Hi Class 3

Some welcome sunshine this weekend after a soggy week so I hope you manage to make the most of it and enjoy your family time.

It is hard to believe that this is our last week of term. There is so much we have all missed out on during these lockdown months and I'm sad the year hasn't ended as it should have for you all. I do look forward to seeing all my Y6's on Tuesday for our 'afternoon tea' celebrations so we can say a proper goodbye. I am only sad that the Y5's cannot be there to join us.  I certainly have missed you all. 

Worker of the Week for Y6's this week is Darci and for Y5's is Angel! Very impressed with your hard work and effort girls and especially your letter from your MP Angel - well done. An extra 10 Dojo points for you!

Here is the weekly overview of the tasks set for next week. Please keep trying with your on-line lessons, I know there is only 1 week left but try to keep your learning momentum going. I know it is not the same as being in school but it is really important that you keep up the effort. 

As always, push yourself to produce the best work you can and if you are struggling or need support then let me know. For now however, enjoy the weekend, stay safe and have some fun.

Take care
Mrs E xx

Hello Class 3,

I hope you and your family are keeping healthy and well during these unusual times and managing to keep up with your learning.  Hopefully your packs are keeping you busy and should tide you over till the end of the Easter Holidays - remember quality is important so don't forget to polish, double check your work and do your corrections!

You should receive in the post over the next week or so, a QR code for 'Class Dojo' which is a school communication platform that teachers, students and families can use. This platform enables me to set tasks and activities for you to access and in turn, you can share work and messages with me or our class as a whole. 

Work will be set on a weekly basis and will begin on the 20/04/20, so keep a look out.  Remember if you need anything you can contact me beforehand on boynton.primary@eastriding.gov.uk  

Keep safe, be kind and keep learning!

**************************** Message to Class 3 ************************ 

Dear Class 3

We are all incredibly sad that our lovely school is closed to most of you and that we can no longer teach, learn and enjoy school together.

Mrs Hall, Mrs Mortimer, Mrs Gladstone and I would like to say how much we will miss you as part of our Class 3 family, and hope you and your families keep safe and healthy throughout these difficult times.

Keep smiling, keep learning and keep positive - you are all amazing.  If you need any help or advice you can contact me at boynton.primary@eastriding.gov.uk

We look forward to seeing you all as soon as the school re-opens.

Take care

Mrs E xx

 

 

As part of our 'Individual Liberty' topic, Class 3 visited London for the day. With the help of The Children's University, we traveled down to London on the train, went on a sunny Thames boat cruise, saw the Houses of Parliament and 10 Downing Street. We saw how our system of democracy works and what we can do when we want things to change.

Welcome to Class Three

Our topic this term is.....

Space

A warm welcome back to Class 3 to a busy and exciting term,  after what I hope was an exciting and enjoyable Christmas holiday.  Our topic this term will boldly go where no man has gone before as we learn and discover about space and our solar system!  

As always, if you have any resources, artefacts or knowledge that you feel you could share with us regarding our topic this term - then please let us know! 

 

Literacy this term will develop our research and non-fiction writing skills as we create non-chronological reports about the planets in our solar system looking at each one in detail, to create our own class reference book.  This will be followed by a persuasive text about the moon landing as we look carefully at the arguments of those that believe it happened and those that don't and decide for ourselves which side to base our persuasive writing on.  What do you believe?  

We continue to prepare for our 'SATs' in May and as always, our emphasis will be grammar, spellings, punctuation and reading through daily practice, weekly guided reading sessions and booster lessons.   

Numeracy will address the specified curriculum for Year 5 and 6 children incorporating the units of number and place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurements, geometry, statistics, algebra, ratio and proportion. The Y6 children will be having regular math booster sessions. 

History/Geography this term will be a little closer to home as we look at 'Extreme Earth' and the wilder side of Earth's extremes from raging topical storms to violent erupting volcanoes and terrifying towering tsunamis!  We will also explore how these extremes affect people, communities and landscapes.  Our focus in history will explore the history of the telescope and astronomy, the moon landing, space exploration and the space race between the Soviet Union and the USA.   

Art/Design and Technology will be bold and bright as we take inspiration from the American artist and space enthusiast Peter Thorpe.  We will look at his use of abstract art in the background and space art in the foreground to create our own imaginative designs.  We will develop our skills in how to use rich and bold shades and textures to create pieces.  Keep your eye on our classroom wall to see our dramatic work take place. In technology, we will be planning, designing, building and testing our own moon lander.  Can we build a vehicle that will survive a landing from a high height and keep the precious 'egg' cargo intact?  

Science  will branch into physics as we take a look at 'Space' and in particular the Sun, Earth and Moon and how we discovered they were all spherical.  We will also research their sizes and distances from each other, how we have day and night, seasons, different time zones and how the planets and the moon moves across the sky.  We will also continue with our 'Seeing Light' unit as we research how light travels, how shadows are formed and behave as well as taking a closer look at the eye and study how it works.  Many opportunities for practical skills, hands on research and investigations to help develop our understanding of the physical side of science. 

Music this year continues to  offer the exciting challenge of learning to play the ukulele!  We will also develop our understanding of musical notation to help us compose, play and sing along to our own scores.  

R.E. will focus on 'Hopes and Visions' as we consider the impact of key teachings from Christianity, Islam and Sikhism  and ponder some big questions before sharing some of our own hopes and dreams for the future.  

P.S.H.C.E. over the course of the term will address issues around global differences and conflicts as well as those closer to home providing discussions as to the choices we all make at different times in our life.  Class circle time discussions provide children with an opportunity to discuss issues that are important to them and address what constitutes 'British Values' including democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance. 

P.E this term will see the children developing and strengthening their skills, coordination and techniques in gymnastics and dance at the leisure center. By focusing on strength and control - the children will learn to use the equipment safely, work cooperatively and move with pace and confidence.  

French this term will focus upon 'Space'as the children develop their understanding of the language by speaking and listening and reading and writing.   Through games, activities and role play, the children will also learn about the culture and traditions of France in context of their learning.  

ICT over the course of this term will consist of 'Coding' as the children learn key concepts such as algorithms, sequences and variables and learn how to code in order to create apps and games that the children can play.     

 

 We really appreciate your support by encouraging your child to read at least 4 times a week, to practice their spellings and to complete their homework and return it back to school on the hand in date.  Many thanks.

 

Our Anglo Saxon topic last term, and in particular our Ron Dearing University trip, was fantastic and was described by the children as being 'brilliant', 'gruesome' and 'amazing!' We have produced some stunning work which can be seen in the classroom, the corridors and in our books.  Feel free to come and look at our outstanding work!   

Here are a few photos from our Anglo-Saxon topic...
