First week back.

We have had a busy week settling back into our learning routines. We have completed editing and improving our narrative endings and we are now looking at the language of persuasion. In Maths, we are extending our understanding of place value and have enjoyed playing games to develop our knowledge. Please keep logging on to TimesTable Rockstars regularly to keep our learning going at home.

A reminder that we will need out OUTDOOR PE kit for our session tomorrow. We will need a change of trainers to go out on the field and maybe a spare bag to put them back into when we get changed as they might be muddy! It might also be a good idea to bring a warm sweatshirt and trousers so that we don’t get cold outside.

We are continuing to collect 5p pieces as part of the schools fundraising this year. If you can spare any, please keep sending them in. The class will get a reward to spend when the bottle is full!

A wonderful day at Magna

We all had a wonderful time at Magna today. We enjoyed finding out more about magnets and enjoyed building large circuits. The children loved investigating in the Water Pavilion and were amazed by the fire cyclone in the Fire Pavilion.

The children were brilliantly behaved and were a real credit to the school. They were excited, engaged, polite and could discuss how the trip linked to the learning we have been doing in our expedition lessons.

We’d also like to say a great big thank you to the adults that joined us on the trip – we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Well done 3L. What a great day we all had!

Free books!

The children were really excited today to receive their very own FREE copy of a Roald Dahl book. They have been encouraged to take them home, look after them, treasure them, read them and share them with adults at home. Please encourage your child to read this book (or any other!) and enjoy the time together sharing the love of reading. Because all of the children received a free book, when they have finished reading theirs, they may wish to swap it with a friend’s book so that they can enjoy a different story as well.

Happy reading!

Thank you!

A great big thank you for all the 5p’s that have been sent in so far. The children are very excited every time we add them to our bottle.

Please continue to send them in. Every one you send helps us get closer to winning the £75. We are thinking of ideas already of how we’d like to spend it!

Plover Praise Time

This Friday (18th October) the children have chosen to bring in their own toys for Plover Praise Time.

Please don’t send in any electrical items (such as games consoles or tablets/iPads) and nothing of great value.

Thank you!

Another busy week ahead…

This week we have been learning about sources of light and we are looking forward to finding out more during our Expedition lessons.

In Maths we have been learning about adding strategies using rounding, doubling and adjusting. We have been persevering all week and we are feeling far more confident now.

We are eagerly awaiting our school trip to Magna on Wednesday and the Halloween Disco on Tuesday evening. It’s going to be a busy week!


We have been learning about electrical circuits and about how if they have a break in them the electricity cannot flow round. We made the bulb light up using a switch and found out about insulators and conductors.

Every day we have been talking about our behaviour rubric and it has been good to see children trying their best to follow the Plover Pledge.

A robotic afternoon

Today in Year 3 we have been designing our own robots for the future.  We have drawn what we think they will look like and have come up some with special features that will make our lives easier.  Some examples include, Max the Moneymaker (a robot that makes money), Gamer boy (a robot for gaming) and Rosie the Cake Maker who makes delicious cakes.

Next week we will be writing all about these robots and we will be finding out about electricity.


The Iron Man

The children are really enjoying their topic learning about Robots.  We are enjoying reading The Iron Man and we have been predicting what will happen in the final chapter…we can’t wait to find out!

There has been some fantastic Home Learning coming in to school. It’s lovely to see how engaged the children are with their topic.

Just a reminder – if you have not sent back your child’s trip letter, please do so next week.

Have a lovely long weekend!
