Y3 Homework Friday 20th April 2018

Schofield and Sims
The children should complete one page of their Schofield and Sims book and return their book to school by Wednesday 25th April. Please complete any corrections before beginning a new test.

Please continue to read regularly with your child. Reward points will be given to children who record what they have read in their reading diaries. Please ask your child to tell you about what they have read. This will help to ensure your child can understand the text they are reading.

During their morning work this week, the children have been looking at a long /a/ sound, spelt with /ei/ and /ey/. Please look through the workbooks with the children, complete any unfinished work and practise the spellings. The spellings are:

eight, eighth, eighty, weight, vein, veil, beige, sleigh, freight, neighbour

hey, they, obey, grey, purvey, whey, survey, convey, disobey and prey

We understand that many of these spellings are quite simple. However, the children need to revise the rules for the various graphemes and practise spellings these words correctly in their written work too.

Our new Science topic this term is, Light and Shadows. If you have any spare torches at home that you are happy to loan to Y3 this term, we would be very grateful.

Happy Easter from the Y3 Team

The children have not been set any homework for the Easter holidays. All we ask, is that the children read regularly and practise their times tables. However, please encourage your child to enter the writing challenge. See the newsletter for further details.

We hope they enjoy their time off and that you all have a fun and peaceful Easter.

French Language Week

Children at St Marie's celebrated French Languages Day on Wednesday this week. Many fun activities took place during the French lessons, including parachute games and other outdoor games to help Y3 learn some new colours. 
Other classes enjoyed playing games using their language skills during their lessons. Year 6 are preparing for a fashion show after Easter, so they practised their vocabulary and phrases by playing Lotto. Year 5 also played Lotto and proved they really know the French words for sports and pastimes. A game of Heads up Thumbs Down went down well, with the children having to use french words to guess who had chosen them.  'Chinese Whispers' in French went down well, especially when the children were told there would be prizes for the best team effort! 
Well done everyone who took part on Wednesday.

Stone Age Topic Day in Y3!

Y3 went back in time to the Stone Age today!

The children came to school dressed as cave boys and girls!

Y3 had to build their own homes using natural resources from the school woods. They also created cave art, using the different animals that were around in the Stone Age as inspiration.

They also had a chance to dig up artefacts like archaeologists, to find items from the Stone Age and other times in history.

We had a brilliant day. Thank you to all the parents for the fantastic costumes that the children came to school in.


See the photo gallery below, to see what we got up to.
