Our Classroom

Term 3- Splendid Skies!

Imagine floating high above land and sea on a bed of clouds, silently sweeping by on a billowing breeze.

Back down to earth, let's take a walk outdoors. But what should we wear? Wellington boots? A sun hat? Maybe a warm coat? How do we know what the weather will be like today?

Read and write poems and postcards... and, if you don't like today's weather report, why not write your own?

Send a message by balloon. Up, up and away it goes, high in the sky and over the rainbow. How far will the wind blow it? Where will it land and who will find it?

What weather do you prefer? Sunshine, snow, storms or showers? Get you wellingtons on - let's go!

See the curriculum newsletter for more information.

Did you know?

  • A rainbow appears when light is reflected and refracted through millions of water droplets (like rain!)
  • During the winter months, one year ends and a new begins. The days are shorter and can be very cold.
  • In the summertime, the sun rises early in the morning and sets later in the evening. The days get slightly warmer.
  • You should never look straight at the sun because it can damage your eyes.​
  • In autumn, leaves fall off the trees and hedges.​
  • A lightning flash only takes half a second. That's fast!​
  • Fog is a just a cloud that forms at ground level.
  • Although tornadoes can occur at any time of the year, most happen in the springtime.

Letter-join

Welcome to our new handwriting scheme. Handwriting is a very important element of school life, and the associated skills need to be taught carefully. We have adopted the Letter-Join strategy for handwriting across the entire school and cursive script will be taught to everyone. We would love you to encourage your children to practise using the new letter formation! Details of how to download resources are available below.

A reminder that we have joined the Purple Mash community for teaching and learning computing and digital literacy. The children all have their own logins to access the games , activites and programs on the website, and they will be able to explain to you how it all works. If they have forgotten their login, we have a record of them and will be able to provide them to you! Click the picture to go to the login page.
