Monday 6th September - Friday 10th September


Well, what a fabulous first week back we have had this week! It has been lovely to have the classroom full of fun, laughter and chatter once again and the children have really enjoyed being back with their friends, which has been wonderful to see smiley Even though we have only been back a week, we have all settled in extremely well and all of the staff at VPJS are so proud of all of the children.


It has been a very busy week, we have certainly been busy bees! Not only have we been busy learning new routines, our way around school and new faces but we have also been busy with English, maths, values, PE, science and music! In English, we have been looking at writing our own adventure story based on a little clip from Mary Poppins returns. Maths has seen us recapping some of our learning from Year 2, as we have been partitioning 2 digit numbers and exploring the many different ways in which we can do this. We have also had lots of fun practising our times tables through Times Tables Rockstars and bingo. In science, we began to answer our big question "What helps us to move and grow?". We have also spent a lot of time this week talking about our school value for this half term which is respect. We discussed what it meant to us, why it is important value and the many different ways in which we can show it both in school and in the wider community. 


Enjoy having a little look at us in action, and at some of the work that we have produced smiley
