So it’s the last week for this class before they head on to the juniors. I know that their futures will be bright and they will go on to have some amazing adventures! This class have been superb! It’s been great to work with a group of children that have such brilliant talents and senses of humour. Mrs Czarnopis and I have loved getting to know your children. We will certainly miss seeing them everyday.
I would like to say a massive thank you for being so welcoming this year. You have all been very supportive, making my first year as a teacher at UPS one I will always cherish. ❤
We are all ready to enjoy the excitement that the last week of school brings. Tonight is Urmstons Got Talent. We are looking forward seeing such a super performance that the children have worked so hard on.
On Wednesday we had another busy day! The children went into the garden to pick some different vegetables.
The children have also been making slime! What messy fun! 😂
Please remember that the children need Violins on Tuesday.
The children blew us away once again on Monday night during their Urmston’s Got Talent performances! It was incredible to see such a range of skills. Well done guys you were AMAZING! The final song just reminded us of the fantastic bright futures tat you have ahead of you. Very emotional!
I’m sure that’s you have all heard what a fantastic trip on Wednesday to Red House Farm. We had a super time.
The children performed amazingly well in the violin convert on Tuesday. Well done you are all superstars!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I know a lot of you watched the match! What a great result. Fingers crossed for Wednesday!
Today a letter has been send home to say that the children won’t receive any more reading books or homework. Please can you make sure that all books including the shared reading books are sent back. Thank you!
In PE the children were measuring how far they could jump in teams! Well done to Ethan was able to jump 30.5cm to be our class winner and he won a very special sports prize!
The children were very excited to meet their new teacher ready for year 3! It was great hearing all about their shuffle up afternoon!
Here are class 3 rehearsing for our concert on Tuesday! We are all very excited to see the final performance and the children are excited to show you what they can do!
The children finally could finish their mud huts this week! They decorated their mud hut roof with sticks and straws.
It was lovely getting into the garden this week. The children were able to water the plants and explore, finding the plants that they had planted themselves.
For our ERIC (Everyone Reads In Class) this week we went outside to enjoy the nice weather. Mrs Wormald’s corner was perfect. The children enjoyed sitting in the shade in this new fantastic area. This is one of Class 3’s favourite times of the week. It’s great for them to share books with friends and get an opportunity to just sit and read and enjoy a book.
Happy Monday! What glorious weather we are having!
Today Mrs Byrne brought in her chickens to see us! They were the chicks that we watched hatch a few months ago. It was incredible to see how the chicks had developed. They have now been names ‘Sassy Pants’ and ‘Sleepy Head.’ The children even got to feed them grapes which they thought was really funny as the grapes squirted juice. As well as this, Mrs Byrne brought in the eggs that they have been laying with an egg bought from a shop. It was really interesting to see how different they looked. the children noticed that the shop bought egg was bigger because Mrs Byrne’s chickens weren’t old enough yet to produce larger eggs.
It’s been great to have another PE lesson in the sun today. Just to remind you, please can you make sure that PE kits are in school Mondays and Thursdays. Thank you.
On Friday we painted our mud hut roofs and paper straws to act as sticks and straw. The children are looking forward to putting together the whole creation next week!
Here are some photos of the children participating in some tricky maths challenges:
In PE on Thursday, the children did yoga. They had lots of different African animal poses to do which was great fun.
We have been practicing an African song that Mrs Saint has taught us. The children are getting really good at the call and response meaning different children can be chosen to lead the class.
Sports Day was a huge success. Even though I wasn’t there, I heard great things about it. Everyone said how sensible and enthusiastic the children were. Thank you to everyone who came and showed their support!
On Tuesday the children enjoyed another violin lesson. This week Charlie B was given a very important role and was chosen to lead the class. It is amazing to see how well the children are doing. They have improved so much over such a short space of time.
This morning Mrs Czarnopis and I received some delicious cupcakes from Noa, Vivienne and Georgia! Thank you very much ladies! 🙂
We had some super Show and tells this morning. Xavier brought a shark tooth necklace whilst Aadi showed us his fantastic collection of Star Wars ships! As well as this Jack B brought in a Sports trophie which he was extremely proud of! Great job boys!
For Pe the children have been perfecting their egg and spoon race techniques ready for Sports day!
Today we said goodbye to Miss Woolland. She has been amazing and we will miss her so much! To give her a good send off we had a party!
We made our mud huts based on the children’s designs! They’re ready to put the roofs on next week.
Bit of a jumbled up week this week with violins being on Thursday. We had a different teacher called Mr Harding. The children practiced good posture whilst doing their super singing getting ready for the upcoming concerts. Mr Harding chose some detectives to help him look for super elastic band mouths, great posture and fantastic us of violins.
For maths we have been looking at division again! Even though the children found this super tricky, the didn’t give up! They showed great resilience until they could do some really difficult challenges!
This week is Miss Woolland’s last week! The children have loved being taught by her and she will certainly be missed. We are going to make the most of our last week together with some fun activities!
The children have been practice their sprinting techniques in PE today!

Well done Matilda who won our Star of the Week for trying really hard with her writing.
This week the children have been looking closely at the traditional tale Goldilocks and the three bears. They have written a letter of apology from Goldilocks, written character descriptions and written a book review. The children did some hot seating of the characters asking them some important questions that they were eager to know.
On Monday the children had some shape to sort and discuss. They were describing them to their partners and recalling the shape names and properties.
Well done to Ethan for doing some super writing this week and becoming our Star of the Week! The children were writing adverts for year 1’s telling them all about year 2! The work was really impressive! Here are some of the children reading out their work:

After they had written their questions the children took on roles of the royal couple and interviewers. We had such a laugh thinking about what the royal couple would say! I must say a special mention to Marisa for her professional take on being a news reporter as well as Charlie B and Ruby’s hilarious versions of the royal couple! 😂
The children have loved another Violin lesson today practicing singing ‘I wanna be like you’ and ‘Aint no mountain high enough.’
The children are starting to get really excited about the concert. The songs that they’re learning are really coming along now. We definitely have super musical talent in our midst. 🎼🎤🎤
Another busy week ahead! For the past few weeks the children have had extra little challenges to help them earn stickers for their prize charts. They have had to remember to hand in homework on the correct days and they are now being challenged to take more responsibility for their own things by remembering to empty their own book bags and get their jumpers/cardigans at home time. This is proving to be a lot more difficult than it sounds! 😂
On Monday the children had another amazing Premier Sports lesson using THE PARACUTE! Very exciting stuff!
We’ve had our first wearers of our very fancy ‘Ask Me’ sashes! If a child finishes their work and has really understood it, then they get to wear the sash and answer questions from their table. Well done your first Fab Four! ⭐⭐⭐
The children really have been fantastic this week! They have faced their special jobs head on and coped so well! Keep it up! 🙂
