We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable Easter break, and we would like to welcome everyone back to the Summer Term.
Summer term is always a busy time for children in Year 3 with lots of new learning taking place as well as consolidating previously learnt skills. English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations. In our Science work we will be studying plants followed by light, our Geography learning will concentrate on changes in the local area and Europe and our Art will be looking at perspective and how to make buildings 3 dimensional. As History is taught chronologically we will be moving onto learning about the Romans, where we hope to include an educational trip later on in the term. Our DT learning will link to the Romans, as we will be designing shields.
For more details about our learning this term please click on the Summer Term Overview.
Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions. Alternatively, you could provide your child with plasters to cover stud earrings.
Year 3 PE sessions are:
Monday – Gym/ Dance
Thursday – Soccor 2000
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times including an indoor P.E. kit and outdoor P.E. kit; PE kits can be purchased from the school office.
Children in Year 3 receive regular homework: one maths or English homework each week, a creative homework for the term and spellings for both class and phonics.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day. We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
To bring an end to our Roman History topic this term, class 3 were lucky enough to visit Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery where they thoroughly enjoyed hands on experience with real Roman artefacts and become real life Romans. This included a number of activities such as dressing up as the Roman's did, marching as Roman soldiers and discovering many different remains that have been found in Britain to come to their own conclusion about how they lived their lives. Thank you Class 3 for a wonderful day of joy and representing our school so beautifully!
Year 3 gave an excellent performance to the whole school and a full house of family, that included playing of the ukulele and some fabulous singing!
After 7 weeks of learning to play the Cornet and Baritone, class 3 enjoyed their music concert to mark the end of their lessons. They have thoroughly enjoyed learning to play these brass instruments and look forward to begin playing the Djembe drum next term. Thanks to all parents who joined us for this musical morning.
Chinese New Year Celebrations
To celebrate Chinese New Year, Class 3 spent the afternoon creating Chinese drums with paper plates, lolly sticks, string and beads before decorating them with Chinese symbols. They worked together to thread the beads which was particularly hard but made some fantastic piece of art and music.
