PE

This year we will have outdoor PE on a Tuesday afternoon and indoor PE on a Thursday morning. It is important that children have the appropriate PE kit in school on these days, to ensure that they can take part. 

Outdoor PE

Children need a tracksuit, a pair of trainers, a jumper and maybe even a light waterproof jacket.

Indoor PE

Children need their yellow t-shirts, blue shorts and a pair of black pumps.

Earrings should not be worn for PE.

 

Homework

In year 3, children will receive weekly Maths and Literacy homework. This is given out on a Friday and is expected to be handed in the following Wednesday. The homework is aimed to build upon what we have learned that particular week. 

 

Here are a few of the pictures from our Viking day! We had a fantastic time learning so many interesting facts about the Vikings
Year 3 and 4 have been set a challenge!
We are currently completing the Team AkOBE Marathon Challenge. By the end of our challenge we will have completed 85.2 miles! We have already achieved our first individual medals and will soon have our second 3 mile medal. Maybe you could join us and run, walk or jog a mile with us :)

In science we are learning about forces and magnets. So far we have learnt about and investigated pushes, pulls and friction. 
 
In topic we are learning about Rio de Janeiro, The French Alps and The North East of England. We will be comparing these places and finding out lots about what it's like there. 
Here are some pictures of our classroom door, ready for the Roald Dahl Door competition!!
