Just keep Swimming!
It has been another busy week in Year 3. This week the children finished their work about the human body and are excited for our topic next week about plants. Children were sent home with a knowledge organiser with some key information and vocabulary. In English lessons the children have been looking at the use of subordinate conjunctions and clauses to add extra information to their sentences. The children have also looked at some different radio adverts so they are ready to start planning and writing their own. In maths we have been looking at different methods to help multiply a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number. The children have tried particularly hard in maths this week and have shown some great progress.
This week the children have been set a short piece of homework on spag.com. On Friday children were given their login details. Please do speak to myself or Mrs. Ashington if there are any issues or difficulties with completing it.
On Monday Year 3 start their block of swimming lessons. We have suggested to the children that they come to school with their swim wear underneath their school uniform. No bikinis or baggy board shorts to be worn. Children need to bring a towel, swimming hat and clean underwear in a swimming bag. Children do not need to bring floats etc as these are all available at the pool for children to use if required. If possible, we recommend and ask that earrings are removed. We have spoken to children about the expectations when swimming and tried to answer all of their questions to put their minds at ease.
A reminder that our trip is on Tuesday 5th February. Please return forms by Friday 1st February at the very latest. School pack lunches can not be ordered on the day of the trip. If your child does require a school pack lunch it needs to be ordered by Friday 1st February.
We are noticing a slight slip in the number of children reading each week. Please try to encourage your child to read as much as possible and record this in their reading journals.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
