The children have had a great return to school. We have been very busy this week reading Grendel: A Cautionary Tale About Chocolate and comparing it to the myth of King Midas. Next week, we will start to write our own stories using direct speech and inverted commas. In history, we have started learning about the Ancient Greeks. We have learnt about city states and different forms of government. In maths, we are continuing with fractions and will start looking at tenths next week.
Thank you for all the jars that have come in so far. Next week. we are going to start growing some plants for our science topic this term about plants. Thank you also for all the swimming kits. The children had a successful first week and we will continue with swimming next week. It is so nice to be able to get out of school again and we are planning a trip for this term.
I will send a Dojo to launch the new reading rewards which the children have voted on. This will start next week.
Hope you have a good Friday and a good weekend.
Miss Keen and the Year 3 Team
