 Maths homework for week beginning 12th April 2021

A reminder that Maths homework is now online and due in on Monday 19th April. 12

Week beginning 22nd March 2021
 

This week, Class 3 have been working on completing their chat shows in English, which we will be filming towards the end of the week. We have been doing a few assessments in maths to gauge where the children are at, so that we can plan effectively for the Summer term and support the children in the best possible way. We have also continued with more work on percentages.

During the afternoons on Monday and Tuesday, we split into groups to investigate different biomes. The children are in the process of producing a series of Google Slides, so that they present their new knowledge to their peers about the biome they focussed on.   They have also been doing some Easter artwork. 

We would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter! 

With very best wishes, 

Mrs Reeve

Week beginning 15th March 2021
 

Class 3 have been working hard this week and are now used to working together back at school. We have been continuing our work on percentages and have been working on understanding that percent relates to 'number of parts per hundred' - linking this concept with decimals and fractions. We have  completed some problem solving and reasoning questions based on this. In English, we have been writing and structuring a series of questions to ask the character 'Lucky' from the novel 'Phoenix' by S.F. Said in the role of a chat show host. We will be continuing our chat show script throughout the week. In the afternoons, we have been completing some art work to use within our display on our topic Kenya.   

Bikeability during the week beginning 12th April
 

This is a quick reminder for any parents who are yet to return the Bikeability consent. We'd appreciate the return of all responses by Friday 19th March, to enable us to make all the necessary arrangements before the Easter holidays. Many thanks to those of you who have already responded to the letter and given your consent so quickly - it's much appreciated. 

Maths Homework for the weeks beginning the 15th and 22nd March. 
 

A reminder, this week's maths homework is now online and due in on Monday 22nd March. 

Next week's maths homework will go live on Sumdog on Monday 22nd March and will be due in on Monday 29th March. 

Homework for the remainder of the Spring and the Summer Term 
 

Homework will start during the week beginning Monday 15th March.

Sumdog will be online from Monday afternoon and is due in on Monday 22nd March. 

Spelling homework will be set by Mrs Martin. 

Please continue to read your own reading books at home. 

Week beginning 8th March - the first week back!  (Including Science Fair 2021!) 
 

We've had a gentle start to the week with a combination of maths and English as usual but also combined with some activities to support children with their return to school. We have also welcomed Mrs Martin to our team. We know she'll be a great asset to Orford School and we all look forward to working together. 

We made paper chains, and on each link, we wrote about all of the qualities that we have and reasons that we are proud of ourselves. 

On Monday and Tuesday, we began our unit on TV Chat shows for English, looking at a fictional chat show interviewing Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Together we identified the key features of TV Chat shows, so that we will be able to write a script for, then perform and record our version of a chat show based on a character in a novel. In Maths we began by starting a unit of work based on percentages. On Monday afternoon, in Art, we drew animal prints to create a background for the display board outside our Classroom based on our Kenya topic. We also went to the library to look at the new features that Miss Davis has worked on during the lockdown, to enable the children to find books more easily. The library looks really inviting now, thank you Miss Davis!     

On Tuesday, during the afternoon, the children of Class 3 participated in our brilliant Science Fair. Thank you to all of you who have supported your children, and thank you to the children themselves for creating, yet again, some fabulous investigations this year and for posting the videos online. Miss Cannon has created a video for you to enjoy, showing many of the superb investigations. Click here to view:

 . Class 3 set up their investigations and we held a whole school Google Meet, so that they could explain the science behind their investigations and share their brilliant displays. 

 

                                                              

Miss Cannon and I had the incredibly difficult task of choosing runners up and a winner, but after much discussion.... well done to:

 

Archie, our Science Fair Winner 2021                      and L-R, Rebecca, Ollie, Theo, Willa and Ella F, our runners up. 

 

But a huge well done to all of Class 3! 

After our science fair, we went into the garden and enjoyed chatting and experiencing being back at school, while helping to prepare the flower beds for the vegetables to be planted. 

 Chitting potatoes....

  

Class 3, it's been so lovely to see you all back and you've all been brilliant this week. See you on Monday,

School Reopening - Monday 8th March 2021
 

Welcome back Class 3 - we're so looking forward to having you all back in school. A few things to be aware of :

  • Please see Mrs Butler's letter detailing new arrangements
  • Remember to bring in water bottles and a healthy snack for break times
  • There will be no forest schools for Class 3 before the Easter break
  • PE will continue to be on Wednesday and Friday. On these days, please can your child come in to school wearing their PE kit.
  • The curriculum areas taught will be largely the same as the Autumn Term timetable but we will update any changes in due course
  • Please can you be aware that if your child brings a book in to school, we kindly ask that the book will be left in school for your child to read throughout the week. This will prevent unnecessary items travelling to and from school on a daily basis. We therefore ask that your child will also have a book that they are reading simultaneously at home. 
  • Should you need to contact us, please revert back to the usual system of emailing the school admin account, rather than using staff email addresses. 
  • If you have concerns about any aspect of your child's return to school, please feel free contact us. 

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow! 

Best wishes, 

Mrs Reeve

Christmas Church Service 2020

This year, our Christmas church service was a little different, with friends and families joining us virtually, however, it didn't stop Class 3 from delivering a great performance.  Everybody in the class write a verse to contribute to our class poem, which we then read aloud to share for our performance.  We hope htat you enjoy reading it below.

 

Bring the Christmas Spirit

A shared write poem, by Class 3

 

Lucy: Bring the children so excited 

Bring the snow falling in the wind

School’s ready to close for the Christmas break

As Christmas is going to begin 

 

James: Bring the evergreen Christmas trees

With their pine smell

And their emerald branches 

Bring the ringing bells. 

 

Archie: Bring your multi-coloured glass bulbs,

Filled with hopes and dreams 

Glistening brightly for the future

Sending out magnificent beams

 

Jamie: Bring the twinkling tinsel

And the bulbs that are alight

It’s wonderful to see and 

It fills me with delight

 

Saskia: Bring the crackling fireplace 

Glowing in the moonlight

Glowing as bright as morning sunshine

Its new dawn fills me with delight

 

Ella F: Bring the comforting warm flames,

Like soft soot and wood in the fire,

Bring the crunchy crackle,

Bring Christmas spirit running higher!

 

Anna : Bring the  presents wrapped under the tree

Like a nut waiting to be seen

Watching the golden wrapping,

Covering a little girl’s dream

 

Dylan: Bring children unwrapping presents,

Bring the happy faces

Bring the gift boxes of joy

Bring the toys In many places

 

Jodie: Bring the decorations

Bring the radiant red elf

I see it moving whilst

Sitting on a vibrant Christmas shelf

 

All: Bring the juicy turkey,

roast potatoes, pigs in a blankets

Bring the brussels, bring the parsnips

Bring the delicious Christmas banquet

 

Willa: Bring the pudding fresh out of the oven

To be a nice warm treat

Something to enjoy at the end of the day

The smell brings joy to everyone you meet

 

Rebecca: Bring the snow falling from the sky

Sparkling snowflakes falling to the ground

Dancing from up high

Shining like a million diamonds in a mound

 

Ella W: Bring glistening and shimmering snowflakes

As silent as an owl’s swooping sound

Dancing gracefully in the cold winter air

Falls with a gentle crunch to the ground

 

Jazmine: Bring the sparkling, smooth glass baubles, 

Christmas is over fast

Let the people come together

And let them remember memories from the past

 

Ollie: Bring the relaxing, reassuring hug

The warm comforting fire

The crispy, crackling sounds, 

Orange and flickering, the warmth that I desire

 

Theo: Bring the Christmas Spirit,

Bring the holy Christmas star

Bring Jesus Christ our saviour

Ring the bells of heaven, rejoicing from afar

 

Cecily: Bring families giving altogether

Bring all the love and joy

Singing carols merrily across the town

While Father Christmas has your toy

 

All: After the year of 2020

Bring us Christmas spirit aplenty

 

Merry Christmas! 

 

Decorating the School Christmas Trees
 

Class Three have spent some of this afternoon decorating either the hall Christmas tree or the tree in the entrance foyer - both look wonderful. Thanks to the children, Miss Davis and Mrs Gridley for their help with this!

Christmas Decoration Afternoon - 30th November 2020
 

This afternoon, the children of Class 3 created some fabulous Christmas decorations for hoops to hang in the hall. We hope you enjoy some of the photos of their afternoon! 

              

The finished result.......
