Please ensure that ALL your children’s clothing is named, including trousers, skirts and shirts. When the children get changed for PE it is hard for them to find the right white shirt if it is not named.
Please also ensure that the children have a named water bottle in school every day.
Welcome back. This week in Literacy we have started our new book, The Twits by Roald Dahl.
The children have also started looking at fractions in our numeracy lessons.
Week beginning 3rd February is assessment week and the children will be completing various assessments in numeracy, reading and GPS.
In literacy we will begin to write our alternative story of the Tunnel, using the children’s ideas.
During recent weeks for art and topic the children have created their base model of a mountain and we are sure the children will really enjoy this rather messy activity.
We are looking forward to seeing the children’s grandparents on the afternoon of Thursday 6th February.
It has been a great start to the term in and the year in Year 3.
It has been great to see the children and to hear about the things that they have been up to over the holidays.
Please remember to encourage your children to access Accelerated Reader at school once they have read a book.
They are doing so well with their reading.
Please also encourage them to learn and practise their times tables using the challenges on TT Rockstars.
It is so important that they know their tables as they move through Year 3 and into Year 4.
In Literacy we have continued with the theme of myths and the children have written their own version of a myth.
In Numeracy we have been revisiting addition and subtraction to consolidate our learning from Term 1.
The children have embraced our learning on black history, and were amazed that historically not all people were treated equally.
We have also been very busy rehearsing our Christmas show.
We are really looking forward to sharing our performance with you on Friday , 13th at 9.15am.
After some super writing of a known myth the children are now going to be writing their own version in Literacy.
The children are very excited about creating their mythical creature!
On Wednesday all classes held auditions for the Christmas play so we will soon be very busy rehearsing.
In Science the children have been learning about forces and magnets which they have enjoyed.
The children are also learning about multiplication and division in Numeracy.
Please make sure your child is completing their 15 games on TTRockstar as this will help them progress further in their Numeracy work.
What a busy couple of weeks we have had in Year 3.
Our trip last week was a great success and the children did exceptionally well walking to Sheerness.
Their behaviour was superb and they were a credit to the school.
Following on from our trip the children wrote a report on Sheerness as a seaside town, linked to our topic.
In Numeracy this week we have been adding 2 and 3 digit numbers.
We planted our seeds in Science to investigate what a plant needs for growth and health and the children have been recording the results from the investigation.
It was also assessment week last week, a big well done to all the children.
This week our Literacy has been based around dragons. The children really enjoyed becoming ‘Dragonologists’, searching through our Forest School for evidence of a visiting dragon. We will now write a newspaper report using the evidence we uncovered. In Numeracy we have been adding 2 and 3 digit numbers and the children have been successfully using the column method to calculate the answer. We are looking forward to our trip to Sheerness on Tuesday (hoping for good weather).
