Welcome to 3NW
Our teacher is Miss Wood and our teaching assistant is Mrs Conway. We hope you enjoy looking at our class page. We will update it regularly with pictures of the activities we have been doing in class.
Here is some information about being in 3NW:
Home readers need to be in school by Friday each week with at least two signatures.
Spellings are sent home on a Friday to be learnt for a test the following Thursday.
PE is on Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure PE kits are in school on those days and that earrings are taken out at home.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come in after school to talk to us.
Thank you, Miss Wood and Mrs Conway.
We made our own Powerpoint presentations and presented them to the class:
2SR had a fantastic time as we became Londoners for our Great Fire of London day. We met Samuel Pepys and Jane his maid and watched them acting out scenes from before the fire. We were able to ask and answer lots of questions and our visitors were so impressed with how much the children knew!
The children loved taking part in London life as they became butchers, bakers, cobblers, doctors and priests on Pudding Lane. Sadly , once the fire began, they had to leave their businesses and escape to safety across the Thames.
We met King Charles 2, the Queen and Sir Christopher Wren and we told them our ideas for rebuilding London.
In the afternoon we cracked code likes the one Samuel Pepys used and we even wrote our own.
We followed instructions from Master Baker Paul Hollywood himself to make perfect bread. We hope you enjoyed tasting it at our Harvest Liturgy.
2SR were very excited to have a surprise visit from Mrs Wilson and baby Grace! We asked her lots of questions about looking after a baby and Mrs Ruffle even had a little cuddle.
Our Year 5 prayer buddies came to share their stories with us. They have been looking at Rudyard Kipling and his animal based stories and have written their own stories in this style. These included: How the peacock got his feathers, How the scorpion got his sting and How the tortoise got his shell. We really enjoyed listening to them!
Corfe Castle Trip
We had the most fantastic day at Corfe Castle.... And the sun shone all day (phew!!) The National Trust employee commented that 1PW were the most excited and enthusiastic class group she had ever seen! The children started by looking around the castle and identifying the features we have been learning about this term. The children were able to demonstrate how much they had learnt and were amazed to see it all 'in real life!'
The children behaved beautifully and we are very proud of them. Thank you so much to the parent helpers who came.... We wouldn't be able to go on trips without you!
This term started with an exciting visit from Sir Richard, a lost and confused knight who needed the children's help to work out who he was and where he was from! The children shared their knowledge of knights, castles, kings, queens, princes and princesses and helped the knight with his memory (it was a nasty bump on the head during battle apparently!)
For book fortnight we have decided to base our learning on 'The Worst Princess' by Anna Kemp and Sara Ogilvie. The children have loved the story and are starting to look closely at the characters and stereotypes of what a princess should be like!
The children are also enjoying lots of small world and role play in the classroom... We have a room full of knights and princesses!
