Year 3 have started to investigate the process of multiplication this week, starting with doubling numbers. I was super impressed with the way the children developed their understanding and grappled with bigger numbers!
Over the past two weeks, teams from years 3&4 and 5&6 have ventured to Campsmount to take part in Leger Sport basketball competitions. As always, the events were well organised and highly competitive with our children representing the school proudly. Whilst both teams achieved third, their team spirit, resilience (against incredibly tall opponents) and togetherness was inspiring. Well done to both teams!
Y3 have loved integrating Sumdog into our crew routines this half term. Since discovering you can win coins like on TTRS we have become quite competitive.
Check out these amazing spellers who equaled or improved on their previous weeks score! Clearly a lot of hard work has gone into practicing spellings this week and you should be extremely proud! Keep up the hard work! 😊
Our ’Flexible Friday’ crew session this week saw us completing a range of Pudsey Bear themed activities to raise awareness for Children In Need. Children were invited to come to school in non-uniform and donations were collected. It was a great effort across school with money raised for a very worthy cause!
On Remembrance Day, LKS2 spent the day making some these beautiful remembrance day cards which included a watercolour poppy and an acrostic poem. These works of art were taken to Campsall Church and given to members of the community who attended the Remembrance service.
This week the children in year 3 were excited to take part in the launch of our Chance to Dance lessons. Our focus ballet this year is The Nutcracker. To start, the children were introduced to the main characters from the ballet and created motifs to show their personality and how they might move. It was lovely to see how all children embraced this new genre of dance and the effort they put in to perfecting their performances.
Over the past few weeks, year 3 have immersed themselves in all things subtraction. We are now experts at using the number line to correctly take away and today we worked together to answer a range of different problems, supporting our peers where necessary. This is the true definition if crew! Well done 3HJ 😊
What a frightening start to the half term we had with this lot of scary folk. 3HJ had a wonderful day completing a whole host of spooky activities from writing to creating their own death masks. Enjoy trick or treating! 🎃👻💀
