Welcome to our new blogging facility! This is where you will find all the relevant information for Year 3SS!

Our attendance for last week was 94%.  Let's see if we can improve this next week and move up the Attendance Board!

In English, we have been linking our learning to our current topic The Stone Age. Our text is called Stone Age Boy. We have had such a fantastic time exploring the story through role on the wall, conscience alley and inverted speech. We have written scripts, letters and descriptions! This week we started to retell the story using talk for writing. So far we have written the introduction and one of the main parts. Next week we will be moving onto the final parts of the story using our grammatical features of fronted adverbials, conjunctions and expanded noun phrases. 




In Maths, we have been developing our knowledge of addition and subtraction. We have focused on 3 digits and used these to add or subtract single-digits. We have also been looking at adding and subtracting 10. We found that the ones will always remain the same when we do this. We have recapped on lots of methods using counters, numberlines, part-part whole and column! 


In Computing we have been looking at coding through Scratch! Our sprite has been taught to move, speak and spin! It has been very exciting developing these skills.


In R.E, we have been learning about Christianity and how Jesus and the Bible are key in this belief. We have looked at parables, the Old and New Testaments and are preparing to look at celebrations. 


In Music, we have been using the drums with Mr White and are developing our understanding of rhythm and pitch. 

In Reading, we have been developing our dictionary and thesaurus skills through lots of clarifying sessions. We have also been using our skimming and scanning skills to locate answers to a range of comprehension questions. 

Our Learning Hero was awarded for always giving 100% in her learning and showing great determination in everything she does. Well done!


Our Championship Point winners were Poppy, Adam S and Savannah!

Our winning house was Respect! 

Key information:

Swimming is EVERY MONDAY. PLEASE ensure that your child's clothing is labelled and they are given a bag to carry this in. We have had lots of items go missing and this would help us greatly.

P.E is EVERY WEDNESDAY. Again please ensure a full kit is provided each week. This can remain in school and children can take it home at the end of term. 

Home Learning is given out on Wednesdays/Thursdays. Children are expected to complete this by the following Monday. If this is not completed then they will be expected to attend home work club.  

Reading books are changed as much as possible throughout the week. The more we read the better writers we will become so we encourage as much as possible but expect at least a book to be changed once a week. 

Upcoming Events:

22/10/19 - Hyde Community Garden Centre visit. 

14/11/19 - Stone Age Workshop (in school)
