In the links above you will find out all about the exciting learning that is yet to come this half term! Please have a browse.

 

At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within year 3! Enjoy!

 

Reading Books

Every child in year 3 will have a reading book and we encourage them to read with an adult at home. We will visit the library weekly and children will bring home their choice of a library book. Please ensure that their reading books and reading records are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week. Every time a child reads with an adult, they will receive a stamp on their reading chart, which will earn them certificates and book prizes.

 

P.E Days

Year 3 will have PE once a week, however, the day may change. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

Year 3 Weekly Update

 

Monday 6th July 2020

Hi everyone,

Can you believe it's July already?! It is so nice to see so many of you back with us! 

In Maths this week we are working on our four operations to make sure that we are ready for Year 4! Make sure you are confident in your 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables.

In English, we have just started to read The Iron Man. This week, we are looking at some effective language used in the book and retell the beginning of the story.

We are looking at plants in Science. We are looking at famous plant hunters! What can you find out about Sir Joseph Banks or David Douglas? 

 

The ‘Young Writers’ website are running poetry competitions as a fun activity to use for home learning. You can use the downloadable worksheet, or children can write / type their poem instead. An engaging video can be used for support.

Asalha Puja Day

Asalha Puja Day is a Buddhist festival that occurs on the full moon of the eighth lunar month, which is usually in July. The festival pays homage to the Buddha and commemorates the Buddha's first sermon and the founding of the Buddha's Sangha - four noble truths. The day is observed by donating offerings to temples and listening to sermons.
