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?

  • Year 3 Round Up Spring Week 2

    Year 3 have been busy little bees this week. We've begun writing a new version of Anthony Browne's "The Tunnel", in which the siblings will go on an adventure in a haunted house. In reading and writing lessons, we've been focusing (ooh! One of our spellings from this week!) on building the tension and drama for the reader.

  • Year 3 Round Up Spring Week 1

    It has been wonderful to see all the pupils back in school and ready to go. They've settled straight back in to routines and their best learning behaviours. We started our latest geography topic by exploring Google Earth on the iPads. Children were able to locate the UK by searching for Europe (it was great to see them building on their Y2 knowledge!); they then found the capital cities: Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.

  • Reception - The Gingerbread Man

    Over the past few weeks, Reception have been learning the story 'The Gingerbread Man'. We created our own story maps and used these to help us to retell the story. We then emersed ourselves in the story using 'Now Press Play' and took on the role of different characters from the story. We decided to decorate our own gingerbread men using a variety of tasty treats.

  • Year 3 Round Up

    We've reached a really dramatic point of our Novel - "The Time Travelling Cat" and we can't wait to find out if Topher escapes and manages to rescue his cat Ka! If your child comes home and asks to have a dig around in the back garden soil, please don't worry! Today they learnt about silt, sandy and clay soil. Using some test results, they found out that clay soil holds on to far too much water (because the particles are closely pack together) which means many of the gardens around Longbridge aren't great for growing plants!

  • Reception - Jackson Pollock Artwork

    Reception have been exploring the art of famous artist Jackson Pollock. We looked at some of his most famous drip paintings and shared our opinions of them. We decided that Jackson Pollock's paintings look similar to fireworks and decided to make our own. We used a variety of techniques to create our drip paintings, including squirting bottles of paint, using spray bottles and flicking paint from brushes.
