            Welcome to 3B

Welcome to our class page. 


We are excited for the new challenges of the year and the learning journey that is ahead of us. We will be keeping our page updated about our learning and our new topics. We appreciate your support and are happy to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have. 


Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Begum, Mrs Woodrow, Mrs Higgins smiley

Our time slot for the start of our school day is 9 - 9:10 and our time slot for the end of the day is 3:10 - 3:20.



This term we will be learning all about Bees!


Wimbledon Wednesday

The children enjoyed 'Wimbledon Wednesday' especially the traditional strawberries and cream! cheeky


In Art we have been focusing on the artist ' Vincent Van Gogh'. The children have enjoyed learning about him and they were very proud of their sunflower paintings. 





The children have worked hard in English, they wrote their own play scripts and then practised and performed their plays to the class. 

Football Friday

The children thoroughly enjoyed Football Friday, they learnt about the history of the Euros, tucked into a French breakfast of pain au chocolat, croissants and orange juice. They learnt about the history of the Eiffel Tower and created a 3D model of it. They also designed their very own football kit. The children were amazed at the football freestylers and enjoyed trying some of the tricks too!

Walk around Matchborough

As part of our Geography topic 'Our Local Area' we went for a walk around Matchborough. We discussed 'human' and 'physical' features and tried to spot these on our walk.



VE Day


Roman Army Formations - The Tortoise

British Science Week

Today we became scientists and created our own inventions and presented them to the class. Firstly, we thought of ideas of what we wanted to invent and then we chose one to design. We all had amazing ideas, including a suitcase which packs all of your clothes for you! We also carried out two experiments. The starburst experiment helped us to learn about the different types of rocks and how they are formed. We enjoyed eating a starburst at the end too! The volcano experiment was lots of fun as we were able to observe it erupt.




Home learning


We aim to get 3 pieces of homework in their home learning diary each week. This can be anything from reading a couple of pages of their book, practising times tables to attending a club. For each piece of home learning your child will receive a merit. These are counted up at the end of each half term and go towards home learning awards which your child can then use in the homework hut. 


15 merits = Bronze award 

20 merits = Silver award

25 merits = Gold award 


Your child will change their reading book once a week on a Monday and they will need to be returned to school on a Friday. Their home learning diary can be brought into school everyday.  


Please ensure your child comes to school in their full and correct P.E kit. Our P.E day is Wednesday.


The children will receive new spellings every Friday and will be tested the following Friday.

They will be attached into the children's home learning diaries.

Practising their spellings can be written in their home learning diary to gain even more merits.

If your child has lost their spellings, please don't hesitate to ask for a spare copy.

Look out for your child's login to practise their times tables at home!

Our challenge is to get everybody to at least a bronze award every half term! 

REMEMBER! if you use Bugclub and your child reads the online books write it in the home learning diary.... every merit counts! 


Children can also use letter join which is there to support children with their handwriting, again this will count as a merit in their home learning diary so please write it in.


Ukulele's must be in school every Thursday




We would like children to bring the following things with them:


  • Lunch box/bag - if not having a school dinner 
  • Drinks bottle
  • Reading book and diary on a Monday and a Friday
  • Pencil Case (if possible, please bring a pencil, sharpener, rubber, variety of pencil crayons, felt tips. ruler)  Any resources you can not provide will be provided by school. 
  • Coat


Please note, children will not be required to bring many items to school and therefore should not need a rucksack.
