Weekly Update  – 11.01.2019

The children have had a busy week and are enjoying some new and challenging topics in many subject areas.

Next week, we are continuing with our keyboard skills in Computing and with so many devices being touch screen, the children were very interested to notice some of the other keys on the computer.

We have started to break down the skills involved in a rounders game in our outdoor PE lesson. Last week we looked at throwing and catching and this week moves onto batting. Please do ensure your child has warm kit as there were many chilly children on Tuesday this week! Please also note that ‘fitbits’ should not be worn for PE. Any children wearing these will be asked to remove them for the lesson. The class teacher cannot be held responsible for these items, so your child must either not wear them on PE days (Mon and Tues), or put them in a safe place (tray or bag).

In Art, we are introducing the children to the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo and will begin to create a piece of art inspired by his work. We need lots of pictures of food for this project, so would appreciate any ‘food magazines’ to be sent into school as soon as possible!

In Music this week, we will be listening to ‘Samba’ and identifying some of the instruments used to create this style. In Geography, we have been learning about maps. Could you help your child by revising the countries of the UK and their capital cities, as well as the seven continents of the world.

We hope you all received a copy of the new Home Learning Menu for this Half term. Just a reminder that one piece of homework should be handed in by Thursday each week.

Have a great weekend,

Year 3 Team
