Maths
We have been learning about Place Value and partitioning numbers using the part part whole method. We have been exploring number bonds to 20 and using apparatus to help us with our sense of number.

English

The children have been introduced to our History topic for this term through the book ‘Ug – Boy Genius of the Stone Age’. They have been discussing how to describe a character using adjectives and creating complex sentences using a variety of conjunctions.

P.E

This week we soaked up the beautiful weather on the field playing a competitive inter-class rounders match.

Science

In Science we have begun learning about the human skeleton sharing what we already know and what we would like to find out.

Next Week

Coming up next week we will be starting our History and Geography topics where we will be learning about The Stone Age and Mountains.

Reading

Every child should have brought home a school reading book and a Reading Record this weekend and we very much encourage you to read regularly with them. Those children who have not yet been read with will be heard next week in order to properly assess their ability.

Homework

For Homework we will ask that you make a priority of reading with your child and practicing times tables. You should still have a login for Times Tables Rock Stars and the website https://www.topmarks.co.uk/  is very useful for times table games. There will be weekly spelling lists which will be found in the homework folder on this part of the website. There will also be another topic based activity. The homework will be uploaded by Monday evening for that week and spellings will be tested on the following Monday morning.

Thank you for being so prompt at dropping off and picking up your children, this is greatly appreciated.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

Settling In

The children have settled very well into school life again and we are very proud of the way that they have been so receptive to the different routines. We are making sure that they are washing their hands regularly to keep everyone safe.

This Week

The children enjoyed listening to and making a comic strip of the West African story about Anansi and the Yam Hills. In keeping with this theme we made spider webs from sticks and wool and Jitter Bugs which actually moved! Well some moved, others were a little reluctant to due to technical problems! However, the children learnt about electrical circuits and had much fun through this creative activity.

Growth Mind-Set

Having a Growth Mind-Set is our school theme for September and one child certainly showed this when his Jitter Bug refused to move by saying ‘Well, it doesn’t matter because we can still look at them’. I’m sure you will all agree they do look fantastic.

Reading

Every child should have brought home a school reading book and a Reading Record this weekend and we very much encourage you to read regularly with them. Those children who have not yet been read with will be heard next week in order to properly assess their ability.

Friday 4th September

We were so happy to meet your beautiful children today and want to say a big thank you for sending them in looking so smart. We so enjoyed getting to know them and we hope that the children enjoyed the activities we had prepared for them to do. We are getting used to washing our hands and sanitising regularly and the new timings for lunch. We are sure that these new routines will become second nature very soon.

Just a few points to mention:

  • Please make sure that you provide your child with a healthy snack for break time as the school does not provide any fruit in Key Stage 2.
  • Contrary to an earlier email, we do not want children to bring in their own pencil cases, we are providing the children with named pencils and pens and other stationary equipment is also provided and being cleaned when necessary.
  • Please don’t put too much in your child’s lunch box. The children have a limited time in which to eat their lunches and some were finding it difficult to get through everything in their box!
  • Please could we ask you to make sure that your child’s hands are washed before you leave the house in the morning and that their hands are washed immediately on entering the house after being picked up from school at the end of the day.
  • Please also just check if all of your child’s personal items of clothing, including shoes and P.E. Kit are named clearly. A permanent marker pen is sufficient for this purpose.
  • We have sent home a Contact Book for your child. Please use it to communicate any messages and please look out for any messages which we may have written regarding your child.

We would like to wish you a very relaxing weekend and look forward to seeing the children again on Monday.

 

Best wishes,

The Year 3 Team
