Thank you to all of the parents that came to stay and learn.

Friday 20th May, round - up:

Rylee: We were telling a Stone Age story in dance. We had 2 lions and a hunter. The hunter killed the lions with a spear.

Finally, a huge congratulations to ALL of year 3 on receiving the 'Achievement of the Week' award for their behaviour when we had a visitor in class!

Well done to all of you. We are very proud!!

Today we have been embedding our knowledge of the Stone Age - through dance. I wonder if you can notice the story that each freeze frame is telling?

Need a new suit or football kit?

You heard it here first! I do believe that we have some future fashion designers in year 3. I was amazed at some of their designs!

Emmanuel: I enjoyed writing my super hero story because we had to use similies and adjectives.

Friday Round-up: 06.05.2022

 

Well, the children had an amazing day, on Tuesday, at the Natural History Museum. They were very excited to talk about their day.

The most popular attraction was the mechanical T-Rex. Thankfully it had been fed before we got there and we were able to return ALL of the children safely! :)

 

Somebody has already asked his mum if they can go back as a family because there was so much more to see, that we did not have time for. (It's a great day out and it's free entry!! Also, if you live in Bexley or Greenwich Borough, you are entitled to free travel for 5-11 year olds as long as they have a Zip Oyster Card. You can apply for these on the TFL website.)

 

Friday round-up:

 

Anthony: A 2D shape is something you can't pick up, a 3D shape is something you can pick up.

 

Alba: In P.E. we were learning to throw a ball accurately, overarm.

 

Jadesola: In RRS we learned about Article 29 and how Northwood School teaches us skills for the future. 

 

Nathaniel: I learned about the Iron Age - you can use shape iron into anything you want, if you heat it over a fire.

 

 

Congratulations to:

Imisi

Thank you for your continued support.

As a rule, I don't like to give homework during half-term, as I feel this is valuable time to spend with your family. However, I know that some of you would enjoy the challenge of holiday homework. So, I would like you to make a tally chart of all the friends and family that you see over the holidays. Once you have collected that data, have a go at making your own bar chart or table.

 

Have fun and stay safe!

See you all on Tuesday 2nd November.

Welome to Autumn Term 2021

 

Welcome back to your new class. Your teachers are Mrs Kiddell, Mrs Wade and Ms Haran, we are looking forward to working with you all, over the coming year.

 

We have a very busy term ahead with lots of fun topics and learning to do, including Master of Tables and Master of Spellings.

 

The expectations are that your child completes their homework every week. This will be set on Mathletics, Reading Eggs and Google classroom for spellings. They also need to learn their times tables!

 

We also like to encourage independence, which means that your child will now take responsibility of their home reading. They will now choose their own reading books (within their reading band) and change them as and when they have read them. No more reading record books to complete!

 

P.E will take place on Wednesday afternoons so, a gentle reminder about having a full kit and no earrings.

 

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to speak to any one of us.

 

The year three team.
