Our attendance for last week was 99%. Well done! We had 4 late marks.
In English we started our new text Oliver Twist. We have learnt that he is an orphan who has no mother or father and that he lives in an orphanage where the children are treated terribly.
In Maths, we started our new unit on length and measurement. So far we have learnt that 1cm has 10mm and that 1m has 100cm. We used this knowledge to compare between cm and m as well as mm and cm. Next week, we will start to look at how to add length before moving onto subtraction and perimeter.
In Science, we completed our mind map for our new unit on Light. We can't wait to learn more interesting facts!
In French, we enjoyed our very own French breakfast. We needed to use our knowledge of the foods we have learnt to ensure we asked for our correct treat.
In our History lesson we mind mapped our new unit about Victorian Britain. We will be focusing on Victorian Droylsden towards the end of our unit. We also completed a timeline ensuring we used chronological order.
Our Learning Hero was awarded for incredible speed when recalling multiplication facts.
Our Extraordinary Learners were:
Our Championship Point winners were Joe, Blaise and Annabelle! Well done!
Our winning house was Pa
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. Online resources such as Active Learn https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 and Times Table Rockstars https://ttrockstars.com/ support children in the development of key comprehension and times table fluency.
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.
Thursday 5th March - Year 3 trip to Quarry Bank Mill
Friday 6th March - Year 3 World Book Day
Tuesday 10th March - Art Gallery after school. Children's artwork will be available for purchase (£8 per piece)
Thursday 14th May - Year 3 trip to Smithills Farm
