Year 3

Update for Week beginning : 19.11.2018

English information:

This week, for our final week of WW1 learning, the children will be immersed in the emotion of WW1 poetry. Year 3 will read and perform some traditional WW1 poems as well as write and perform some of their own. The figurative language features the children will learn and be encouraged to use this week are:

  • Onomatopoeia (bang, crash, boom)
  • Similes (War is like a broken heart)
  • Rhyme

We look forward to being able to share some of the children’s poetry with you at parents evening.

Maths information:

This week we will continue to learn about fractions. Our attention will turn to learning the following skills:

  • Adding and Subtracting fractions with the same denominators
  • Comparing fractions
  • Ordering fractions

To compliment the learning we are doing in class, it would be beneficial for your child to complete the ‘Fraction Calculations’ homework.

Other Curriculum News:

Thank you so much for all of your engagement with our WW1 experience day. The children’s costumes were fantastic, they really looked the part. Keep an eye out on the website homepage for some photos of our day.

This week, the children will have an opportunity to pursue a passion of theirs by engaging in a WW1 workshop of their choice. The children will choose from a range of subjects such as, dance, art, creative writing, trench life, DT and many more.

PE – Now that the weather is turning colder, please ensure that your child has appropriate weather-proof PE kit in school.  We will still do PE in cold and drizzly conditions and it is important that your child is prepared for this.

This half term, we have an additional PE lesson on a Thursday morning.
