Welcome back to our Year Three weekly blog

Friday 21st September

 

What a lovely week we have had in class this week.

In our English lessons, we have been practising using appropriate adjectives to use for our expanded noun phrases. We have been using thesauruses to find appropriate adjectives ensuring that we aren’t using synonyms in our writing. Such as “the small, tiny ant.” We have been applying our expanded noun phrases to a setting description from the book “ Stone Age Boy” We have also been practising starting our sentences in different ways, for example by not always starting with “the.”

In Maths, we have been ordering numbers. We have been thinking about last week’s place value lessons and how we need to look at the different columns to assess which number is greater. We then have begun adding and subtracting 10. We will continue to practise this next week, particularly when we have to break the boundary.

In our Science lessons, we have been investigating the properties of rocks. We have discussed terminology such as permeability and density and assessing if we could identify these properties in our rocks.

In our Music lesson, we have begun our class song “Let your spirit fly.” Last week we practising singing the song and this week we practise keeping the beat with various instruments.

I am pleased to say that many more children have been rewarded with golden time this week. This is due to superb reading at home. As the children are aware, they must read at home three times in order to be rewarded with a Friday morning golden time. I hope we have a full house next week!

Just a few polite reminders.

        Parents evening slips have been sent home. If you require a specific time or date , please send your reply slip in ASAP.

  • At play time, should your child want toast and milk as a snack, they will need 15p for toast and 25p for milk. As you can appreciate, the children are finding this rather tricky so wherever possible, can you please send your child in with the correct change.
  • PE will be on a Friday so please can the children have their PE kit in school on that day.
  • In Year Three, the children have the opportunity to win a golden time treat on a Friday morning with the PE lead. This is only if your child has read three times per week at home, either their school reading book or their own personal choice book from home.
  • On a Monday, we will have a weekly spelling test. We practise these spellings in school and they will be sent home to practise over the weekend on a Friday. Mathletics homework will be set on a Friday. Their username and password for this website will be in the front of your diaries.
  • The Photographer will be in school on Tuesday 25th September.

Have a wonderful weekend.

 

Miss Green, Mrs Owen and Mrs Higson.
