Year 3 (55)

National Media Museum

On Thursday the children in Year 3 visited the National Media Museum in Bradford. It was such an exciting day! The children were able to investigate light in so many different ways. The highlight for most of the children was the IMAX cinema experience. The children watched ‘A Beautiful Planet’, a 3d film about earth, space and life on the International Space Station.

Writing Challenge

 This week I would like all the children to enter the writing competition. Please encourage your child to present their work neatly.They can write about any sporting event, not just the school sports day. I have attached a PowerPoint which I used to introduce the challenge to the children.

Spelling

Please help your child to spell the Y3/4 words on the spelling sheet which are on the last column. The Year 5/6 words are there as an extra challenge too if your child is able to spell these words correctly.

Maths

I have decided to have a break from Schofield and Sims this week. In class we have been practising adding 3 digit numbers using column addition. Please encourage your child to practise this method at home to reinforce the learning. Errors I have corrected with the children are  forgetting to write the digit carried over to the next column, or forgetting to include this digit when adding the totals.

Crowning Mary

Today it was our turn to crown Mary. We looked closely at the painting ‘Mary of Perpetual Help’, and we looked at the icon carefully to find out what it was teaching us. We then went to crown Mary at the front of the school. We said The Hail Mary together, and we thought about people in our lives who need support, help or comfort from Mary.

Homework week ending 12.5.2017

Reading

Your child has been provided with two reading booklets and a question booklet. Please encourage your child to read one booklet completely and then complete the answers to the questions. They can complete the second booklet at the same time or on a different day. In year 3 the children are expected to be able to read for a sustained amount of time, so please encourage your child to complete the booklet in one session. If your child is unable to find the answer to any question, please help them to locate the answer rather than just supplying it. We will go through the booklets in class when they have all been returned.

Maths

Schofield and Sims books have been sent home again this week.

Spelling

There will be a spelling test on list 11 next week.

Schofield and Sims books have been sent home again this week.

Reading

This term we are look in at work from Anthony Browne. We have read ‘The Tunnel’, and we have completed several activities from this story. Please ask your child to talk to you about the story. If you have any Anthony Browne stories at home, I would be grateful if we could borrow them for a few weeks.

During this topic I will be encouraging the children to look carefully at the pictures to see what extra details they give about the story. Please encourage your child to revisit picture books which they have at home to see how the pictures add to the story.
