To all the wonderful parents, carers and pupils of Wren Class - thank you so much for being so amazing! I have absolutely loved teaching in Year 3 this year and will never forget all your kindness and support. You are truly phenomenal and I look forward to hearing all your news from Mrs Hawes and Miss Gordon. 


Have a wonderful half-term holiday and enjoy the rest of the year!

It was a VERY busy week in school! We were all so proud of the Year 6 pupils for sitting their SATS with such great attitudes. They were excellent role models to the younger pupils in relation to trying your best! 


Wren Class, this week, worked very hard on: 

- Completing their Maths unit on 'Money' and starting a new unit on 'Statistics'

- Making posters for the Stretham Feast float linked to Mrs Hawes' class novel 'Fantastic Mr Fox'

- Further investigating structures in DT

- Starting their new unit in History: Ancient Greece

- Teamwork skills in OAA in PE

- Learning scientific names for bones in the human skeleton

- Recording their learning from the unit on Agriculture in Geography

- Identifying word families, their root words, prefixes and suffixes in SPaG


It has been great this week to have Miss Gordon visit Wren Class; getting to know names, personalities and learning styles. We look forward to her popping in again next week and then officially starting after the May half-term break. 


Have a wonderful weekend, Year 3. Have fun at the 'Colour Dash' and at all the 'Stretham Feast' activities smiley

Summer Week 3 marked National Skipping Week! Year 3 thoroughly threw themselves into the event and felt an immense sense of pride and achievement in their improved skipping skills and resulting fitness levels. 


Wren Class also took part in a drumming workshop and saw the importance of listening to those around them! 


In DT, pupils took great care to cut nets of cylinders accurately to form columns (important in Grecian buildings). 


In English, pupils wrote instructions for playing 'Poohsticks' - a game we hope you'll enjoy playing at some point in the near future!

- Fantastic Mr Fox (Mrs Hawes' class novel on Mon-Wed)

- The House at Pooh Corner (Mrs Tait's class novel on Thu-Fri)


On Thursday 18th April, we had a special Religion and Worldviews visit from Miss Twitchett. She was so impressed to hear how Year 3 pupils were able to debate 'charity' and how respectful they were in sharing opinions on how we should treat others. We were also fortunate enough to sample lots of yummy treats linked to the Jewish festival 'Passover' - yum! 

Mass and Capacity - Build it!

OAA - Focus on teamwork and communication
