Welcome Meeting

Hello all – tomorrow there will be a welcome meeting in Year 3 at 3.30. We have some key dates and information for you and would love to see as many of you there as possible!

This is a nice short week (Friday is an INSET day!) for the children who have been working exceptionally hard this term already. They have immersed themselves in our Stone Age Topic and have enjoyed finding out about magnetism – a topic children always find fascinating. Children what do you think would happen if I hung a magnet from our classroom ceiling by a piece of string? Use your critical and curious skills to think about what you have found out about the north and south poles!

Today we will visit the school library – each class takes it in turn to listen to a story and select two books of their choice. Please encourage your child to share these books with you and remind them to return them on a Wednesday if they need to be changed!

Hope to see you tomorrow,

Kind Regards

Mrs. Luter, Mr. Chant and Miss Honeywell

Week 2 in Year 3!

Firstly my apologies for no update last week! It seems to have got lost! Possibly because Mr. Chant and I have had some technical issues!

So first of all I’d like to welcome all the children back to school – the first day of term seems like a long time ago but it was lovely to see the children so happy and refreshed. We hope that you all had restful holidays with your families. It was great to share so much holiday home learning!

All children should have a reading book and two library books. Please continue to read regularly with your children as it really does make all the difference with their progress. We have also sent home a home learning pyramid for ideas for activities based on our topic – ‘The Stone Age’. We are hoping to have Abacus updated in the next few days but again please bare with us whilst we sort some technical issues. Bug Club has lots of books available for children to read.

We have been learning how to write instructions in English, alongside daily spelling and handwriting lessons. In maths we are consolidating and extending place value knowledge. As I am sure that you know children are only expected to work with numbers to 100 in Key Stage One but the children have readily accepted their next step in the place value challenge and have begun to work with 3 digit numbers.

In RE we have been learning all about our responsibility to God’s creation. Please visit the RE blog to see regular updates of our learning in RE. Here are some of our creation posters that show how and why we protect God’s creation.

We hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing you at our Year 3 welcome meeting on Thursday 21st at 3.30.

Best wishes,

Mrs. Luter, Mr. Chant, Miss Honeywell
