Term 6 - What's Left?
This term the children will be learning about Space, Volcanoes and weaving! How do they all fit together, you ask? Well, ask the children to find out.
Term 5 - This term the learning question is ....What is water made out of?
Read the topic letter to find out what exciting learning opportunities the children have in store.
What a success!
Well, our day in London was a resounding success and the children all thoroughly enjoyed it. Although it was a long day, the children were marvelous and gained so much from the experience.
Thankyou for all your support in allowing this day to happen and I am sure that the learning for the rest of
the term will be fantastic as a result of it.
Take a look at the pictures!

TITAN'S CAKE SALE
We raised £46 again!
Thankyou for your support. We will be discussing what we should spend it on during Term 4.
There is an expectation that the children need to read everyday, to ensure that the skills they are being taught are embedded and used in different contexts. They should be bringing a book home everyday, so that they can spend 10 minutes reading the text and completing the comprehension task that accompanies it. There is also an expectation that the presentation of this homework is as good as the learning that they produce in school. It would be great if you could encourage your child to do this.
In Titan Class, we track the homework carefully, with 'reward markers' for homework completeted and outstanding effort!
The children will be learning spelling patterns and rules that will accompany a bank of words that are on the statutory spelling list for Year 3 and 4. Please can the children be encouraged to practise them and put them into sentences, as well as play the spelling games they are being taught in school.
Every Friday, the children will be set 3 pieces of Mathletics homework which will complement the learning they have done during the week. If the children cannot access Mathletics at home, they can use our Computer Room during lunchtime.
Holburne Museum - Wednesday 28th September 2016
On Wednesday 28th September, Titan and Ganymede went to visit a beautiful art gallery in Bath. They were an absolute credit to our school and proved themselves to be great ambassadors.
They were able to look at artefacts and portraits in detail, interrogating and questioning as they went through the day. The children were then taught about how to create portraits and then how to turn them into 18th Century style paintings.
It was a great day out and thankyou again to the staff of the Holburne Museum for making us feel so welcome.
Here are a few pics with some more to follow.
