Congratulations to our year 3/4 dodgeball team! They competed against 12 other schools on Monday (5th February) and did not lose a match! This meant they were the winners. A teacher came to us and said that the team were not only talented but honest too. What a lovely thing to hear! WELL DONE!

We are now well into our new topic of 'Burps, Bottoms and Bile', where we are learning about teeth and the digestive system. We began by learning about cleaning our teeth. It was fun to use disclosing tablets to see which parts we had missed! See our photos below.

We have had lots of fabulous homework from our Playlist topic brought into school. Here is a photo of Layla with the wonderful musical instrument she made (with a little help from her Dad). We also read our stories to year 1 pupils. Here is Sebastian sharing his work.
We recently challenged Mrs. North's class to a Battle of the Bands on ttrockstar. We are delighted to announce that we won! Well done to all the children who worked hard to get this result. A special mention should go to Daisy and Enzo for their fabulous effort!
During our first half term of the year, we worked on our topic, 'Traders and Raiders', where we studied the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. At the end of the topic, we invited you to come into school to see our Anglo-Saxon buildings and have the opportunity to buy a few small items that we had made. Thank you for supporting us in this way.
Look below to see photos of some of this topic's activities.
We recently enjoyed the Halloween disco. Look below for some scary photos!
The start of our 'Traders and Raiders' topic was designing, making and testing our own boats.

In English, we learnt the legend of King Arthur and the sword in the stone. Through it we worked on improving our writing using conjunctions, and writing in the past tense. Currently, our work is based on 'How to be a Viking' by Cressida Cowell. We are innovating the story to 'make it our own', using effective description.
In Maths, we have worked on Place Value (of 3 digit numbers) for several weeks. Now we are working on addition and subtraction, and we will move on to the 'formal' methods using columns after the half term break.
As parental request, homework is set fortnightly (set and explained on a Friday and then handed in on the Wednesday almost two weeks later). Ongoing homework is frequent reading to an adult at home, plus practising number bonds/times tables and weekly set spellings.
