India by Class 3

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

This term every year group is learning about another country – Year 3 children are finding out about India. We have found out that India is in southern Asia and has the magnificent Himalayan mountain range to the north of the country. A popular dish eaten in India is called thali which is named after the metal dish it is traditionally served on. Thali consists of a portion of rice, yoghurt, lentils and a mix of vegetables. We are now researching the Taj Mahal, built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife.

This week we have had one of the most extraordinary weeks ever as we have had to put up with the word that year 6 dread to think about- SATs! It was the time that we did our SAT’s. At first we thought it would be hard, but eventually they got pretty easy, as we are super clever!

We’ve interviewed some Year 6’s to find out their thoughts and feelings. Kayleigh, Class 10 said: “I found them challenging but also fun” Melissa said: “You need to have a positive mental attitude.” Also Skye explained that she felt relieved after she had finished the tests.

Every morning we sat there and watched our teachers (Mrs Stuart, Mrs Enright and Miss Hurt) open the black envelope containing our SATs papers. What a hard week! But now it’s all over, and we can’t wait for this afternoon, SATs party here we come!

Mr Darby gave us a fright this morning, as he came in with more black envelopes and tricked us into thinking that there were more SATs to do, But he was only joking, the papers in the envelope were marking schemes!
Over all Mrs Stuart has helped us along the way, thank you miss. She’s one in a million!! We wouldn’t have done with out her.

After a long Easter holiday class 5 were looking forward to finding out our new Topic for this term. For this term we are looking at the wonderful country of Guatemala which stands in South America. Class 5 watched a short video clip to give us an idea of what Guatemala is like. We are also excited about working with our new teaching assistants who are Mr Higgins and Mrs Sidhu but we will still miss Mrs White and hope she is having a good retirement. We can’t wait to start learning about our new topic and to find out more!
