Welcome to Summer 2 in Year 3.

Please find attached this half term's curriculum overview.

Key Stage 2 Participation event.
Year 3 had an action packed morning at the John Charles Centre for Sport on Wednesday 25th May. They had the opportunity to try out a variety of different sports which ranged from cricket and hockey to samba and cheerleading!
Imogen Georgina and Harvey loved being flyers in cheerleading.

Benjamin got the Bulls eye in Target Golf! He said, “I couldn’t believe it. I had a great time and was sad when we had to leave.” 

Lucy wrote “We imagined what it would be like to be dancing in the streets of Rio during the Olympics. It was such fun, I loved Samba.”

Having a water break after our hockey match. Said Sam “We learned how to dribble and tackle and then we had an actual match.”

Sponsored Fancy Dress Fun Run Friday 11.6.16

Despite a very wet start and a decidedly damp finish we all had a great time doing our 30 minute run. There were some fabulous outfits and a great atmosphere as friends cheered each other on in order to do their very best. Well done Lucy Harper for winning the best fancy dress in lower Key Stage 2 and also Charlie Courtman for running the most laps in Lower Key Stage 2; an impressive 11!

We had a fantastic time watching the Tour de Yorkshire pass through Boston Spa. Thank you to all the parents who made it possible.

It is hard to believe that we are two thirds of the way through the school year! I have attached a copy of the curriculum overview for this half term. We have lots of new things to learn and the children are really enjoying finding out about volcanoes, earthquakes, rocks and fossils. In French we are learning all about vegetables and expressing likes and dislikes and how to ask for things in shops. I have included some pictures of them expressing non- verbally which vegetables they like or dislike!
We have been studying Scandinavia this half term and have had fun tasting different typical Scandinavian foods. Blue cheese and pickled herring met with very different opinions!
As the first half term draws to a close, our class has a lot to be proud of. All the children have made the transition from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 with ease. They have adapted well to the new classroom routines seating arrangements with their gem groups.
We have enjoyed swimming and everyone in the class is making progress at an impressive rate and the children have impressed me with their sensible behaviour and independence in the changing area.
The highlight of the half term was our visit to Danelaw, a Viking settlement and I have included some wonderful photographs of our day. 
In maths we have used lots of games, puzzles and concrete resources to help deepen understanding of, and fluency with different concepts as the photos show.
Happy New Year! We hope this year is a successful and peaceful one for you and your families. On behalf of myself, Mrs. Cooper and Miss Nedd we would like to thank you very much for your many lovely cards and gifts at Christmas; we were quite overwhelmed.

I have attached this half term's overview and also some documents giving ideas to help learn spellings. Your children will be getting spellings to practise over the week so I have included some ideas to make learning more fun and memorable. They will include required spellings for Year 3 from the national curriculum and words from their spelling programme we use in class.
