What a busy week! There has been so going on... It was lovely to see you enjoying your last ever swimming lesson as Class 3... Even if some of you did get me wet! I am not naming the culprits but you know who you are!! cheeky


This week has also provided you with the opportunity to consolidate and extend your  weight knowledge in our maths lessons. We are all blown away by how you have all blossomed into confident, resilient mathematicians. Go superstars! We can't forget your amazing English lessons. We have finally taught you all the strategies and skills that you will be using in your pirate inspired narrative and we look forward to seeing you start to write them on Monday morning.


Thank you to those of you who came and joined in our celebration on Tuesday afternoon. We hear it was an emotional, yet extremely special event where each member of the class had the chance to sparkle and shine. frown

In maths this week our focus has been on horizontal, parallel and perpendicular lines and we are so proud to say all children were amazing and can now confidently identify the various lines.


We would also like to say a massive 'Well done!' to those of you who took part in the Junior Music Festival. It was fantastic to come and watch you perform at the Cliffs on Thursday evening. It really was a goosebump moment!!

A Passion For Fashion!



WOW! What an exciting morning you had today Class 3! I bet none of you expected to be taking part in a fashion activity, which would include designing, creating and modelling did you?! Oh....And I forgot one important thing...All in carrier bags!! As always, you blew us  away with your team work skills, creativity and ability to think outside the box in these rare, yet exciting, opportunities. Well done to those of you who modelled down Wyburns catwalk in front of the whole school... Move over Kate Moss! Once the fashion fun was over you used your knowledge from our English lessons to produce amazing recounts  on the morning's events.


If all of the above didn't make a fab Friday, we had a surprise when we were told that Class 3 were the proud joint winners of the BB Cup with Class 2. Yippppeeeeeee!!

Amazing African Workshop!



Today Class 3 were really lucky to part in an African inspired workshop. They had the opportunity to find out about daily life, culture and local art. After that had discussed daily life with our visitor they had a go at creating various African patterns using a range of materials. Can you remember any of them Class 3?


Well done on a super afternoon; you all showed great resilience when learning about new techniques and I felt extremely proud of you all.

Super Swimming!



Well done to all of you for having a super positive attitude to swimming lessons. It was great to see you all enjoying yourselves even if it was raining for the whole lesson! We were also impressed with the speed that you got ready before and after your swimming lesson.


We have a feeling that it is going to be a super successful week!frown


Miss Fox, Mrs Edmonds and Mrs Long smileysmileysmiley


Friday 29th April 2016



In English this week the children have used The Lion King as a stimulus to create their very own African themed narrative. They have worked so hard on coming up with brilliant sentence openers, using prepositions and using verbs and adverbs to describe how different animals move. We can't wait to see your stories next week.


In maths lessons this week the children's learning focus was shape and perimeter. We were blown away with their resilience and determination to find the perimeter of basic 2D shapes.


Thank you to those of you who joined in the celebration on Friday for Class 3's Brilliance Assembly. It was  amazing to see the children so engaged and enthused with their learning and we especially enjoyed the musical performance. Well done superstars! frown


We hope you have a lovely three day weekend and come back to school on Tuesday ready to sparkle and shine... Remember your swimming kit!! laugh

WOW! What a super start back Class 3!! It has been fab to see you all being enthusiastic learners and have worked so hard this week. We had lots of fun learning about the process of mummification and you used your Talk for Writing skills to help you remember the seven steps. YIKES! Your knowledge and understanding for this gruesome process will help you to write a super set of instructions in the next few weeks.


You were all superstars at the STOMP workshop on Wednesday and worked hard to create music using your hands and feet. It has been absolute pleasure to be back at school and teaching all of you. Let's try and make this the best term ever!


Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you bright and early on Monday (with your white t-shirts for our tie dye lesson).

Can you believe that it is the end of the term? Time flies when you are having fun!!cheeky What a super busy half term we have had, which has included the wonderful science week where we got chance to take part in the missions.

16.3.16 Completing Our Missions For Science Week!

Friday 11th March 2016



Another week done and another week where brilliance has shone. You rose to the challenge with our challenging fraction calculations where all of you were able to add fractions together and also subtract them. It was great to see some of you finally believing that you are mathematicians who can really achieve.


In Big Write today we saw some wonderful non-chronological reports on Upside Down Planet. Your faces were a picture when you came into the classroom this morning to see lots of things upside down. Well done to those of you who were able to read the message on the board; I wonder which cheeky teacher wrote upside down?! Can you remember some of the exciting information that you put in your non-chronological report? If so, why not share it with your family at home as we are sure they will agree when we say you are bursting with brilliance.


Finally, we would like to say a huge congratulations to you all for being the proud winners of the Brilliance Cup!


We hope you have a lovely weekend but remember to get a bit of a rest because we have a super busy week next week with science week and auditions for Wyburns' Got Talent, which will be held on Monday afternoon.


Miss Fox, Mrs Edmonds and Mrs Long smileysmileysmiley

Science Week!


We will be celebrating Science week through a theme entitled “Spies.”

Remember which morning your parents/ carers are invited!


Monday 9:15  - 11:00am - Year 5 and Year 6

Monday 1:15- 2:45pm- Early Years

Tuesday 9:15- 11:00am- KS1

Wednesday 9:15- 11:00am- Year 3 and Year 4  


Normal routines will still occur – we will come into class and complete the register. At 9:10am, the Key Stage Two gate will open and you can meet your parents on this playground. Let the missions begin!


Completing missions is thirsty work, so Friends of Wyburns will be providing refreshments, drinks and bacon buns, from 10:15- 11:00am. Please feel free to buy and share a refreshment and complete the remaining missions.

We will then come back into class to continue our learning.


Please be aware this is a weather permitting event. Should there be inclement weather on the day all events will be postponed. This will be posted on the website banner if cancelled.

Fingers crossed for some sunshine!


Lets get Sciency!


Look forward to seeing you there

Fantastic French!

Friday 4th March 2016



Can you believe that another week is over? Time really does fly by when you are having so much fun! This week we have seen you transform into division superstars and so many of you are now confident in using various written methods to work out tricky calculations. In English we saw you bring all your knowledge of non-chronological reports that you had learnt over the past few weeks to create your very own factual page. We were blown away when we read them and couldn't quite believe how many of them included subordinating conjunctions. If that wasn't enough brilliance for the week we were the proud, joint winners of the Brilliance Cup with Class 4. Well done superstars!


Next week our attention will be moving to narratives in English; we have decided to link it to the Disney film Up! We hope to see you transferring your knowledge and understanding from our science lessons on forces to help you write thrilling stories. In maths we will revisit fractions and learn how to add and subtract fractions! There is a lot of work to be done over the next week but we know what brilliant, resilient learners you are.



Please make sure that you are reading at least five times a week. Due to the lack of reading in Class 3 we are coming last in The Great Reading Race. Remember we are aiming for a pyjama day. Come on Class 3!


Have a fantastic weekend and we shall see you bright and early on Monday morning.

Friday 26th February 2016



WOW! Class 3 you have definitely come back to school ready to learn. What a super week you have had! In maths we saw all of you being resilient and challenging yourselves with tackling various methods to solve multiplication calculations. It was great to see lots of you applying your times tables skills to help you. Hopefully with our daily times table test we will have all of you feeling super confident. no


English lessons have been extremely interesting as our focus for the next few weeks is non-chronological reports. We can't wait to see the interesting facts that you find on your animal and look forward to seeing your homework on Thursday. When I was marking your English books I had a goosebump moment because even though subordinating conjunctions is super hard you all gave it a go. Class 3 you really do blow us away with your brilliance!


We hope you have a wonderful weekend and remember to continue to read and practise our key phrases in French. Maybe you could even teach your family a little bit of French! frown

We can't believe it is half term already but you have worked your socks off when producing all your brilliance across all subjects so you deserve a little rest! How fab was it that we get to share the Brilliance Cup with Class 8. You make us proud of everyday and you astound us with your positive, respectful behaviour around school.

Class 3 have become journalists this week and created their very own newspaper articles about the cheeky toys who escaped!! We have thoroughly enjoyed reading them and particularly liked your catchy headlines.


In science this week we moved our attention from forces to magnets. Can you remember our two buzz words? We learnt that every magnet has a North and South pole. We had lots of fun investigating with them in small groups.


Here are a few fun links that we use in our mega maths session

Blooming into RESILIENT learners!



For the next three weeks we will be using newspaper articles as a stimulus in our English lessons. On Monday the children explored and identified various features and even explained how they are used to make an article super successful. We then moved our attention to the different forms of grammar used in articles and we were blown away with your resilience of tackling subordinate clauses. GO TEAM!

Can you remember what a subordinate clause is? Can you remember what a main clause is?


In geography lessons we discussed the difference between human and physical features and were able to identify features in our local area and also those found in other parts of the world.


Our brilliant week was finished off by a super afternoon of painting. We used Vincent van Gogh's Sunflowers as our inspiration and created some super pieces of art. The children learnt how to blend the paints together to create a gradient effect and my goodness don't they look effective. Please watch this space for the children's sensational sunflowers to be uploaded to our class page.



Have a terrific weekend Class 3 and please remember to read as much as possible because we are in second place at the moment in KS2's Great Reading Race.

Alien Madness!



This week Class 3 wrote super letters to the aliens on Saturn no. They all included paragraphs, descriptive language and questions that they wanted the aliens to answer. Can you remember what your exciting questions were? If you can why not share them with your family! I am eager to see if the aliens have a reply for us next week....


Our maths lessons this week were based on 2D and 3D shapes. How many can you name? Can you name any of the properties?

Remember our three buzz words for 3D shapes:

* Faces

* Vertices

* Edges


Have a fantastic weekend! Remember to do lots of reading so we can win 'The Great Reading Race'.


We will see your cheeky faces bright and early on Monday morning. frown

'F' is for Friendship



WOW! First week back has been completed! We have noticed something quite fantastic...  You all have these big smiles on your faces and it really is great to see. There is nothing better for us to see that you are enjoying all of the lessons and learning new things.


Can you believe that you managed to have two cakes in the first week back? The first one you made when you weighed out all the ingredients in our maths lesson and the second one was in English when you used your very own instructions to help Mrs Edmonds make more yummy fairy cakes. Well done for using time connectives and imperative verbs...You were all BOSSY!


We have been really impressed with how you have gone the extra mile in Friendship Week in and out of the classroom. It makes us so proud to have such wonderful, caring children in our class. GO TEAM FOX!



We hope you have a super weekend and recharge your batteries for another week of brilliance where we will be writing letters to another planet and learning all about 2D and 3D shapes.

Welcome Back!



It was lovely to see you today; we thoroughly enjoyed listening to what you got up to over the Christmas holiday and what Santa bought you on Christmas Day. Even though you had two weeks off school you definitely haven't forgotten how to burst with brilliance because you blew our socks off today! There was lots of laughter in our maths lesson when we used our weight knowledge to measure out ingredients to make yummy fairy cakes. Not only were we impressed with how mature and sensible you were when measuring the ingredients ensuring you were accurate but the way you worked with your group. Team work is key this week as it is friendship week.


2016 will definitely will be a year where you will shine, sparkle and show your brilliance to others! Go team awesome! no

Well maths has been interesting this week hasn't it Class 3?! We linked our capacity lessons to our class book (The Witches by Roald Dahl) and the children had a super exciting lesson where they put their knowledge to the test to create their very own potion. Great team work skills Class 3; not only were you enthused and engaged but you all supported one another to be successful learners.


In English you have blown us away with your simile and texture adjective work. You have used your imagination and knowledge to produce work in your writing book, which is simply brilliant. We can't wait to read your Christmas poems at the end of the week smiley.

Road Safety Afternoon


What a super fun afternoon we all had with Class 4! It was great to see all of you working in your small groups to create futuristic clothes to keep people safe when they are walking or cycling in the dark. I especially liked the disco balls, which attach to your shoes to allow you to see any obstacles on the pavement in the dark- very cool!


We have been keeping our eyes on The Great Reading Race board and we are in second place wink. Come on Class 3 to win our prize we must all remember to read five times a week and got parents/ carers to sign. How fab would it be to have a PJ day at the end of term!

Little Red Riding Hood With A Twist!



WOW! You have really impressed us with how you were able to retell the story of Little Red Riding Hood using Talk for Writing actions in our English lessons this week. Lots of you came up with imaginative ways to retell the traditional tale, which added lots of laughter to these lessons throughout the week. However, today Dave the dog with his creative hat on, which meant Miss Fox was ready to mix it all up and surprise you cheeky monkeys! Dave gave each of you an envelope, which explained your new setting for your story.


New settings:

Crunchies and Wispas- Space "My story is called Little Red Space Helmet. It is set in space when she is all grown up and she is trying to save the planet from cheeky aliens!"- Matthew

KitKats and Aeros- An icy, cold place "My bad character is a mean, angry polar bear and my good character is a fluffy, small penguin who is trying to get the fish back to his family who live in a snow house."- Jack

Twirls and Maltesers- Beach "My story is set at the beach. My bad character is a stingray who has magical powers and my good character is a hard, orange crab."- Jessica


It was lovely to see you so enthusiastic to share your ideas with Mrs Sansom when she came to visit us this morning. Fingers crossed some of you can show her your brilliant stories when they are completed.

Class 3 Are RE Rock Stars and PSHE Pros!


What a fab few lessons we have had learning about Christianity and some of the stories that are in the Bible. Class 3 used their Talk for Writing actions to help them retell the story of how Jesus chose his 12 disciples and put their knowledge and understanding to the test when they created cartoon strips.


In PSHE we have focused our learning on responsibility. First, we looked at how we are responsible members of Wyburns and came up of lots of ways, which included in the classroom and also outside on the playground. After that, we moved our focus to how we are responsible members in a wider society. Once again you had some amazing ideas!


"I am responsible for looking after my pets at home. I feed and play  with them so they are not hungry and feel safe."- Lottie


"I always put my rubbish in the bin. We must remember to not litter because it will damage the planet!"- Alice


"I try and make sure that I turn off the lights at home so it doesn't waste electricity and it also saves money!"- Leo


I hope you are ready Class 3 for our next topic in PSHE.... Debate! We will be debating whether children should have to wear school uniform. I look forward to this lesson!


Remember to keep sparkling and shining because you are all working so hard!


Miss Fox smiley


Fantastic French!



Class 3 have been working really hard in our French lessons and now are confident in saying "Hello, my name is...." We have been practising a lot and even speak in French when doing the register in the morning! Superstars, do you think you could teach your family members how to say our short phrase that we have been learning?

From a packet of Bourbon biscuits to creating Stonehenge!


Class 3 were sad to say 'Goodbye'  to our art lessons until Spring term but were extremely excited to say 'Hello' to our design technology lessons, which are based on structures and also link to our creative theme of The Rolling Stones. The pupils had a super fun afternoon today because they had the opportunity to create their very own prototype of Stonehenge with Bourbon biscuits! We looked at a range of structures from around the world and brainstormed as a class the similarities and how they were different. After that, we spoke about how prototypes are used by designers and the various steps of producing the final piece. Class 3  did really well not to eat the yummy, chocolate biscuits and worked hard in their teams to create the very own Stonehenge. All the groups managed to put their own spin on the fascinating landmark and some children got rather frustrated when a cheeky Miss Fox came round and tested how secure their structure was!


I wonder if you can create Stonehenge using another sort of biscuit?! Will they work better than our tasty Bourbons?

Mosaic Madness!

Tuesday 10th November 2015



Class 3 are Bursting with Brilliance and we are only on Tuesday!


How cool was our mega maths this afternoon?! I loved learning my 3 times tables and 6 times tables with Uptown Funk and Cheerleader. Who said maths couldn't be fun?! cheeky It would be fab if you could show parents/carers the website we used as we are sure everyone in your household will start humming the tune after a while.


Today in our RE lesson we learned why baptism is important to the Christian faith. As a class, we came up with lots of Talk for Writing actions to help us understand the strong message that underpins this important event and even did a short role play. A big well done to Lottie who was very patient at pretending to be baptised, Jaimee for being a brilliant vicar and Isla, Lily and Jack for being super scary sinners! Class 3 you rock!


Class 3 we just wanted to tell you about the exciting update... you are in the lead at the moment for the BB cup; continue to show the rest of your school how you come into assemblies, conduct yourselves on the playground and also remembering your polite manners at lunchtime. Fingers and toes crossed we can be the champions for another week. indecision

Sensational Soil!



In our science lesson today our focus was learning about the different layers in the soil profile. We came up with actions to help us to remember where the O horizon, A horizon, B horizon, C horizon and bedrock layers go. Class 3 got lots of scientific vocabulary in and even had the opportunity to show their science and performance skills off when Mrs Sansom came to visit us. Well done Class 3 you are now soil experts!


Dave's challenge to you all is to show all the people at home how the superstars of Class 3 remembered the different layers of the soil profile. Remember to master a skill is for you to be able to teach someone else a new skill or a piece of information.

Tuesday 3rd November 2015


Introducing Dave 


Class 3 are proud to introduce their new class pet... Dave the dog! cheeky We had a vote at renaming Miss Fox's dog puppet and the most popular name was Dave. Thanks Jack for suggesting this super cool name! no He has helped us in our English lessons when we have used the Thinking Hats. On Monday we used the green hat, which is for creativity and came up with lots of wonderful ideas using our imagination. In today's lesson we used the red hat, which is for feelings. The red hat helped us to generate lots of emotive language that we could use in our rock stories.


From all the superstars of Class 3 frown

We know we always tell you and the rest of the school how brilliant Class 3 are but you have been superstars who have wowed us in all lessons with your positive, fun attitude to learning, which has enabled you to be super successful. Have a fabulous half term with your family and friends because you really do deserve a rest; we cannot wait to see all your moments of brilliance when we return to school on Monday 2nd November.

Eco Champions!



Well done Class 3 for achieving the highest score in Eco Week 1. We are so impressed with the way you came to school over the three weeks we were recording; well done to all of you who walked to school! frown

You have blown us away with the work you have produced in our English and maths lessons but we are even more impressed with how resilient you are when faced with a challenge. Remember Class 3 practise makes PERFECT... When you feel like giving up on a challenge look up at our mouse picture on the white board. If he gave up he would never get the cheese!



You have worked so hard in English where we were learning about different nouns. Could you explain the difference of a common, proper and abstract noun to the people at home? Remember to master a skill is to be able to not only explain but teach another person. Give it a go! In maths this week our focus was multiplication and all of you were successful learners... We were so pleased to hear lots of you saying "I can't do it yet" at the beginning of the week and at the end of the week you were proud of your achievements.


Next week is a super exciting week because it is book week; our book is The Twits... Expect some mischievous things to be going on throughout the week... WATCH THIS SPACE CLASS 3!



Have a wonderful weekend and remember to read! We are still in 3rd place in The Great Reading Race against the other classes in KS2.

This afternoon Class 3 and Class 4 worked together to become masters of E-Safety! First, we watched a short clip explaining how to keep safe when using the internet and the precautions we could use to help us keep ourselves and also our friends safe too. As a large group we brainstormed all the creative, inspiring ways we could share our knowledge with the rest of  the school. One of the groups decided to create posters explaining all the things we should do when using the internet and the other group designed their very own avatar to symbolise that the character on the computer screen is not the same as the one behind the screen.


We had a fantastic afternoon together and well done to all of you for working so hard. Please remember that surfing the web can be fun and enjoyable but you must keep safe  by not giving out your personal details and always tell an adult if you think something isn't quite right or something has upset you.

Talk and Share



Thank you to all of you who came to Class 3's Talk and Share this afternoon. It was great to see the children so enthusiastic about what they have learnt so far in the academic year , their targets and next steps and most importantly it was lovely to see how proud of the work that they have produced in their books. I hope you will agree with me when I say all of Class 3 are simply bursting with brilliance and when I think they can't get any more brilliant they surprise me... This year is getting better by the week!


Thank you for your continued support smiley


Best wishes,

Brilliant Butterflies Created By Oil Pastels


* We hope you can join your child in celebrating their work in our Talk and Share afternoon on Wednesday 14th October. This is a fantastic opportunity for the pupils to share what they have achieved already in year 3. After seeing your child's work we hope you will be able to agree with us when we say that there has been lots of moments of brilliance. Class 3's Talk and Share will take place straight after school on Wednesday afternoon and will end at 4.15pm.

Explanation Texts


Class 3 have had an exciting week in English this week! smiley

After identifying and exploring various explanation texts in small groups and even watching a video on the life cycle of a butterfly they wrote their own factual page with time connectives. The factual pages were not only very informative about the lifecycle of the butterfly but interesting too as you remembered to put small pictures next to each stage to illustrate each part of the process.


Do you think you could explain this fascinating process to the people at home? It is rather amazing when you think about it that the Monarch butterfly was once a caterpillar who munched on juicy, green leaves! sad




Another week of BRILLIANCE completed! Have a wonderful weekend superstars and we cannot wait for you to all sparkle and shine in next week's production.


Miss Fox, Mrs Edmonds and Mrs Long smileysmileysmiley


The time has come where you will have the opportunity to sparkle and shine on the stage and show the audience all your brilliance in our production. Can we remind you that all costumes and props need to be in on Monday 12th October as we have a dress rehearsal in the morning to ensure our vocal chords are warmed up and we have our dancing shoes on! cheeky


There will be an opportunity for parents/carers to see our sensational show on Wednesday morning or Thursday afternoon.


We hope you can make it!

A massive thank you to all of you who bought in a food for our harvest assembly today. I was thrilled to see Class 3's harvest box bursting with your kind donations for those who are less fortunate than us and it is great to see all of you embracing being part of a community in school and beyond the school gates.

The Dream Giver


Class 3 were slightly shocked but very excited when they walked into the classroom this morning. Our classroom was very dark but there was a small glow coming from underneath the board.... an electric blue light, which had a mysterious cracked egg next to it which was oozing with blue liquid.


After discussing who the egg belonged to we watched a video and realised it was from the Dream Giver. The Dream Giver is a small goblin with delicate, golden wings who helps  children to dream of magical and wonderful things while they sleep peacefully at night by cracking his golden eggs. Well done to all of you for writing your very own Dream Giver story; we were really impressed with your use of descriptive language but even more so with your brilliant imaginations that started to conjure up. It was an extremely successful first Big Write for you all.


We hope you have a wonderful weekend. Can we just remind you to remember to read at least five times each week as this will build us up air miles for the Great Reading Race... Remember we are in third place at the moment after the results were read out in KS2 assembly... Come on superstars we can do it!

Performing Poetry!


In our English lesson today the children worked as a small group to create an acrostic poem for 'Rocking Rocks'. They all worked super hard to include exciting vocabulary such as alliteration, adjectives, personification and even onomatopoeia!


After that, the children used their acting skills and put actions to their poem. Well done on performing to all your class this morning. We were so impressed with your team work skills.


Keep up the BRILLIANCE superstars!

In A World Of Pure Imagination...


Well done Class 3 you have successfully completed your first week in KS2. Congratulations!


We have been reading all of your wonderful washing machine stories and have been blown away. You have used your imagination so well to create new, underwater worlds that have tie snakes, fish socks, jellyfish gloves and t-shirt sharks! It was a pleasure to read all of them. frown


We hope you all have a restful weekend and remember to keep practising your times tables in preparation for Disney Maths Minute, which will take place twice a week.

See you bright and early on Monday morning superstars!

Be Proud Of Who You Are!



This afternoon our focus was about being unique individuals and celebrating our differences. We worked in small groups and discussed the meaning of being unique. After that, we used our knowledge and understanding to draw one of our friends and write down some of the amazing qualities they have.


Well done Class 3 for working as a team; it was fabulous to see all the lovely things you said about each other... and there was lots of brilliant artwork too! no

A Journey Of A Thousand Miles Begins With A Single Step



Class 3 you have astonished us since you've come back to school. We are feeling incredibly lucky for having such an amazing class. The way you have adjusted to our new classroom, our expectations of you and how you are putting in lots of effort to produce work that is bursting with BRILLIANCE  has knocked our socks off! We are just at the beginning of our new and exciting journey together but you have taken the first few steps into your adventure of being in year 3 and we hope you are all proud of yourselves because we most certainly are.


Can we take the time to remind you that our PE day is on a Thursday but we would suggest that you have your PE kits in school at all times. There won't be any formal homework set this week, however we would advise you to practise your times tables over the weekend.


We look forward to working with you all,
