13th September 2019

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. 

A number of important letters have been sent home this week including the hometime collection letter, internet and photograph permissions letter and the flu nasal spray letter. Could I please ask that these are signed as soon as possible and returned to school. 

We have lots of exciting things planned for this term including,  in the coming weeks,  a visiting theatre company production of Pinocchio, Chester Zoo workshops in school, a visit to Chester Zoo and  a Macmillan coffee morning. 

Keep checking our class page for news and  photographs  of what the children have been up to in school.

Clover Class had a great trip out this afternoon . It was Miss Greer's last day with us and so as a special treat we went to Rowan Adventure Park. The rain thankfully stopped in time for our visit and a great time was had by all. Please see some photographs below.

Today we had a special visit from decathlete, Matt Lee. Matt put the children through their paces with  some circuit training and then there was a special assembly where he told us about how he trains for the 10 events he completes in and also the about the importance of diet and nutrition for top athletes. There was then opportunities for the children to ask Matt some questions. Please find some photographs below.

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.

A huge well done to the 8 children from Clover Class who took part today in a times tables competition with other Year 3 children from local schools. During the competition the children had to answer multiplication and division questions on their own,  and as part of their team.  They all did incredibly well and made us very proud.

We had some very exciting visitors in school today ! Boo's Zoo2You brought in lots of animals for us to see including an owl, owlet, millipede, skunk, bosc monitor lizard, a large and a small burmese python and meerkats. The children were able to see these animals up close and have a go at stroking them and even holding some of them! Please see a selection of photographs below.

We've had a very busy day in Clover Class today. This morning we attended the Easter Experience  where visitors from St Oswald's Church told us all about the Easter Story. 

 

This afternoon as part of our Rocks & Fossils topic in science , we investigated the permeability of difference types of soils. We measured how much water soaked through each sample of soil after 3 minutes to find out which type of soil was the most permeable.

A group of children from Years 3 & 4 attended an athletics event today at Kings Leadership Academy Hawthornes, competing against 11 other local primary schools. The children took part in a number of activities including relay, hurdles, soft javelin and  long jump . Well done to everyone who took part.  A selection of photographs from today's event can be found below.

Thursday 7th March

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 !

This afternoon, Clover Class made the most of the lovely weather and took our learning outside. This term we have been learning about human and animal skeletons and we used our knowledge of the human skeleton to create some environmental art. The children worked in small groups and founds branches and twigs from around the junior playground to create their very own skeletons. A selection of photographs from their fabulous creations can be found below.

Mrs Christian's maths group have been working really hard counting forwards and backwards in 2's, 3's and 5's to 100. 

Check out the link below to learn the Multiples of 3 Rap!

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 .
