We are so thrilled to welcome you all back to school and into Year 3! We hope you have all had a lovely summer and are looking forward to the year ahead. This year we have lots of exciting topics to explore, starting off with Ancient Greece.
We will be updating this page regularly with pictures of the amazing work the children have completed, as well as useful information about the work we are doing and some resources to support our learning.
As always, if you have any concerns or questions please let us know and we can arrange a time to discuss things further.
Miss Lilley, Mrs Rose and Mrs Hutchinson.
Please see the home learning timetable for Monday 30th November - Wednesday 2nd December below. All of the resources and live lessons will be available on Microsoft Teams. The children should all have their logins in the front of their reading records. If you have any difficulties please contact Miss Lilley or the office and we will support you in whatever way we can.
Spellings will be sent home and uploaded here every Friday. The children only need to learn the column that they are sent home with. We will be testing spellings on a Friday morning. Feel free to use whichever method works best for your child!
Homework is set every Wednesday and will be due in the following Wednesday. Please find your child's log in in the front cover of their reading records. Children should also complete 4 items from the homework menu by Monday 7th December.
Wednesday 25th November - Wednesday 2nd December:
MyMaths: 8 times table
We have already started to receive some excellent homework from the children, we are very impressed with how much effort they are putting in at home as well as at school.
Please remember to send pictures or documents to the school office, as we are currently unable to take in physical copies of the work the children have completed.
We have started our new Science unit all about forces and magnets, and the children had a go at planning and conducting their own investigations. They used some toy cars and tested the amount of force needed to move them on different surfaces. They came to the conclusion that we need to use more force to push something on a bumpy surface, and less force to push something on a smooth surface.
Ancient Greek Day
We really enjoyed our Ancient Greek day and we learnt lots about things that the Ancient Greeks invented! We all made a mask inspired by Greek theatre props, as well as an olive wreath to wear for our own Olympic Games. All three teams managed to win a gold medal, which we found very exciting!
The children braved the weather to go on an animal hunt in their science lesson this week! We have been learning about the three different types of skeleton and their job was to find all 24 animals and sort them based on whether they had an endoskeleton, an exoskeleton or a hydro static skeleton. They all did a super job, we were especially impressed with their team-working skills and perseverance!
