Happy New Year to you all and I hope you had a very exciting Christmas.
We have a new geography topic this half term about volcanoes and earthquakes which links quite nicely to our Science topic studying rocks and soils. We are also learning how about programming in ICT which should be interesting if a little challenging.
I hope you are looking forward to the next few weeks learning and enjoy the links for our topic which appear below.
There will be a new landmark of the week starting this week so keep looking out for those clues.
Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term. We have lots to do this half term leading up to Christmas with lots of fun to look forward to.
Please continue your hard work over the next few weeks and have a go at some of these websites to extend your learning.
Welcome to all the children and parents new to Year 3 and into the Key Stage 2 corridor. As the new school year is about to begin I'd like to pass on some important information about your new class.
PE kits will be needed every Monday and Tuesday and this term we will be doing cross country which will mean an outdoor PE kit will be needed.
Homework will be sent out twice a week on Monday and Friday. The spellings given out on Monday should be learned over the week ready for a test every Friday and these will need handing in. On Friday it will either be a reading comprehension exercise or maths and should be handed in on the following Monday. Reading should be around 10 - 15 minutes every evening with an adult.
Reading books will be changed regularly after children have completed a short online quiz in school related to their book of choice.
Every week I will be setting a challenge for children to try to identify a well known landmark with family points being awarded for the person who gives me the name and location of the landmark - I usually find adults can be useful sources of information for this.
I hope you enjoy your time in Year 3 and look forward to seeing you soon.
On Tuesday 16th October all the children in Year 3 went to Hathershaw College for a fun day of sport. This was their first meeting of the other schools involved in the Linking Project and enabled them to have a great time whilst meeting children from St Thomas' Werneth and St Mary's Greenfield.
All the children enjoyed the afternoon and eagerly joined in with all the games on offer.
