The last week of the first half term has whizzed by and we couldn’t feel prouder of how well the children have settled and worked so far in Year 3. They are all ready and looking forward to the well-deserved break.
Thank you to all the parents who have sent their children’s photograps for Growth Books. If you haven’t done it yet please send them in first week of the second half term.
Year 3P will have Dance this half term and Year 3B will have Music.
On the 27th of November we are going on our trip to the Science Museum and need some parents volunteers. If you have Ravenstone DBS check and are available on the day please contact the class teacher as soon as you can.
English: This week we work on our descriptive language (powerful adjectives to describe nouns and correct use of adverbs) to enhance children’s writing. We then used our ideas and skills writing a diary entry inspired by the story of Fly Eagle Fly.
Maths: This week we worked on adding 1, 2 and 3 digit numbers to 3 digit numbers using a formal written method (column method) and introduced bridging over to the next column. We emphasized the importance of remembering to put ones, ten and hundreds in the correct columns to ensure that our calculations are correct.
Please continue practise writing, reading, counting and comparing 3 digit numbers to support children’s fluency and confidence with 3 digit numbers.
PSHE: This week we have been discussing what is meant by body and personal space and what does it mean to respect our and other people’s body and personal space.
Please ensure that children return their Library books and 'Take Home' (colour coded books) every week.
On PE days, children need to wear their normal uniform and will get changed for PE in the lesson. Children are welcome to leave their PE kits in their lockers.
In Key Stage Two, we do not receive free fruit at playtimes, please feel free to send in a healthy snack for your child.
We are always available in the playground at the end of the school day for a quick chat. Please feel free to approach us, if you require a longer meeting please send an email to the teacher or the office to organise this.
Have a lovely break!
Mrs Bull and Mrs Pixton
