I hope you have had a good week. Autumn has very definitely arrived.
We are nearly at the end of our place value unit. The children are beginning to have a much better understanding of three-digit numbers. In English, we have started to look at how biographies are written and we will continue this next week. In Science, we have drawn a diagram for our investigation. A specialist teacher came in on Monday to give them a French lesson and she will return every week. They have been practising learning to say their name. We have started our learning on Prehistoric Britain by learning about how life started on Earth.
Next week, we are having a Stone Age afternoon. Please bring in boots for Wednesday if it looks wet. I will send a reminder on Dojo. On Tuesday, please bring in a small, wheeled vehicle to explore friction. Home learning will come home on Friday. Please complete by Thursday. A big thank you to everyone who completed it this week.
We have been extremely impressed with the children's continuing independence.
Hope you have a good Friday and weekend!
I hope you have had a great week. There have been lots of exciting things happening this week. We finished writing our poems about famous paintings and we finished our block on computing by having a scavenger hunt around school to find devices that make up the school computing network. In RE, we continued our learning about the Christian creation story. In our class assembly, we look at resilience and what it means to be resilient. I have been awarding Dojo points for children that have shown this. The children had another PE lesson focusing on team work today.
Next week, we will start learning about the Stone Age in history. We will also start learning about biographies in English and in maths we will continue our place value learning. We will have French on Monday from a specialist teacher. Home learning books will be coming home on Fridays with home learning. Please write the reading in the back of the book.
The children have worked extremely hard this week and are showing more Independence and resilience.
Hope you have a great weekend.
The children have had a great week. They are getting to be much more organised and independent as the week has gone on. They have been enjoying learning team games in PE, finding out about different materials and where they come from in science and learning about networks in computing. In English, we have been reading and performing poems and we have started learning about place value in maths. Ms Boyce is going to let you know what they've been up to in art and music tomorrow.
Next week, they will be writing their own poems and learning about place value with three digit numbers. We are continuing our learning about networks and in science we will learn about variables. They will also learn more about the Christian creation story in RE.
Homework will go out on Friday. Please return by Thursday.
We have been very proud of them this week for all their hard work. Hope you enjoy the rest of the week and have a great weekend.
The Friday blog will be going out early on Thursday evening!
The children have made a great start to the new term and should be very proud of themselves. We have been busy getting used to being back together with other years groups during assemblies and play times as well as getting used to the new year 3 classroom. We have been learning about well-being in PSHE and thinking about our own strengths. We have made paper chains with our own strengths on and are going to be linking these together with other classes. They have been focusing on the Olympics during assembly time and enjoyed learning skills for hockey, cricket, basketball and tennis during our PE lesson
All the children will take home home learning tomorrow and their logins for Number Bots and Times Table Rock Stars. We are waiting for the new reading diaries to arrive so please record reading on the piece of paper attached to their home learning.
Next week, we will begin our maths unit on place value. We have completed some short assessment activities in preparation already. We are looking at a book of poetry based on paintings next week in English and we will start our computing unit. The children will also be having art, music and French with Ms Boyce every week.
We are looking forward to a fun term.
