Tuesday 5th May

Hi Clover Class,

This week we have a special bank holiday to celebrate 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day (V.E. Day), which took place on May 8th 1945. This day marks the end of World WarII in Europe.  You may even be planning a little tea party to celebrate this special day.

This week, your challenge is to do a project on World War II and VE day. 

You could research online some of the following:

  • What it was like to be a child in primary school in Britain during WWII ?
  • What people ate in Britain during WWII ?
  • How people coped with food rationing ?
  • Liverpool was heavily bombed during the war, including areas of Bootle .Try and find out if you live near an area that was bombed.
  • If you have any elderly relatives ( aged 75+) you could call them and ask if they remember anything about the war or the VE day celebrations?

 

You could have a go at making model of some of the aircraft used during WWII , recycling items from your house. You could also try making your own ration book . Can you bake an  eggless cake using a wartime recipe?

 

Some of the websites below may help with your research.

We would love to see pictures of your work or simply how you celebrated this special V.E Day. 

Please send any images to fwashington@nethertonmoss.co.uk . 

 

Take care & stay safe

Tuesday 28th April 

We hope you are all keeping well at home. Today is National Superhero Day !   Why not create your own superhero - draw a picture of them , and write about what makes them a superhero. What is their special power ? You can dress up as a superhero and create your superhero pose .  There lots of comic/film characters to take inspiration from , but don't forget our NHS superheroes and those working in offices,  shops and  care homes and binmen and bus drivers who are keeping the country running at the moment ! 

 

As always, we would love to see what you have been doing at home so you can email photos to fwashington@nethertonmoss.co.uk 

 

Take care and stay safe

Morning all  and welcome back to the Summer term. We are missing seeing you all and being together in Clover Class. We are sure you all are missing being with your friends too, but it is important that we continue to stay safe at home and follow the Government guidelines.

We would also like to set you a challenge to write a poem called "Staying Home". This poem can be about what you have been doing at home, anything new you have learned ( like learning to cook or mastering your time tables ! ), why we have to stay at home at the moment or how you are feeling about not being in school.  You can choose any style of poetry you like and make it rhyming or non-rhyming, You could also add some of the features we have learned about in school this year including similies ( eg. as quiet as a mouse, as fast as a cheetah) or alliteration (eg.  perfect pink polka dot pillows, spicy sizzling sausages) . 

We would love to see or hear about how you have been getting on with this challenge so when you have written your poem why not take a picture of it,  or just type it, and then email it to us . We can then put some of the poems here on our class page . 

 

If you feel like dropping us a line just  to say hello we would  love to hear from you as we miss chatting to you all  so please feel free to email and we will try to get back to you as soon as we can smiley.

Hi all,

Hope you are all keeping well and staying safe ? I have spoken to a few parents on the phone over the last few days and it has been so lovely to hear what the children have been doing at home : learning to tell the time,  practising times tables and spellings , playing times table bingo, writing stories, reading and some even enjoying the daily Joe Wicks exercise sessions online. 

Please find below some more ideas to try at home:

Monday 30th March 2020

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all okay and enjoyed your first week at home? In Clover Class we have a class timetable, outlining what we will be doing for the day. It's generally the first thing the children look at when they come into class each morning. They like routine and like to know what the day ahead will bring so why not try and do your own timetable at home and make sure you include time away from the screen ( tablet/TV)  and some exercise. Why not challenge the children to create their own exercise class for the whole family, incorporating some of the balances and movements we have learned so far this year in PE ? 

Please find some more home learning ideas below and don't forget to keep checking in with the website regularly.

For their third Forest School session, the children made bug hotels by hollowing out the inside of branches of elder trees found in our school grounds, tying them together and leaving them around our wooded area. They also made their own whistles , again by hollowing out parts of thicker branches. As usual, the children really enjoyed exploring and playing in the Forest School area and rounded the session off by toasting marshmallows around the campfire to make tasty s'mores and they even entertained us all with a few tunes on their whistles !

Monday 9th March 2020

During the second session of Forest School , the children in Clover Class learned how to use a flint and steel to light a fire. It was quick tricky at first, but everyone had a go and managed to successfully light a fire. The children also made boggarts from clay and they made hot chocolate using the Kelly kettle

Thursday 5th March 2020

 

Today we celebrated World Book Day in school. We have been reading a book called Greta and the Giants, inspired by the story of environmental activist, Greta Thunberg. Some of the children came to school dressed as animals and Mrs Washington and Mrs Windsor dressed as park rangers.  The children have all been given a £1 book token today which entitles  them to a free £1 World Book Day book  or £1 off a book or audiobook costing £2.99 or more in all participating bookshops.

Today Clover Class joined the children from Jazz class and went on a trip to see a concert by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and had a visit to the World Museum, Liverpool.  The theme of this year's concert was Our Global Vision which looked at how we need to look after our planet  - which links in with our whole school book study this week  of Greta and the Giants.  We all enjoyed listening to the great music from the Orchestra. 

In the afternoon we went to the Museum and visited the Ancient Egypt gallery, the natural history centre and the bug house. Some of the children even got to handle some animal skulls! Please see some photos below. 

Monday 2nd March 2020

 

Today the whole of Clover Class took part in a Forest School session , some in the morning and the rest in the afternoon. The children had a go at making name pendants from wood collected in our own woods, even trying  a bit of drilling and sawing ! They also make bird feeders from toilet rolls and had great fun exploring the woodland  area. The session ended with toasting marshmallows. We can't wait until next week !

Thursday 27th February 2020

 

The children had a great coaching session this afternoon with our visitors from the Jamie Carragher Academy. It was a great start to our football PE lessons for this half term and the children had lots of fun working on their dribbling skills and even had a go at taking some penalties.

Clover Class finished off this half term with some healthy pizza cooking on Friday afternoon !  Over the last few weeks in science, we have been learning about the different food groups and how our body needs food to survive.  The children  decided on the ingredients for their pizzas making sure they had a mixture of carbohydrates, proteins, fats  and dairy and some good sources of vitamins. Once the food preparation has been completed,  the children then made their own pizzas and we had just enough time to eat the pizzas before home time ! 

21st October 2019

 

Today Pop Project visited school to entertain us with their Walking on Sunshine show. Their focus this year was mental health and they talked and sang their way through the 5 steps to happiness. The children joined in with the activities and the songs , and even a bit of dancing too !

Clover Class had a fantastic trip to Chester Zoo today. The children loved seeing all the animals, particularly those we have been learning about during our Chester Zoo workshops over the last 4 weeks like the orangutans.The children also did an activity where they pretended to be hornbills and had seal up the entrance to their 'nest' with clay .   Although it did rain quite a bit in the afternoon, it didn't dampen our spirits too much as it gave us the perfect excuse to visit some of the indoor enclosures including the bat house and and the aquarium. A great day out was had by all !

11th October 2019

We've had our final two Chester Zoo workshops ahead of our trip to Chester Zoo on October 18th. The children learned more about the rainforests and the animals who live there and what Chester Zoo was doing to help them.  There was a quiz during the final workshop and the children did really well answering questions about palm oil, what sustainable means, what Chester Zoo is doing to help look after the rainforests and the animals living there and what the children can do to help too. They even had a go at designing some poster to raise awareness . We are all looking forward to going to Chester Zoo next week. 

2nd October 2019

This morning, Clover Class took part in our annual Horizon fun run. This year it took place in school with the juniors having to complete 4 laps of the junior yard !  Our  daily mile sessions have really helped build the children's stamina for running. Well done to Mason G, Daniel, Katie and Harlow who went to Hatton Hill today to race against other year 3 children from local schools. 

 

 

 

27th September 2019

 

Clover Class had the second of their Chester Zoo workshops today, continuing to look at the impact of rainforest destruction as a result of non-sustainable palm oil plantations.

In today's workshop the children got to learn about some of the animals and fruits from the rainforests. They got to handle skulls and feather of the hornbill toucan and parts of the orangutan skeleton. They also got to smell some of the very stinky fruits and plants of the rainforest ! The workshop ended with our favourite Palm Oil Conga song.

Welcome back ! 

We have had a very busy first full week back in Clover Class. The children have been settling well into the juniors and enjoying time out on the junior yard.

We have had a very busy day today in Clover Class! This morning we did our daily mile at 9.45am instead of our usual lunchtime slot.  Other Year 3 children from around Sefton were also  all running their mile at 9.45am this morning too. Thankfully the rain had stopped by then.  

This afternoon we learnt how to spell our name using the Spanish alphabet and continued with our recorder lessons. Because the children reached their class dojo target they also got some golden time. Some children chose to stay indoors to play  or colour, whilst other took advantage of the nice weather and went outside to play or to help Mrs Windsor with some planting. Please see some photos below.

To celebrate  World Book Day, Clover Class came to school in their pyjamas and  brought their favourite bedtime story. 

 

Like all the other classes in school,  this week we have been reading the Tin Forest, by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson.  We have done some descriptive writing about the forest and in the afternoons we have been doing art relating to the book. We have sketched some scenes from the book and had a go at some 3D art.  The paper flowers were big hit with the children, even if it did take us  a couple of attempts to get the flowers looking right! These flowers, as well as some other 3D art,  will form part of a display we have been working on with Sunflower Class. We will post some pictures of the display once it is finished. 

Wednesday 6th March 

Clover Class had a great day out on our trip today. We had a busy morning at the Walker Art Gallery where we met Luigi and Leda who brought us back in time to talk about Leonardo da Vinci and his very busy life ! We learned about his famous paintings and his work as an inventor,  a botanist, anatomist and geologist.  We then had a go a writing backwards ( Leonardo wrote everything backwards!) and sketched some inventions of our own.  After saying goodbye to Luigi and Leda we had a go at sketching some of the paintings on display in the Renaissance gallery, including a copy of the Mona Lisa and painting of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. Some of the children even got to dress up as the royals from the paintings! Please see some photos below.

After a busy morning in the Walker Art Gallery we headed off to the Philharmonic Hall to see the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra perform their Sounds Values concert. The  concert, which was themed around British Values, featured music from many composers including Handel, Mendelssohn, Grainger and Williams. The finale involved a song called All Our Different Voices, which was written especially for the concert. We have been practising singing and signing this song in school over the last few weeks and the children really enjoyed joining all the other schools and the orchestra to perform this song.

A great day out was had by all !

14th June 2018- We've had a very busy day today in Clover Class. This morning we walked to Litherland Sports Park for the Horizon Fun Run. Our Year 3 boys raced against other Year 3 boys and the girls raced against Year 3 girls from other schools too.  It was incredibly windy , particularly when we arrived, but all the children did extremely well. Our daily mile-a-day at school this year has really paid off ! A special well done to Jess who came first in the Year 3 race. 

This afternoon we painted the Stone Age necklaces that we designed and made from clay last week. The children worked really hard on their design and did a great job painting their necklaces. 

Please see photos of both events below.

18th May 2018 - Today there was much excitement in school ahead of tomorrow's Royal Wedding. Many children from Clover Class came to school dressed as princes, princesses, queens and knights. We made flags in the morning and had a party outside with the rest of school in the afternoon. We had even had some special visitors !

Today, Clover Class attended a whole school assembly and a class workshop delivered by a Science Boffin ! We saw lots of exciting experiments in the hall including disappearing water, flying toilet roll and expanding elephant toothpaste ! During our workshop we learned about the plant life cycle, and carried out some scientific experiments replicating how roots take in water and how bees pollinate flowers. We had great fun being bees and eating pollen (cheesy wotsits !) Please some photographs below .

Please see below a small selection of photos from today.
