Week 13 - Home learning

Summer 2 (Week 5)

 

Good Morning Year 3

 

I hope you are all well and that you have had a good week. It hasn't been the greatest of weeks with regards to the weather but I hope you've managed to get out and do some things. 

 

We are having a class google hangout this Tuesday at 10am. I am looking forward to seeing you all then. 

 

As ever, your new spellings are on Purple mash as well as daily reading and guided reading activities. I have also put your spellings on the documents page below for you to find and do every day. 

 

Maths can be found on the documents page below too. This week we are looking at mass and measuring capacity. 

 

Literacy

As the weeks have gone on each week I have had less work coming in from this website and noticed more and more coming in on Purple Mash. Therefore, I have found some home learning literacy booklets which are fantastic, so if you would like to work your way through this one, as well as the work on Purple Mash then please do. 

 

 

I hope you all have a fantastic week and I look forward to speaking to you all on Tuesday.

Week 12 - Home learning

Summer 2 (Week 4)

 

Good Morning Year 3

 

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. As ever, I have had some lovely work sent to me but most work has been on purple mash which has been of great quality. 

 

Remember, if you find something to hard to do on Purple Mash, something like a poster or designing or creating a picture, then you can always make it on a piece of paper and send me an email. 

 

Your new spellings are on Purple mash as well as daily reading and guided reading activities. Like last week, each morning it will automatically updated, so you will only see what you have for that one day now, instead of previously having the whole week laid out for you.

 

Maths will be using Whiterose still and you can find this weeks maths below. It is the last week of fractions, but now we are ordering as well as adding and subtracting fractions. If you are struggling, do not worry, it is something we will do again and again in school. I would rather you focus on timetables (and division) if you are wanting something extra to do.

Monday

Your task can be found in the document section below.

 

Tuesday

Click the link above to see today's lesson.

 

Wednesday

I would now like you to start drafting your letter. What do you need to start with? Use your lesson from Monday where you organised a letter, to see what you need to start with. Remember you are writing a letter to Mrs O-H so you can use her name and address (school address) in your letter. 

 

Think about the order you are going to write your letter. Do you want to start with the things you don't like or would you rather start with talking about things you do like or things you are good at. 

 

Remember, today is just a draft, to start getting ideas into full sentences. Do not worry too much about it being perfect. Just get all the things you would like to say onto paper.

Week 11 - Home learning

Summer 2 (Week 4)

Hello Year 3

 

I hope you have all had a good week. The weather hasn't been to good this week has it, but this coming week looks fantastic. With this in mind, I would like you do spend lots of time outside having fun.

 

I have put your normal things on purple mash as well as your whiterose maths activities, however I have also attached a variety of outdoor activities for you to do. This isn't something you need to do or need to send me pictures of, although I would love to see them, but just to give you some things to enjoy doing outside in the sunshine. 

 

https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/lists/fun-things-to-do-with-a-humble-stick

 

Your spellings for the week are attached below and you have been set a test on purple mash. Your daily reading and guided reading activities are also on purple mash.

 

Enjoy your week. I look forward to hearing from you,

 

Mr Pearmain

Week 10 - Home learning

Summer 2 (Week 3)

 

Good Morning Year 3

 

Thank you again for all your work. I am trying to get back to every email and piece of work I can, but we are very busy at school at the moment so it might take me some time. However, I am reading and looking at each and every piece, so please keep them coming in. 

 

Your new spellings are on Purple mash as well as daily reading and guided reading activities. Like last week, each morning it will automatically updated, so you will only see what you have for that one day now, instead of previously having the whole week laid out for you.

 

Maths will be using Whiterose still and you can find this weeks maths below. It is the last week of fractions, but now we are ordering as well as adding and subtracting fractions. If you are struggling, do not worry, it is something we will do again and again in school. I would rather you focus on timetables (and division) if you are wanting something extra to do. 

 

Literacy 

This week and next we will be looking at play writes and play scripts. Our focus this week will be on Shakespeare. 

 

Monday

Today, I would like you to do your own research on Shakespeare and then create a factfile on him. You will need to decide on what information you are going to put on your factfile, what they make look like and then your design. 

 

I have attached one below to show you what a good factfile looks like.

 

 

Tuesday and Wednesday

 

Today we start to look at the language of Shakespeare. I understand that most of the language used will be very strange to you but that doesn't mean we can't decode them, like we would any other strange words. Today I would like you to watch the two videos of 'All the worlds a stage' monologue. I would then like you to copy out the monologue into your own books and then highlight or underline any words you do not know. After which you can select between 8 - 12 words from your unknown words, to create a dictionary of words in your books. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61z2fPAOr8g

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXZhASNTKt4

 

During this time, I would also like you to learn as much as you can of that monologue, even if it is with prompts, and then get someone to record you doing it. I have also done my own version which I will post below

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtg2CqZ08Xo

 

I'm looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning hopefully for our class chat online.

 

Stay safe and don't forget to check back here and on PurpleMash for your activites.

Week 9 - Home learning

Summer 2 (Week 2)

 

 

Hi Year 3

 

I hope you are well and that you have enjoyed your weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed looking through your work this week, especially some of your art work. The creativity on show was fantastic.

 

As mentioned last week, we are moving a lot of our learning to PurpleMash now. Most of you have been on already and sending me your work through there, Ive been able to respond to your directly through PurpleMash too. 

 

Your new spellings are on Purple mash as well as daily reading and guided reading activities. Each morning it will automatically be updated, so you will only see what you have for the one day now, instead of previously having the whole week laid out for you. You do however have the whole week to complete each task, so if you miss anything, do not worry, you can catch up. 

 

Maths will be using Whiterose still and you can find this weeks maths below. Its continuing on with fractions. I feel that from the work I have seen, we are all making good progress in our Fractions. However, if you are struggling, do not worry, it is something we will do again and again in school. I would rather you focus on timetables ( and division) if you are wanting something extra to do. 

 

World Oceans Day

 

Monday 8th June, is world Oceans day. Each day i will be setting a small task to do, some tasks may take you a few days to complete but that is ok. 

 

The first task, today's task, is to create an acrostic poem about the world OCEAN. I have attached a link here to explain what an acrostic poem is. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z4mmn39/articles/ztdvw6f

 

If you could then create a border or nice drawing to accompany your poem that would be great. Something like this.

Tuesday 9th June

 

 

I would like you to pretend to be this diver. You are going to write a diary entry on what you discovered during a dive. 

 

How to write a diary entry..... https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn2djhv

This page is aimed at Year 7 diary entries but I feel that it gives you some good information on the video and webpage. 

 

Wednesday 10th June

 

I noticed yesterday that we were producing some fantastic written work but on many occasions we were not reading back our work. 

 

Today, I have attached a sheet below called PUNCTUATION AND GRAMMAR. I would like you to choose either LA (Mild) MA (Hot) HA (Spicy) and copy it into your books, but correcting all the punctuation and grammar mistakes. 

 

Have a wonderful day.

 

Thursday 11th June and Friday 12th June

 

So today and tomorrow's work will be linked together. I would like you to think about sustainability. Firstly, what does that word mean? 

 

I would like you to design a product or machine that would help tidy up litter/plastics from the sea. It has to be innovative and creative. It does not have to be realistic but simply let your imagination run wild. Could you use drones to help? Or a ship with a big litter picker on the back? Or even design something that swims in the sea and collects plastics through a big mouth like devise? 

 

Once designed I would like you to label the machine with what each part does and also label it with the materials used. 

 

Then tomorrow, or today if you would like too, I would like you to write a persuasive letter to try and encourage people to help you clean up the ocean and use your machine/product.

Mrs Oliver-Hawkins

Mrs Oliver-Hawkins has set another whole school STEM challenge on the clatford home learning page. Please keep them coming in, the cars looked so creating last week.

.

 

Keep checking Purple Mash and this website every morning to see what has been set for the day ahead. I look forward to hearing from you soon. 

Week 8 - Home learning

First week after May half term

 

 

Good Morning Year 3, 

 

I hope you have all had a wonderful half term. The weather has been lovely hasn't it. I have been in my pool a few times and also have been down to the river near Clatford. I was even fortunate enough to see some of you which was fantastic. 

 

Before I talk about activities for this week ahead, I wanted to just mention the week before half term and the work that you did. I think it was the most amount of work I received on a single week, most of which was pictures of your towers. I would like to say a massive well done to all of you. You all did fantastically well and used your creativity and imagination. I would also like to just mention a few people though in particular. Firstly, Matthew, your tower was not only one of the tallest, but you clearly thought about the materials you used so to try and keep it strong. Well done. A well done also to Molly who had to climb onto her roof to measure how tall her building was. Notable towers also go to Emma for her gardening themed tower. Will for using recycled materials and to Imogen, mainly for her reaction which was caught on camera, when it toppled over. 

 

This week I have set you a few tasks, however my Literacy wont load up for some reason, so I will have to do that on Monday morning when I am in school. I hope you enjoy this weeks learning and tasks. I think there is lots of fun and creative tasks this week, something I know you not only enjoy, but have shown you are really good at too. 

 

P4C and PHSE

During lock down it has been difficult to realise how special we are, how unique we are, how much of a superhero we are and to be able to see some of the highlights we have achieved that we may not have done if it wasn't for lock down I would like you to complete the positive power documents below. One for you and one about a friend. It should be full of colour, full of good handwriting, but most importantly filled with lots of lovely things. Also, I would like you to fill in the 'Something that makes me feel" document.

 

Obviously, If you do not have access to a printer then you could design your own versions of both of these documents. 

 

Maths

 

We are continuing on with our fractions focus for another few weeks, this week looking at fractions as decimals and how to recognise fractions on a number line. 

 

The documents for this week can be found below. 

 

Literacy

Over the course of the next few weeks we are going to be looking at reports, specifically newspaper reports. 

 

Before we start in class we would normally do a 'cold task' which means getting you to do something without knowing all the skills, then we would work on the skills. So today and tomorrow I would like you too write a report about something you did over the last few weeks or months. Then on Wednesday I will upload some skills I would like you to work on, things such as fronted adverbials and paragraphs. 

 

You have two days to get a report done.

 

I have also put your spellings up for the week. These can be found below.

 

Art

I would like to set you a fun challenge this week. Throughout history there has been some amazing works of art. Be it Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci or The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. This week I would like you to not only try to draw or paint your own version of a famous work of art, but also (and here is the fun bit) try to recreate a work of art. (The art work can be of your own choice).

 

Challenge your family to get involved, use props and objects. Be inventive!!!

I've attached a document below to give you some ideas or at least the level I am looking for.

 

Good luck, I can't wait to see these!!!

 

Mrs Oliver-Hawkins

Mrs Oliver-Hawkins has set a whole school STEM challenge on the clatford home learning page. The first one is a rubber band powered car challenge. She will be doing a different challenge each week. Why not try and give it a go. Think about your design too. Can you not only try and make it work, but also make it look good too.

.

 

Have a good week and I look forward to hearing from you all soon.

 

Week 7 Home Learning Pictures

Picture 1

Week 7 - Home learning

 

 

Ciao anno 3 (Hello Year 3)

 

I hope you enjoyed last weeks activities. As ever, I had some wonderful pictures sent to me but most of all, its lovely to simply hear from you or see you faces. So please keep those pictures and emails coming. 

 

The Roman work was a massive hit last week so I want to continue on with that. Something we would be looking at whilst studying the Romans is Italy and Rome itself. I am therefor setting you some tasks based around Italy and Rome. 

 

Design and Technology

One of the most iconic buildings in Italy is the leaning tower of Pisa, some of your parents or family might have even been there. I would like to do a competition.Can you build the tallest tower you can using whatever materials you would like. There are some rules though. 

 

Rule 1 - It must be free standing 

Rule 2 - It must be built to look like a building, not just 10 bricks stood on top of each other. 

Rule 3 - You must only do this is with a parents permission and in a safe environment. 

 

If you can, then send a picture of you either standing next to it, or the tower next to a measuring tape so I can see how tall it actually is.

 

Bonus points for creativity and using your imagination.

 

Literacy

I would like you to create a fact file about Rome. This could be done in a variety of ways, maybe a poster, maybe a booklet? I have set you a few tasks on PurpleMash, but these are simply guidelines and templates to give you ideas. You can create your own one and not do the purple mash ones, that is fine.

 

I want to know lots of interesting facts about Rome. What interesting things would make me want to go to Rome? Don't forget to include pictures (either found or drawn) and then label them. 

 

It might be worth researching the features of a fact file or informative texts.

 

Although this is only one task, it shouldn't take you just one lesson at home. One lesson should be about researching, one lesson designing, then one or two lessons doing the final thing, making sure your colouring and spelling are the best it could be. Making sure your sentences are correct, its punctuated correctly and then it makes sense. 

 

I have also attached a reading comprehension. They are all on the same subject, but just aimed at different levels. In class I would normally give you the Mild, Hot or Spicy, but maybe you could all try one and then if you find it too hard or easy, then move up or down to do another one. 

 

Maths

I would like you to continue with the whiterose maths work. However, whiterose have changed the way they allow access to the worksheets.  This week we return to fractions, which I know some of you struggle with. Hopefully these videos will help but if not, please email and I will try and help as best I can.

 

Lesson 1 - https://vimeo.com/418151464

Lesson 2 - https://vimeo.com/418151644

Lesson 3 - https://vimeo.com/418151919

Lesson 4 - https://vimeo.com/418153490

 

 

Other things

Obviously, where possible it would be great if you could carry on with your mathletics, spellings and reading. I hope you have a good week and I look forward to hearing from you all.

Week 6 Home Learning Pictures

Week 6 - Home learning

 

Hello Year 3,

 

Firstly, I can't believe we are entering our sixth week, of what would normally be school weeks, worth of lockdown. That means 6 whole weeks that you were meant to be at school and haven't been. I also can't believe that at the end of this week It will be ten weeks since I last saw you, as I was off before lockdown and you had the fantastic Mrs Tomlinson, who sends her love by the way.

 

I hope you enjoyed last weeks activities. I had lots of good pieces of work sent to me, although I only put four up this week. Check them out below. It was a lovely day to celebrate VE day and I hope you all managed to mark the celebration in one way or another. 

 

This week we are going to focus our attention back to the Romans. I have some literacy, history and Art tasks for you to do as well as your normal maths from whiterose, mathletics, spellings and purple mash tasks.

 

Art

As im sure you know, one of the most common things people remember about the Romans was their Mosaics. Mosaics are pictures made up from lots of different tiles and put together to make a picture or pattern. I have attached a document below talking you through how you could go about making a Roman Mosaic. I wonder how creative and imaginative you could be. TOP TIP - Take your time! If you finish you mosaic in 20 or 30 minutes, its likely you haven't taken enough time. You don't have to do it in one go, maybe do some one on day and come back to it the next day, a bit like a huge puzzle.

 

Literacy and History

One of the things we look at in our study of the Romans is Pompeii. Many of you may have heard of Pompeii, but for those who haven't maybe this could be your first question.

 

What and where is Pompeii?

 

Your main focus is based on this Youtube clip. Before you open the clip though, I would like you to open up the 'Pompeii worksheet' which can be found below and read the instructions carefully. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NclK3rL6jTg

 

I would suggest that you do the first activity on the first day and then the diary entry activities over the next few days. It would normally take us 2 or 3 days to complete this in class, so maybe you could aim for the same. 

 

Maths

I would like you to continue with the whiterose maths work. However, whiterose have changed the way they allow access to the worksheets. From today (Monday 11th may) you will still be able to access the video tutorials but won't be able to download the worksheets that go with them. We as a school, as a member, are able to access those sheets, so I have downloaded each daily sheet and attached it to the documents section below. 

 

Lesson 1 - https://vimeo.com/415086682

Lesson 2 - https://vimeo.com/415086842

Lesson 3 - https://vimeo.com/415087020

Lesson 4 - https://vimeo.com/415087218

 

Other things

Obviously, where possible it would be great if you could carry on with your maths, spellings and reading. I hope you have a good week and I look forward to hearing from you all.

Messages from other teachers

 

Mrs Freeman

Hi Children, I hope you are well and keeping up with school work but mainly enjoying time with your families. I've been doing lots of arts and crafts and LOTS of gardening. I miss you lots and can't wait to see you again soon.

 

Mrs F

Hi Everyone, I miss your faces and voices. Cant't wait to see you an hear about all of your home adventures. Hope you have been enjoying family time and have still been able to learn a few things.

 

Mrs Hodgkinson

Hi Year 3, I've been thinking of you all the time whilst I am staying at home with my girls. We are keeping busy with some school work, spending lots of time playing in the garden, making caked and crafting. I think of you all as I have been helping Amelia with her Year 3 work. She was trying grid method and I really enjoyed showing her Mr Pearmain's video. Have any of you managed to try some? I miss you all and can't wait to see you all again soon. xx

Week 5 - Home learning

 

Hello Year 3,

 

I hope you have had a good week. I've missed school a lot this week and missing seeing your faces. I've had some lovely work sent it to me and you will find pictures of some of this work below. It's so nice to see work sent in that I have set but also things that you have taken on yourself. In particular this week I love the baking that has been happening and the DT using things from your homes.

 

This week, I have set some work which you will find below in the documents section, however I wanted to bring your attention to something which I would love you to focus on. 

 

VE DAY

This Friday, is Victory in Europe Day 75 (VE Day). I would firstly suggest that you have a conversation with your parents, grandparents or great grandparents (if you can) about what VE day actually is. It is a really interesting day and is a big part in our history. I have attached a home learning booklet. It has something for you to do every day, resulting in your on VE celebrations on Friday. You will also find something on purplemash for you to do which looks at VE Day.

 

Other Activities

Like last week, I have also attached some spellings for this week and as always, I would like you to continue with reading. It doesn't matter what you are reading, simply just read. Adults please continue with using the prompt questions. 

 

As per previous weeks I would like to guide you towards the WHITEROSE MATHS website. This week I would like you to complete SUMMER TERM - Week 3 (w/c 4th May) This is a tricky one as it is all about Money, I would suggest you maybe set up a pretend shop at home, selling or buying objects. It could be that you might have some spare change around the house that your parents wouldn't mind letting you use.

 

I hope you all have a great week. I am at school this week and will be getting things ready or our return, whenever that may be. If you need me or want to contact me, please do. 

 

I love seeing your faces, I miss them lots, so keep sending in your happy, smiling faces and your fantastic work. 

 

Keep safe,

 

Mr Pearmain

Week 4 Home Learning Pictures

Week 4 - Home learning

 

Hi Year 3, 

 

I hope you had a great week. The weather has been great again, I've managed to get out into my garden a lot and go from some lovely walks around where I live.

 

For those of you who have been sending in some work to me, thank you. It's been a pleasure to look through your work and see how much effort has gone into it all. I have loved your troll work, which has clearly been a hit, but also love work that has been sent to me which you have been doing your own research on. Space seems to have been a popular theme this week. Below you will find a selection of some of the work sent to me.

 

This term we are due to be starting our Roman topic. Ive put together a literacy pack all about one aspect of the Romans, their beliefs.  This is a whole pack of work with lots of different tasks for you to complete throughout the week. This can be completed in your home learning books. I do not need to see the whole process, but if you would like to send me the final piece of work you do that would be great. Like last week, I have also attached some spellings for this week. 

 

As ever, I would like you to continue with reading. Adults please continue with using the prompt questions. 

 

Much like last week I would like to guide you towards the WHITEROSE MATHS website.

I would like you to complete SUMMER TERM - Week 2 (w/c 27th April) 

 

Lastly, there is a video on the home learning youtube page which is about Tree Mobiles.

 

As ever, I would like you to complete it to the best of your ability. But if you do not get it all done, do not put pressure on yourself.

 

I hope you all have a great week. I will be by my computer all week so if you have anything you would like to send then please email me through the home learning email. 

 

Keep safe, wash those hands, and keep helping mums and dads (they need looking after too sometimes)

Week 3 Home Learning Pictures

Week 3 - Home learning

 

Hi Year 3, 

 

I hope you had a wonderful Easter. I've heard from a few of you telling me about all the chocolate you had and things you have made at home over the last two weeks. 

 

So as you know we are in lockdown for the next three weeks as a minimum. During that times I will continue to set you some work to do. This isn't mandatory as your wellbeing is more important, but simply to keep you ticking over and keep boredom at bay, whilst hopefully learning some things along the way.

 

You will find a literacy document about Trolls. This is a whole pack of work with lots of different tasks for you to complete throughout the week. This can be completed in your home learning books. I do not need to see the whole process, but if you would like to send me the final piece of work you do that would be great. I have also attached some spellings for this week. You could learn these throughout the week and then get an adult to test you on Friday. 

 

As ever, I would like you to continue with reading. Adults I have attached a help sheet with lots of questions you could ask your children whilst reading with them. Reading isn't about ready lots and lots, but taking in, understanding, inferring, etc. 

 

As well as continuing on with your mathletics tasks, I have also hyperlinked you to WHITEROSE MATHS. I would like you to complete week 1 and 2 (NOT SUMMER WEEK 1) of the work which is all about fractions. We have done fractions before looking at the numerator and the denominator. There is a video on the page which will explain all that you need to do. 

 

As well as this, I have put a video on the home learning page about creating your own family tree. This will be a great thing for you to do as a family and a way to learn about your history and where you come from. 

 

As ever, I would like you to complete it to the best of your ability. But if you do not get it all done, do not put pressure on yourself, we will catch up on any gaps when we get back to school. 

 

I hope you all have a great week. I will be by my computer all week so if you have anything you would like to send then please email me through the home learning email. 

 

Keep safe and keep smiling. 

 

Mr Pearmain

Week 2 - Home learning

 

Hello everyone,

 

I hope you are well, I am missing you all very much and can't wait to hear from you. In the meantime, you will find some tasks below I would like you to complete over the next week. These shouldn't take you too long, but I would like then done to the best of your ability.

 

If you would like to say hello, then don't forget you can comment on the videos on the home learning youtube page or you can send me emails and pictures of what you are doing at home via the home learning email.

Week 1 - Home learning

 

The children will by now have come home with home learning booklets which have some activities and sheets in for them to have a go at. I have also put together a list of activities, websites and resources that may prove helpful, informative and fun for you and your child while they are learning from home.

 

  • Topmarks - A variety of online interactive games.
  • Times Tables - This website is the website we use at school to practise our times tables. You can select the times table you are learning, do both multiplication and division as well as selecting the time and amount of question you have. 
  • Mathletics -  Each child now how their own personal log in. I have set a number of tasks that should keep the children busy.
  • Purple mash - Each child also has their own log in for this. Again, I have selected some activities for your children that they should be able to do independently, they may need help with logging in.
  • Geography - This website is just a nice website for your children to explore with you. I wonder if you as adults can find out more interesting facts about places of the world.
  • Mental Health - Mental Health is an important thing for everyone to be aware of. These challenging times which we find ourselves in, may cause more mental health concerns, both for adults and children. Make sure you talk about them. This website is a nice website to have a read though and gives you activities for your child to do or to do as a family. If you need help with managing your children at home, please let me know. #ItsOkayToNotBeOkay

 

I will be posting information and tasks to this page so please keep checking back here regularly.

 

I hope you all stay healthy and happy. Remember that although some of us may be ill, isolated or feeling sad. We are still a big Clatford family! We'll all be back to school together before you know it!

 

Mr Pearmain

 

Welcome to Year 3!

 

Year 3 is an exciting year in school as the children leave behind Key Stage one and begin their journey through Key Stage Two with Mr Pearmain and Mrs Freeman. The children become increasingly independent and responsible this year and begin to take some ownership of their learning and their environment.

 

In literacy, we work to consolidate the progress that we have made in Year 2. We work hard to ensure that we have secured their phonological knowledge and move towards ensuring that we are applying it to our spelling. In numeracy, we look to extend our range of strategies to solve calculations using the four operations. We begin to learn and use our times tables more now, and develop these skills into our growing collection of key number facts.

 

We cover three main topics across the year. We firstly look at 'Stone Age to Iron Age', and what life was like during that time period. As part of the topic, we visit Butser Ancient Farm, during which we get the opportunity to explore both time periods through handling artefacts, playing games, and literally travelling from the Stone Age to the Iron Age in one day.

 

Our Spring Term topic explores a huge amount of geographical learning, thinking and skills. During our first half term topic 'Where In The World', the children develop their knowledge and understanding of our planet, such as understanding of countries, continents and geographical features such as the equator. We progress to apply this learning in Spring 2, when we direct our world learning to build understanding about 'Why are deserts so dry and jungles so wet'?

 

Our Final topic of the year is 'Romans'. Once again we travel back through time and learn what life was like for Romans. This year we are planning on visiting Ufton Court and have a Virtual Reality Experience of Rome.

 

As part of our P.E. programme, we take the children on a six week swimming course at Farleigh School. The children love swimming with their peers and it is always something they are excited about, and are always disappointed when the course is finished.
