Happy New Year!!
Happy New Year to you all and we hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Thank-you again for our very thoughtful cards and gifts.
Year 3 have started the new year full of energy and positivity. Already we have learnt about algorithms and invented our very own machines!
In English we are moving on to persuasive writing. To launch this the children have invented their own machines or products that they would like to sell. They will be making posters and writing a persuasive advert before trying to get Mrs Ashington and Miss Clark to buy their products in our very own Dragons Den.
In maths we are starting the year with our 3, 4 and 8 times table. Times Tables Rockstars and Hit the Button are excellent ways of getting the children to practise at home.
Our topic for the next week is computing. We will be focusing on programming. On Monday the children will be receiving their Knowledge Organisers which will help them with a lot of the new vocabulary that they will be learning.
In our indoor PE lessons we will be focusing on indoor athletics and our outside lessons we will be continuing with attacking and defending. Our swimming lessons will start on Monday 28th January and they last for 8 school weeks. A reminder that children will need to bring in swimming costumes/shorts, swimming hats and a towel to school on swimming days. Please speak to a member of the Year 3 team if you have any concerns or queries about swimming lessons.
