Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading.


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.

In English this week, we have been writing diary entries as The Stone Age boy. We talked about his journey, meeting his strange new friend and how surprised how busy her family were!

In Science this week, we have been looking at the job of a palaeontologist. This is a person who studies fossils. We enjoyed hunting for fossils in trays of sand.

To remember the 3 different types of rock and explain which was sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous, we layered white and dark chocolate on cling film that was in a plastic cup. We pressed it flat so the layers were compressed. RF

After that, we took out the cling film and moulded the chocolate with our hands. The heat from our hands changed the shape and made it change shape. This showed metamorphic rock. AB

Mrs Merritt, then dipped the chocolate which was still in the cling film into hot water. We were surprised to see the chocolate melt so quickly! When it cooled it retuned to a hard piece of chocolate – Igneous. We had so much fun! CTS

Maths has been challenging this week, adding and subtracting using the column method to solve maths problems. It’s a lot easier when you put the hundreds, tens and ones in the same column. KJ
