Thank you

To the children of 3EC, it has been a year filled with many great memories, thank you for all your hard work, dedication and fun.

Thank you to all the parents as well. As a team we make the children in our lives happy and help them to succeed.

Thank you for the gifts and cards.

I hope you have a fabulous summer and I will see you all in September.

A message of thanks…

Kate, Jane, Matthew, Giles, Debs and Dave would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored our 40 mile ‘Trek Through the Night’ walk. We set off at midnight and we all crossed the finish line at 3.30pm yesterday (Sunday).   It was one of the hardest things we have ever done and we were one of very few teams who crossed the finish line with all members standing.  Knowing that we had everyone’s support made such a difference.
We’ve raised about £3000 for Action Medical Research which is a fantastic amount.  And it’s still not too late to donate if you would like to – just follow this link https://www.action.org.uk/sponsor/TheSlendertones

This week we have started looking at a new book to inspire our writing called Fly Eagle Fly. We have acted out parts of the journey that a farmer takes to find his calf which leads him to finding a Eagle chick. We have also thought about describing the places that he goes working as a team to gather words to help us. Finally we spent the afternoon painting the penultimate scene to the story ready for us to write more next week.

In Maths we have been looking at pictograms and remembering the importance of reading a key.

What kind of data could you collect this weekend ton make your  own pictogram?

Next week we will find out if our predictions were correct when we look at our science experiments.

Finally, don’t forget swimming hat, goggles, costume or shorts if you got one of the letters about going swimming next week. It will be every day!

 

Have a great weekend,

Miss Conner

MAPP Day

A reminder it’s MAPP day tomorrow. If your child is going to do a sports activity please come dressed in your kit. It is school uniform as always.

Please have a chat to your child about how they are going to behave when off school premises to support the expectations of the school and ensure that they stay safe.

Thank you

Miss Conner

I wonder…

This week we have continued to wonder a lot of things…

Will this stop the sun damaging materials?

What does capacity mean?

How much water can we get in there?

Who will our next teacher be?

It’s great to keep questioning the world around us and exciting to learn something new everyday.

In maths the questions have surrounded measuring liquids.

Find a measuring jug at home and see what capacity different cups and glasses have in your kitchen.

We have set up our Science experiments to test sun protection and started to write up our posters to share with you and the rest of the school.

Last question for the week… Will the sun come out for our fair on Saturday?

Rosendale Summer Fair – Saturday 1 July – 1pm – 4pm 
It’s the Rosendale Summer Fair on Saturday.  A reminder that all this week the PTA are selling raffle tickets in the blue hut before and after school.  The raffle will be drawn at the summer fair on Saturday.
Entry to fair is via the Turney Road gate. As well of lots of fun activities, and crafts there will be lots of challenges (athletic and fun!) and performances from our very talented KS1 and KS2 Choirs, Steel Pan band and our orchestra.
See you there,
Miss Conner

How far could you go?

Call them crazy but starting at midnight on the 15th July, Miss Atkins, Mrs Boothroyd, Mr Criddle, Mrs Salmon and Mr Brokensha will be walking 40 miles along the South Downs Way to raise money for Action Medical Research. This is a charity that funds research into diseases that affect children. They will be ably supported in their endeavour by their driver, Dave – Rosendale’s premises officer – who will hopefully have them back in time for work on the Monday!

If you would like to sponsor them and support the work of this important charity, here is the link to their sponsorship page. Further information about the work undertaken by Action Medical Research can also be found there:

Many thanks from the team
