Miss Bliss, Mrs Rai and Mrs Turner welcome you to year 3!
Charlie and the Chocolate factory
This term we are enjoying reading Roald Dahl’s book- Charlie and the chocolate factory! We have been incorporating our learning from this book into our Literacy lessons- So far we have been writing descriptive pieces about characters and settings, writing recounts and reporting on the events in ‘ the nut room’ and designing, creating and writing instructions for our own chocolate bars - YUM!
This terms topic
The focus in our creative curriculum topic is the Ancient Greeks. We have been finding out lot’s about Ancient Greece including: Greek Gods, tasting Greek food and comparing different Greek Myths. We are now be beginning to write our very own Greek Myths- We can’t wait to publish our final copy!
We encourage children to be reading at home for 10 minutes each night. Thank you to all the parents that are already doing this- it is having a positive impact on their learning!
Times tables- In year 3 we have a big emphasis on times tables- I am amazed at the amount of children who have been bringing in work from home, showing that they have been practising- thank you! This is a key skill and will support your child in their Maths work.
This term our PE sessions are on Wednesday and Thursday. However it is advised children bring their PE kits in on a Monday and they should remain in school till the Friday. Please ensure the correct kit is in school including suitable clothing for both indoor and outdoor.
