Autumn 2 Week 5

Another week in Class 3 has flown by! 

This week in Maths we learned all about Data handling. Together as a class we made tally charts for our favourite fruits, animals and colours. We then used this information to create a pictogram and bar chart. We also answered some tricky questions looking at our graphs such as 'How many more children liked blue than red' or 'What is the most/least favourite animal in Class 3'.

In Literacy we read different versions of Little Red Riding Hood and focused on directed speech in our writing (using speech marks correctly!) as well as finding synonyms for 'said' (i.e. replied, whispered, shouted, muttered etc).

This week the children also created some lovely art work. We mixed primary colours to create different secondary colours and then used those to paint colour field paintings in the style of Rothko.

This week's highlight was the 'Experience Christmas' day as well as making Christmas decorations. We can't believe it is only two weeks until the start of the Christmas holidays! 

We wish you all an enjoyable weekend!

Autumn 2 Week 3

Dear Parents,

Thank you to the parents who attended Thursday's parents evening, it was lovely to meet some of you properly. We are looking forward to seeing more parents on Tuesday for round 2!

In Maths this week we revised our knowledge of place value and learned how to use the column method to add two 2 digit numbers. 

In Literacy we wrote a recount about our fantastic trip to the Roald Dahl Museum. In our writing we focused on conjunctions such as because, so, if, that etc. as well as time connectives.

In History we learned about Walter Tull and his role during World War 1.

In Science the children researched their favourite fruits and then drew a tally chart and pictograph to show their results.

In PSHE&C the children designed a healthy packed lunch which included a delicious sandwich, healthy snacks and a healthy drink.

Have a great weekend!

Autumn 2 Week 2

Dear Parents,

Another week in Class 3 has flown by! The highlight this week was our brilliant trip to the Roald Dahl Museum. The children really enjoyed finding out more about Roald Dahl's life and work. The museum itself was beautiful and the workshop where the children had to make up their own words and edit some of Roald Dahl's work was a lot of fun! The children came up with some brilliant sentences and we will certainly be using their ideas in our writing in the weeks to come! 

This week the children also got to enjoy a very moving theatre show called 'Lest we forget' as part of our learning about World War 1 and Remembrance Day. We also finished our assessments and practised reading and writing the analogue time to the nearest quarter of an hour!

Please note that the children have all been given a slip with your allocated time slot for the upcoming parents evening.

We hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Autumn 2 Week 1

What a busy week had in Class 3! 

We enjoyed our first PHSE&C lesson taught by the Go 2 project from Stevenage Borough Council. The children had fun making fruit kebabs from mangoes, raspberries, plums, blueberries and grapes. Some children who had never tried mango before commented that they thought it tasted 'sweet and delicious'. We spent the rest of the week completing our assessments and learning all about World War 1 and Remembrance Day. We talked about what it would've been like to be alive during the war and we discussed why the poppy has become such an important symbol. We also spent some time making poppies which we used to decorate our classroom. We had a special day on Friday all about Remembrance Day and the children contributed with some lovely thoughts and prayers.

We are really excited about our trip to the Roald Dahl museum next Wednesday 14th November. Please ensure your child arrives at school on time and has a packed lunch for the trip. We are aiming to get back before the end of the school day so pick up will be as normal.

We hope you're having a lovely weekend!

Autumn 1 Week 8

Dear Parents,

We had a busy week in Class 3! In DT we tasted different dips such as salsa, hummus and guacomole. We talked about the ingredients we might find in those dips and discussed whether they were healthy or not. We then made our own guacomole dip which was lots of fun! We used fresh ingredients such as avocados, red onions, tomatoes, coriander and lemon We really enjoyed tasting our dip, it was delicious! Thank you to everyone who brought in a donation towards our dip making ingredients!

This week we also wrote a class poem using rhyming words and calligrams. We solved some more division number problems and we made some poppies for our big school remembrance display!

We hope you all have a lovely and restful half term and look forward to seeing you when we come back!

Autumn 1 Week 7

Dear Parents,

Another week has flown by! It was lovely to see so many of you for our Family day on Wednesday. We have been busy this week applying our knowledge of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables to work out Division number sentences. We also started our poetry topic in Literacy by writing a senses poem on Bonfire night, using our best adjectives. In RE we discussed the important symbols of a Christian marriage and what they represent. 

A few reminders for next week:

Please read our trip and DT letter. Donations towards our DT 'dip making' are much appreciated.

Next week Mrs Weston will be in on Monday, Tuesday and Friday and Mrs Pateman will be teaching on Wednesday and Thursday.

Autumn 1 Week 6

Dear Parents,

We've had another productive week in Class 3. We have been working hard at learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and we have enjoyed writing our own version of Snow White.

In Geography we made up our own fact cards and compared two capital cities, London and Brasilia! 

In RE we wrote table contracts and discussed why it is important to keep our promises! 

We would like to remind all children and parents, that the homework is handed out every Tuesday and is due in the following Monday. Unfortunately we won't be able to mark the homework, if it is handed in late.

New spellings will go home every Tuesday and the spelling test is on the following Monday. We will be focusing on Common Exception words (also known as Tricky Words) for the rest of the term!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing lots of you next week for Family Week!

Autumn 1 Week 4

Another successful week in Class 3! 

In English this week we focused on writing instructions and in Maths we made amounts using different coins. We also worked out some very tricky Money Word Problems! 

This week we started learning our Harvest Poem, which we will be performing next Thursday 4th October during our Harvest Festival. The children have all got a copy of the lines they need to rehearse. We would be very grateful, if you could help your child to practise their verse at home!

As of next week, Mrs Pateman will write the spelling test score in the home spelling books. Any spellings that were incorrect will be highlighted in green. 

A little reminder that only Year 3 children are allowed to bring a pencil case into school. 

A lot of children have asked about show and tell. Your child will be given a date for their show and tell at some point in the next few weeks. 

We hope you have a lovely weekend!

Autumn 1 Week 2

Hello! 

We have had a great week in Class 3 practising Addition and solving simple word problems using our knowledge of Addition. In Literacy we read stories with a familiar setting and used our imagination to plan our own story, which we look forward to writing next week! 

In Geography we looked at a map of the UK and practised naming the four countries as well as their capital cities!

In PHSE we discussed how we wanted to treat each other in class. The children agreed that "we should listen to each other, be kind and never laugh if someone has something important to say."

In Science we sorted and classified different objects into groups: living, non-living and never been alive.

We have really enjoyed meeting new parents at the school gates and appreciate your patience especially at home time, as it is taking some time to remember all the new faces! 

We look forward to another week of fun in Class 3! 

Have a lovely weekend and see you next week!
