Can you believe there are only 2 days left of Year 3!
I am so proud of all that the children have achieved this year and I look forward to our final few days in Year 3 together.
A few handy reminders for the remaining days at school.
On Monday please remember to bring a carrier bag or two to take your books home.
On Tuesday please bring your picnic breakfast and a blanket to sit on. This will be a great time to celebrate the end of term.
Year 3 will be completing the Rushmere Swimathon during their Monday lesson. Children will swim aided or unaided for as many laps as they can. This will be a fun experience for the children.
Please remember to get your sponsor forms completed and returned to the school office.
How far do you think you will be able to swim?
In English we have been reading the book 'A River' by Marc Martin. We have enjoyed exploring the illustrations and imagining our own journeys on a small, sailing boat.
In art we created clay tiles to represent the different places on the journey. This week we painted the tiles and then covered them with PVA glue. We think they look great!
Why not tell your grown up which location your tile represents.
Mr Fykin has set us an extreme reading challenge for the holidays.
To complete this challenge we would like you to take a photo reading your book in the most unusual place. However, please ensure that a grown up is with you and that you are safe.
Examples could include; reading whilst at the park, reading in the supermarket or even reading in the paddling pool!
Where could you read your book? Here are a few examples.
Then send your photos to email@example.com with the title extreme reading.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter break and I look forward to seeing you back at school on Wednesday 24th April.
This week we have been challenging our times table knowledge and applying it to the inverse operation, which is division.
In Year 2 we used sharing circles to answer questions like 21 ÷3, but now we know we can count in 3's until we get to 21. Therefore we know the answer is ....7!
Below are some images to help you recognise the inverse of multiply. Why not try these questions:
35 ÷ 5=
64 ÷ 8=
18 ÷ 2 =
24 ÷ 3 =
Today year 3 were very lucky and we had a Hockey coach come in for a taster session. We learnt how to hold a stick, dribble and played some competitive games.
There will be a club starting Monday which will be lead by a Hockey coach. Letters will have gone home today but there is a copy.
We are learning lots in maths about statistics, can you try this question at home?
Have a great weekend!
Some children in Class 4 are in a club.
This table shows the club they are in.
We have really been enjoying our Roman topic and all had a great time on our trip to Colchester castle last week!
Isobel's mum kindly brought in some Roman artefacts from the Ipswich museum for us to look at.
We have been using these in our Art sessions using the new drawing and shading techniques we've been learning!
