Muddle is Max in a.

No special notices for next week. 

The teachers really enjoyed reading your writing based on "The Hodgeheg" this week. We particularly liked the description of different settings from Max's point of view. Here is a sample;

Max found himself in a strange place. There were lots of little monsters silently writing on pieces of paper. On a door there was a colourful rainbow. On the rainbow there was red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. A big monster had a desk with a bin as stinky as a bog. "I'm scared," whispered Max to himself. Everyone was rocking on their chairs. Up down up down. Max nearly got squashed! He tried to push a door open but a girl saw him! "Mrs Meredith," the girl screeched! Max tried to run but the teacher saw him. A boy caught him and gave Max to a teacher. "Let's get you some freedom," said the teacher.

Max found himself in strange place. There were tables with small humans leaning over them. There was also a large human speaking to the smaller humans in a language he didn't understand one bit! The tables were about ten hedgehogs tall. Max noticed that the smaller humans were all wearing the same clothes as each other! Around the room were some exquisite displays and decorations pinned up on the walls and there was also a circle with numbers and two arrows moving round very, very, very slowly to the right. Also there was a place where there were coats, bags, jumpers and hats.

Next week we will continue reading "The Hodgeheg" by Dick King Smith.

In Science, we have some fun things planned involving some yummy foods and a special visitor!

Here are some photos from this week's Science, where we were looking at different soil types.

Have a great weekend

Competition Time!

First of all, it was lovely to see everyone on Tuesday for the parents' consultation evening. We hope you found it as useful as we did.

Now onto business...

House Art competition: As you all know, Mrs Wright has organised a competition that invites you to create a piece of 2D artwork based on the work of Roald Dahl. The deadline for entries, previously the 10th, has now been extended to 17th October. See the poster in the classroom for more information.

Christmas Poster Competition: Entries also due in on 17th October to Mrs Wright. Winners will be invited to turn on the Christmas lights and the winning poster will be used as the design for the official Mayor's Christmas card so do get those entries in!

Homework due in: Monday 6th October - English, Maths (via the Mymaths website) and a spelling test.

Stars of the Week: A massive well done to Eva of Cedar and Alex of Rowan who are the proud owners of the 'gold cushion'. Keep up the good work, you two!

Friday 10th October: We are celebrating Roald Dahl Day in school, so we look forward to seeing you all dressed as a character from your favourite book.

School Council reps: Congratulations to Libby and Luke in Cedar and Jasleen and Ralph in Rowan! The official badges are on their way to you. We are sure you will be fantastic representatives of Year 3.

We've had a very busy week in Year 3 as usual. In maths, we've been learning all about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and sorting them onto Venn and Carroll diagrams and in English we've been working as newspaper journalists, writing reports on the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. As usual, we can't wait to see how your writing is progressing! We all had a very creative afternoon on Friday, with Cedar starting their Egyptian shaduf artwork and Rowan making green thinking hat 'messy cakes'. It was a great end to the week.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Mrs Wright and Mrs Meredith.
