3 Mrs Turner
It's come to the end of our year together...
It has been quite like any other year I have ever known. Sometimes we were all in the classroom learning together and then there were times when we had to learn from home and only "see" each other on Googlemeet.
Well done to each and everyone of you for remaining cheerful and trying your hardest regardless of where we were. I'm proud of your achievements and the progress you have made.
Sadly Sophia will be moving to a different school so we all wish her the very best and hope she makes lots of new friends. Also Mrs Bota is moving to a new school. We will miss both of you. To the rest of Penguin Class, I hope you have a lovely summer and find lots of ways to have fun. Please stop and tell me your news when you see me around school, even if you are big Year 4s!
It's been a fun year and thank you for your presents and cards.
Have a great summer
From Mrs Turner.

Eye Spy poem by Tommy
Eye spy my dad's car parked on the drive.
Eye spy the yellow house over the road.
Eye spy the black bin ready for the dustmen.
Eye spy the white cloudy sky.
Eye spy cars rushing past.
Eye spy people walking a dog.
Eye spy my reflection in the window.
Eye spy the trees blowing in the wind.
Eye spy the cracked ground.
Eye spy my dad's black wheelbarrow.
Eye spy red chimneys.
Eye spy my mum's grey car.
Eye spy birds sitting on the rooftop.
Eye spy me looking out of the window.
We decorated doors to give school a more Christmassy feel

Maths - using the mastery approach.
It is really important that the children understand what is happening to the numbers in their lessons. Before they writ in their books they use resources to see what is happening. Not only is it fun but it helps to keep the learning in their long term memory.
We have spent time looking at place value and how the position of a digit gives it its value.
The children have also been grouping amounts into equal groups. Division is probably the hardest mathematical operation to understand and the children have been working hard.

Ancient Egyptian rulers wore lots of jewellery including collars. They were made from gold and precious stones.

History - looking at the Ancient Egyptians
In our history topic we have been finding out about the Ancient Egyptians. We've looked into their beliefs and how their rulers (pharaohs) bodies were mummified to preserve them for their next lives. It was all pretty gruesome, especially removing their organs and brain!
We've learnt how important the River Nile was to them. Not only was it important for washing and drinking but also for moving goods through Egypt and essential for growing crops.
There were lots of opportunities for us to make things and we had a go at drawing people like the Ancient Egyptians did. It was a fun topic.
