Year 3

Update for Week beginning : 13/3/2017

English and Maths information:

We have tied in our science to this week’s English, by reading a variety of non-fiction books to research what makes a healthy lifestyle. We have then used this information to write a non-fiction report, which we put into a healthy living leaflet.

In Maths, we have done daily circuits sessions out on the playground and recorded the results. We then put this information into a bar chart, to help us look at data over a period of time.

Other curriculum news:

Thank you for all your fantastic projects for the science fair. The children had a brilliant time sharing their ideas with all the visitors.

General Information:

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.

PE – Please ensure your child brings a full winter PE kit into school for their PE lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays for London and Wednesdays and Fridays for Paris. Children will need to bring in a pair of full length jogging bottoms and a jumper now that the temperature has dropped.
