Pluckley Church of England Primary School ‘Enjoying, Learning and Achieving Together.’

Year 3 - E.Nesbitt Class

Welcome to E.Nesbitt Class

 

24.7.15 Good bye Nesbitts!!  Thank you all for being such a wonderful class!  I have really enjoyed our learning journey this year and although I will still get to see you around school, I will miss working with you everyday!  Have a wonderful summer, lots of love Ms Berry.


 

17.7.15 I hope you all enjoyed watching our production of Wind in the Willows as much as we enjoyed performing and singing in it!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations everyone on our GOOD grading from OFSTED!!

 


14.7.15 Hello Pluto!  Super photo for Pluto (I have attached 2 links - one with a very good copy of the photo and the other that explains which parts of the dwarf planet are  visible.
13.7.15 We have been learning about the journey of the space probe New Horizons and are excited to see photos from it's flyby of Pluto.  I have attached links to the news programme we looked at to fuel our discussion.  We have been especially interested in the power and speed of radio waves that allow an image to be sent back to computers on earth in less than 5 hours from a distance that took over 9 years to reach!

30.6.15  Tomorrow is forecast to be even hotter than today, so please make sure you bring a hat and a named water bottle.  We are lucky enough to be in one of the coolest classrooms, but it is important to me that you stay well hydrated and protected when you go outside.

We are having a lot of fun learning the songs for our upcoming production of Wind in the Willows.  If you would like your own copy of the words to practice with at home, Mr Gardner has kindly added them to the documents section of the Dickens Class page.

26.6.15  Having visitors to the class and school is always very exciting and the children have expressed their interest, while maintaining their poise.  They have shown all of the school values, from enthusiasm for their learning to respect for each other.   I am not at all surprised by their outstanding behaviour, but I am very proud!
I look forward to reading the OFSTED report when it is published.

18.6.15  Thank you for coming to our final Nesbit Class Assembly.

 

 
11.6.15 What an exciting week we are having for Science Week!!
"First we went to the Marlowe Theatre and we watched scientists do lots of tricks.  My favourite
 was the one where they mixed the liquid nitrogen and the hot water, because it made a bang and a big white cloud." Tom
At school we have continued our scientific learning, by investigating chemical reactions, sources of renewable energy and polymers.  We have also been lucky enough to see a demonstration about the Solar System from Cameron and his dad.  They made a scale model of the 
rocky planets and their size and distance compared to the sun and set it up on the school field!
I would like to say a big thank you to Miss Caie, Miss Martin and Mr Clarke for sharing their scientific investigations with us; and well done to all the Nesbits for their great enthusiasm and scientific curiosity.

 


29.5.15 I Hope you have all had a lovely May half term and have been out and about enjoying the sunshine!  
Remember there is no swimming our first week back, but we do have a Sports Festival on Friday so please remember your PE kits, water bottles, and hats.

 

19.5.15 We have been preparing this week's science experiment today.  We are examining the effects of litter on our local habitat.  We have pinned a variety of materials to the ground in the allotment and will return in four days to check on how the grass has changed and if any minibeasts have moved in!

 

11.5.15  In Art this term we have been learning about artists who are famous for producing art that can not be put in a frame and hung on a wall.  We have been learning about the sculptures and paintings by Michelangelo.   Over the last weeks, we have split the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel into 17 sections, carefully sketched the details of our personal section and then following the original, added colour.  To gain a better understanding of the difficulties Michelangelo experienced, we attached our sketches to the underside of our desks and lay on our backs to colour, much as Michelangelo had to do to paint the ceiling himself.  To keep our clothes and faces clean we used crayons instead of paint, but did appreciate the difficulties of adding careful details when your arm is fully extended and having to maintain this position for extended periods of time. 

 

5.5.15 Swimming!  Well Done everyone for remembering your swimming costumes and having your first school swimming lesson.  I really enjoyed teaching swimming again and look forward to the rest of the term and hearing about how much you are improving in your confidence and skills. 


 

 

27.4.15 Travelling the World!! What a wonderful day we had last Friday, learning about the diverse cultures found around the world.  Here we are all ready for the Rio Carnival!! Today we brought home our masks and the Asian costumes we made. We have also made boomerangs and didgeridoos decorated with beautiful Aboriginal dot paintings, inspired by the animals and art of Australia.  Today in Geography we have been consolidating our learning and discussing the facts we have found out about the countries and people within each of the 7 continents of the world.  I will be adding photos as soon as I have them.

I would also like to thank those of you who nominated me for Teacher of the Year - I have just received a High Commended Certificate!  I am very pleased that you are happy with me as your class teacher, as I am very proud of all of you and I was greatly touched to be nominated.  I would not be the teacher I am without the wonderful enthusiasm and dedication shown everyday by all the Nesbits!
Thank You
