This term we are currently continuing to work on Stig of the Dump' as our focus text this links with our literacy genre of Discovery Stories.
In addition the children will be working on developing on their comprehension skills in particular we will be discussing Choice (this covers refers to the author's choice for writing something).
Week Beginning 16.04.18
The children will be looking at the authors use of language in Chpt 6 before moving they will be answering R.I.C questions. In addition we now have a subscription to First News' a newspaper for children and once a week the children do some comprehension work based on that weeks issue.
A great way to share a book together at home is to complete a book review and discussing elements such as favourite or most disliked character, funniest, saddest part of the story and why?
Please find below copies of a book review sheet for fiction and one for non-fiction to print off and complete.
New topic starting
Wednesday 28th February.
A big thank you to everybody who was able to make it along to our Assembly. As always the children did a great job sharing their learning, we all hope you enjoyed finding out about their topic. Even more it was amazing to have so many of you able to come back and enjoy the chance to take a longer look at the children's work and books.
The Owl day was an amazing experience. We got to meet a range of beautiful predatory birds. We also got the opportunity to stroke and even hold one of the Owls ourselves !
Please hand your homework book into the box provided on a Wednesday and you will get this back on a Thursday!
Remember to complete the X Factor example, a spelling activity and a homework grid square.

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.

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.
As a brief reminder, indoor kit is black shorts, a plain white t-shirt and plimsolls whilst outdoor kit is a pair of track suit trousers, a suitable top to go over the indoor kit and a pair of trainers.
