Science - Rocks and Soils

The children have been investigating properties of rocks and how they are made. We recently looked at fossils and what they tell us about the past. We made our own fossils using plaster and clay.

 

 

Maths

We are well into our new class now and have worked hard looking at 3 digit numbers. We are confident using column addition.

Over the next term we will be working very hard on our times tables. It is essential the children practice these at home as it helps them disable barriers in school.

By the end of year 3 children should know their 3, 4 and 8 times tables including related division facts.

 

Try this website and choose the correct times table for them to practice.

Ancient Egyptians

The children are loving learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We have looked at the River Nile, what they wore, where it is and recently created some Egyptian sunsets using watercolours.

 

 

 

 

Cinema Trip

We are all going to the cinema on Wednesday 15th November and we are so excited. We are going to watch Captain Underpants.

 

Note About PE - November 2017

PE still takes place during the winter months so it is vital that the children have full kit. They can bring in black joggings pants to wear as part of their kit as we often go outside if the weather is dry. Some children have had pumps that are too big. Please check that they fit before sending them in as it can cause an avoidable accident on the playground.

Remember that PE is part of your child's education so they need their kit to stay in school to take part.

Thanks for your support.

Online Safety

The staff at Dallam are huge advocates of what an amazing tool the big wide web is. We are showing the children in Maple class how to use features such as email and blogging in a safe and controlled environment. However, we know that there is much more at their fingertips. Please have a read through the links below that the Maple team have put together for you. If you need any advice or to discuss matters further please see us any day at hometime.
