Congratulations to all the children we moved their peg up 'Setting a great example'. You superstars... Keep your eyes peeled for your names being displayed in our Friday morning Assembly!
Easter is fast approaching and ALL the children have been amazing this busy half term. Just a quick note,
I spoke to several of you at Parents' Evening about fantastic games and resources available to support your child with their times table. Please see below for more details.
As part of our Christmas Tree festival entry the children in Class Rufford made these AMAZING decorations. The children did all their own sewing and design... Well Done we are so proud of the finished result.
A huge Thank You to David for bringing in his Guide Dog Elliot and answering all our questions. The children were amazing and loved hearing about what it is like to have a Guide Dog and having a stroke of Elliot's golden fur. Well done!
Remember it is almost time to reveal our winning house for this half term! Keep making the right choices and earning your team a house point.
WELL DONE WATER!
During our Spring term we will be focusing on information texts, linking with our Science topic of Humans. We will be looking at the way information text are set out and comparing fiction and non-fiction texts. We have also been looking at Myths and Legends. The children have loved writing their own 13th Labour of Hercules.
Just a polite reminder that the children need to keep practising their weekly spellings and their Year 3 spellings and your child should be reading at least 4 times a week for 15 minutes.
Thank you .
As part of our Maths Learning we try to make our lessons as fun and as practical as possible. The topics we have been exploring this half term are problem solving, including addition and subtraction. The children have been focusing on their understanding of the Year 3 formal written methods.
Please make sure you are aware of your child's 'Instant recall facts' for this academic year. Please see the link at the bottom of the page for more details. A link to a key website with a range of Maths games is below.
Our New topic is Blue Planet we will be focusing on mountains, rivers and coasts. We will be exploring our local geography and the landscape and environment from further a field. With the huge success of David Attenborough's 'Blue Planet' series will be using this a support to our learning.
Please use photos below from our previous topic- World War 1. The children loved this topic. Thank you for all your input and amazing facts.
During this Autumn Half Term we will be focusing on our Biology Strand of the New Curriculum, looking at Humans, including animals.

However, it is important the children have their PE kits in school every day so we can be flexible.
