    P.E. - In P.E we have been continuing to develop our throwing and catching skills.  As well as this we have also had a go at developing our batting skills by having a game of Rounders.  We have also been working on our team building skills and have been doing various team activities where we need to work together. 

     

    R.E - In R.E we have been looking at being thankful to the people who do a lot for us in our lives.  We have written the people, we have chosen, a letter to show them how thankful we are for them. 

     

     

    Art Day - 15.06.22

     

    On Wednesday we had a whole school Art Day.  Our for the day was to look at digital art.  We started by looking around the school for areas that give us happy memories.  We walked around the yard and took some of these photos on the IPad.  In the Afternoon we then used these images to paint over, using the computer software paint.   We included different shapes and different textures and also experimented with different colours.  We had a great time doing this and made some great art work!

    Fun with shapes in Maths - 09.05.22

    Some of our children enjoyed being outside this week and drawing faces, only using 2-D shapes.  We then had a shape hunt where we had to look for 3-D shapes that were hidden all around the yard.

    OUR SCHOOL TRIP TO OUTDOOR ELEMENTS

     

    Year 3 went on a school trip! We went to Outdoor Elements in Simonstone to find out more about The Stone Age.

    During the day, we ate like the Stone Age people! We made some bread dough and added some sultanas and cinnamon. The children rolled a little ball of dough into a sausage shape and twisted it round a stick to make a Stone Age bread twist. Then, we cooked our bread on a fire and ate it - it was delicious!

     

    Blyton then had a go at hunting for food! We learnt that the Stone Age people used stones to throw at smaller animals such as rabbits and birds to kill them for food. They used spears and a bow and arrow to catch the larger animals. We loved having a go at hunting!


    Finally, we had to build a shelter to protect ourselves from animals and adverse weather conditions. The Stone Age people often used animal skin as a shelter from the rain and the wind. They would twist and tie together nettles to make a strong rope to attach the animal skin to the trees. We learnt about different types of knots that they used.

    General reminders:

     

    PE days are Wednesdays with Miss Schofield and Thursdays with FUNDA.

     

    PE KIT: On the days that your child has a PE lesson, your child can come into school dressed in the correct PE kit as below. On all other days when your child does not have a PE lesson, your child must wear full school uniform and black, closed toe school shoes. 

     On the days when your child has a PE lesson, your child should come to school dressed as follows: 

    • Navy blue PE T-shirt (as now) 
    • Navy blue PE shorts (as now) 
    • Usual school navy blue (Y3 – Y5) or purple (Y6) sweatshirt with school logo 
    • Navy blue, plain, full length jogging pants or thick, black full length leggings  
    • Plain white or white sports socks  
    • Trainers (ideally these should be plain black but your child will be able to wear the trainers that they have worn in their PE lesson so far this term). Football and other types of sports boots are not allowed for PE lessons 
    • All hair that is long enough should be tied up with a blue, black or brown bobble 
    • Jewellery, including earrings, is not allowed.  

     

     

    Reading books - it is our expectation at Lowerhouse that reading books are returned daily, with children reading a minimum of three times per week.  Please encourage your child to do so and sign their reading record book to reflect this. In Blyton, we have began an exciting reward scheme where each child receives a sticker on a bookmark each time they read at home. Once the bookmark is full, the children get to keep this and will also receive a prize!

     

    Your child has also been given a Times Tables Rock Star log-in letter.  Please encourage your child to play this game, as it really does help with times table knowledge.
