Welcome to Poseidon

poseidonWelcome to year 3! A little bit of a change this year, Miss Bell now over sees the class as Mrs Spencer has moved on and Mrs Townsend has had her baby boy. 

Homework and spellings will both be sent out on a Friday. Homework should be handed in by the following Thursday to be marked and handed back with new homework.

This Term...

This term we are learning all about the Romans! This will form the basis for lots of our literacy writing, our curriculum lessons and art/D and T this term. 

We will be looking at lots of famous Roman emperors and learning about the lives of other Roman legends. Added to this, we will be looking at volcanoes with particular focus on the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.


Learning Updates

It has been a very busy week at Hall Meadow with parents evening and the final few days of Beat the Street. Everyone in Poseidon has been very excited when checking the leader boards!

On Wednesday we joined lots of the other classes on a Beat the Street walk around the local area. All of the children behaved impeccably and demonstrated their knowledge of road safety when walking around. A huge well done to everyone in both Poseidon and the whole school for being so active during Beat the Street! 

In the classroom this week we have continued to look at column addition and subtraction and all of the children are beginning to have a go at questions without hesitation, which is great to see. 

We began a new science topic this week, rocks! There are so many different types of rock and we will continue to look at some of them in more detail over the coming weeks, including fossils! 

We ended the week with a visit from James Dasaolu as part of Sport for Champions. The children really enjoyed taking part in the exercises and lots of the children had the chance to met him. 

Hopefully we will have just as much fun next week!

What a wonderful week to end the half term! 

Despite having to complete autumn assessments, we have had a great final week. 

All of the children worked really hard with their assessments and really tried their best. 

Most afternoons this past week we have spent looking at the Rugby World Cup. With England into the final, it was a great chance for the children to learn more about rugby and get into the spirit of the world cup. As part of this the children worked in groups on a rugby project. These projects formed the basis for most afternoon work and the children thoroughly enjoyed completing them! 

Each group was given a question to investigate such as 'Does the length of your arm effect how far you can throw?'. We then set about carrying out our investigations, measuring, throwing a rugby ball, kicking a rugby ball etc. Each group then created a poster including their results and had the chance to research players or the history of rugby and include it on their poster. All groups then presented their work to the rest of the class and Mr Palmer stopped by as a keen rugby player to have a look at the work produced. 

The outcome was excellent and all of the children had a great time producing their work! 

We also set up a height chart in our classroom and compared our heights to the height of England player Courtney Lawes who is 6ft7! 

Everyone is definitely due a well deserved break over half term!

How you can help!

Practising spellings with your child for a short time regularly is the best way to help them learn. Reading at home with your children regularly is also a great help to their learning. Children have an independent reading book that they take home with them and this can be changed within the classroom once they have finished reading it. Each child then works within a group to read a more difficult book, guided by an adult. This is a guided session so we talk through the book in lots of detail.
