At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A fortnightly update of all the exciting things that happen within 3M! Enjoy!


Reading Books

Every child in 3M will have a reading book and we encourage them to read with an adult at home. We will visit the library weekly and children will bring home their choice of a library book. Please ensure that their reading books and reading records are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week. Every time a child reads with an adult, they will receive a stamp on their reading chart, which will earn them certificates and book prizes.


P.E Days

3M will have PE once a week, however, the day may change. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

Class Blog 04.2.19

In English this week we looked at the poem   ‘A Portrait of a Dragon’, we then wrote our own versions using expanded noun phrases, similes and metaphors. GRT

 Once we did this, we performed our poems to the class. Some of us used musical instruments. AB We also compared different types of poems like ‘A dragon ate our school’ and ‘In the book’ by Michael Rosen.


In Maths this week, we have been using money. We added and subtracted amounts of money which is helpful especially when going shopping! LR


In History, we talked about the empty Cist at Merrivale and who may have been inside. We imagined it was a great warrior chief. As a class, we then decided what objects may have been placed with him when he was buried. Some of our ideas were: pottery, jewellery, a sword or even spear heads.
