In addition to Thursday 6th October being our American Lunch it is also our colourful day in order to raise money for CAFOD.
In year 3 we are going to be wearing colourful hats! You may have a colourful hat already or you may want to make one for the day. Here are some ideas:
These hats were mainly made out of card from cereal boxes and wrapping paper!
We would ask that if you wish to wear your hat that you bring in a small donation for CAFOD.
Year 3 Team
This week in our English the children have been really excited about their learning this week. They have been learning to persuade using different sentence types and exciting language. See if you can do some persuasive writing at home!
In our maths we have been exploring mental multiplication and division. The times tables we have been using for this were our 2, 4 5, and 10’s. Next week we will be continuing to explore this idea using our 3’s as well. Try practicing at home this weekend.
We have become really excited in our Science where we have explored magnetism including magnetic materials around the class and attraction and repulsion. What magnetic things can you discover around your house.
We hope you have a lovely weekend exploring more learning!
Year 3 Team
The children have settled back into the routine of school life this week and have shown a real engagement with our learning. Through our first experience of home learning this week it appears that the Stone Age has been a big hit and we’ve had many stone age tools being created and shown to the class (fortunately no one has been practicing their neolithic hunting techniques!) A very big thank you to the children for putting so much hard work in.
You will find that there are new activities on MyMaths and Abacus this week, if you experience any problems please do tell a member of staff. For those trying to access MyMaths through an I-Pad, I am informed that you will need to download the ‘Puffin Academy’ App.
This week in our maths we have looked at adding and subtracting hundreds and ones to a three digit number e.g. 300+455 and 532-4. In our English we have been writing instruction texts and thought about how we could use conjunctions. Perhaps you could write instructions for someone in your house for how to set the table or how to tidy a bedroom.
We hope you really enjoy your learning at home and are looking forward to another wonderful week of learning.

As you will know both classes had a very exciting time at Butser Ancient Farm. We were very lucky and the weather has been kind to us on both days, allowing us to make the most of the day. Look at the pictures below to see the fun we had! (More pictures to follow!)
We hope that you all had a thoroughly enjoyable summer with lots of adventures had! We have been excited to start our new learning adventures this year. The children have begun to settle into new routines and seen the expectations of year 3. We are happy to say that the children are already rising to the challenge!
As you already know, our welcome meeting is on Wednesday 14th where you will receive more information about the year and any trips that are planned. You will also have received information about our Butser Ancient Farm trips happening on the 15th (Hippos) and 16th (Lions), look to the blog next Friday to see photos of what the children have been up to.
