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

    We love a Flexi Friday! Today we began by publishing our amazing mummification instructions then we had our second Let's Think English lesson. We really enjoy these as we get to read and watch different stories, following up with great conversations about what we've seen. Each week, we make choices and form opinions, and we get to share these with our friends.

  • Reception Classes - Marvelous Maths

    ​This week we have been learning about the composition of numbers 1,2 and 3. The children have been on a hunt around our classroom to see if they could find 2 items. We have been using our stem sentences to help us remember how numbers are composed. E.g 1 and another 1 makes 2. This is really helping to embed the number bonds for these numbers.

  • Dough Disco

    This week at school the children have really enjoyed doing 'Dough Disco'. Dough disco involves moulding play dough in time to music and performing different actions such as rolling it into a ball, flattening it, putting each individual finger into the dough, rolling it into a sausage and squeezing it. It helps to strengthen the muscles in our fingers and hands in preparation for writing. We have added some pictures of the moves that we have been learning at school so that you can practise at home too.
