This week… we have finished creating our amazing hero myths in English. We have been so impressed by everybody’s wonderful stories and fantastic presentation. We look forward to sharing them with your families at our parent consultation meetings after half tem. In maths, we have been looking at decomposing three digit numbers into two and three addends. In art, we started to learn about perspective and created some landscapes based on the work of L.S. Lowry. We enjoyed our pyjama party this afternoon too.
Reading for pleasure is very important and we would like you to take the opportunity to read whenever you can. Remember to get you parents to sign your reading records if they hear or see you reading.
This week we have been reading:
· The Accidental Prime Minister (class book)
We will be practising the following spellings next week, focussing on words with common suffixes. We will be testing you on Friday after half term.
Times tables have already been sent home in your reading records. Keep practising using TTRockstars too! In class, we will be focussing on the nine times tables again.
After half term … In English, we will using the book Tuesday to practise our comprehension skills. In maths, we will be using known facts to add and subtract. We will start to look at friendships in PSHE. In our topic lessons, we will be learning about the European Union. In art, we will be creating landscapes inspired by the work of David Hockney.
We will be joined by Miss Georgina Sparks after the break. Miss Sparks is completing her second school experience as part of her teacher training and will be with Year 3 for six weeks.
Very well done for your hard work this half term. Have a wonderful break and we look forward to seeing you back at school on February 24th.
