Week 4

Well I think Autumn has definitely arrived this week!

A few children this week have commented that they were cold as we are continuing to keep our windows open for ventilation, can we ask that children have a jumper or cardigan in school.

This week we’ve enjoyed learning about diaries, sharing extracts, reading Diary of a Worm and some of us had fun reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid that someone bought in from home. It was great to see so many children buying diaries from the school bookshop on Friday.

The children showed great team work this week, becoming research expects. Working as a small team they researched how an element of history had changed during the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages. They then presented their findings to the rest of the year group.

Your children should all have bought home their Wonde logins, if you have any problems with getting online please let us know and we will do our best to sort it.

Thank you for your continued support with home reading this week. Both classes this week had an increase on last week.

Crocodiles had 139 reads and Alligators 119!

As always please come and see us if there is anything we can help with. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Another great week!

We are lucky enough for the next few weeks to have a teacher and a team of PE ambassadors coming in from Park Community School to deliver our PE lesson on a Monday. They did a mini circuits session with the children this week and moving forward they will be working on gymnastics, which the children are really excited about. It is important that the children come in wearing their PE kit, we had a few girls in skirts this week.

We have included a few photos this week from our Science lesson. We were looking at friction and testing different surfaces to see which was best for a toy car to move on.

We finished reading Leon and the Place Between this week. Our quote of the week has got to have been, “that was the most amazing book we’ve ever, ever read”

Thank you for your support with home reading this week. Our inter class competition between Crocodiles and Alligators was a close call. Crocodiles had 122 reads and Alligators 114!

As always please come and see us if there is anything we can help with. Thank you for your support.

Wow! Where have the last two weeks gone?

We have been so busy the time has flown. All of the children have settled well into our new routines and expectations and have come back full of enthusiasm. I had a letter this week from one of the authors who visited school for our Reading Festival and he praised Year 3 for their behaviour and engagement in their learning.

Hopefully, you’ve heard all about the Warren Park Circus day we held to introduce our writing unit on ‘Leon and the Place Between’. The children had great fun walking on bucket stilts, juggling, using ribbon batons and eating popcorn. They were then amazed by our ‘magical’ visit from Silly Scott and sat transfixed by his tricks.

It’s not all fun in Year 3 though as we have also started a history unit on the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age and our Science unit looking at the forces of pushing and pulling.

To support your child with all the hard work they are doing in school, we are hoping that you can support at home. We will be sending your child home this week with their spellings to learn; these will be tested in school on a Friday and new ones given out for the following week.

Your child will also be bringing home a Times Table Record Book. In the Juniors, we ask that the children practice their multiplication tables several times a week. This can be done on paper, by playing games, using Times Table Rock Stars or any online educational games such as Topmarks.

We are asking that the children bring into school both their Home Reading and Times Table Record books every day.

Reminder: PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please send your child in wearing shorts or tracksuit bottoms, school coloured t-shirt and sensible foot wear.

Please come and see us if there is anything we can help with. Thank you for your support.
