The children in 3E have been enriching their learning by completing their exciting homework projects based on our Tomb Raiders topic.
The classroom is starting to resemble a museum with all the fabulous "mummies" and pyramids on show!!
Well done to everyone who has managed to complete some of the star challenges and have brought their creations into school.
Remember you need to achieve 10 stars in total by the October deadline.
What an amazing week it's been in 3E this week!
On Wednesday we took part in lots of exciting activities as part of our "Wow Day" to introduce our topic. We investigated an "excavation site" to look for hidden artifacts left by Dr Rison from the National History museum. There were lots of exciting things to be discovered including a mummy, skeleton, statues and jewellery! We then wrote up reports about our findings and created sketch maps of the are ready to be sent to Dr Rison.
In addition to the excitement on Wednesday day we have been recapping on nouns and verbs in English and used a thesaurus to improve our vocabulary choices. We have also been continuing reading extracts from "The time travelling cat" ready for lots of writing next week.
In our Maths lesson been continuing with our place value work and problem solving and reasoning skills.
Our first week
It's been a fun but busy first week in 3E and as well as getting to know the school routines and each other better, we have also managed to fit in a huge amount of learning in too!
We have focused on grammar and punctuation in English and place value and number in Maths. We have also started our new topic "Tomb Raiders" and have looked at maps to locate Egypt and learned about the equator and how it impacts the climates of the countries close to it.
Just a few reminders:
Our PE lessons are on Friday so please ensure you have your kit with you.
Reading books need to be brought into school every day along with your reading records. Mrs Elsmore will be giving out house points and stickers to the children that read every day and have their record signed by an adult at home!
Also, homework grids were sent home today, if you need a new copy, Mrs Elsmore has spares or it can be accessed online.
Enjoy the weekend!
