Year 3 Week 2- 18th September

We have had a very busy week! We really enjoyed the samosas, momos, aloo dam and not forgetting the masala chai!. A great start to our Indian/Diwali theme.

In English this week we have been working ontelling and retelling the story of Rama and the demon king. We created story maps to help us follow the structure of the story.

 In mathematics Mr.Askew has looked at different strategies for adding; such as using knowledge of number bonds to 10 to help. Mr.Kerray's set have been working on partition and recombining of two and three digit numbers.

In  R.E we have introduced the Trimurti of deities in Hindu religion.

In computing we have worked on sprites for coding.

Mr.Fidler has taught graduated colour mixing in art. 

We used our story knowledge of Rama and the demon king to help us complete some team activities at Forest schools.

Remember Forest schools every Monday from now on,so please remember your kit.

Thanks for your returns for the Mohnesee residential, more news will follow.

Remember to continue reading daily with your child, 10 minutes daily practise will really help them to improve.

Make sure you also discuss the book you have read, again this is an important reading skill that the children need to develop. 

Please return homework folders every Wednesday so that new homework can be added.

Please bring PE kits into school on Monday, we will send them home on Friday.  

Many thanks for your support
