Important Information - Trips

 

Next half term, we shall be looking at forces in science and we have arranged a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry. In the Summer term, our topic is about the Romans and we have arranged for a trip to Ribchester Museum. Please ensure you sign and return the slip, which has been sent home yesterday, to give permission for your child to attend as well as include £11 to cover the coaches and admission fees to workshops.

 

Look out for a letter about a trip to Westbury Gardens United Reformed Church as part of our Religious Studies learning!

 

Please ensure your child has their swimming kit every Tuesday, including a swimming cap if they have long hair.

 

In other news...

I can't believe we are at the last week of the first Spring term! Thank you to all those children who brought in volcano research and models - they've been very interesting! we even had one which 'erupted' when we poured in white vinegar - magic!

 

I have updated on the Spelling City website (link in websites on this page) lists of spellings from this term and next term's will be up soon - watch this space! Even though we may have moved on from these word lists, please keep practising them - you never know when they might come in handy!

 

At the start of this term, we had a wonderful Stone Age Topic Day involving going in to a 'cave' in the music room and reading a story, painting rocks using images of cave paintings and a fossil expert came in to talk to us about fossils! It was a wonderful day and we even had debates about whether it would be good or bad to live in a cave! I think the majority of children liked the idea of living in a cave however, when some negative ideas about what life would be like were suggested, many changed their minds! 

 

We have asked the children to try and complete a project at home all about volcanoes. They could work on their own or as part of a group. It might involve making a model of a volcano, researching famous volcanoes, explaining how what happens when they erupt and/or finding out what happens to places where they have erupted. 

 

 

 

 

This week we are focusing on Road Safety. We are looking at how to keep safe near roads as well as ways we can make the roads around school a safer place to be. Do you have any ideas? If so, please send them in with your child or come and speak to someone at school. I know that we would all like to make it safer for everyone! 

I have put a link on here to the Brake! Road Safety Campaign 2017. Please have a look! 

Thank you! 

Welcome back after such a great October half term! We're absolutely flying through the Autumn term! The new topic is all about being a 'Healthy Human' and involves a lot of science work around the importance of a balanced diet and an active lifestyle.

Maybe you could keep a food/activity diary with your child in their homework book.

 

Thank you for ensuring that you child reads everyday - there are many children who are benefiting from this support at home so please keep it up! Reading books must be brought everyday and ideally a signature in their home reading records is very much appreciated.

 

We are starting a new spelling scheme so please bare with us with your child's new spellings, they will be being sent out and posted on the spelling website link very soon! In the meantime, it is worthwhile practising the given words from last term, as well as a new list of adverbs that have been added to the Spelling City Website, thank you.

Wow! We are already half way through the first Autumn term! How quick has time gone?! sad

 

Anyway, we are hoping to go on a local walk in the next week or so to look at the different land use in our local area and compare buildings to the past and present. Please make sure your child comes to school with a waterproof coat in preparation for this walk. We are hoping for a dry day but you never know with the good old British weather so 'Be Prepared' as they say! surprise

 

Thank you for ensuring that you child reads everyday - there are many children who are benefiting from this support at home so please keep it up! Reading books must be brought everyday and ideally a signature in their home reading records is very much appreciated. 

 

Swimming is progressing well and most children have the correct kit. A reminder though that children with long hair do need their own swimming hat thank you. 

 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to come and see me.

Miss Sweet 

Welcome to 3S! I hope you all had a wonderful summer break and are ready to get going on all the wonderful things we shall be doing in year 3! A massive welcome to you all.

 

Please find on here information about homework, reading, trips that are coming up, links to really good websites to support your child's learning in all aspects of the curriculum. 

 

We hope that you'll be able to support your child at home with their reading daily, practising times tables (in particular 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables), completing home reading tasks in their yellow books - one task per week and of course spellings. There will soon be a link to a website to support learning spellings so keep an eye out for this!

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Regards,

Miss Sweet
