Year 3

Update for Week beginning : 26/6/2017

English and Maths information:

In English this week we have continued to develop our story writing skills by applying our ‘Talk for Writing’ story knowledge into our own stories. We used our setting description work and sensory writing practise to continue to build a varied and rich vocabulary in our narrative writing.

In maths we have been covering a variety of areas. First we looked at measuring and estimating in cm and mm, then we covered working out fractions of amounts and equivalent fractions. Some of us have also been applying this knowledge into a problem solving context.  

Other curriculum news:

Next week we will be continuing to work on our plays by writing our playscripts and learning them off by heart. Alongside this, the children will be making masks or puppets for their characters. It would also be fantastic if your child could bring in a basic costume to go with their animal character. This can be as simple as a coloured t-shirt e.g. an orange t-shirt for a lion.

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.
