Year 3 Week 16 2015

The ancient Greeks are here!!!!!!!
This week in English we have embarked on our Greek myths and legends. We are concentrating on the tale of Theseus and the Minotaur for our English study unit.

Mr. Kerray’s mathematics group this week have revised our work on finding the difference between two numbers using a variety of strategies. Mr. Askew’s group have been doubling using partitioning and multiplying using the grid method.

In RE the children have been introduced to a unit on Sacred Text, we looked at a Christian Latin manuscript and the features that made it look special. We identified what we knew about the New Testament.

In Computing the children researched the Ancient Greeks using the B.B.C. Primary History website.
(Don’t forget your child has Log Ins for educational sites in the front of their journal.)
.
Mr Fidler continues his work on Greek warriors.
Mr Reeves continues teaching the children skills for mastering the art of playing the ukulele!

Remember we will have swimming every Thursday till half term.

Reminders:
Please remember a daily reading session of about 10 minutes will really help your child’s progress. Also a few questions about what they have read will help aid comprehension.
Please bring in P.E kits on Monday - these will be sent home on Fridays.

Many Thanks for your continued support!
Mr Askew, Mr Kerray, Mrs Jefferys and Mrs Baker.
