Despite only being in school three days this week – Class 3 have had such a busy week – flying to and visiting Italy!!

On Wednesday we all gathered passports, bags, fruit and boarding cards and we were off!! After some very strict passport control we boarded the plane and enjoyed a 2 hour 33 minute flight to Italy.

Once in Italy we had a guided tour, found out about the main landmarks, made fraction pizzas, found out about culture in Italy and made our own tourist photos – we were so busy!

Next week, we are going to use all the information we found out to write our own non-chronological reports about Italy – watch this space!


For homework, I would like you to see if you can find out more about Italy ready for the start of next week. Here are some ideas…

Can you find out about the language?

Can you find out about the different landmarks to visit?

Can you find out about the flag and what the different colours mean?

Can you find out about the food or maybe the music?

Feel free to use these ideas or come up with your own. The more you find out – the better your finished report will be!

Quick Starts for Maths

Below are links to our last two quick starts. Please feel free to consolidate this learning at home. I have also added a drawer to the maths area in class, with previous weeks work in it – your child is welcome to help themselves to any if they wish.

Finally, thank you to everyone who joined us for our Showcases this week, it was lovely to have you in school and the children loved the opportunity to share their work. Thank you for all the kind donations for your child’s artwork. We look forward to spending it on more equipment!
