Barnard (Mrs Yaqub Year 3)

Welcome back to school Barnard Class! What an excellent start to the school year we have had already (including winning the weekly attendance reward!!).
Monday -   PE day
                 Hand in homework
Tuesday - Maths/English homework to be given out
Friday -   Children's individual reading books will be changed. Please encourage your                 child to write a comment independently in their Reading Diaries.
Every day your child will read in class for 10 minutes to encourage 'reading for pleasure'.  In class they can read lounging on the sofa, in the wigwam or lie on the floor if they want to. Your child can bring in their own book from home if they want to but it must be labelled.
Barnard Class invites you to come into their class this Tuesday, September 25th 2:30pm, to help us celebrate our love of reading!
Share a book, magazine, comic, etc. with your child.  Feel free to bring in something you enjoy reading at home or share our wonderful range of texts we have in school. Have you a favourite story or author that you loved as a child?
We hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you so you can join in with our ERIC (Everyone Reading In Class) time!

Barnard Class will be going into Forest School tomorrow (Friday 23rd Nov)to take part in a 'Stone Age' day. They will need wellies and warm clothes.
Barnard class have thoroughly enjoyed reading a book by Emily Gravett called 'Wolves'. It had them guessing and wondering, making inferences AND finding out facts about wolves! Everyone really enjoyed the surprises in the book and produced some amazing different types of writing.
Barnard Class took a step back in time in Forest School, entering into the 'Stone Age'. They made some tools and spears with twigs so they could 'forage' for food. Mrs Dillon helped us to make a fire so we could cook our stewed fruit, just like they did in the Stone Age. We thought about the problems they would've had and how they would've overcome them. We also discovered just how hard it would be to be a 'hunter' catching animals in the wild, especially when they realised they had to be very quiet to not scare the animals!
