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 98%.  We had 3 late marks. 

In English, we have written our own versions of Stone Age Boy. We used talk for writing to develop our sentences and the vocabulary blew me away! We shared out stories with 2VS so that they could have a head start with their learning around this topic. Next term we will have a new text and a new focus. Next week our writing will revolve around Black History Month and we will be writing a biography about Harriet Tubman 




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 two-digit amounts. We have recapped on lots of methods using counters, numberlines, part-part whole and column! We chose to stick with column as this helped us to exchange and find answers quickly and correctly!

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.

We started our new Design and Technology unit. We will be making our own soup that links in with our Stone Age topic. We tried different soups to help get our taste buds going. We weren't sure about pea and ham ... mainly because of how it looked! But we had a fantastic time. We also researched the importance of nutritional value and had a look at key soup ingredients such as carrots, parsnips, potatoes and onions. 



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 110% in his learning and showing great resilience in everything he does. Well done!


Our Championship Point winners were Adam S, Paula and Mariama. 

Our winning house was Determination! 

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.

24/10/19 - Halloween Disco (5-6pm)

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