In Hawthorn class last week, we were learning about time.
In Willow class last week, we explored halving by sharing objects fairly into two groups.
We also had lots of fun weighing and comparing different objects using the bucket scales.
Pine class were really excited to receive letters from our partner school in France last week!
They have been working hard to create replies in the form of drawn portraits which they will annotate in English and French to describe their personalities and attributes.
I think everyone will agree they have made a fantastic start!
Palm class have also started writing their first letters to their partner school in Reunion Island. They have written a short message in English and in French to introduce themselves to their pen pals.
Bravo Year Three!
Today, to mark the start of Anti-Bullying week, our school celebrated Odd Socks Day!
We all came to school wearing different socks to recognise and celebrate being unique.
We talked in our classes about some of ways that we are all different and how being different is what makes us special.
We know that by showing our Silsoe School values we can make the world a happier and friendlier place for everyone!

On Friday 13th November our school community came together (in our pyjamas!) to support Children in Need.
We enjoyed a variety of fun activities and all spent time considering why supporting charities like Children in Need is so important.
We are really pleased and proud to announce that we raised a grand total of
A huge Thank-You to everybody who helped to make this possible!
Before half term all of the children at school were invited to take part in a very special competition to create a piece of rainbow art. Three pieces of rainbow art would then be selected to be put into our special school time capsule which will be buried at the new Hayfield Homes site in the village.
We were totally amazed at all the amazing rainbow entries!
Well done to everyone who took part and a special congratulations to our winners.
Here is a little video celebrating all your hard work – see if you can spot yours!
At 11.00am on 11th November 2020 every member of Silsoe VC Lower School joined together on the playground. We stood in socially distanced lines but we were still able to pause for a few minutes and reflect on the sacrifice of so many.
We came together and thought about why a poppy is worn and why we ‘Remember’. One of our pupils read a poem and we followed this with a 2 minutes silence. I was extremely proud of the respect that all of our children displayed during this time by maintaining the silence and reflecting.
We closed our act of remembrance with an extract from the poem “For the Fallen” by Laurence Binyon.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
