We would like to share with you some of the things we have been up to in Year 3.
In Geography we have been learning about the Rainforest. We decided to use what we had learnt about the layers of the rainforest to create a group collage. We started by learning about different collage techniques, hopefully you enjoyed looking at these when we bought them home on Friday. We then had a fab afternoon in the hall working together on our giant collages.
This is one of our finished masterpieces.
An update on our planting. Both our cress and our beans are doing well. We are looking forward to an experiment with celery and carnations this week.
As always we have loved getting outside for our Cosmic lessons and have been developing our team work skills.
We used laptops and atlases to find out about the rainforests and their climate. We then prepared and presented our own weather forecast.
A FEW REMINDERS!
Our outdoor PE day is Wednesday can we please ask that children have suitable shoes on for outdoor games.
The weather is definitely getting colder. Can we please ask that children have a coat in school, it is important that we get outside for our playtime and fresh air.
Our windows in the classroom need to be open so again as the weather gets colder please ensure your child has a jumper on and layers if needed.
Reading and Spelling
We have started our Monster Phonics lessons and will be sending the children home with their weekly spellings to learn.
We are very keen to celebrate children’s reading but have noticed that some children are not managing their minimum three reads a week to an adult. We are working hard to close the gaps from the previous year, reading is vital to this. PLEASE support us by listening to your child read at home as much as possible.
