Dear Parents,

In January, Year 3 are going to begin Destination Reader as our guided reading lessons. We require books for the children to read during these sessions.

We kindly request you (if you are able to), to purchase the following book for Year 3 - Terry Deary's Roman Tales: The Fatal Fire.

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Roman-Tales-Fatal-Dearys-Historical/dp/1472941918/ref=nosim?tag=myc0e-21

 

We only need 16 books across the entire year group.

 

If you do purchase the book for us, please don't let the children read it at home, as we will be reading it in school.

 

Kind regards,

Year 3 Teachers.

This year the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has its 30th birthday. We think this is worth celebrating! We want to find out what life was like before the CRC was adopted by the UN in 1989. You will do this by talking to people that you already know who may have been children or even adults in 1989, such as your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or other trusted people in your community. Mrs Adem has put some prompt questions below to help you. You must interview a chosen adult and then bring your answers back to school by Monday 25th November. You can present your work anyway you choose to, such as; making a poster, PPT presentation, photographs, video or just written question and answers. We look forward to sharing your work with the rest of the class and the school.

How can we make paper a stable and strong structure?

We found that shapes such as cylinders and triangles worked better as they can carry more weight than shapes with parallel lines.

Welcome Year 3! Hope you all had a lovely summer!

 

We are very excited in getting to know you all this academic year!

 

Already we would like to excite you with one of our favourite topics, Roald Dahl! To celebrate we will have a very inspirational day filled with story telling and drama activities on Tuesday 17th September. We hope you share our enthusiasm of 'The Twits', but also be inspired by our ideas to write your very own story. 

 

We would like to mark this special day with a dress up day of all of Roald Dahl wonderful characters. It can be as simple as you want to as extravagant as you want. You are also welcome to come in school uniform and mark the occasion with an object such as a bow to represent Matilda or a beard for Mr Twits or even a tail for poor Mr Fox’s tail which unfortunately got... don’t want to spoil the surprise! It is up to you! I wonder if you can guess who we are dressing up as...? 

 

Homework will be given out both maths and literacy first week back and we look forward to displaying all your fantastic 'Dream Jars'!

 

Please remember your new timetable in KS2 is;

10:30 Break time, where you'll be able to bring in healthy snack such as fruit.

12:00 Lunch time.

No afternoon break.

 

You will be taught French once a week on Wednesdays and Homework is given out weekly, both maths and literacy every Friday. Your homework will include your classes weekly timetable, which will help you to remember what to bring in on what day.

 

Look forward to Wednesday 4th September for our FIRST day in Year 3!
