Mrs Homer is in class Wednesday – Friday
Things to note:-
- Reading at home is hugely important. We encourage children to read regularly their home reader and their own choice of books from home. Home reader books can be changed daily. The children are responsible for changing their own books from their colour banded box. Please continue to write in their reading record if you have read with your child or if your child has read at home independently. Raffle tickets are rewarded at the end of the week for every 5 times a child reads (please try to remember to keep reading records in book bags so we can keep a check on this).
- Homework will be handed out on a Friday and is due back in the following Friday to mark together and address any misconceptions. Please try to encourage your child to have a go at the homework. We would much rather they attempt what they can and bring that back than to not have done any at all.
- Spellings are given out on a Wednesday and will be tested the following week in class. Please spend time learning these with your child a few times during the week.
PE days this term are Monday and Thursday – please ensure children have a full kit (shorts, t-shirt and trainers). Children can also bring a hoodie or jumper for cooler weather.
As part of our topic this half term we visited Whitby. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed exploring Whitby. We visited the lifeboat museum, the harbour and the 199 Steps to Whitby Abbey. We had a fantastic time! You can view all the photos here.
This half term in Science our topic has been 'Circuits' We have been exploring the components of a circuit, creating circuits and finding out about conductors and insulators.
In Year 3 we have been reading the book 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth'. We begun our writing topic with a practical (and messy) session washing the paint off plastic toys. We followed a set of instructions to make our own Woolly mammoth and then wrote our instructions for washing the mammoth.
This week in Science we have continued our work on plants by dissecting flowers and looking at them closely through a magnifying glass. We were able to identify the parts of the plant as well as the parts of the flower head.
We have started to grow some plants. We have made a fair test to find out which plants will grow best. Here we are checking how our plants are growing.
