Friday 23rd April 2021
We have now completed our first week of term 5 in year 3! This year is just flying by!
A copy of the newsletter and the home learning tasks were sent home on Thursday. This week your child has been asked to keep a food diary for our science lessons. Please can these be returned by Wednesday 28th April at the latest as we will be using these in class.
We are going to start our weekly spellings again from next week, your child will be sent home with 10 spelling words to learn and these will then be tested on the following Friday.
We are also going to be doing more times table practise in class and we will also be doing weekly times table tests to try and get children ready for year 4.
Have a lovely restful weekend!
Welcome back Mulberry Class!
I hope you have enjoyed your Easter holidays.
Please see below the newsletter for this term. Home learning will also be updated in the coming days and your child will be sent home with their home learning book as well as the task sheet for this term.
PE will continue to be on a Wednesday this term. Hair should be tied back and earrings removed at home. Please come to school in PE kits with your school jumper on top to keep you warm.
Please ensure you are sending your child in with a piece of fruit or vegetable for a morning snack. An increasing number of children who are having a school dinner are not coming in with snacks and unfortunately in KS2 we do not have fruit etc to hand out.
If you have any questions or any concerns please do not hesitate to contact me on the class email firstname.lastname@example.org
FRUIT + VEG - break snack
Please ensure that you are sending your child into school with a piece of fruit or veg. Lots of children are hungry by break time and I cannot provide children with a snack from school in KS2.
Power Maths 3B book
please ensure your child brings back their power maths book for Monday 15th March please. Most children have returned books but some are still outstanding.
Friday 5th March 2021 - Information for returning to school
Mrs Fuller and I are really excited to see you all on Monday! You have all worked incredibly hard over the past 8 weeks and we are so proud of each and every one of you!
There are just a few things I want to draw your attention to in anticipation for Monday's return to school. Mr Rye has sent a letter home via ParentMail which has lots of information which you will need to be aware of before Monday, so please ensure you have a look at this please.
Arrival - unless agreed otherwise (these families are aware and if you are unsure you can contact the office to check) your child should be coming through the ball park gate at 08:55am, it is crucial that your child is not dropped off any earlier than this as the staggered start times are set to keep everyone safe.
Dismissal - Unless agreed otherwise (as previously mentioned these families are aware and if you are unsure please check with the office) you should arrive at school via the ball park gate at 3:10pm to collect your child, please ensure you do not arrive any earlier than this time - this is for everyone's safety so please adhere to these timings.
Lunches - We shall be returning to the arrangements we had in place before Christmas. Children may choose to bring a packed lunch to school or order a hot meal from the kitchen. Lunch will be eaten in the classrooms under the supervision of a midday supervisor and obviously each class bubble will also spend time outside.
The menu from Caterlink is link below and you will notice that next week will be Week 3. If your child is in KS2 and you wish them to have a hot dinner on any day, then please make sure your Caterlink account is topped up to ensure sufficient funds are available.
PE - For the remainder of this term we will be working on our fitness in PE. PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon and you need to ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit and any earrings are removed at home before coming into school. Please send your child in with their school jumper on over the top if it is a slightly cooler day.
Pencil Cases - If you would like to send your child in with their own EMPTY (nothing at all inside please!) pencil case then that is fine to do, there is no obligation to do this as all children were issued with a pencil pouch in September so they can continue to use this. The pencil case will remain in school inside your child's tray so please ensure if it is of a suitable size.
End of Term 2
Well done to all the children in Mulberry class for letting your lights shine this term, you have all amazed me with your eagerness to learn and your dedication but above all the kindness you have all shown to each other. You truly are a wonderful class and a real pleasure to teach.
Please enjoy your Christmas holiday and take a well earned break from learning. Make sure you spend time with those you care about in the safest possible way. Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all in January. Merry Christmas Mulberry Angels! 😇🎄⭐️
There will be no more spellings set before Christmas. The new set of spellings will be set on the 4th January 2021.

What have Mulberry class been learning about this week?
This week we have carried on working on our understanding of numbers up to 1000, we had a practical maths lesson outside this week where we had to order numbers between 500 and 700; this was quite a challenge but we preserved and eventually worked well as a team! This week in English we have produced some amazing letters in character as Hannah. We will be finishing our current class text Gorilla in the coming week and then we will be moving on to a new text.
We have continued practising our striking and fielding in PE this week with Mrs Barratt and we are getting better each week at controlling the ball and watching the ball. This week in History we continued our learning about the Stone Age and focussed our lesson this week on Hunter Gatherers and how our life now is so different to the tough times in the Stone Age. Aren’t we lucky that we can just pop to a shop?!
We have enjoyed lots of outdoor time this week whilst we have had super weather, most children are remembering their water bottles which is great, thank you.
Have a lovely weekend,
Thursday 10th September
Today your child was sent home with two scheme reading books or a Free Reader book out of our class book corner.
The scheme reading books need to be returned to school on Thursday the 17th September please. We will then not issue any reading books for the following week and your child can access reading material on Bug Club for the following week,
please let me know if you do not have access to Bug Club at home. This is due to books needing to be quarantined.
Children with Free Reader books may keep their book beyond the 17th of September and can bring these back into school when they have finished reading it. They will then be asked to write a book review for the class book corner.
What have Mulberry Class been learning about this week (10.09.2020)?
Mulberry class have settled back into school life really well, I’m really pleased with all the perseverance that they have shown. Well done!
This week in Maths we have been focussing on place value and numbers up to 1,000. We have been looking at how to write numbers both numerically and using words. We have been partitioning numbers into hundreds, tens and ones and have been representing these with Base Ten equipment and Place Value Counters. Please continue to use Mathletics to further your child’s understanding of what we are learning in class.
In English we have been looking at the book Gorilla by Anthony Browne. We have really enjoyed reading this book so far and are excited to find out what happens and if Hannah’s gorilla comes to life! We enjoyed doing role play this week we acted out one of the scenes from the book when Hannah was having breakfast with her Dad.
