Year 3 will be swimming on Tuesday mornings after half term.
Please make sure all children have swimming kits and towels.
I believe girls need a one piece bathing costume and boys need non baggy swimming trunks ( so no board shorts). No earrings or other jewellery please.
We will be leaving as soon as possible after 9 am.
I’m looking forward to taking all the year 3’s. I’m sure we’ll have a great time.

Branching data base. Can you sort the sweets by asking questions to separate the groups out? Practicing the skills scientists use to classify living things.
The best insulator experiment. We found out the best insulator and thought about how it insulated effectively.
Our PE days for the next half term are Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child has a full PE kit including suitable footwear for inside or outside and something warm to wear when it’s outdoor PE. Thank you.
Dividing 2 digit numbers by 1 digit. Tricky work but we’re getting there.
Don’t forget there are new challenges on Sumdog every week.
Homework bingo is is now available in the classroom, with 9 different activities for the children to engage in with your support. We hope you enjoy finding out about about the Polar Regions. Hopefully there is something of interest for everyone.
Through the portal
We had a real adventure going through a portal into an alternative world at school today. When did English lessons get such fun?
Happy New Year and Welcome back .
We hope you all had a great holiday and are refreshed and rejuvenated. This term we will be learning all about the Polar Regions. We are looking forward to our trip, skating with the Nottingham Panthers.
This half term we are learning how to write a portal story. We're looking forward to crafting some great stories with some amazing descriptions. More updates as we go along.
We had a busy afternoon writing a letter to Father Christmas...in French, making some Christmas decorations and making our own catapults using lolly sticks and elastic bands. We finished off the afternoon with a competition to see if anyone could fire a pom pom into cups on the table.
Busy afternoon at St Peter’s.
Some people need danger money 😜
Trickier than we thought!
A few more pictures of the amazing mosaics that were made today.
Class 6, 7 and 8 have had an exciting afternoon creating their mosaics with families. Class 8 had planned their mosaics using a computer program. They then carried out their design using clay and beads and sequins. I think the adults had more fun than the children. Thank you all for your support and coming to participate in the children’s learning.
Somebody liked the look of a centurion helmet. Honestly, you turn your back for 1 minute and this is what happens.
On Monday we had our own Remembrance Service. Every child in the school made and placed a poppy to commererate 100 years since the end of WW1
SAVE THE MANSFIELD RIDGEBACK
Some of our dragon eye clay models.
This half term we are learning to write a non chronological report about the Mansfield Ridge-back. Here we are practicing.
Welcome back after half term.
What at an exciting time this is! Lots of pieces of homework are coming in fast and furiously.
In in the words of Craig Revell- Horwood - A- ma- zing.
Roaming Romans homework
More Mansfield museum pics
Well, that was a full day at Mansfield museum. What a great day we had right on our own doorstep! We saw so many different things that were relevant to our local history as well as enjoying looking at and holding Roman artefacts. I’m not sure if our favourite part of the day was going on a treasure hunt, trying on helmets and Roman costumes, putting on an assortment of gear at lunch time or being allowed to walk around the exhibits on our own. I know a lot of people loved the old telephone and the telephone box ! I hope the children have enjoyed their day out. I know all the adults did. Special thanks to those parents who came and supported us and offered support if needed.
Roman Day at Mansfield museum.

Welcome to Class 8.
We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back on Thursday 6th September. Remember that as of Monday, you will be able to have breakfast in your classroom, so make sure you are there in plenty of time!
Our topic this term will be Romans! There will be a topic based homework coming very soon and this will lead to a chance to show off what you have learned at the end of the half term so watch this space.
While we do our very best to keep PE on the same day, there will sometimes have to be changes at last minute so please make sure you bring your PE kit in on a Monday and leave it in school all week.
Lower Key Stage 2 hope to have reading books to send home by the end of the first full week at school and we ask that you read at least four times a week at home and record that you have done so in your reading record.
If there are any parents or carers that would like to come in and hear the children read or help them to learn any other skills then they would be more than welcome. Please see the class teacher if you think you can help out.
Last of all, the Lower Key Stage 2 team are very excited about welcoming you all back to St. Peter's. We will do our very best to make sure the year is the best it can be for everyone. If you have any concerns or questions please come and find us before or after school.
We look forward to an exciting year,
Miss Webb, Mr Blythe and Mrs Eady
