It has been a very busy few weeks with assessment week and multi-cultural week but this week we have settled back into the normal routine of the timetabled lessons. The children have been given homework and spellings this week and should be completed as normal.
The literacy homework this week is to find an advert from a magazine or on the internet which illustrates a toy which you would NOT recommend others to buy because it is too expensive or too dangerous or not practical etc. The advert should be a cut out and not stuck into the home work journals as we shall be starting to look at adverts and persuasive writing next week.
Year 3 have also started a new Science topic called Magnets and Springs. Next week we shall be conducting an experiment to identify which materials and metals are magnetic. If you could possibly bring in a metal object which could be tested in our experiment it would be greatly appreciated. We shall be conducting the experiment on Tuesday.
Next Friday 4th July, the Junior school shall be hosting an Art Exhibition displaying the children’s work which they created during multi-cultural week. The exhibition shall begin at 3pm until 4pm and take place in your child’s classroom. The picture which your child created will be displayed in a frame with a title and their name. If you would like to purchase your child’s framed work it will be £5. The money is going towards the resources used to create the artwork and towards the artists Angela and Liz who were hired to come in during multi-cultural week to do an art workshop with each class to create this lovely piece of art work. A letter was sent home this week and the children have created their own invitations to give you on Friday. We hope to see you there!
Have a lovely weekend and we hope you can join us at the school fete this Saturday!
