Welcome to Miss Tose's ClaSS

Welcome to Year 3! This year, we have 22 wonderful children who are very eager to learn! I am sure we are going to have such an exciting year filled with fun, hands on learning through engaging and stimulating topics!

On this page you can find out what exciting activities we a get up to and important dates and information for your diaries. 

Here are a few important notices to get you started!

PE will take place on a Monday afternoon. Children will require a full PE kit and earrings must be removed.

Our weekly library slot is on a Monday. Your child will get the opportunity to take a book home. This book is to be returned to school for the following Monday.

On Tuesday's and Thursday's, toast is available to purchase at break times. The cost is 10p per slice.

On Friday break times there is a healthy fruity fantasy tuck shop. 

Reading books must be brought into school every day so that they can be changed. 

 

Christmas Party 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seafarer's Way Care Home

We visited Seafarer's Way Care Home early in December. We sang Christmas songs and took books to read to the residents! We can't wait to go back at Easter!

 

 

November topic update 2018

Our new topic of 'Into the Darkness' is going extremely well! Already, we have looked at different light sources and conducted experiments to test how a shadow is formed and what materials are reflective. Here are a few photographs of some of the experiments we have conducted! We have also learnt new vocabulary such as 'transparent, translucent and opaque'. 

Centre for Life

We had a brilliant time at our Centre for Life trip! We began the morning by ice skating. It was cold but we really enjoyed learning how to skate gracefully on the ice! Then, we went and had a turn of the 4D ride which was the Polar Express! The seats moved and we were all so excited! On the afternoon, we took part in a Light and Dark workshop where we learnt lots of new words and conducted experiments to see which materials let the most light through! 

 

 

Sikh Gurdwara Visit

As we were studying festivals of light and Diwali, we decided to go visit our local Sikh Gudrwara which is located in Ashbrooke. When we arrived, we had to take our shoes off and enter the main hall. In the main hall, we learnt all about the special Golden Temple and about the 10 Guru's, in particular, Guru Nanak who was the founder of Sikhism. 

 

Dear Diary

We have been reading the book 'Stone Age Boy' and decided to write a diary entry, taking on the character of George. We had done lots of work beforehand looking at exciting sentence openers, descriptive language, writing in past tense and having an interesting introduction. Have a look at some of the work on display in the classroom- it looks fabulous! We tried very hard with our handwriting too! 

 

Stone Age poo! 

We have been learning all about the diet of Stone Age people, and what better way to find out what they ate than to dissect Stone Age poo! The children couldn't believe we had to use our fingers to dissect the poo! Inside, we found fish bones, seeds, berries and corn. We wrote a list and created our very own Stone Age menus. 

 

RSPB Workshop - 20th September

We were very lucky to take part in an RSPB workshop which looked at 'Wild Words'. Using our outdoor area, we created a word bank which included fantastic 'wow' words to describe natural and living things. We will use some of these words in our Stone Age Boy story writing!  We had lots of fun using binoculars and magnifying glasses to explore our natural environment. Big thanks to the RSPB for their wonderful work! 

 

This half term, our exciting topic is Savage Stone Age! We have some engaging activities planned such as designing cave art, cooking over a fire, and a fantastic workshop booked where we will delve into the past through practical activities. The children already love our Stone Age reading cave and we can't wait to decorate it with cave art.
