Happy New Year to you all. I hope that you had a relaxing break. This week we have continued with learning how to multiply numbers, this time in a more formal written way. In English we are learning how to write a warning story. During this topic we shall investigate the figurative language of similes and metaphors. We shall use these to describe our dragon.
Our topic this term is Stone to Iron Age Britain. This was started with the children creating some cave art in the style of Pre-Historic Man. We looked at a variety of photographs of art that has been found around the world and, using the colours we saw, we created our own. this is now on display in our very own cave in the classroom! Please feel free to come and take a look during our Book Talk sessions on a Tuesday morning.

My apologies for not updating sooner. The children are all settling back into work after the half term. We are coming to the end of our Maths unit of addition and subtraction and will be moving onto multiplication and division by the end of next week. To tie in with this, we will begin our weekly times tables tests. All children will start on their 2 x table. they will be tested on everything from zero x two up to twelve x two. I will give every child a little book to help them with their learning.
In English, we are almost at the end of our journey/meeting tale which are all looking very good. In Science, we will be moving onto Light very soon.
In P.E. we had a very special lesson on Monday when Mr Bates taught us how to play lacrosse! However, some children nearly missed out because they did not have their kit! Can you please ensure that your child has their kit, fully named, with them in school all the time, thank you. We will continue to do P.E. outdoors at least once a week, as long as it is dry, therefore, if you could please include a hoodie or sweatshirt, along with a pair of jogging bottoms to keep warm, I would very much appreciate it.
I am looking forward to seeing you next week for parent’s evenings.

Another great week in Year 3! This week saw the beginning of our new clubs with lots of children taking part in Dodgeball, Football, Gymnastics and the Thursday evening Lego club.
In class we have continued learning how to write a recount and this draws to a close on Monday of next week. We are also coming to the end of our first Maths topic of place value (the building blocks of all Maths learning). We will move onto Addition and then Subtraction.
I have been blown away by the support you give your children when learning their spellings, as their scores this week were incredible! Two house points earned for every child!
I do owe you an apology though, I sent home the blue Accelerated Reading cards and these were meant to stay in school. I have now collected these in again, if you wonder where they have disappeared to. Just to remind you, the Accelerated Reading evening will be held on Wednesday 2nd October. Drinks and nibbles will be served from 5:30 with a 6pm start. If you wish to attend, please complete the form to advise us (for numbers for catering). If you have mislaid the letter, please contact the office for a replacement. I shall be attending and look forward to seeing you there.
And finally, the most exciting piece of news…your children have been incredibly lucky, in that they now have the opportunity to learn how to play the ukulele! We have a visitor coming in every Wednesday afternoon to teach the children (as it’s not in my skill set!). Ask your children about it, I know they had an amazing time.
Until next week, thank you for having wonderful children and for supporting their achievements.
Welcome to Year 3 – 2019-20
What an incredible first few days we had! We took part in a football taster session and a basketball taster session, all in preparation for our clubs over the next few weeks.

On Wednesday afternoon, as a Stunning Start to our India topic, we all tried some Indian food! Most of us thought is was delicious, however, a few of us felt it was a little spicy.
For those of you unable to attend the ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening, or for those of you who would like a quick reminder, I have attached the slide show I used. To clarify, I have had to change our PE lesson, these will now be on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
