Welcome to Year 3 Penguin Class.
Our class teachers are: Mrs Boucher (on: Mondays and Tuesdays)
& Mrs Belcher (on: Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays).
Monday (indoor PE)
Tuesday (outdoor PE)
Please make sure you have your PE kit in school on Mondays and Tuesdays. If you wear ear-rings please either take them out on these days or, bring some microporous tape into school to cover them over (if they are newly pierced and/or cannot be removed).
Please make sure you bring in the following each day:
A named water bottle with fresh water in it.
A healthy fruit/ vegetable snack to have at morning break if you wish to have something to eat in the morning (before lunchtime).
A coat/hat/pair of gloves/scarf if the weather is cold or if rain is forecast.
A bookbag/ school bag with your reading book and reading record in it (filled in with what you have been reading at home). Note: reading books and reading records will be coming home ASAP - we are waiting for a delivery.
As part of our Scrumdiddlyumptious Topic we have been tasting, evaluating, designing and then making smoothies!
We have written some fantastic mouth-watering recipes for a variety of smoothies as well!
We have been sketching produce from the allotment and remembering to 'Draw what we see, not what we think!'
Items that we studied included: tomatoes, apples, courgettes, runner beans, and last but not least... an enormous marrow! (Week:1)
Today we made Mud Pies! (week:2)
During this week we will be making some Blackberry Muffins! (Planned for Week: 2)
The National Curriculum outlines the spelling rules that children will learn in Year 3 and Year 4:
Reading: We encourage children to read a wide variety of fiction genres, as well as non-fiction. Your support at home can make a crucial difference to your child's reading progress, which in turn often has a significant effect on the quality of their writing. Encourage your child to answer questions about the text, try to predict what happens next, write a book review...
Time tables: The government expectation is that nearly all children will be fluent in all times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of their next school year (Year 4). Regular class work on the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 and 11 times tables this year would ideally be supplemented by quizzing and activities at home. Links to some suggestions are below. Topmarks has links to a wide variety of computer-based education resources and games.
