Year 3

Update for Week beginning : 14.1.2019

Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic Christmas holiday with your family and have enjoyed getting back into school routines this week!

PE – Last week, we took the children to Kings Park for their PE lesson. Most of us had a fantastic time, however there were several children without PE kit or who had inadequate PE kit for the weather. Please ensure your child has appropriate footwear for PE as well as tracksuit bottoms and a jumper in their kit, so that they are able to take part in their lesson successfully. We will still do PE in cold and drizzly conditions and it is important that your child is prepared for this.

English information:

This week, we will turn our attention to play scripts learning how to read and perform them in style. The children will be exposed to a variety of play scripts so they can begin to identify the key features needed for this genre of writing.

During guided reading, we will be reading a play script which has been adapted for the popular story ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’. The children will be encouraged to take on different roles and perform these within our class guided reading sessions.

Maths information:

This week in maths, we will be learning about statistics. The children will understand that data can be collected in many different ways and can be presented using a variety of graphs. This week, we will focus particularly on pictograms and bar graphs.

My Maths homework: It would be useful to complete the ‘Pictograms and bar charts’ homework this week.

Other Curriculum News:

Lights! Camera! Action!

Our new project started with bang last week. The children were given a range of video clues as to what they project maybe and eventually this lead them to guessing that this half term’s project is based on music, performance, sound and light. This week, we will be allowing the children to show their creativity through music, composing their own pieces in small ensembles.

Date for your diary: Project Outcome for parents Thursday 14th February 2019 at 2pm in the school hall.
