Year 3 Week 47 2014

Boys Writing Poetry 
The children have worked really hard this week!

In Literacy  we have completed a unit on poetry where the children have written their own descriptive poem based on the poem The Magic Box.

In mathematics this week Mr.Kerray's set have been revising multiples of 2, 5 and 10 with an introduction to multiples of 4 using the 'double and double again' strategy.  Mr.Askew's set has been working on money and associated problems.

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

In R.E. we had collaborative ideas on how we can defeat 'global demons', using these to compose a class poem.

In music Mr Reeves worked with the children on songs that they will be singing in their Christmas production.

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.

Diwali Assembly - all Year 3 parents are cordially invited to our assembly next Friday (28th) at 10 am.


  • 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
