Year 3 Week 46 2014

Matching Numbers 
We have had another busy week in Year 3.

In Literacy this week we have started a unit on poetry where the children have been looking at descriptive poems and identifying key vocabulary. 

In mathematics this week Mr.Kerray's set has been working on odd and even numbers and multiplication by 2 and 5. Mr.Askew's set have been finding fractions of shapes and ordering fractions using the symbols < and >.

In I.C.T the children started their powerpoint presentation on the Gunpowder Plot using transitions and animations.

In R.E. we were using a 'Giant' metaphor to discuss the issues our world faces today. 

During the time slot for our music lesson the children attended the school remembrance service and were able to witness a variety of music and poetry dedicated to the memory of the fallen.

Mr.Fidler continued with his unit on textiles involving embroidery skills.

There is mathematics and English homework this week. Could this please be handed in on Wednesday so the following weeks homework can be added. 

We have also started rehearsing for our Diwali Assembly on 28th November! 

Reminders.

  • Remember to continue reading daily with your child, 10 minutes daily practice will really help them to improve. You could also discuss together the book you have read, again this is an important reading skill that the children need to develop.
  • Please keep signing your child's journal to indicate that you have read with your child. Many thanks.
  • Please bring PE kits into school on Monday, we will send them home on Friday.

Many thanks for your support  Mr Askew and Mr Kerray
