|Mrs Jenkin’s drop scone recipe
4oz/100g self raising flour
1oz/25g caster sugar
1/4 pint /150ml milk
Step 1: Grease the surface of a heavy frying pan lightly with butter.
Step 2: Take a large bowl and mix the flour and sugar together in the bowl.
Step 3: Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and crack the egg into it and pour in half of the milk and stir.
Step 4: Then, slowly add the rest of the milk whilst stirring, to achieve a smooth batter.
Step 5: Place the pan on the hob and heat on a medium heat. (This will depend on the thickness of your pan. You will need to watch the drop scones so they don’t brown to quickly).
Step 6: Take a serving spoon and spoon the mixture on to the hot surface, making sure they are well spaced out. (You will need an adult to do this bit.)
Step 7: When bubbles rise to the surface, turn the scones over and allow them to cook on the other side for 30 secs to a minute.
Step 8: Remove from pan.
Step 9: Add further spoonfuls to the pan and repeat until you have used all the batter.
Makes 12 – 18 drop scones depending how generous your spoonfuls are.
|Hope and new life
During the Autumn Term Wilsford Class have grown a hyacinth bulb.
It is now flowering and it smells beautiful – it is on the windowsill of the classroom
Hello, Year 3!
I am Mrs Woodley, your class teacher. The rest of the team are Mrs Fay, Mrs Jenkins and Mrs Ginn. Well done for working so hard over the Autumn Term. We have learnt about Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, Mary Anning and Charles Dickens. As well as learning about rocks an fossils and symbols associated with some world religions.
Children will receive spellings on a Wednesday and they will be tested the next Wednesday. The children will continue to have daily phonics, so their spellings will reflect the phonic patterns they are learning, words from the 200 High Frequency Words List and the Year 3 and 4 statutory spelling list.
PE is on a Wednesday afternoon and gymnastics is now on a Thursday afternoon. Children need to wear school uniform and have their PE kit in school on a Wednesday which they will then wear this home. On a Thursday they need to come to school wearing PE kit with their school uniform to change into.
Finally – remember to wear something warm to school. We have our doors and windows open all of the time to ensure that there is air flow in the classroom. We also have an outdoor learning space outside of Wilsford, as the weather gets colder we will continue to use these spaces as much as we can.
I will update our class page with pictures of our learning together over the coming weeks.
I am looking forward to us having lots of fun together over the coming year.
This year children will get a reading book each Friday. If you finish it quickly, reread it so you can get to know it really well, or enjoy a library book. We will only change books on a Thursday so that we can leave them in isolation over the weekend and put them back into circulation the next week.
Have a look at the Year 3 Reading Spine of books to enjoy in Year 3, here:
We are learning about multiplication an division.
The times tables that we use in Year 3 are the 3 x table, the 4 x table and the 8 x table. These are the ones you need to know really well, I know you already know your 2, 5 and 10 x tables really well.
You can practise these using your TT Rockstarts account. (Your password is stuck into your Homework Book.) In class we have been playing Hit the Button on the Topmarks Maths website. This is another way to get really speedy with your Maths facts.
We are also counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 5s, 10s, 100s and 50s.
Many children in the class have now earned their Pen License – well done Wilsford Class for your beautiful hndwriting.
This term we will be reading The Pugs of the Frozen North and our writing will be inspired by that book.
We are learning about Animals including humans..
We will learn about nutrition, diet and similarities and differences between animals.
Out topic this term is Weather. We will measure rainfall, look at weather patterns in the UK and earn about extreme weathers around the world.
Our artwork will be inspired by Turners painting of clouds and skyscapes.
|Our class book
Our class book is Pugs of the Frozen North by Phillip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.
|Our school value
The school value that we are reflecting on this term is peace.
