Year 3 Week 48 2014

Year 3 rehearse steadfastly for their Assembly 
Another busy week of work for the children culminating in their Diwali assembly on Friday! It was good to see many parents at the event. 

In Literacy  we have started a unit looking at the concept of a commentary, making initial plans to structure a commentary for the battle scene in 'Rama and the Demon King.'
Dramatic processions in
by candlelight! 

In mathematics this week Mr.Kerray's set had an introduction to division by 2 using the halving strategy. Mr.Askew's set has been working on number bonds to 100, adding using partitioning and drawing and measuring lines.

In I.C.T the children learnt how to import a video clip into their powerpoint presentation and finished their projects. We shall evaluate these next week.

In R.E. we completed our collaborative poem on 'Beware Ravana Comes!'

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.

  • 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
