Year 3/4

As part of our Science topic, Where do rocks come from?  The children in year 3 & 4 have been learning about the Rock Cycle. They know that there are three main types of rocks and understand what they are used for. The children had a lot of fun creating Sedimentary, Metamorphic and Igneous rocks from starburst. They were able to describe the process of the rock cycle to their friend. Take a look at some of our photographs below!

Shine like a star

The shine like a star focus for this week was to be independent. We have seen lots of children trying their best to be independent this week, especially as it has been assessment week. The younger children have also been trying hard to fasten their own zips too!

Times Tables Rock Stars

Practising times tables is so important in improving maths and is a huge part of number work from Y2 upwards. Please encourage your child to use their account to get as fast as they can which will help them be able to apply their knowledge to different areas of maths.

Congratulations to the highest coin collectors this week!

If any member of your household has symptoms of COVID-19, everybody in your household must self-isolate. You should then arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19. You must then inform the academy of the result, even if it is negative.

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
