3GB 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 3GB's class page!
Hello, my name is Mrs Bloor and I teach one of the Year 3 classes. I have been teaching at Offley since 2008 and have taught in most year groups. I am married and have two boys who are at the other end of the education system! James is about to start his final year at University and Henry has just started his final year in Sixth Form. I also have a tortoise who is in her 90's and a Cavapoo called Lulu who I love taking for long walks.
Well done everyone for a great Sports Day on Wednesday, all of the children showed great determination and resilience in wanting to finish their races.
Many thanks for your kind donations to Lucas' fund for a running track at school. The children looked great wearing red and blue which were Lucas' favourite colours.
In English this week, the children have found the features of explanation texts and worked on using possesive apostrophes for singular and plural nouns. When we come back after the holidays, the children will plan their innovation text on the water cycle by closely following the original text.
In Maths this week, the children have continued with their learning about fractions. After half term, they will start a new maths topic 'angles', learning hos to recognise obtuse, acute and right angles in shapes and capital letters. I have set the children some questions on angles on the prodigygame.com maths website.
In the afternoons this week, the children had a special guest Mr Higgins, a retired Headteacher, to talk to the children about the history of Sandbach. The children were fascinated to learn about the origins of the name 'Sandbach' and how it has chanegd over time. They also discovered that the original St Mary's church was originally built from sandstone. When it started to crumble and erode, it was rebuilt using millstone grit mined from Mow Cop! Mr Higgins also gave them other nuggets of information, ask your child to see what they can remember.
In French this week, the children have learnt how to say and write classroom objects (la gomme, le crayon, le stylo, le bureau, la règle, le sac à dos, la salle de classe, les cours, la leçon, les casiers). They have also learnt some basic positional language to describe where the object is (sur, sous, dans, devant, à côté de, derrière). From this, they were then able to ask where an object is and answer their question. For example Où est le crayon? Le crayon est sur le bureau.
When we come back after half term, we will continue with building our French vocabulary and speaking and listening skills as we continue to complete our daily register and lunch menu in French. We will also start our new Science topic magnets and continue our local history project about Sandbach. We will be going out into the town to look at the different buildings to see if we can find any similarities that give clues as to the architects that designed them. A date hasn't been set yet, but we will need parent voluteers to help look after the children on our walk.
