It has been a lovely first two days in Year 3 and the children have settled in well.
Next week, we will be launching our first History topic about Ancient Egypt. A topic Knowledge Organiser has been sent out today for you to look at with your child over the weekend. We will be ending the topic with an Ancient Egypt day on Friday 28th September. Children can dress up if they wish to and parents are invited into school at the end of the day to see what we have been learning about.
Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. For the next five weeks we also have Outdoor Learning with Mr Earle. Please ensure full indoor and outdoor PE kits are in school at all times.
Yesterday the children selected their own reading book to read over the weekend and next week. As the children are now in Key Stage 2 they will do Accelerated Reader. Next week the children will complete a Star Reader test and the result of this will give the children a number and they can then select a book with that number on. When they have read the book, children do a mini quiz on the computer to assess their understanding of the book. Children will then select a new book. Like with the system used in Key Stage 1, children are able to go up levels throughout the year dependent on their quiz scores.
Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any queries or concerns.
Miss Clark and Mrs Ashington :)
