Welcome back after the Christmas break
This term, we will be exploring Celtic Britain in history, this follows on from children’s learning of Stone Age Britain.
In Geography, the children will be learning about countries in Europe, and they will have the opportunity to construct the Alps as part of their Art studies. Children will be expected to complete one project this term as part of their Geography and Art.
In Design and Technology, children will learn about pneumatic systems and how to make objects move. They will also have the opportunity to design and create a moving monster using this technique.
For more details about our learning this term, please click on the Spring Term Curriculum Overview.
After hearing your child read, sign their record booklet. This is an important document which shows your child’s reading habits. Reading books should go home at the end of each day and returned to school each morning. We would like you to encourage your children to keep using Reading Eggs, RMEasiMaths and TT Rockstar Maths. This is greatly beneficial to their reading, writing and maths work. Regular checks will be made to monitor children’s usage and progress.
Thank you for all the lovely homework that you have been working on, we hope this continues in this term too. We would appreciate children completing their homework on time.
We hope that your children have been reading during their holidays and have completed their reading journal tasks. Please continue to support your children in doing this with future reading books. .
We very much appreciate your continued support.
Miss Grewal (3G) and Mrs Rainey (3R)

Today, we learnt fow to make felt from wool, looked at fascinating artefacts from both the Stone Age and Iron Age period, and wove wool to make bracelets.
