Thank you to all of you who made it for Meet the Teacher this afternoon, it was lovely to see so many of you. Please look on the school website to find the presentation and all Year 3 information.
All children have worked really hard this week and certainly must feel exhausted! We have started our new topic all about Romans. Why not have a look at the Roman homework for this term. There are lots of great tasks to complete.
Please remember to bring your water bottle each day so that you can keep hydrated.
Enjoy your weekend.
Year 3 Teachers
What a great first week in Year 3! The children have settled in well and have certainly enjoyed their summer break.
We look forward to meeting as many of you as possible next Friday at Meet the teacher afternoon.
PE - Please leave PE kits in school all week as we often add extra sessions of PE when time allows.
This week we have been learning all about space. On Wednesday we made craters using flour, cocoa powder and marbles. Can you explain what a crater is?
Can you tell someone about the space race?
What is food like in space?
See you next week.
The Year 3 Teachers
Dear Parents and Children,
A huge thank you for all your cards, kind words and generous gifts! I have really enjoyed teaching your children and they should be extremely proud of themselves for all they have achieved! I am confident they are ready for the challenges ahead in Year 3 and that they will continue to be brave, resilient, creative and motivated children. Have a wonderful summer and remember to say 'hello' to me children when you pass me in the corridor! Finally - always remember 'You CAN do it!'
Love from Mrs Dunne
We had a wonderful time at Framlingham Castle. Even the rain didn't dampen our spirits! We made friends with a tame baby jackdaw and bravely climbed the battlements. Later we played parachute games and ate lunch in the old bakery. Pretending to swim in the moat was rather smelly! Trying on medieval hats was great fun too. We were proud to be told (by the people who worked there) that we were the best behaved school who had visited! Have a look at a few photos:
We have been working very hard planting seeds and learning about the life cycle of a plant. Can you explain this diagram to your grown ups at home?
We are very excited because we have made Pebble Pets! As you know they are VERY easy to take care of and hardly any trouble at all. Read our persuasive writing to find out why?
We started with white paint and added tiny amounts of colour to make different shades and tones. Then we used the colours to paint our castle pictures. Which colours do you think came out lightest or darkest? Have a look at our pictures:
We had a very energetic time at the Squash Roadshow! We learnt how to control the ball and balance it on a racket. If you would like to learn more squash skills you can join our Squash Club. Ask at the office for details. Have a look at our photos:
The children all arrived back happily after the holidays and I think they have all been busy growing in the sunshine! Everyone looked very tall and grown up.
As always we have been learning lots of exciting things. Today have been writing stories about an adventure with The Gruffalo! Can you remember some adjectives you used to describe him? How about: powerful, ferocious, greedy, dangerous, selfish or venomous? Maybe you could write another story at home?
Thank you to all of you who came to our 'Maths is Fun' games afternoon. We all loved it and hope the grown ups did too? Remember to complete some of the activities in your maths pack!
