Amethyst Class

Friday 9th September 2021

It has been a wonderful week back with the children and they have continued to impress me throughout! 

We have started delving in to our topic of the Ancient Egyptians and this week we conducted a tomato mummification experiment! We will be monitoring the results each week to see the changes!

If you wish to conduct this experiment at home for some fun over the weekend, please find the instructions below. 

Have a lovely weekend!


Miss Newns

Yr 3 and 4 Meet the Teacher

Hello and welcome!


It is so wonderful to be back and starting a new year! I hope you all had a fantastic summer and have enjoyed a well-deserved rest!

I look forward to getting to know all the new Amethyst children and families over the next few weeks, as well as delving in to some new learning and hopefully returning to a bit of normality compared to last year!


As with every new year, there comes lots of new things to get used to and I have to say, I have already been blown away by my lovely new class! They have come back to school with lots of enthusiasm and curiosity for learning as well as finding their feet quickly in their new classroom. Although, as you can see from the photos below, our classroom briefly transformed in to an Egyptian tomb on Friday! We had a lot of fun exploring the tombs with torches and trying to find the hidden treasures that the Ancient Egyptians had hidden! Thankfully it is back to a classroom now, ready for us to continue delving in to our topic!


Please find below a welcome letter (which has lots of details about some of the practicalities of Year 3) and a topic web (showing what we will be learning over the term). There will be a 'meet the teacher' session this week on Wednesday 8th September at 9:15am, which will give more details about the term to come. This will be online as well for those that can not make it and the PowerPoint will be uploaded to the class webpage as well.


Should you have any questions or need to contact me, please don't hesitate to email the office, pop a note in the reading diary or catch me briefly after school.


I look forward to working with all your children and hope they are as excited for the year ahead as I am!


Best wishes,


Miss Newns
