Our attendance for last week was 99%. Well done! We had 2 late marks.
In English we have now read our text, Oliver Twist. We have written a setting description to describe the outside and inside of Fagin's Den. We also completed a WANTED Poster to raise awareness about the evil villain who roams London's streets. Over the coming weeks we are going to begin to retell the story as though we are an elderly Oliver.
In Maths, we started our new unit on fractions. We have recapped on 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, unit fractions and non-unit fractions. We have started to find fractions of shapes and amounts. Soon we will be placing fractions on numberlines. These will include fifths and tenths.
In Science, we developed our knowledge of light sources and if they are man-made or natural. We found out that the moon gets it light from the sun and this is called reflective light. We also discovered that a lightbulb can provide us with light but this is man-made.
In French, we used our knowledge of numbers to explain how many foods we could see.
In our History lesson we learnt about what life was like as a child in the mill. We conducted interviews and wrote our own. Next week we will compare the life of a child in the mill to our life now.
Our Learning Hero was awarded for asking great questions, developing her knowledge and the knowledge of those around her! Well done!
Our Extraordinary Learners were:
Our Championship Point winners were Poppy, Annabelle and Kyle. Well done!
Our winning house was Honesty!
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 2nd April - Victorian Day for Y3 (In school. Children to come dressed as a Victorian child)
Thursday 14th May - Year 3 trip to Smithills Farm
