This week in Year 3…(20.7.18)

Well, we’re nearly there!  What a fantastic year it has been.  We have been so lucky to have had such a great bunch of children to teach. 

It’s been a busy week completing units of work and getting ready for the end of term.  The children have proudly brought home their marble mazes tonight.  They have worked really hard to produce such good quality, useable products.  We hope you all enjoy playing with them.  Well done, children.

We are looking forward to having a fun last day on Monday.  The children raised £71 from the muffin sale using the community garden fruits, so we will be having a little party.  The children will be making fruit kebabs and mixing their very own mocktails. Then, the children will be choosing new wet play box toys and games which we will be purchasing for them to use in Year 4. In the afternoon the children will be having their well earned Golden Time.  They are allowed to bring in toys and games from home to play with.

Thank you for all your support this year, have a lovely weekend and only one more day to go!

This week in Year 3…(13.7.18)

Well, it’s been a busy week! On Tuesday the children enjoyed watching the Year 6 production and were wowed by the performances and singing. The Year 6 team did a great job.  

The children coped well with the disappointment of the football.  It hit us hard as we have been slightly obsessed with football this term.  We told each other jokes the next morning to cheer us all up!

Many thanks to all of you who came to Year 3’s homemade garden fruits muffin sale.  The children thoroughly enjoyed using the fruits that they had grown in our community garden to add to their muffin mixes and make delicious muffins to sell.  We hope you also enjoyed the superb packaging that the children created using their 3D nets expertise from our maths lessons earlier in the week.  There was a real buzz around the sale as the children couldn’t help but show the pride on their faces.  Well done Year 3s.

Only a week and a day to go! Enjoy your weekend.

This week in Year 3…(7.7.18)

For homework this week the children were asked to watch some, if not all, of the England football match.  We hope they really enjoyed it! We did!  Well done, England.  We will be using the match next week to discuss the learning behaviours that the players showed and how we can learn from them, including Gareth Southgate’s management skills! Many thanks for all your support with the stadium homework over the last few weeks.  The children created a fantastic display and were very proud sharing their learning with others. This project has really gripped us all.

In the community garden the children have been very busy watering and harvesting some of the ripe fruits and vegetables.  We will be using the fruits to make muffins which the children will be selling after school.  More information about this will be coming soon!  The children have enjoyed writing thank you cards for the local companies who supported us. We were very lucky.

Next week, taking advantage of the amazing weather, the children will be learning practically about capacity (ml and L).  Please could we ask you to send your child in on Monday with a couple of containers that we can use. 

Thank you for your ongoing support.

This week in Year 3…(1.7.18)

We hope you all had a great time at the Kings Furlong Summer Fayre on Friday night, it was lovely to see so many of you supporting our fantastic PTA.  It looked like the magician was lots of fun!  

In school this week the children wrote some great letters to our Year 2 children.  These will be published and sent to the Year 2s early next week.  It was lovely hearing our Year 3s telling us how important these letters were to them last year when they received theirs.

In the afternoons the children have been learning new woodwork skills.  They are really enjoying measuring and cutting the wood for their marble maze toys.  There has also been lots of PE in Year 3.  The children’s hockey skills are really improving especially during game-playing. They have coped well with shorter lessons and more shade breaks due to the hot weather.

Next week we will be walking to the Kings Furlong roundabout and carrying out a traffic survey to help the children to fully understand about the infrastructure that is needed for a new football ground.  They will use the information they find to create tally and bar charts.

Tomorrow there is an INSET day in school so we look forward to seeing the children on Tuesday morning.  As the weather continues to be so hot, please remind your child to bring in a water bottle and sun hat.
