Dear parents/carers,

As we can’t send Christmas cards this year, Mrs. Maqbool and I have decided to write a class news post instead!

We want to thank you for all the support you have shown both your children and us over the last term – it is massively appreciated and the children have done extremely well! We are so proud of them.

Thank you as well for all the lovely gifts that you have bought us! It’s so kind and thoughtful and we are extremely grateful! We have both decided to open our gifts on Christmas Day – we can’t wait! Thank you again!

We hope you all have a lovely, well earned, Christmas break and enjoy seeing off what has been a trickier year!

Thanks again for all the support you give all the time – see you in 2021!

Mr. Wain and Mrs. Maqbool

A Christmas Visit from Y3!

Posted on Tuesday 15 December 2020 by Mr Wain

Last week, in Y3, we prepared a couple of christmassy things for parents and carers to enjoy!

Our first christmassy video shows Y3 reading a famous poem: A visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore.

After we had performed this, we enjoyed singing along to our favourite carol as voted for by the class – Jingle Bells.

Click on the links above and enjoy!

 

Muffling Sound!

Posted on Monday 14 December 2020 by Mr Wain

In our science lessons this half term, we have been learning all about sound.

Last week, we learnt about how sound travels in waves and that it has to travel through a medium to reach our ears.

Most recently, we have been learning about which materials muffle (make quieter) sound the best – these are called sound insulators.

Here are some pictures of us muffling the sound of a buzzer using different materials such as foil, cloth and a plastic box.

After we had observed what happened when we muffled the buzzer with the different materials, we measured the number of decibels the buzzer produced before and after we muffled it.

We recorded these using the Numbers app and then made our own bar charts to show the data.

Ask your child if they can remember which material was the best sound insulator and why!

As an added challenge for your child, see if they can remember what medium and sound source mean!

Living and Learning

Posted on Saturday 12 December 2020 by Mr Wain

During the last 3 weeks of term, in our Living and Learning sessions, we have been learning about relationships.

Recently, in Y3, we talked about the different relationships we have with our family and friends. We also discussed the stages of life that our family and ourselves are at, ranging from babies, children, teenagers, adults to elders.

Here are some pictures of the Y3s drawing the people in their family and labelling what stage of life they are in.

Santa dash Friday 11 December

Posted on Wednesday 09 December 2020 by Mrs Taylor

Leeds North East Schools Sport Partnership is delighted to be supporting the School Games National Santa Dash 2020 on Friday 11 December and we are excited to be taking part.
During the school day, each class will have a time when they can run, walk, skip, hop around the school grounds to get active.
Children can wear their PE kit and are encouraged to add some festive cheer by bringing a santa/elf hat, some tinsel, antlers or painting their nose red. These should be brought to school and worn for the Santa Dash only.
There is no monetary contribution needed for this event.

School menu change and Christmas meal

Posted on Sunday 29 November 2020 by Mrs Taylor

We really appreciate your patience regarding school dinners and the choices we have been able to provide.  We’ve been very conscious that changes needed to be made and a hot dinner offered wherever possible.  Over the next few weeks, we’re going to trial a menu on a two week rota and if this is successful, then it will be carried on after the school holiday and reviewed again.
There are two options each day, a vegetarian and a meat option but there is one day a week which is ‘meat free’.
We’re not in a position to resume ‘normal dinners’ but this is a step in the right direction. Click here to see the new menu and we encourage you to discuss and share the options with your children.
We are also able to offer a Christmas dinner option on Thursday 10th December. Please inform the office if your child would like a school meal on this day.

Virtual after-school sport club

Posted on Wednesday 25 November 2020 by Mrs Taylor

We know you are missing attending after-school clubs at the moment, whether it is in school or out of school, so here is some information about a virtual after-school club that can be done at home.

The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network. These will run until 18 December.

 

Aimed mainly at primary-aged children, a different theme has been assigned for each day of the club – Adventure Monday, Tuesday Play, Wild Wednesday, Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday.
