Please find below the autumn 1 newsletter highlighting what learning we will be getting up to over this half term.
Welcome to the Year 3 class page! Please find some useful documents uploaded below. These are the expected spellings for year 2 which some children will need to work on before moving onto the year 3/4 expected words list. I have also included some key documents linked to protocols around school which Mrs Holmes has emailed out. If you haven’t received any emails please check school has the correct details on file. Please remember that we have a staggered start and finish time and that some of Year 3 start back on the TUESDAY 8th, some WEDNESDAY 9th and some THURSDAY 10th September.Please check your emails for previous correspondence to see the day your child is due back. I have also uploaded some of the previous newsletters and correspondence detailing some of the arrangements and news you might wish to read through again.
To celebrate what would have been Roald Dahl's birthday we had a Roald Dahl day afternoon where we looked at his life and how he got some of the ideas for his story books and story telling. The children were really interested to learn about his life and how he got some of the ideas for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We have started reading The Twits this half term and find it very amusing. We used some natural materials from outside to create our own Mr Twit beards. There were no worms involved but quite a lot of grass!
We have loved the story of The Lion Inside and we have also looked at The Koala Who could story by Rachel Bright. We have enjoyed our Koala bear art work and created some super Lions. Here are some pictures and more will be added soon.
In maths we have been working really hard on our place value understanding. We are starting to get to grips with 3 digit numbers and partitioning these. We had a go at some hop scotch to help us with this.
Year 3 have been working really hard on some art work to celebrate International dot day. Here are some photos of our super work. We listened to the story 'The dot' and created our own unique dot piece of art work. We used pastels to create our final pieces.
