?


I will be uploading lots of learning challenges for you to do so keep checking our class page every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to find out what your next challenge will be.


Each week I will post a website of the week for you to trial. 

The website for this week is espresso.



There are some fantastic videos and learning opportunities available to share! Maybe take a look at this link on seasons and seasonal changes!





Why not start your Monday with a workout with Joe Wicks?

He is launching live PE lessons for children on Monday - Friday at 9am on his YouTube page.

I am definitely  going to be giving it a try so come and join in the fun!


Monday's Challenge is Numeracy!


Challenge 1


Choose 5 addition facts to learn from the grid.

Try and recall these facts each day so that you begin to know them

without working them out.



Start by learning the green and blue facts first.

Welcome to Class 3 - Mrs Kitchen


We have settled in really well as the new Class 3 and have produced some fantastic learning. Take a look around our classroom. The displays show our learning from our transition weeks. We are proud of our achievements.

Autumn Term 2019 - The Enchanted Woodland







In our literacy we have been using our creative skills and imagination to design and write descriptions for our own magical fairies and pixies.



We have been learning facts about woodland animals and have made non-fiction books to share our knowledge.



After that we have read lots of stories that take place in a woodland setting including the story Ouch by Ragnhild Scamell. We have used the structure of this story to create our own versions. We are very proud of our learning.





Take a look at some of our own stories. Read what

happens next to the little hedgehog!

Spring Term 2019


Julia Donaldson

This term we have been learning all about Julia Donaldson. We have enjoyed getting to know all of her stories and wonderful characters. As Enterprise learners we have been involved in an exciting on-going challenge to design and create a new shirt for George the Smartest Giant in Town. Take a look at our teamwork and design skills so far. 


As scientists we have been learning all about the human  body. Class 3 were set a challenge to  creatively make a human body out of workshop materials and label as many parts as they could. Take a look at our work.

We have also carried out a tree study. This involved learning about the many different types of tree and how a tree changes throughout the year and seasons. We have used our observational skills to record our findings.


In Numeracy we have been working on doubling and halving, number bonds and telling the time to o'clock and half past. Don't forget to keep practising these skills at home. We have also developed our skills further in addition and subtraction and began to use our knowledge of counting in 2's, 5's and 10's to solve multiplication problems. We have also developed strategies for finding half and a quarter of objects and amounts. Take a look !



As part of our literacy we have become very familiar with the stories Super Worm and Room on the Broom and used Julia Donaldson's style of writing to create and write our own stories. In Super Worm we changed the original story and developed our own plan to rescue Super Worm from the evil Wizard Lizard. In Room on the Broom we thought about further problems and solutions for the witch. We have also been developing our descriptive language skills to write about some more of our favourite characters including The Gruffalo, Zog and The Highway Rat.  

Autumn Term 2018


Land Ahoy

This term we have been learning all about our new topic Land Ahoy. We have enjoyed an exciting first day dressing up as pirates and completing a number of pirate challenges arghhhhhh. We were very lucky to be able to have a visit to The Deep where we were able to learn about different animals that live under the sea and their habitats. We have also developed our literacy skills by writing non fiction fact books about sea animals including eels, sea turtles and sharks. Our writing has also included seaside poems and a non fiction piece about Grace Darling.

Enterprise, Science and design Technology

As part of our science and design technology, we were faced with a challenge to design a boat. We had to think carefully about what materials we would use and why. To help us decide we tested and learned about a number of different materials and their properties by seeing which materials were able to float and sink in our science investigation area. We then used this to inform our ideas when designing the boat.

In Numeracy our learning has included using our knowledge of place value counting forwards and backwards and representing numbers to 20. We have been practising to add and subtract a single digit from a teen number. We have also explored finding 1 more and 1 less. Don't forget to keep practising!

Integrated and Enhanced learning

Throughout the different areas this term, we have been exploring a number of Land Ahoy themed areas including a phonics pirate challenge, a RNIL number rescue challenge and an under the sea descriptive writing challenge. Our tasks have included learning to write descriptive sentences and making sure we remember all the non-negotiables (finger spaces, capital letters and full stops). In the numeracy area we have been ordering numbers and practising counting forwards and backwards from any given number. In the art area we have painted some fabulous seaside scenes in the style of the famous artist Trudy Kepke. Thinking about how we use colour, pattern and shape. 

Take a look at our learning so far.

In addition to all this wonderful learning we have also had a special visitor to teach us all about healthy eating. We were set challenges to learn all about the different food groups. This has helped us to understand what a healthy balanced diet looks like and to know about good foods we need to eat and other foods we may need to eat less often.
