Things to note:-
- Reading at home is hugely important. We encourage children to read regularly. Reading books can be changed daily - please make sure to sign the reading record to show that your child has read otherwise reading books will not be changed. The children are responsible for adding them to the changing box on a morning and are reminded by us to put them in if they have read at home.
- Reading stages are checked half-termly to see if children are ready to move on. We have to ensure children have read a range of books of different genres on the stage before they move up.
- Homework will be handed out on a Friday and is due back in on Thursday to mark together. 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 any done at all.
- Spellings are given out on a Wednesday and will be tested the following week in class.
- Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars logins are stuck in the children’s reading records to access at home. These provide good opportunities to practice the work we have done in school.
- PE days this term are Tuesday and Wednesdays – please ensure children have a full kit (shorts, t-shirt and trainers). Children can also bring a hoodie or jumper for cooler weather if outside.
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.
