We need your help!
Please start keeping your glass jars ready for our Christmas craft morning which is on Friday 24th November. For example you could bring in a jam jar or a sauce jar. Each child needs at least one jar in order to join in. But if you have extras please do bring them in. Jars must be clean and the previous label removed.
Just a reminder that it is our school trip to Colchester Castle on Thursday. Please ensure that your child arrives at school on time as the coach will be leaving just after 9am. We will be back in time for the end of the day pick-up.
Please ensure that your child does not have any nut products in their lunch box. We have been informed that a child from another school who has a severe nut allergy will also be there.
School uniform must be worn on the trip.
Any questions, please do ask me tomorrow before or after school.
I hope you all had a lovely half term break.
We've had a very busy first day back.
In English, we have started a new book called 'A Nest Full of Stars'.
We spent the lesson predicting what we thought the book would be about. The children came up with some lovely imaginative ideas! At the end of the lesson we read some of the book and found out it is a book full of poems.
Later this week, we will be writing some of our own poems.
Watch this space!
This week, we were lucky to have Mrs Coggins come and speak to the children about how to look after their teeth. She is returning again next week and then again the following week.
She has some homework for the children. I sent this home with the children today.
Can you find 10 items of food at home which contain sugar that surprise you? For example, look at crisps or tins of baked beans.
Look on the ingredient list - see what you can find!
Write the items down as a list and bring it in next week to share with Mrs Coggins.
In History this week, we have been learning about Roman soldiers and life in the Roman army. We have learnt lots of facts including how women were not allowed to be in the army and how the soldiers had to march for 20 miles a day!
The children have been showing an inquisitive attitude and asking some really interesting questions.
In English today, we have started a new book called 'Meerkat Mail'.
Today, we discussed what we could see on the front cover of the book and predicted what we thought the story will be about.
For parents that were unable to make Meet the Teacher on Friday, I gave your child two slips (please check book bags!)
One for photo permissions and one for Acceptable use of ICT. Please can you sign and return these to school ASAP.
Following on from the Meet the teacher meeting on Friday, I have checked the 'Interactive Resources' website and the login and password are as follows:
If you click on 'Folders' and then 'Year 3', you will find a selection of Maths games and activities that you can play with your child or they can play independently!
Any questions, please let me know.
Thank you to everyone who was able to come along to 'Meet the teacher' this evening.
For those of you who were unable to attend, please find a copy of the PowerPoint below.
Photo permission slips - if you were unable to make the meeting, I will give your child a copy of the slip on Monday and this needs to be returned by Wednesday (it is no longer opt out).
Acceptable use of ICT slips - again, these were given out at tonight's meeting but a copy will be given to your child on Monday. Please complete and return as soon as you can.
If you would like to make an appointment to meet with me to discuss anything about your child, their new class and Year 3, please speak to me before or after school or phone the office and we can arrange this.
Many thanks - have a lovely weekend.
Just a reminder that my 'Meet the teacher' presentation will be this Friday (22nd) from 3.45 - 4.15pm.
If you are unable to make it, a copy of the Powerpoint slides will be available on the blog shortly afterwards.
Look forward to seeing lots of you there.
