Mountfields Lodge School




Onyx have continued to be A-MAZING! (as we say in the classroom) We are picking up the pace and showing Miss Clark what brilliant Year 3's we can be! 


We have been learning lots more about Roman's including all about the houses they lived in and roads they traveled along. We are looking forward to learning all about the Roman Baths and mosaics in the final weeks of 'Were the Romans Really Rotten?'


We have settled into swimming well and are making such fantastic progress! We are tired after our hour long lesson but the enjoyment we have and the progress we have already made makes it well worth it. 


All children now have a TTRS login to practice online at home. This is a great way to improve recall of times tables so please encourage your child to use this fantastic resource. 


A few reminders. 

Please can you help your child to remember the following.

P.E - A full P.E kit - this includes an outdoor kit (long trousers and long sleeved top) - It is getting colder each week and we go out in all weathers!

READING - Reading diaries MUST be handed in on a Monday morning. Children MUST be reading a minimum of 5 times a week - This does not have to be with an adult, independent reading is encouraged also. 

SPELLINGS - Spellings are handed out every 2 weeks on a Thursday and tested on a Tuesday. We will be testing the children tomorrow (2nd October) and handing new ones out Thursday (4th October). These will then be tested on Tuesday (16th October) and so on. 



Miss Clark 

Romans - 3 in a row Homework. Due Tuesday 30th October.


Wow! What a great start to the new school year. We have been busy training as Roman soldiers, getting stuck into Power Maths and making lots of new friends in our new class. 

Miss Clark is really proud of us for having positive attitudes, always being ready to learn and excellent manners! It's going to be a fantastic year :) 

Welcome to Onyx!


We are really enjoying being in KS2! We have lots of exciting opportunities and are continually encouraged to be independent learners. We like to have a laugh and a joke but continue to work hard too! We have got lots of exciting things to learn this year! 

Parents are always welcome to come and have a chat with Miss Clark if there are any concerns or questions.

A few reminders:

We have Outdoor P.E every Friday and Swimming every Wednesday (until February). After that we will have indoor P.E once a week. Please make sure you have the correct kit every week.

Our homework is always issued on a Thursday and a letter will always be issued with this to explain the tasks. Spellings are issued every other week and we have a check up every two weeks on a Tuesday.

All children will have access to the School Library and can have two books out at a time. We visit regularly in class and children can visit one lunchtime a week too.

All children will have log-ins for Times Table Rock Stars to encourage then to develop quick recall of their multiplication facts.

Thank you to all who contributed to our Tesco token collection...we await the outcome of all your efforts...
