Class 3EM

Friday 16th October 2020


The children have had a fantastic week!


Even though it rained during Outdoor PE, this didn't stop us from keeping fit. We exercised to Hey Macarena, Baby Shark and Cha Cha slide.


In English, we were introduced to our new text, "How to wash a woolly mammoth", creating great actions for our text mapping.


In Maths, we are having a break from number and learning about the different lines (horizontal, perpendicular, diagonal, parallel and vertical. Jenson noticed that an equal sign was parallel!


As part of Black History afternoon, we learnt all about the lovely and brave Mary Seacole, who created a hotel to help the sick and injured. The children have drawn lovely sketches, with some writing about her time as a nurse. We have finally finished our class speech inspired by Martin Luther King, please see below. 


3EM will be having a reward next Thursday, where they can bring a teddy bear and onesie/pyjamas in a carrier bag, to enjoy a movie with popcorn and lemonade. The children screamed with joy!


I am overwhelmed by the standard of work entered for the Stone-Age Competition. Remember the deadline is next Thursday!


Marvellous Mathematicians; Poppy, Renae, Matilda, Hiba, Rohan, Bradley, Lexie, Mason, Sophie and Dexter.

Super Spellers are; Renae, Hiba, Bradley and Lexie.


Congratulations to Rohan, Shola-Rose and Freddie for achieving their bands and to Rohan and Leena for being fantastic role models.


I have been impressed with my healthy warriors, in particular Freddie. He has the best snack choices; gherkins, cucumbers, tomatoes, celery sticks and carrots. Thank you for being great role models.


Also this week, the children were provided with copies of our School poem to learn. I am certain by the end of the term, they will be able to recite it word for word. 


Please take a look at some lovely photos of how hard the children have been working.


I can't believe next week is half term!


Have a lovely and safe weekend!


Mrs Mitchell :)


3EM are the best!

We love learning!

Another great week 3EM! 


This week the children revisited subtracting numbers in a column. Some children had a go with exchange, they really persevered. In English, Dexter, Shola-Rose and Poppy, blew me away with their character descriptions. Our first independent writing task (hot task) may have been a challenge but Sam, Poppy, Lilli-May and Jack did a fantastic job. 


On Thursday after the class had searched the internet to find facts about Stone-age shelters, they worked in small groups creating their own shelters. The class screamed with excitement! 


In Art, the children created stonehenges using chalk and pastels, they looked amazing!


As part of Black History Month, the children watched the first part of Martin Luther King's speech and then drew some fabulous pictures. Next week we hope to be writing a class speech of our own. 


Congratulations to Poppy, Lilli-May and Hafsa, for achieving bands this week and Kalel & Sophie for being the first two children to achieve 50 stars. 


Well done to my five times table warriors; Poppy, Sam, Rohan, Renae, Matilda, Mason and Bradley. Our first ten times table warrior is Sophie! 


Marvellous Mathematicians are Poppy, Trian, Jack, Renae, Hiba, Jenson, Matilda, Rohan, Lexie, Joey, Sophie, Sam, Dexter and Hafsa.


Super spellers are Poppy, Trian, Renae, Hiba, Mason and Sam. 


We have now added Show and Tell to our Friday timetable as children love sharing things that they are proud of.

Hello 3EM,


Another great week that has flown by.


This week the children have been introduced to playing hockey. The children were fantastic, especially Poppy-Sue and Jack. Four daily mile runs has kept the children fit, and they never forget to remind me.


We finally managed to finish our cave paintings using chalk pastels. Can you guess the animals below?


On Monday the children will have login details for laptops. Remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS, we are currently in second place to 3EG.


I am so pleased that the Super Spellers has increased from 6 to 9 and we have some children have requested to go into group 3, so well done for challenging yourselves.

Today, the children watched a short presentation about Black History Month, which takes place every year in October. To celebrate the start of the month, the children drew some pictures inspired by a famous artist called William H Johnson (1901-1970). He was an American painter who later lived and worked in France.

The children worked all afternoon on these pieces and should be proud of themselves.

Hello 3EM,


What a week we have had!

I was so impressed with your mature attitudes when we discussed safe strangers and practising lining up for when we have a fire drill.


We had a great time visiting the school library, choosing our favourite books. I was impressed with how passionate you were about reading, one of the best skills to have.


You were all great self managers, with your new pencil cases and journals. Remember to keep your login details safe for TTRS and Purple Mash.


Well done for taking on board verbal feedback, using finger spaces and basic punctuation.


Congratulations to Poppy for achieving her 2 times tables.

We had 3 band awards for Poppy-Sue, Sophie and Jenson, keep up the hard work.

I can't believe how quickly this week has gone!


In English, the children have been learning a text map about a boy called Tenko. They have created fun actions to help remember the text.
