Here are some activities that can be done during the half-term if you want to.
Over half term the Friends of Watercliffe Team are running a Halloween Craft Competition.
Here are the details and a poster about it.
Let’s get crafty….Together as a family, draw a Halloween picture, paint or carve a pumpkin. You can enter as many times you like, there is no limit. Send us your pictures to either firstname.lastname@example.org or via Facebook messenger. The closing date is Monday 2nd November. Judging will be done by the WCM judging panel of Friday 6th November. Please note that this competition is open to families. Good luck.
This week, Y3 have been working with an artist to create mosaics. The children drew flying rainbows which they then mosaiced over.
The children had lots of fun working with Coralie, the artist, and learned some new skills.
This week in Y3, we have been creating designs for our Togetherness Week mosaic that we will be completing in the final week of half term.
We each created our own version of a flying rainbow and we will use them altogether to go over the entrance of school. We can’t wait for them to be up!
Here is the letter giving you the details about how we are going to run parents evening this term.
In science this week we have been looking and learning about fossils. We learnt about how they are formed and what we can learn from them. We even managed to make some of our own using clay! Can you explain to someone at home how fossils are made?
Today, we have watched an online assembly all about anti-bullying. If you would like to watch it, follow the link on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0_1Z0CAZiE&t=290s or search for The Big Anti-Bullying Assembly 2020.
We have then written the people that we feel safe to talk to about our fears onto an outline of our hand. We have also thought about how we would act in a range of different scenarios.
This week Y3 have been on a wonderful visit to Creswell Crags! Despite the wet weather, the children enjoyed learning all about the Stone Age.
The children spent time looking around caves, following animal tracks, putting skeletons back together and finding caves in the rock face.
This week in Y3, we have been looking at column addition. To help us understand the concept better, we have been drawing place value grids on our tables and using place value counters. We found this really fun!
Rihanna is 8 today, hooray!!
We all hope you have a brilliant day,
Love Mr Boynton, Mrs Bates and Mr Baines x
