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.

 

Reading Focus:

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 16/03/20

As we now approach the end of our amazing novel, 'Who et The Gods Out' we will be using this week to look more at using inference and explanation.

Book Reviews 

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.


Fiction Review Sheet

Non-Fiction Review Sheet

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 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.

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 Friday 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:

This term the children will be writing a quest story and for non-fiction they will be writing a recount of a famous historical event linked to the Ancient Greeks.

 

We are now progressing through Book B and are currently looking at length before moving onto fractions.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.

Last Half Term in Y3

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,

Your child will need to hand their homework in every Monday and it will usually be issued on a Tuesday.

We endeavour to offer the children to change their book everyday, usually after lunch, however sometimes this is not possible but will be done as soon as possible.

Have any questions or queries? Please do not hesitate to speak to us at the door or drop us an email or tweet using the addressed below.
