This week, Year 4 had their first swimming lesson! Aqueelah and Cleopatra had lots of fun and wanted to let us know all about it.
I was so excited to go on the coach. Year 4 has finally gotten an experience to swim! When we arrived we were in a hurry so when we finished getting changed, we went to the pool. Some of us were scared and some of us where exited. Firstly the asked us who could swim. 4 or 3 girl’s said they can swim. My heart was pounding. My friend Julia in lavender class was more scared than I was. When it was my turn I felt my ear’s filling with water, kicking my legs to swim. But in the end it was fun, at the end of swimming we were in groups 1,2 and 3. group 1 – non swimers group 2 – semi swimers group 3 – swimer’s – Aqueelah N.

Year 3 have been learning about angles and lines. They had lots of fun programming the BeeBots to travel. They were great at using directional vocabulary and even used Geographical terminology too!
This week, Year 3 have been learning about bullying as part of Anti-bullying Week 2017. Here’s a little video reminder from them.
Remember: All different, All equal.
Last Half Term, Year 3 were learning about the Stone Age to the Iron Age.
For their Half Term homework, they were asked to design and create something symbolic from one of these periods. The children worked very hard and here is what they made.
We make the huts roof with straw and make it like a pyramid and make the house with sticks and make it very very straight. If you want to make an axe, you have to get a very very long stick and after get the head of the axe and get some string to stick the head on to the very very long stick and it will attach together and it will stick. To make Stonehenge, you have to get some clay and make it into a rectangle and put it in a big hot oven and the clay will dry and get very very hard and if you drop it it will break into little pieces of tiny crumbs and you can’t fix it back together again because it will break very badly and we have to put it in the bin.
I was learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. In Stone Age there are three parts but if you want to be posh you can call it Palaeolithic. It is the first part and the second one is Mesolithic and the last one is Neolithic. In the trip they said they are hunter-gatherer. In Palaeolithic are cavemen and hunter-gatherer. In Mesolithic are 50% hunter-gatherer and in Neolithic are 100% farmer.
This week, Jade class really enjoyed their Health and Fitness lesson with Owen!
We were learning about foot-eye co-ordination. Last week we learnt about hand-eye co-ordination. This will help us play football. – Ryan
It’s really fun trying to kick the ball high. – Manvir
This week, Year 3 used games as a way to practise their addition skills. It was very fun!
We had to match numbers to add numbers together and find the number off the sheet. It went good because it was kind of hard at first but then it got kind of easy. I think the whole class enjoyed the lesson! – Shannen D’Silva
The games were very very fun and it was a nice game. I liked it because it wasn’t boring and we got to play more different games. I want to do different games next time! – Asif Miah
