Saturday 6th March 2021

Oh my goodness!  Can you believe it? We're finally heading back into the classroom!  It's been sooooooooo long since we last saw you all together and we can't wait to see you.  Please see Mr Willis' latest newsletter for reminders of where you need to be and timings for the start and end of the day.


We will be having Indoor PE on Thursday this week and Outdoor Games, from an external provider, on Fridays - this is different from before so make sure you are wearing your kits on these days.


See you all on Monday!

Maths in the Real World Day


Hi folks,

Next week, on 16.11.20, we have our Maths in the Real World Day.   It is a chance for us to go to town on STEM subjects and learn about how Maths is applied in real situations.


This year, Year 3 will be looking at how geometry is used to inform architecture.   We will be then planning, building and testing the bridges we construct.   Throughout the day, we will be learning about accurate measuring, identifying patterns and learning about how 2D and 3D shapes are used to construct the world around us.

Super Hero Day was a Roaring Success!


We had a fantastic day; thanks for putting so much effort into your costumes!  In the morning, we did a guided role play in which we ventured to the caves underneath West Bridgford to defeat the vicious villain, Timmy the Tyrant/ Dr Evil. We had to use teamwork to cross pools of lava, unlock doors and swipe the 'Beads of Power' from our sleeping foe.


Later in the day, we looked at super foods, indeed every superhero army marches on its stomach.   We identified some of the ways our bodies are super and thought about the nutrition it needs to keep being awesome.   In Art, we looked at the life and work of Roy Lichtenstein and had a go a making our own pop art.  At the end of the day, we danced our Super Hero Flash Mob on the playground with the whole year group (in their own bubble).


Many thanks to Isaac's dad for making a video about his real-life superhero job - we think you're all superheroes!
