Year 3

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.

Anthony - magnets stick to only some metals.

Jadesola - magnets don't stick to cans of coke.

Mark - they do stick to paperclips because they are a metal!

Tegan - magnets didn't stick to plastics or the door handle. Anthony added that they did stick to the screws holding the door handle on.

Fatmata - my earrings are made out of gold so the magnet didn't attract to them.

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.
