Amber Valley Gymnastics Academy

On Friday, 15 of our children took part in a fantastic  Gymnastics Festival! The event was hosted by Amber Valley School Sports Partnership and involved having professional coaching by Amber Valley Gymnastics Academy on seven different pieces of gymnastics equipment including; trampolines, balance beams and the parallel bars. The children all showed great resilience and determination to have a go and never give up, even when the techniques were quite difficult.

Well done to everyone for representing our school so well and we look forward to attending more events like these!

Magic Maths!

We've had a fab week in Y3 using our Numicon and Cuisenaire to investigate number bonds. We have shared ideas, learned new facts and produced our own posters to demonstrate our knowledge. 

Keep up the good work, everyone!

Thank you for all the support you have shown me and your child over the past two weeks.  The engagement with the homework planners has been encouraging to see too.  Next week, I will hand out our spelling lists and number Bonds cards. 

Below, I have attached the spelling lists and a link to some games and activities that will help to support your child whilst they learn their spellings.  Please note that your child's first spelling test will be on Monday 23rd September.

On Monday, your child will receive a set of cards to help them learn their number bonds.  Stay tuned for a video showing you how to use the cards.  In the meantime, here is a link to 'Hit the Button'.  Your child has played 'Hit the Button' in class and we have found this a fun and engaging way to learn number bonds.

Hit The Button

On a final note, your child should have been set a reading task.  This will be due back at school on Friday.  If you have any queries regarding homework or the homework planner, please don't hesitate to contact me at school.  

Kind regards, Mr Gordon.
