Year 3 visit from a bilingual story teller.
Today, Year 3 had a special visitor as part of the school’s ongoing celebrations leading up to World Book Day this Thursday. Alina Constantine, a bilingual story teller, read to the children an exciting story in Romanian and English.
The children also learnt some Romanian key words and took part in freeze frame activities to show case their new learning- linked to the MFL curriculum.
As part of PSHE “Respecting Differences” the children were also given insight into aspects of Romanian life and culture.
Year 3 and 4 had the most amazing time sampling a wide range of foods connected to China. The teachers were especially impressed by all of the lovely sharing that took place (as well as children being very daring with trying new things!).
Please have a look at this short video we made to remember the event:
Today, in Oak Class, we have been finding out the French translation for what we want to be when we grow up. Can you guess what we want to be? Capitalise d’un navire, chanteur, gymnaste, agriculteur.
Beth in Oak class worked hard with Mummy to produce not one but two tin people at home. Well done for trying hard at school but at home as well.
This week Year 3 have been focusing on place value in maths. We used dienes blocks to represent different numbers. The children even showed a deeper understanding by using ten one-hundred blocks to make one thousand.
Children who have been taking part in Mr Hardee’s gymnastic club were selected to represent the school in a competition against the other schools in the learning community at TCS.
The 22 children selected from year 3 and 4 all had to learn a floor routine including forward rolls, cartwheels and challenging balances such as arabesques. Furthermore, they had to perform a vault. All children were judged and their scores go towards their team’s total score.
It was mentioned by the organisers of the competition that the children were impeccably behaved setting a super example! Mr Hardee is extremely proud of them.
We we find out the results tomorrow so look out for the blog!
