Jellyfish (Year 3) 2017 - 2018
Welcome to Jellyfish Class
We're coming towards the end of term 4 and the Easter holidays. We have packed a lot into this term. We have been learning about balances in gymnastics (see our photo gallery) and we have had another two sessions of Forest School - den building, rubbish clearning and animal tracking (see photo gallery). In respect of the rubbish clearing, the children were shocked at just how much rubbish was in the forest area and we have talked about what we can do about this and how we can educate people to take their rubbish home and not dump it in the countryside.
Welcome back! We start Forest School this term so please ensure that your child wears appropriate warm and waterproof clothing and footwear every Monday.
Our Term 3 newsletter and learning journey are available to look at and detail what we will be doing this term.
We've made a good start to our topic 'Out of this World' and next week we will be taking part in the the Key Stage 2 Space Day. We have a planetarium coming to the school and will be taking part in space-themed activities all day.
In PE we are learning more gymnastic skills - photos to follow.

It was lovely to meet some of you last night at parents' evening and I look forward to meeting some more of you this evening! If you haven't booked an appointment yet, I still have slots available for this evening. You can book them by going on to the 'parents area' and clicking on 'parents evening'. If you have any problems with logging in or booking the appointment, please contact the school office and they will be able to help you.
Did you come to our Remembrance Day assembly? If not, you won't have had the opportunity to see our fantastic artwork. Go to our photo gallery and have a look at the process and the finished artwork.

What a busy week we've had in the Jellyfish class this week. Have a look at our photo gallery and see what we've been up to.
Welcome to term 2!
We have a busy term ahead and our learning journey and newsletter are available on this page for you to read.
As the weather is getting colder and we are playing tag rugby outside this term, it would be great if you could provide your child with a pair of tracksuit trousers, a warm hoodie or sweatshirt and a spare pair of socks.
We are off to Fort Burgoyne this term as part of our topic 'All About Us' and the class will be split into two groups and will visit on 1 December and 15 December. It is essential that your child wears suitable shoes and a warm coat for this trip.
On Friday (29th September) we learnt about the Hindu festival of Dashain. We made Happy Dashain cards to give to our family or friends. We also made kites decorated with traditional Nepalese designs and then flew the kites on the playground. The kites are displayed in the school hall, so have a look next time you are at Celebration Assembly. There are also photos of our day in the whole school gallery.
Next week we will be visiting Dover Castle again. This time we have the opportunity to visit the Secret Wartime Tunnels, which should be a lot of fun. We'll take lots of photos, so keep an eye on our class gallery to see what we got up to.
If you haven't yet had the opportunity, please have a look at our gallery of photos from our last trip to the Castle. You will note that we didn't need to wear out coats......I think coats will be the order of the day this time!
We are having a Science Day next week in the Jellyfish class. We will be taking on the role of personal trainers. Each group will have a 'client' and will decide what their 'client' needs to do stay healthy through diet and exercise!
I hope that you all had a fantastic summer break! I'm sure that you will have lots to share with the class about your 6 weeks off and I'm looking forward to hearing all about it.
This term we will be finding out 'All About Us'. We will be going out and about in the local area and finding out as much as we can about this locality. Please have a look at the pictures in our class gallery of local sights. There are also some questions for your to think about.
I've started a discussion on our pupil page about what it's like to live in Dover. Please join the discussion.
