Year 3

Update for Week beginning : 19/6/2017

English and Maths information:

In English this week we have been using ‘Talk for Writing’ to help us learn a story called ‘Charlie’s Bag’ off by heart. After this, we changed the characters, settings and plot to plan our own ‘Charlie’s Bag’ inspired stories. Next week, we will be writing our stories out in full.

In maths we have been recapping a few different areas including time, money and estimating calculations. It would be fantastic if you could continue to practise telling the time with your child at home. 

Other curriculum news:

In our project work this week we have listened to ‘Carnival of the Animals’ and ‘Peter and the Wolf’. We used our knowledge of musical vocabulary such as ‘timbre’ and ‘pitch’, to help us evaluate these pieces of music.

General Information:

PE – Please can your child remember to bring a water bottle in every day, in particular on Wednesdays when we spend the whole afternoon down at Kings Park. They should also make sure they have a sunhat and bring sun cream to put on before we leave, as there are minimal shaded areas down at the park.

Fruit snack: As part of our work as a healthy school, the children are allowed to have a fruit or vegetable snack at morning play. This can be fresh fruit or vegetables or dried fruit. Fruit winders and fruit bars are great for an addition for your child’s lunch, but they will have to wait until lunchtime to eat them!

Water Bottles – Thank you to those who have remembered their water bottles each day. Please ensure your child only brings in water and not flavoured water, squash or fizzy drinks.

Home/School books – We appreciate how much you are reading with your child at home and we enjoy reading your comments in the home/school books. Please remind your child to bring in their home/school book and reading book daily.
