Thank you Year 3 for an amazing year - I've made some fantastic memories and I hope you all have too :-)
Take care in the future and 'Reach for the Stars'
Homework is given out every Friday and is collected in by the following Thursday. This will usually consist of spellings, times tables, reading and where necessary Literacy and Numeracy sheets.
There will be occasions where topic or science homework will be set - this could be research or DT based.
Whole School Reading Challenge
FANTASTIC NEWS - WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE KEEP ON READING AT HOME - EVEN THOUGH WE WON LAST TIME WE NEED TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING!
A quick reminder that the more we read the more points we get!! Each child can get a possible 7 points per week. Lets try to up the anti and read even more at home.
Children are encouraged to read daily and receive a stamp on their chart each time they have read at home. Reading books are checked daily and changed when needed, as long as their reading record has been signed to say that your child has read. Points will be collected for our whole school reading challenge in which a class has the chance to win a big mystery prize at the end of the half term.
This year PE is on Tuesday and Friday so please make sure your child has their relevant kit in school on that day. This half term we will be doing Athletics and Striking and Fielding games (cricket and rounders).
In History we will be moving away from the chronological British history. After an overview of the world's earliest civilisations, they begin a depth study of the life and achievements of the Ancient Egyptians. Children investigate how Egyptian society was structured and read about the discovery of the Rosetta Stone. They explore the mysteries of the Great Pyramid and learn about the achievements of some famous ancient Egyptians. Finally, children learn about how the discovery of King Tutankhamun's tomb and its artefacts provided insight into the life of the pharoah.
In Geography we will be looking at What's in a region? Comparing North West England with East Anglia. The children focus on the British Isles, its constituent parts and its physical features, including rivers and mountains. We look at the concept of a 'region' and culminate with a comparison of 2 regions.
In Science we will be looking at animals including humans: skeleton, muscles and movement. The children will: suggest the body parts we use for common movements; understand how the skeleton, muscles and joints work and that most animals have similar structures; know that animals, including humans, grow into adults.
It's good to be green!!
To reward good behaviour, all teachers and staff will be giving smileys to children who follow our school rules and display fantastic behaviour in and around school.
I wonder who will be the first to reach their first bronze award?
Bronze- 100 Smileys
Silver- 200 smileys
Gold- 300 smileys
WELL DONE TO ALL THOSE CHILDREN WHO HAVE ACHIEVED A SILVER CERTIFICATE - KEEP UP THE HARD WORK!
