Year 3 Week 06 2015

Playing ball, in PE 
In Literacy the three witches met Macbeth and made an appearance in our classroom! The children used the text from the play to re-enact this scene;they were certainly getting into 'witch' mode using excellent voice and gesture.

In Maths Mr.Askew's children have looked at different angles,2d shapes and perimeter. Mr.Kerray has been looking at number sentences and choosing the best operation to solve the problem. We have been looking at a variety of strategies that will help us with our subtraction.

In computing the children have had the opportunity to develop their mathematical skills using mathletics. 

In RE the children have been using their 'investigation' skills looking closely at the key components of the illustration and restructuring some of the key symbols within the painting to illustrate a relevance to their lives.

Mr. Reeves continues his work on the ukulele, where new chords are being added every week. Please make sure the children bring their ukulele to school every Tuesday.

In art Mr.Fidler is embarking on his Victorian steam train.

History this week continues to look at the Victorian period in more depth: we have entered the 'dark and murky' world of child labour. Those poor Victorian children!

Forest schools is proving to be good fun with Mrs Carroll at the helm! Another week of outdoor problem solving. There is mathematics and English homework this week. Could this please be handed in on Wednesday so the following weeks homework can be added.

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
