Here's our Red Nose Day Harlem Shake video. Enjoy!
Last week, Year 3 spent lots of time writing their letters to Santa Claus. We looked at the critical features of a letter and together wrote a Success Criteria for our letter. We wrote our first draft, making sure we didn't just
write a list of things we wanted off Santa! Our teacher marked our letters and then we copied them up on to Christmas writing paper. Finally, we put our finished letters into an envelope, wrote Santa's address, stuck on our stamps and as a year group walked down to the postbox to post them off, singing Christmas carols on the way! Here are some photos of our walk and a photo of every one of us posting our letter! Hopefully Santa will have time to write back soon..
Thank you to all the parents who sent in a stamp or money towards one!
We have set up a class Twitter account ( we will be adding the feed to our blog when Mr. Arthur figures out how to do it!) for the mean time if you would like to follow us you can do so - @ClassJ2
We have been working hard this week, looking at a healthy diet and how to eat a balance of foods to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Here are some pictures of us working in our groups to try and arrange the food groups using a healthy eating pyramid.
Roald Dahl day
Today was the opening of our new Family partnership learning center which has been decorated with characters from famous Roald Dahl stories. We helped to celebrate by dressing up as our favourite characters from some of his books. We also had a Reading Cafe where we read Mr. Arthur's favourite Roald Dahl Story "George's Marvellous Medicine". We then had a go at drawing our own ingredients for our own "Marvellous Medicines". We had lots of fun coming up with our own horrible concoctions!
Remember as it says in the story "Don't try this at home!"
Tomorrow will be our fund raiser for Children in Need, please wear something spotty and bring a donation for the cause. We will also be holding a bake sale at 10.15 so you may need extra tuck money.
We have had a very busy half term but everyone is settling in really nicely, some of the things that we have studied so far have been friendship, bullying and the Celts. I have been really impressed with the quality of the learning logs that have been sent in so far and really look forward to seeing the work the children can produce over the half term. I have put up a few pictures of some of the things that we have been doing for you to enjoy. Hope everyone has a fun half term and stays safe.
