Stonewall

In school, we are all working together to create a display linked to our Stonewall award. Stonewall works with institutions to ensure they have inclusive and accepting cultures. We are particularly focussed on making sure that our children grow up knowing that everyone is different, and that is okay. We are teaching our children the value of diversity and how to be accepting of others.

3L have been considering toys. Are there toys just for girls? Are there toys just for boys? After reading William’s Doll, we decided that toys are just toys. They are to be played with, whether you are a boy or a girl.

I hope you enjoyed completing your display work 3L 🙂

Friendship in 3L

A while ago, we posted about Miss Harvey’s idea to reward children who are being good friends to each other. We’ve really been enjoying this in 3L. Each day, someone receives the Good Friend Award based on their behaviour throughout the day. Miss Lord looks for friendship, kindness, effort, selflessness, and many more qualities to decide who will receive the award.

Not only does the winner get the Good Friend seat cover for the day, but they also get their photograph displayed proudly so that other teachers coming into our classroom can see straight away who our super kind and friendly children are.

What kind of things could you do to show that you deserve the Good Friend Award?

James Nicol

On Friday, we were visited by an author called James Nicol! We were invited to an assembly where he told us all about his books and lots of other fun, interesting facts about himself.

What can you remember about James Nicol 3L?

Science

Yesterday 3L went on their first trip to Bring Yer Wellies!

We had a great day learning about rocks, soils and fossils as part of our science topic.

We learned how to plant herbs and we each got to take home our own rosemary and oregano plants!

I hope you had lots of fun 3L.

A-Life

Last week we were visited by a company called A-Life who set up loads of exciting activities in the hall to teach us how to keep our bodies healthy.

We learned about which foods we need to eat, how much water to drink, how to brush our teeth properly and even how much sleep we need!

In the afternoon we did a fun fitness session as we know how important it is to exercise regularly.

I hope you had fun 3L!

KS2 Christmas Show

Last week, we took part in the Christmas show! We had two songs to learn and we performed them really well in all 3 of our performances to the parents. Miss Harvey was extremely impressed with Year 3’s singing.

Some children also took part as narrators, animals and shepherds.

I hope you enjoyed being part of this amazing show 3L!

Friendship

We have been focussing on friendship recently because Miss Harvey has introduced a new reward for children who are showing that they are a good friend.

In 3L, we award our good friend seat cover at the end of each day to someone who has been kind, thoughtful and positive throughout the whole day. Any teacher walking into the room can see who these amazing children are straight away!

What do you need to do to be a good friend?

Cross-curricular writing

In our literacy lessons over the past few weeks, we have been learning how to write a letter.

We then applied these skills in a history lesson. We learned about the cities of the Indus Valley and wrote a letter to a friend who might want to come and live there to explain what it was like.

I hope you enjoy our cross-curricular writes 3L!

Writing Area

This is our writing area in 3L.

The children can come to use the writing area as a reward or as part of their learning in literacy.

We have lots of resources to help you improve your work!

*editing passes
*spelling reminders
*handwriting helpers
*punctuation pyramid

We also have challenge cards which can be completed into our books or on the fancy paper in the writing area. There are lots of great pens and pencils to choose from in here.

I hope you like our writing area 3L!
