One of our pupils was so inspired by our geography topic that he persuaded his family to go on a sightseeing trip over the weekend! He took them to many of the landmarks we've located and studied - we hope he was an excellent tour guide!

We love seeing learning going on at home, getting the whole family involved. Remember to share all the wonderful activities you're doing at home.

We love every Flexi-Friday but this one felt a little more "historic" as we spent the day learning about King Charles III. Many of the children were surprised to learn that he was the first heir to attend an actual school rather than being taught at home. They were impressed by his commitment to charities and the environment too. Classes were able to spend the end of the day preparing decorations for the classroom which we look forward to using next week.

In maths, we've continued learning all things FRACTIONS. This can be quite a confusing topic but the children have shown their resilience and determination as always. 

Questions to ask this weekend:

*How do you know 1/2 and 3/6 are equivalent?

*What is 1/3 of 12? Can you draw a bar model to prove it?

*Which conjunctions and adjectives are most useful when trying to persuade someone to come to Birmingham?

*After reading "The Wild", was it right that the little girl returned to the forest? What happened in the text to support your decision?

*Is Little Red Riding Hood's hood roja or rosa?

*Did her abuela live in a casa or a bosque?

  • Reception - Supertato

    In our Talk Through Stories sessions this week, Reception have been learning the story 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. In the story, the Evil Pea has escaped from the freezer and is causing chaos and terrorising the other vegetables in the supermarket. We decided to think about ways that we could catch the Evil Pea and restore peace to the supermarket. We had lots of ideas such as creating cages to lock the Evil Pea in and using a net to trap him and then returning him to the freezer.

  • Year 3 Round Up Spring 2 Week 6

    The children have come back into school raring to go and smash the challenges set. They've begun their latest novel study, a fantastic book written by Steven Butler and illustrated by Steven Lenton. The first in a hilarious series, "The Nothing To See Here Hotel" introduces us to the weird and wonderful world of Frankie and his family of trolls. This week, the children made predictions about the plot, solely from the front cover and blurb.

  • Reception - Numberblocks Day

    Reception have had a brilliant day today as our classroom was transformed into Numberland, the home of the Numberblocks. We took part in lots of different Numberblocks themed activities such as making 'Stampoline' patterns and using our knowledge of number to draw accurate pictures of our favourite Numberblocks and sharing what we know about each of them. We even helped our teachers to stand in the right order using the 'diddly diddly do' rhyme that we learnt from the Numberblocks. Take a look at some of our amazing maths learning.

  • Reception - Pancake Day

    Reception have been very busy learning how to make pancakes in preparation for Pancake Day! We carefully followed the instructions to make some pancakes together and then practised flipping them. We then got to taste the pancakes with different toppings and used our photo cubes to vote for our favourite topping. As you can see, chocolate spread was a very popular choice!

  • Reception - Kandinsky Art

    This week, we have been learning about the artist Wassily Kandinsky. We compared his work to the work of Andy Goldsworthy and Jackson Pollock, who we have previously learnt about at school. We noticed that the colours that Kandinsky used in his paintings were much brighter than those used by Jackson Pollock. Inspired by his work, we decided to make our own pictures, using hearts for Valentine's Day.

  • Year 3 Round Up Spring 2 Week 6

    All the children's hard work on their number fluency is paying off...now that we are moving on to the topic of money. Mrs Evans always says that her favourite maths learning is around time, fractions and money as she can really "see the point of it!". Different children have had the chance to shine already as their understanding of money feels relevant to their daily lives. Children investigated different ways to make totals using a limited number of coins.

  • Tour Guide

    We love seeing the learning that takes place once children have left the classrooms. Jonah persuaded his family to take a trip into the city centre, to see some of the landmarks for himself. We hope he made an excellent tour guide! Remember to send in any of the activities you complete at home - they will be added to a display where children can see and celebrate their success.

  • Year 3 - SUCCESS

    Our school focus recently has been SUCCESS and the feelings it brings with it. For our pupils in Year 3 we've had an abundance of successes: :) My spelling score went up with week ( huge smile) :) I shared my story with teacher in different year groups and got a round of applause (blushing but grinning) :) My Birmingham cityscape looks really cool, look at how I made that curved shape ( waving hands) :) I played a weird game like football but not football. It was so much fun! (bouncing) Success can look different for everyone but, in the words of Heather Small (M-People) it makes us feeeeeeeel prooouuud!
