Miss Dearn (Team Leader)
Getting in shape for Sports Day!
This week has been School Sports Week when we have had a particular focus on P.E and practising skills outdoors. As well as preparing for our exciting Sports Day next Thursday July 5th, we have also enjoyed a karate taster session where many children had the chance to try out some karate moves, kicks and showcase their forward rolls! Congratulations to Lemurs on their wonderful assembly performances. Due to Sports Day there will be no Big Write lesson this coming Thursday.
Still lots of excitement to come in the remainder of this term - lets hope the sun keeps shining! Please remember that all the children are equipped with sunhats, water bottles and apply sun cream before school to avoid dehydration or sunburn.
Big Write will not take place this week due to Sports Day. This week's literacy will focus on the key features for writing recounts and newspaper reports.
Class Swaps Day will take place on Friday 6th July when the children will have fun working in their new classes and meet their teachers for Year 4.
The Year 3 Team.
We will be continuing our work on measures, converting units of length, weight and capacity. Again any practical weighing, measuring and estimating would be really helpful to consolidate this area of maths..
In Year 3 we would love for your child to read as frequently as possible. Your child has a reading book and a Reading Record diary that you can write comments in. We are also keen to see children writing their own comments about what they have read! Each Wednesday, your child will be sent home with a reading comprehension activity. Please complete this with your child for the following Wednesday.
Writing (We love writing!)
Every week your child has plenty of opportunities to write. We encourage the children to write at length in many different subjects. We also have a weekly Big Write session where we focus on writing lots of different text types, e.g. traditional tale, diary entry, explanation text. The objectives that we will cover this year, please click on the link below:
BIG Write and the BIG Talk!
Every Thursday your child takes part in the Big Write. We would love for your child to discuss the Big Write with you so they are full of ideas for the session! You can find details on the Big Write on our homework page.
