Our first topic of the year is Pirates. The children had fun transforming themselves into pirates by making their own hook, hat and eye patch as well as finding out their very own pirate name. So far we have created our own pirate portrait and learnt lots of new terminology and vocabulary to use in our work.
Year 3 were really lucky to have a visit from a Royal Fleet Auxilary. We learnt lots about modern day pirates. We were shown pictures of pirate ships and the Pirate Pen where pirates are kept once they have been caught.
British Heritage Day 13.09.19
Today was British Heritage Day in school and everyone dressed up for the occasion. In 3C, we were joined by Florence Nightingale, Margot Fonteyn, Cilla Black, Sir Alexander Flemming, Juliet (from Shakespeare's play), Harry Kane, and many more icons from British history.
We spent the morning exploring the United Kingdom. We learnt that there a 4 countries in the UK and labelled them on a map along with their capital cities and the bodies of water surrounding the countries. We also identified monuments and British heritage sites including Edinburgh Castle, Angel of the North and Tower of London. We were shocked to discover how big the Angel of the North really is!
In the afternoon we researched Stonehenge and were amazed to learn that it started being built 5000 years ago and some of the stones were transported from Wales using only rivers, oxen and rope!
Please make sure kits are always in school and clearly named.
Outdoor PE - Tuesday
Indoor PE - Wednesday
In year 3, children are expected to complete three pieces of homework a week. This can be anything from helping with the dinner, attending clubs, swimming lessons, spelling practise, reading, practising times tables, handwriting, topic research, etc.
You will have lots of homework ideas for each topic on the back of every Learning Leaflet.
Each entry in your child's Home Learning Diary will receive one merit.
Every half term, children with at least 15 merits will be rewarded with Learning Loot to spend in the Homework Hut.
|Silver Loot||Gold Loot|
|15 merits||20 merits||25+ merits|
Let's aim for everyone to achieve Gold!
Every week in 3C, the child with the most merits receives a Homework Star prize.
Will it be you?
Every Friday, children are given new spellings and will be tested on them the following Friday.
They will hear the word in a sentence and will be asked to write the whole dictated sentence.
Spelling practise can be written in your child's Home Learning diary!
Look out for your child's login to practise their times tables at home!
Ukuleles must be in school every Thursday!
