Year 3 & 4 - Cairnwell

Welcome to Cairnwell! Miss Brown is our teacher and we have two lovely teaching assistants - Mrs. Green and Mrs. Crowley.  We are a fun and lively class who love learning and sharing our great ideas. Reading is very important to us as a class and we are expected to read at least 3 times a week at home - if we do we get entered into a prize draw and at the end of the half term we could win a ticket to an extra special tea party!

We have P.E on a Monday and a Thursday and really enjoy taking part in team games. Some of us are a little slow at getting ready but this is something we are trying to work on- practise super speedy changing at home! Our homework is set on a Friday and we have until Wednesday to bring it in; lots of us bring it in early and if we do we can earn House points and Dojo Points.  

Class Dojo is a big part of our class and Miss Brown likes to share lots of photo's with our parents so they can see what we are up to! At the end of each half term there is a big prize for the person who has the most points so we are always trying our hardest to earn as many points as we can. We win points for following our Offmore values.

Our Topics

Autumn 2018 - Chocolate Bonanza

Our first topic this year was Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We have learnt all about chocolate and where it originates from. We enjoyed a super trip to Cadbury's World where we explored the history of the Cadbury family. We became Scientists for a week and carried out lots of experiments and even wrote a whole new chapter for the book! To finish our topic we held a Christmas Chocolate Extravaganza! We spent the whole week designing, making and packaging our own chocolate products  and then we sold these to parents at our very own showcase - can you believe, as a phase, we raised over £300!

Spring 1 2019 -  Bright Sparks

Our topic for Spring is called Bright Sparks! We are going to learn all about electricity and are super excited to start making our own circuits. The book we are reading is called The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and we can't wait to find out what happens to the Iron Man. We have a really fun junk modelling morning planned where parents are invited into school to see who can create the best robot out of junk! 

 Spring 2 2019 - Romans on the Rampage

Currently we are studying the Romans! On the first day back after half term we received a scroll from a Roman soldier inviting us to join the Roman Army! We have been learning all about the skills needed to be a successful Roman Soldier and all of the amazing weapons and tactics they used in battle. For our homework we have been designing and making our own shields and our teachers have been amazed so far with our creations. Over the weeks we have become experts on all things Roman, and now know lots about the kind of housing, clothes and foods the Romans had. We are all really excited about our upcoming Roman Workshop Day where we will be spending a whole day with a real life Roman and will hopefully get to use our shields!
