Year 3/4 Grace
Hello and welcome to Year 3/4 class page! My name is Mrs Clinch and I am the Year 3/4 class teacher for this year! We are extremely lucky to have Miss Evans in our class with us as our teaching assistant!
We are both really looking forward to welcoming your children into our classroom and getting to know them all throughout the exciting year we have ahead of us!
Throughout this page, we will keep you updated on everything we get up to in class and what our expectations are for the year ahead!
If you ever have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to send in a note or pop in and see me at any time!
Homework will be given on Fridays and marked every Wednesday.
Children should read every night (even if it is one page) and are able to change their books once completed. Parents must ensure that they sign their child's reading record book every time they read.
Spelling tests will be done every Wednesday.
PE lessons are on Friday afternoon as well as swimming on Wednesday afternoon for Year4 s.
Happy New Year
All the children came back to school happy and refreshed and ready for another great term.
This week we have started our new topic - What was life like in the stone age? The children are really engaged and have asked lots of interesting questions about the topic. We began learning about stone age art work so keep a look out on here for our work over the next few weeks.
This week we have been talking about Advent and what it means to us. We have been discussing the significance of the Advent wreath. We looked at different paintings of Advent wreaths and then we used pastels to create our own representations. Here are a few of our completed pieces of work.
This week our class were lucky enough to be trained by a coach from Manchester United. The theme for the afternoon was fair play. We had a great afternoon and had lots of fun. We all received a certificate for playing fair.
Well done Yr 3/4.
This week we have been continuing to work on our pop-up books. We have been making prototypes of different types of pop-ups. In a couple of weeks we will be working in groups to complete the books and share them with other classes. Watch this space for our completed work.
History trip-St Leonard's church
On Tuesday we visited St Leonard's church to start off our local history unit of work. We walked to the church and on the way we saw the Methodist church designed by Edgar wood. We also saw the Old Boar's Head pub and a memorial to those who lost their lives in the flood in Middleton.
When we arrived at the church we listened to a talk about the history of the church and then we did brass rubbings and a treasure hunt in the church.
We were very lucky to hold a sword which was 600 years old and we even saw some bones under the floorboards.
On the way back we saw a plaque commemorating the Peterloo Massacre and saw the 24 steps which Lowry painted.
We all really enjoyed the trip and are inspired to find out more about the history of Middleton.
