This is just a quick note to say, "Well done!" to Dragonflies because our class had the best attendance this term. Given everything that has happened, it is great that the class had an attendance level of over 96%.
I would also like to thank those children who were so kind as to give Miss Crouch and I presents. My sons have happily volunteered to help me eat the chocolate and biscuits.
I hope that you have a lovely Christmas and a happy New Year.

Good morning. A final reminder to the group whose Christmas cards are coming from a different source and received an envelope last week.. If you would like to place an order it has to be done by 3.00pm today. Either email me at matthew.crick.graveney.kent.sch.uk with your order [please include name and quantity of each item and the cost] or send a photograph of the completed envelope. Many thanks.
Maths Year 3
We have been learning about subtraction. Today we would have been looking at how we can check our answers. This video link uses the same slides that I would have used to deliver the learning. Highlight it and copy into the address line on your browser. It should play. If it does not play I will also be posting the teaching slides as well. If you cannot print off the sheet, write the answers on what you can, photograph it and send it to me at my email address [see previous post] or send a private message on Teams.
Tip: Remember that addition is the opposite of subtraction. A good way to check subtraction is to use the numbers you have in an addition calculation. e.g.
269 - 183 = 86 So 183 + 86 = 269 Or you can do another subtraction 269 - 86 = 183

Will being posting work over the next 30 minutes.
Enjoy and be kind to your parents.
Today we welcome Miss Crouch to the school and Dragonflies in particular. We also wish Miss James all the best in her new post.
Today we held elections for our School Council. On Tuesday, each candidate had to give a short speech explaining why they would make a good representative. Today was when we voted. This took place in the school hall and Mrs Blackwell was the returning officer. We had to put a cross next to two names, then we put our ballot papers into the ballot box.
