Y3 to Y4 Transition Days

posted 6 Jul 2018, 08:52 by J Janiszewski   [ updated 6 Jul 2018, 09:00 ]

The Y3s have been hard at work, impressing their new Y4 teachers with their great attitudes to learning.  Children across the school have spent three days of transition getting used to their new classrooms and routines.  Mrs Shaw, Miss Laycock and Mr Janiszewski have all been impressed with the exceptional attitudes of the children and are as excited as the children for Y4 to begin fully in September.

A big welcome to all of our new smiling faces! We have had a wonderful start to our new school year and we are enjoying getting to know each other and our new school.
As you may know, our Topic this term is 'Scrumdiddlyumptious' where we learn all about lots of yummy food! We are reading 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and we have enjoyed our fortnightly PE sessions. 

So far, we have given your children a reading level and an initial reading book. Please note, children are to read these books - with you, or alone - and quiz on them before choosing a new book. We strive to quiz as often as we can and children will be tested on their comprehension of the story. We give spellings out each week from your child's English teacher and children should be tested on Fridays. Again, your support with these is much appreciated. Children have been given login's for Times Table Rockstar which they should now know how to access and play. Parents may check our weekly School Newsletter for further important information from staff. 

We have lots more to look forward to and we look forward to welcoming you to our first Y3 Parent Session next week!

Year Three Harvest Homework

posted 1 Nov 2016, 07:45 by J Janiszewski

The children of Year Three have had a busy half-term holiday, feverishly working away on their Harvest Art homework.  They were set the task of creating a piece of artwork based on the Christian theme of Harvest, as part of the SMSC curriculum.  The staff and pupils of Stocksbridge Junior School were left speechless by the quality of work which was produced.  The work will be taken to the Stocksbridge Christian Centre later this week, where it will be on display for all to see.  We would like to say thank you and well done to all the children who took part; your hard work has not gone unnoticed.

Butterfly House Ad Campaign

After their recent visit to the Butterfly House, the children in Year Three decided to plan an advertising campaign to persuade even more people to visit.

So far, they have discussed what makes a good advert and have had a go at drafting one on paper.  Over the next few weeks, they will explore text and image features and make appropriate choices for their own online adverts.
