We hope that you’ve had an amazing summer and have settled in well now that you are in Key Stage 2! There are lots of things planned for this term so we hope you are ready.
We have started our topic ‘Ancient Egypt’ and had lots of fun learning facts about the Egyptians and their way of life in the Science Dome last week. We are also looking forward to visiting the British Museum on Friday where we will be able to interact with real life artifacts.
Our Science topic this term is ‘Rocks’. We will be looking at how rocks are formed, what they are used for and how they change over time.
We have started our Maths learning with place value, recognising what each digit represents and ordering numbers to 1000. Please keep practicing the timetables and keep your eye out on MyMaths as there will be activities for you to do at home!
English will include the story ‘There’s a Pharaoh in our bath’ by Jeremy Strong and we will be writing stories around this as well as writing instructions on how to mummify a Pharaoh. Beware, it is gruesome! Please ensure you practice your spellings as you will be tested on these every Thursday. We will also be checking your reading records so please read a minimum of 4 times a week. Remember if you read a book you really enjoy put it on our reading stand with your review!
Rainbow words have also been sent home. Remember to learn to read them and spell them. When you are ready, let an adult know and you will be tested in school. Good Luck!
As always we value helpers with reading, so please let a member of staff know if you are willing to help!
Mrs Barton and Mrs Bolden.
Welcome back Year 3. We hope you’ve all had a relaxing break and not eaten too much chocolate!
We have lots of things planned this half term as we start our new topic ‘Extreme Weather’.
For those of you that want to research at home, please use the following link.
We will be using the Wizard of Oz as a stimulus to write persuasive texts, stories and information booklets. In Maths, we will continue with calculation, looking in detail at more formal written methods.
We are looking forward to hearing your news and seeing your creative home learning!
Miss Panayi and Mrs Bolden
