Striving for excellence..... Learning for life
Miss Limbert, Mr Mifflin, Miss Fleetwood and Mrs Green 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.
The Knowledge Organiser for our new topic, 'Gods and Mortals' has now been posted along with ideas for activities to do at home if you so wish. Also now available are this weeks Fridge Words.
Please note this year spellings and X-Factor sheets will be sent home on Tuesday for return the following Monday.
There are currently no events.
Changing of Reading Books
We endeavour to offer the children an opportunity to change their reading books daily. On occasion this is not possible but we look to give the children chance to change as soon as we can. Many thanks.
This term our novel is 'Who Let The Gods Out' by Maz Evans. In the past this has proven a very popular text with the children as we embark on a modern day adventure accompanied by a collection of Ancient Greek gods.
Week Beginning 20/01/20
This week we will be practicing our retrieve skills on a range of questions about the adventures of Elliot and Virgo in our story.
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.
Below is a sheet of suggested home learning activities that you may wish to look at. The activities are all related to our current topic of 'Gods and Mortals'.
Please find below our topic organiser for Gods and Mortals. Each child has had a copy to take home with them.
This term the children will be writing a quest story and for non-fiction they will be writing a recount of a famous histrical event linked to the Ancient Greeks.
We are now moving into Book B which picks up from where we left Book A with a further unit on multiplication and division. We encourage you to help your child to learn their times table facts as this will be invaluable to them throughout this unit.
In Connected Curriculum this term our topic is Gods and Mortals.
From nothingness came chaos, from chaos came air and water, from air and water came life! Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light.
Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets.
Meet Theseus, the hero, and Helen of Troy, the beautiful face that launched a thousand ships.
Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus.
Then decide your own fate, when a mysterious box is found and stirs your curious mind.
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 Monday and Thursday. 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,
