Book Reviews

Thank you.

This year Year Three will be working  as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Thankfulness". Year Three were the first to promote their value through our Harvest assembly and Foodbank collection. We were impressed with how thoughtful, kind and generous the pupils were and how well they engage with the world around them. They are a credit to their families. Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to be a courageous in class, on the playground and at home. If your child impresses you with how they use their manners at home do share this with us by making a note in their Boomerang book so that we can celebrate it in class.
Christians read the Bible and are encouraged by these verses,
1Thessalonians 5:16-18Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 

Sherrier C of E Primary School News

Year Three

Please watch this space for news and event information.
Thankfulness at Sherrier School 
   In schools there are many opportunities to be generous with time and support, and many people who work in schools or support them give above and beyond the call of duty.  It is always important to remember to say thank you—especially for those things or those people that get taken for granted!     
   Saying “please and thank you” a matter of manners and is a real sentiment in your school life?
   Celebration and joyfulness built into the life of the school which is always clear on a Monday morning's Star of the Week
   Pupils are polite to all  adults in school such as cooks and playtime supervisors who are part of school life
   Pupils encouraged to be thankful for more than just material possessions

This term in Year Three:

We are currently putting the finishing touches to our very own Discovery stories before we move onto looking at a Portal story. More will be revealed shortly. (16/04/18)

This half term in English, children in Year Three will be writing a discovery story. We are using the story 'The Egg' by M.P. Robertson as our starting point.

 Then in the later half of the term the children will be creating a discovery story involving a mystery egg that they have discovered.

 

Maths this half term, moves onto measurement. We begin with length and will then move onto mass and capacity later in the term. The children will be looking at the different units of measure, how to vonvert then and how to apply their learning to real life situations through word problems.

Please continue to practice times tables with your child by completing the example sent home weekly!

Well Done to all children in the X Factor for this half term! Keep up the great work. You are all superstars!

 

In Connected Curriculum this half term we will continue work on our topic  Tribal Tales.

We will be comparing living now compared to the Stine Age, as well as looking at housing and making some Stone Age clay pots!

Continuing with our outdoor learning we will be looking to going on a foraging expedition in the nature area.

 

Please find a copy of this weeks Spelling words below. To be updated shortly.

PE KIT - could you please try to ensure that your child has a full indoor and outdoor PE kit in school all term.

Currently there are children each week who do not have any or the correct kit to allow them to fully enjoy their PE lesson.
