Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome to Year 3 Elm Class!

We’ve had a fantastic start to the year and the children are loving our ‘Mummy Mayhem’ topic!  We have already enjoyed finding out lots of new facts and have even written and decoded our own hieroglyphics.

A little about the teachers… I’m new to this school but have been teaching a number of years; in my spare time I enjoy exercising, body boarding and painting. Our TA Miss Martin was previously working in Year 6; in her spare time she enjoys reading, running and cooking. We look forward to getting to know you all over the course of this year. 

Please find our Term 1 Newsletter, Topic overview and Spellings attached below.

Any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to come and have a chat with me in the mornings or at the end of the day.

Graffiti workshop in Year 6!

This week, a local graffiti company – Graft – visited Stoke Park Primary to excite the children about the upcoming re-design of the shutters on Gainsborough Square!
Year 6 were also lucky enough to spend the morning taking part in a graffiti workshop where they experimented using paint pens to create their own graffiti artwork on wooden plaques! Don’t they look amazing?

Tadpoles

Dragonfly class have been excited to see our frogspawn turn into tadpoles. They have been recording what they can see and observing them daily. The children have been writing some lovely instructions on how to look after tadpoles too!

Nursery and Reception Farm Trip

We got up close and personal to some wonderful farm animals today at Court Farm Country Park. Not only did we see new born lambs, help feed the friendly cows but also watched farmer Pete milk a cow! The falling snow added to this magical experience and I am sure the children will remember this trip for a very long time.

Life Bus

Life bus We loved our first ever experience on the Life Bus today. We looked at how to keep healthy and happy. Hope you enjoy the photos.

 

Dragonfly class trip

Last week, Reception children went on their very first school trip. We had a fantastic autumnal day at Westonbirt Arboretum observing the changes to the trees using our senses. We also went on a Gruffalo hunt and were thrilled to see him and the other characters in the story that we are studying.

Flying start in Dragonfly class

Reception children have had a fantastic start to school life! They have settled in brilliantly to school routines and have been busy having fun with their learning. The children voted to change our class story from Owl Babies to Hedgehog Babies so we made hedgehogs out of salt dough and made hedgehog bread!   We hope you like the pictures.

Hazel class discover an alien invasion!

The children discover a crash landing with clues that aliens have landed in our school. We read the story The Aliens Are Coming! The children created fabulous posters and presented their ideas on how to scare the aliens away, such as, make a trap, make scary masks and dazzle them with lots of camera flashes.

Going the distance!

A huge congratulations to an enthusiastic group of Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children who travelled to St Bede’s to compete in a Cross Country event this evening. Despite there being approximately 70-80 children per race, each and every one of them persevered and encouraged each other to complete it to the best of their ability. A special mention to one of our Year 5 pupils who came a fantastic third place, earning them entry to represent North Bristol in the finals on Sunday 20th November! A big well done to all who participated! Go Stoke Park!
