24th September 2021

The weeks are really flying by as once again another successful week has been completed.

In Maths this week we have been adding single digits to 2 and 3 digit numbers by using our number bonds to get to the next ten and then adding what is left. We will be continuing my this next week also.

In English, we wrote our final cave setting description based on the Stone Age Boy text. We edited our work and then published it today. We were very impressed with some of the handwriting – look out for handwriting pens coming soon.

Spellings: please see the home learning books (red) for a run through of the spelling rules the children have been learning this week and the tasks to complete.

School Trip- it is a super exciting week coming up next week with our trip to Butser Ancient Farm. A parent mail went out today to Hippo class, who go on Monday, to advise parents to send lunch in a disposable bag, to wear comfy weather appropriate trousers and to bring footwear suitable for muddy uneven grounds. School jumpers and tops please.

Home reading journals next week please- (yellow book).

Look out for pictures coming next week. After a quick check in at the end of the day about weekend plans with the children, it seems like you are all very busy with camping, play dates, cinema visits to name a few. Whether you’re out and about or having a well earned rest at home, we look forward to seeing you next week for more learning.

Another busy week of learning in school – well done everyone!

In Maths this week we have been adding and subtracting 10 to a 3 digit number. This was quite tricky especially when crossing the boundaries – for example 209 -10 or 398+10. This would be a good skill to continue to practise at home.

We have started applying some of the skills we have been learning in a short piece of writing about a cave. We have been using prepositions to make the writing more interesting and we have been really thinking about the exciting vocabulary that we can use too.

Spellings and Phonics – we have focused on ‘un’ and ‘dis’ in the spelling groups. The children who are in the phonics group have been looking at the ‘igh’ sound.

Home learning – WOW! We were absolutely delighted with the standard of home learning coming in from the children. They have been working really hard indeed. We looked at the home reading journals this week so this will not be due again until Wednesday 29th September (NB – inset day is 1st October and Lion school trip is 30th Sept). Remember they don’t have to have read a whole book – it might just be a chapter that they review.

RE – it has been really special to see the baptism candles and bibles coming into school  we have been keeping them safe on our prayer table to use in our learning

Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you all again next week.

Welcome back to Year Three

Wow and just like that the first week is complete. And what a busy week it has been. All the children have settled back into the school routine and school life beautifully. We are particularly impressed with the learning behaviours of all children who seem keen to learn.

In Maths this week we have been looking at 3 digit numbers and where to position them on empty numbers lines. This was quite tricky so we have been doing lots of practise!

We have started to explore our first text in English – Stone Age boy. This included drama and later in the week a chance to write some sentences using exciting vocabulary. We have been learning how to use a dictionary and a thesaurus too.

We have our school trip to Butser Ancient Farm coming up soon – 27th September for Hippos and 30th September for Lions. I know the children are really looking forward to this.

The children have been sent home today with their home learning for the week. This includes 3 spelling activities, vocabulary home learning and the first entry in the home reading journal. Times table rockstars is also readily available for some times table fun!

We look forward to welcoming you during the virtual Welcome Meeting. The links have been sent out for this meeting on 17th September.

Have a super weekend everyone. We look forward to seeing you next week for more learning.
