Cedar Class - Y3
WELCOME TO CEDAR CLASS!
WE ARE MISSING OUR FRIEND FREDDIE.
Freddie is in hospital at the moment, being treated for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He is being so brave and Cedar Class are sending their love to him. Cedar Class are also trying to raise money for Freddie and his family - and with the terrific help of all the Smiths - have recorded a song for him, which can be downloaded from a donation site. If you click on Freddie's pictures it will take you to the sites:
Most of the class gave up their time on Sunday 30th June to record the song. I am so proud of them all (along with parents) as not only did they give up their time and sing beautifully, but they were, as usual, impeccably behaved! Freddie's grandparents were with us and were so impressed by everyone.
We are all working hard and having fun with our teachers -
Mrs Hammond, Mrs Jenner-Dyer (on Fridays) and Mrs Harrod.
This half term we shall be donating money to save orangutans. To raise some money for the BOS Foundation, we held some sponsored events on Thursday 25th April and a 'Bring and Buy Sale'. SO FAR WE HAVE RAISED A MAGNIFICENT £952.16 - SO A HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED US TO DO THIS!
We now have begun studying STONE AGE TO IRON AGE. We shall be investigating the changes through these prehistoric periods and our literacy work will be based upon STONE AGE BOY. Also, we shall be investigating rocks and fossils as part of our science work.
Check out the bottom of this page for full details about our topic work.
