A few parents approached me about how they could help their children with their learning over the summer. There is a list below of website you can use for ideas. Scroll down to also find the number club sheets. 

 

Please don't work too hard though. Enjoy the break and have a wonderful summer.

Well done to all the children who took part in the FAME festival. It was a great afternoon and they sounded wonderful.

Spellings

Spellings will be tested every Monday. Click on the link to print a new copy of your spellings.

Handwriting

We are working really hard to improve our handwriting in year 3. Our focus at the moment is joining ‘f‘. Keep checking for updates to see photos of our neat writing. If you would like to practice at home, ask an adult for some handwriting paper. Mrs Foxon has set a challenge to find the most improved handwriting. The prize for the most improved is the chance to use the laptop for a few lessons.

Maths

With Mrs Foxon, we are learning about measuring. We are learning how to measure mass and how to calculate the missing numbers on weighing scales.  

 

With Mrs Batten, we will be continuing to develop our understanding about fractions. 

 

Mrs Foxon’s maths challenge: Maths is my favourite subject and I love a challenge so I thought I’d challenge you. Check out the link and have a go. Bring your findings in to school to share with me, I’d love to see what you think. Remember, I will update the challenge so keep checking.

In science, we are learning about rock and volcanoes.

What a fabulous Science Day we've had!  We learnt all about the ozone layer and made our own model. Then we studied a glacier using satellite photographs where we discovered how it had reduced in size over the last few decades.

RE

This term in RE we will be celebrating and studying Christ’s glorious resurrection through the stories of the Road to Emmaus and Breakfast at the Shore. The children will learn about the impact that Jesus’s rising from the dead had on the Disciples and that the Eucharist in Mass is our opportunity to meet the Risen Christ today. This will lead on to work on Pentecost where we will be looking at the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Sacraments. Our final unit of work will be Prayer where we will be looking at Jesus’s example as a way of understanding the different forms of prayer and contemplating the many places to reflect and pray. The children will also continue to have the opportunity each week to prepare and present our class collective worship.

 

French

This term we will be learning how to talk about our families in French – learning the vocabulary for family members and the grammar associated with possessive adjectives.

Home learning

As promised, I have created some number club practice sheets to be printed at home. These contain similar questions to the ones we use in school. If you would like to, give yourself 10 minutes to answer as many as possible. Check your own answers and correct any mistakes.
