Year 3

Update for Week beginning : 27/3/2017

English and Maths information:

This week we have been linking our learning in English to our project on the Anglo-Saxons. We have been focusing on writing in paragraphs and editing and improving our own work.

In Maths, we have been using our ‘Pac-Man’ angle eaters to find right angles around the classroom and identify if angles are acute or obtuse (smaller than 90 degrees or greater than 90 degrees). We have then linked a right-angle to a quarter turn and how many of these are in half and full turns.

Other curriculum news:

We had great fun working with Gillian from Poole museum, who lead a brilliant, interactive workshop on Anglo-Saxon Britain. See the posts board for more information and photos of this!

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.
