Striving for excellence..... Learning for life
Miss Limbert, Mr Mifflin, Miss Fleetwood and Ms Chesire would like to say a huge hello to all of the children in Year Three.
Here is our web page which over this year will be a place to find information about and see examples of our learning.
Remember to check back often as this page will be updated regularly!
Changing of Reading Books
Children have the opportunity to change their books daily. Many thanks.
Reading books will be issued shortly as soon as they are fully audited and the library system is updated.
In guided reading this term our first text is 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Week Beginning 10.09.18
We are reading and discussing the opening chapter with a focus on character and setting.
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.
News about the exciting changes to homework will be shared shortly.
In the meantime, reading and times tables practice are always invaluable skills to work on.
This half term the children will be exploring characters and how the author goes about creating characters for us to love and hate. We will be looking at how character creation is not just about a good description. The children will look at familiar characters before moving on to create one for themselves.
Maths this Year we are looking forward to starting our new Math scheme. The first unit is all about understanding place vale and what number is all about.
We have started the X-Factor and soon the sheets will come home, please help the children by practicing the example at home and then return it to school.
In Connected Curriculum this term our topic is 'Scrumdiddlyumptious'.
Tuck in and enjoy a delicious journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, venerable vegetables and tantalising treats.
Work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with a vegetable orchestra or become a fruity sculptor.
Find exciting recipes and write your own too.
Then get busy in the kitchen making tasty dishes from across the world and discover how good food helps you to grow fit and strong.
And here's food for thought -if you are what you eat...what does that make you?
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.
Many Thanks the Year Three Team
This term, PE days have changed in Year Three and will take place on two days per week.
Both classes are having PE on a Wednesday and Friday.
Please ensure that children have kit in school each day of the week.
If possible leave earrings at home on these days , if this is not possible they will need to be removed before or tape needs to be provided so that they can be covered,
