Home Learning

As the half term comes to a close (can you believe it?) I thought it would be nice to share and celebrate some of the wonderful pieces of home learning I have happily recieved. The care, time and effort put into these pieces is fantastic and it has been great to see the children's enthusiasm for learning continue at home. I would like to say a huge well done to everyone who completed a piece of work to put into their topic books, science books, or to display proudly in our classroom.

 

I look forward to seeing what the next half term brings!

Making a Small World

This afternoon, Lower Key Stage 2 got together to do some outdoor learning based on our '21 things to do at Hatch Ride.' Together, we created small worlds/habitats for animals in our school grounds. The children had such fun collecting items and trying different ways of putting them together to create an environment for an animal. Each group could tell us exactly what they were doing and why. It was lovely to see the children outside enjoying our wonderful school grounds and working collaboratively with each other. We even got a visitor from a spider and a robin already in two of the worlds! We are going to visit them again tomorrow quietly to see if we can see any signs of life!

A Smashing Time at Badminton

Today, the sports team took some pupils from Year 3 and Year 4 to a badminton event at Waingels College in Woodley. The children competed against 8 other schools in a variety of badminton-style activities and had a wonderful time. As always, they behaved impeccably and made us very proud with their sportsmanship and positive attitude. They each got better as the afternoon went on! Well done LKS2!

How to Hold a Violin Bow

Today, the children learnt how to hold their violin bow, ready for next week. We also practised playing the notes we have learnt already and sung a fun song with actions practising rhythm.

Hindu Temple

This morning, the children explored a Hindu Temple in Reading. We listened to some traditional music and singing, asked lots of good questions and heard all about traditions of the Hindu faith. What a lovely start to the week!

Popping Fun!

This afternoon, Year 3 experienced a STEM workshop. We learnt about how popcorn is made, designed and created our own flavors and packaged them too! What a fantastic afternoon! A huge thank you to our visitors.

Election Day!

In KS2, pupils have the chance to become a member of the School Council and, new to this year, part of the Eco Committee. Through School Council and Eco Committee, pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that reach a solution together. Today, all candidates gave their well-thought out speeches and answered questions about why they would make a great member. Then, we voted! I am so proud of each and every one of them and they should be very proud of themselves.

Scroll to reveal of our new members for 2019...

Goal!

Today was a very exciting afternoon. We took some Year 3 pupils on the first sports event of the year! The boys played in a football tournament at Waverly Prep School and had a blast! They won 2 games, drew 1 and lost 1 - coming joint second out of 5 teams. Well done boys, what a great way to 'kick off' the year!

Calculation Methods

Below are images to show our current written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In year 3, the written calculation focus is on adding and subtracting numbers with up to 3 digits and multiplying and dividing 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers. Just click on an image to enlarge it. There is also a link below to a page of the school website which has videos of students explaining some methods as they do them. There are currently no videos of Year 3's calculation methods for multiplication and division... yet! But, I hope you find these images we have in the class useful. Happy calculating!

Times Tables

Below are some links to help the children practise their times tables and some information about how to support your child with multiplication and division facts. In Year 3, we will be focussing on revising 25, and 10 times table taught in Year 2, and learning the 34, and 8 times tables.  It is expected that children can quickly recall all of the times tables by the end of Year 4.

Welcome to Year 3! 

What a super start to the year! Soon, you will see useful information regarding Year 3, plus exciting celebrations of some of the things we've been up to. Some of the posts will be written by the students themselves, too! Watch this space!

Getting Ready for Year 3!

The children were excited to welcome year 3 pupils into their classroom last week.  The year 3 children were keen to show off some of the work they have been doing to give year 2 an idea of some of the exciting work that they will be doing next year!

Measuring Capacity

The children have been learning about volume and capacity, and using millilitres as a unit of measurement.  They compared different sizes of containers by filling one with water and then transferring the water to a different container, while predicting whether the second container had a bigger or smaller capacity than the first container.  They have also been making potions that Winnie the Witch would be proud of, following carefully a recipe and measuring the liquids in millilitres accurately.

Show and Tell was extra exciting this week with the children sharing some fabulous objects from Kenya. The children were very excited to find out about Kenyan shillings and surprised at how little they could buy for 1000 shillings! They loved playing a tune on a Kenyan instrument and were very interested in the wooden carvings that were shared. A big thank you to the children and parents who made this possible!

As part of our science work, the children had a great time in our Welly Wednesday session exploring the best patterns to help our chameleons hide! They had a great understanding of camouflage by the end of the session and the chameleons were so well hidden that we actually lost some!!

 

Welcome to Year 2!

 

 

Kenya! 

 

We are so enthusiastic about our new topic, which is Kenya! We have learnt about the oceans and continents of the world. I am sure the children would love to sing you a song about this if you ask! We have thought about how we would travel to Kenya and what we would need to take. We have also thought about animals that we might meet if we were to go on a safari to Kenya. We enjoyed creating African animal land art in our Welly Wednesday session. We have looked at African patterns in art.

 

Check out our amazing buffalo that was created during Welly Wednesday!
