Weekly Update  – 13.09.2019

The children are really settling into Year 3 nicely and have been producing some good work. 

For this term, PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Please provide your child with kit suitable for indoors and outdoors, including a warm jumper as the weather is getting colder! A carrier bag for muddy trainers is also essential. Please ensure long hair is tied back and any earrings are removed or covered. Fitbits must be removed for PE lessons, and it is your child’s responsibility to put them somewhere safe so you may prefer your child to leave theirs at home.

Our main topic is Ancient Egypt, which will be used across the Curriculum. We have already had two History lessons to introduce the topic, and next week we will begin creating some Art using Nefertiti as inspiration. In Science, we are learning about light and shadow; next week we are discussing shadow formation alongside the difference between opaque and transparent. In Computing, the children are beginning to make an information powerpoint about Ancient Egypt, whilst in French, the children learnt how to greet each other and will be moving on to saying their names. Our PE lessons are covering the skills of basketball and dance. The school value we are currently focusing on is respect – both for ourselves, others and the wider community.

We will be sending home weekly spellings for the children the practise at home. Your child will be tested on these every Friday, and a new list will then be sent home. Mr Tottie and Mrs Cass’ group will receive theirs this week, whilst Mrs Hickey and Mrs Howell’s group will start next Friday. Please also check your child’s bookbag for the Year 3 Autumn Term Home Learning Menu. The expectation is that your child will choose one piece per week to complete and hand in by Thursday. This Home Learning Menu will be used until we are near the end of the Autumn term, when it will be replaced by a Christmas themed one. Please also continue to help your child practise their times table and listen to them read at home, especially as there is less scope to hear 1:1 readers in Key Stage 2. We will be introducing the children to the Accelerated Reader programme over the next couple of weeks and will send home information on how this works at that time.

Have a lovely weekend,

Year 3 Team
