What a fantastic week Year 3!!
Thank you for such a great week of learning - I have been so proud of the way that you have taken on your Stone Age learning. You know so much and have confidently used the information to write sentences. You have settled in to year 3. Next week is our last week before half term- that's gone quick hasn't it?
A huge welcome to our two new students Najla and Aaya! You have settled in so well to Year 3 and we are so excited to go on a learning journey with you. Well done to year 3 for making them so welcome :)
Next week we will be filming our video for the poetry slam. This weeks homework is to carry on learning the poem off by heart (this means being able to say the poem without looking at the words) . Practice it with your adults or siblings who can give you prompts if you get a bit stuck. Good luck!
Look, say, cover, write, check is a method of learning spelling, where children:
This weeks spellings:
Put your words into a sentence for example Yesterday I went to the park with my cousins. Write these sentences in your homework book. Have a lovely and relaxing weekend year 3!
Hello Year 3!
Write me a letter making sure you think about capital letters to start your sentences and full stops to end your sentences.
Paragraph 1- Tell me about your first few weeks back in the classroom. How does it feel to be back in the classroom doing learning?
Is there anything you would like to tell me about how you learn best? What is going well and what are you struggling with?
Paragraph 2 Tell me how playtime is going? Are you enjoying your playtime? Are you enjoying any particular games? Are you enjoying playing with the equipment?
I look forward to reading your letters :)

Please sign your child's reading record every week and read with them. We have stapled this set of questions into the front of their reading record- it will allow you to dig deeper into the book (this is why they have a book for a whole week so).
Another fantastic week!! You have made me so proud with how you are settling in, and with the way you have taken on so many challenges. We have been continuing to explore place value and the children have been enjoying reading 'Stone Girl Bone Girl'.
Parents/ carers - it has been lovely to begin to get to know you all and thank you so much for your patience with the new way that we dismiss-it is helping to keep us all safe! With the new restrictions you might feel that you aren't able to communicate as easily with the year 3 team (Alice,Zara and Clare), please be assured that you can come to us with any question or concern, however big or smal You can speak to us at the school gate or ask me to give you a call. Alternatively you can book in an appointment. Reading books will be going out today.
Homework - The Stone Age
This week we have learnt about different sentences . For homework we will be focusing on questions.
Remember that we begin the sentence with a capital letter and we end the sentence with a question mark (?). We also use question starters (who, where, what, how, why,when) For example :
How did Mary Anning survive being struck by lightning ?
This week for homework I would like to create 3 questions that you would ask a Stone Age person. You can ask them anything about their life - think about what we have learnt about them so far. An example might be
How do you make weapons?
I would also like you to find 1 really interesting fact about the Stone Age. Here is a reliable link:

If you want to ‘stand’ for election you will need to talk to your class/school to tell them your reasons and persuade them to vote for you!
For homework everyone in KS2 will write a speech.
Do something this weekend that makes you smile. It might be reading a good book, playing in the park, speaking to your family, baking or cooking something yummy!
If you have any questions or concerns about homework or anything else please come and speak to me.
Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and request for me to ring you back.
Have a lovely weekend- keep safe!
