Eastcombe Primary School welcomes Alistair to Year 3. We hope he loves our school and has a happy time learning here.
In our design and technology lessons, we had great fun making moving vehicles.
After designing our vehicles, we carefully measured and cut wood to create our chassis. We stuck our chassis together using cardboard triangles, this made them a strong structure.
Some of us designed nets for the body of our vehicles, whilst others used boxes.
A big THANK YOU to all of the parents who came in to help us make our vehicles.
We are really proud of our vehicles!! Please take a look at our finished vehicles below…
On THURSDAY 14th APRIL at 3.20pm we will be holding a phonics meeting in Squirrel Class. The purpose of this meeting is to share with you how we teach phonics and give you some tips for supporting your child at home. This will include correct pronunciation of sounds which is something we can only do with your support. The meeting will last no longer than half an hour and a crèche will be provided in Owl class. We would love to see parents from both Squirrel and Hedgehog class attend. We look forward to your support.
To raise funds for Sports Relief, we would like the children to dress in sporty clothes on Friday (18th March) and bring in £1 to donate to Sport Relief. Suggestions include tracksuits, sports kits etc.
We hope you are able to support this worthy cause.
Hedgehog Class had a wonderful time visiting The Living Rainforest. We found out all about the different layers of the rainforest and how the animals and plants have adapted to live in this different climate.
Today is the last day of our school book fair. We need to reach the magic target of raising £300 before the school benefits from receiving free books. We are some way away from this target and so I urge you to come and buy tonight. There is a wide range of books which would be great as Christmas and Birthday presents. As the quote goes; everyone is a reader…some just haven’t found their favourite book yet!
Our end of term theme week is fast approaching and we are looking for willing helpers. Staff are ready to go with winter themed activities but we are needing help throughout the week. We are looking for people between 9.30-10.30am and 11.00-12.00 on Monday 14th, Tuesday 15th, Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th December. If you are able to help during this exciting week at all, please can you ring Mrs David in the office to let her know your availability. Many Thanks.
On Friday we had a super science lesson where we got to make our own paper! We have been learning about materials and a lady came from the council to teach us all about recycling. She showed us lots of things made from recycled materials like a rubber mouse mat and a bag made from drink cartons! We then found out how paper was made and got to make our own. It was a messy task but great fun. Most of us made two pieces and to make it even more interesting, we added some glitter (well it is nearly Christmas!).
