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:

At the start of this half term the children will complete their Portal Stories before moving on to our new genre. This term we will be looking at Greek Myths working towards creating our very own Myth. In addition we will be focusing on writing detailed character descriptions which can be incorporated into our myth.

Maths this half term, moves onto money and time We begin with time and will then move onto time after.The children will be looking at the different values and how they compare, adding and subtracting money, calculating change then solving money based word problems. Under time we spend the first few sessions looking at telling the time with different levels of accuracy before moving on to looking at periods of elapsed time and how to convert them.

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!
