Term 1 Week 7

Year 3 have had a wonderful week. All assessments have now been completed and the children have been credited for their determination throughout.

Both classes are working on writing their own non-chronological reports and have shown enjoyment in expressing their amazing factual knowledge of the human body into paragraphs and using the various report features. These will be carried on over the following week.

In Maths, the children’s place value knowledge has really improved, and we are now getting ready to move onto addition and subtraction in the new term.

Both classes have enjoyed their science lessons this week, whereby we have experimented with our different muscles and moved onto food hygiene. We have some exciting lessons planned for next week, during Big Health and Happiness Week so watch this space!

Moving onto next week being ‘Health and Happiness Week!’ The year group have got some very exciting activities planned related to mindfulness and wellbeing. Please can we ask that waterproofs and wellies are brought in in a named plastic bag on Wednesday, as both classes will be undertaking Forest School lessons. All children need to have a full PE kit, every day next week, as there are a lot of activities which will require PE uniform. If you have any questions about Health and Happiness week, please do not hesitate to ask your class teacher.

Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week for the last week of Term 1!

Term 1 Week 6

Hooray for the weekend!

The Year 3 children have had a very busy week this week and have done very well to keep motivated and try their best in all their assessments that have taken place this week. Miss Turner and Miss Carter are very pleased with them all.

In English, the children have enjoyed carrying out research for their non-chronological report writing. The DK Find Out website has proven to be very popular. In Maths, the children have worked hard to partition numbers, some proving to show their teachers that numbers can be partitioned in lots of different ways.

3ST enjoyed their music lesson this week and are on their ways to becoming recorder professionals. 3EC are one step ahead with their human body knowledge and can now tell you the different muscles found in our bodies (don’t worry 3ST this is Mondays job!).

Both teachers are enjoying hearing about the children’s reading at home and 3ST’s poem home learning has been excellent this week.

Have a wonderful weekend (shame we won’t be able to watch and support England in the world cup).

Term 1 Week 5

How is it Friday already?

We have had an excellent week in Year 3. The children have been problem solving with their extended place value knowledge and writing impressive sentences to explain their answers. It was wonderful to hear how impressed Mrs Meredith was with Year 3’s Maths knowledge. In English, we have completed our work with the Cops and Robbers peom and we are now starting to look at non-chronological reports relating to our theme learning.

Both classes have enjoyed their theme learning this week as well as RE. 3ST were lucky to observe some artefacts relating to our learning. Both classes have also been made aware of Times Table Rock Stars and they have enjoyed competing in their first battle set by Mrs Meredith. More battles will be set in the following weeks and don’t worry all will be informed to make it fair!

Thank you for your on going support with home learning and providing healthy snacks for break time.

Enjoy your weekend!

Term 1 Week 4

What a bit of a wet week it has been, but a good one!

In English, the children have been working hard to write impressive character descriptions using the skills we have been recently learning. Miss Turner and Miss Carter are thrilled to see how much the children have enjoyed the Cops and Robbers book.

In Maths, we have been learning to add 1, 10 and 100s to 2 and 3 digit numbers. The place value counters have gone down a treat and it has been nice to see the children helping each other out.

We are enjoying being scientists and learning more about the skeleton and will be soon learning more about different parts of the body, including muscles and joints.

We would like to remind children to please bring in their spelling books ready for their test on Monday and then new spellings will be given on the following day (Tuesday). Also if the children would like to change their LRC book, please remind them to bring in their current book on their LRC day (Monday for 3EC and Wednesday 3ST). One last thing, please ensure your child is completing their Maths and Reading homework each week. Reading homework (which is bug club this week) can contribute to their weekly reading rocketeer collection. If there are any problems with bug club, please let your class teacher know.

Have a lovely weekend.

Miss Turner and Miss Carter.


Term 1 Week 3

Year 3 have had another brilliant week.  We have been working hard getting to grips with the grammatical skills used in the Cops and Robber’s books, with 3ST enjoying using similes! In Maths we have been using the place value counters to fully understand adding 1s, 10s and 100s to 3 digit numbers and have done well to explain our reasoning. We have enjoyed learning about the skeleton this week, although some of the skeleton figures initially looked ‘interesting’ but after some learning we were able to complete the whole skeleton.

Please take the time to check for guided reading homework, maths homework and spellings set this week.

Have a wonderful weekend and hopefully this sunny weather continues.

Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome back to another fantastic year of learning!

Year 3 have had a wonderful start to their year and are settling in well. Miss Turner and Miss Carter are very impressed with their positive attitude towards their learning and behaviour. We have had a busy week, starting our new English and Theme topics, which the children have really enjoyed.

On Wednesday, both classes took part in their Sensational Start where the children were challenged to create what they thought was a healthy kebab using various food groups. Who knew it was OK to have one to two jelly babies in their diet! Of course, the children were thrilled with this news.

Next week, you will receive a welcome letter outlining routines, homework and expectations for the year in Year 3. Guided reading sessions will also begin next week.

Please can we ensure all PE kits are in school by Monday and that all clothing, water bottles and lunch boxes are named accordingly.

We hope you have a restful weekend and will see you all on Monday.
