Hello everyone, we hope you are enjoying your time off and doing lots of fun things!
A few parents have asked what topics we are planning to teach in the summer term so please find attached our curriculum overview. Any home research or exploration that the children can do into any of these topics will give them a great head start when we return!
Maths and English is skills based rather than topics so just keep on playing those online games, reading lots and practicing those times tables!
If you need any help or would like to tell me what you've been up to - maybe send me a book review or a photo of a picture you've made, please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Ms Doran :)
Hi Hermione Class,
We are missing you all and hope you are having lots of fun at home.
Have you put a rainbow up in your window yet? If you have, how about adding a sunshine?
As we have recently looked at the water cycle in Geography, why not make a water cycle picture or model?
We hope you are all practising your times tables on TT Rockstars.
Don't forget to sit down and have a good read. If you like listening to stories, you can listen to David Walliams tell a different short story at 11 a.m. each day. Just go to worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses
Remember, you can do some of the activities in your pack and on the Bingo sheet and don't forget to do some exercise. P.E. with Joe Wicks is on at 9 a.m. every morning, but you can do it at any time!
Missing you all. Take care. Lots of love from Mrs Stevenson, Ms Doran and Miss Dale xxx
Our P.E. days are Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure you have your kit in school (black shorts or joggers, white T-shirt and black pumps).
Ukelele lessons are on Tuesday mornings. Children will be given a Ukelele to use. If you decide to take your Ukelele home, you must look after it and bring it back every week.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be handed in by the following Wednesday.
Each week the children will be presented with certificates in assembly for VIP, Maths Mind, Writer of the Week and P.E.

On Tuesday 7th May, Year 3 visited the Sycamore Centre where we had a wonderful day!
We played with all of the different equipment, the water play, the mud kitchen and then we finished the day having popcorn around the camp fire!
An amazing day Year 3; well done!
Our new and exciting topic is exploring Mountains, Rivers and Coasts with Bear Grylls. We are going to have an exciting adventure and learn so much!!!!
WBA Nurture Trip
On Wednesday 13th February, 8 children from Year 3 and 4 visited the West Bromwich Albion Ground to take part in their final nurture session for the term.
They got there on the WBA mini-bus, went and had a look at the stadium and the ground, made a self esteem -shirt, developed their breathing skills by blowing bubbles, created their own 'ME' frame and finished the session by designing and making their own calm down bottle!
A super afternoon everyone! Well done!
Our P.E days for the Autumn term are every Monday and Wednesday.
Please ensure that your child has a named PE kit in school every week, and that earrings are removed on these days.
We love reading in Hermione Class! To encourage the children to read at home on a regular basis, the children will be given a raffle ticket for each day they read. So they can be awarded 7 tickets a week! These will be put into a weekly draw and a prize will be given. Children can read their reading book, books of their own, library books or even the local newspaper!
Healthy Eating Workshop
On Wednesday 6th February, Year 3 took part in a Healthy Eating Workshop.
We discussed the Eat Well Plate and a balanced diet. We then sorted different types of food into different groups.
We learnt a lot in this session; well done everyone!
Let's Dance around Europe!
On Thursday 24th January, we had our class assembly!
We went on a whirlwind adventure around Europe, providing everyone with exciting facts and amazing dances from each country!
Well done everyone! You were all brilliant!
Santa Safari Trip!
On Monday 3rd December, the whole of Year 3 went to Santa Safari at West Midlands Safari Park!
We stayed on the coach for the drive through safari, we then went to see Santa in his grotto where we got to choose our own present, we then walked around the Ice Age, Dinosaur Land and the Reptile House before finishing our day with a drink and a cookie from Mrs Claus! A wonderful day Year 3 and an amazing way to kick start all of our Christmas celebrations!
Every week we celebrate our successes by having a Writer of the Week, Sports person, Maths Mind and a VIP.
Hermione Class have done some brilliant Drama work in the last few weeks. We performed the oral story Awful Auntie by David Walliams and we performed some Greek Myths and Legends. We have some amazing actors in our class!!!!
