SUMMER 2

 

Welcome back to what is your child’s final half-term in Year 3!  As part of the transition process for entering Year 4 in September, your child will be moving to their new class each Tuesday morning.  This is a chance to get to know their new teacher and take part in lots of fun and exciting activities in preparation for September.

 

Topic & Homework

This half-term we will be learning about mountains and rivers across the world. This will be followed by learning about Mexico, with a focus on such aspects as population and lifestyle, geographic features, climate etc.

 

Homework activities will be based on our topic work – each Friday your child will receive an activity to complete and return to school. 

 

P.E & Swimming

P.E will continue to take place on a Wednesday. Please can you make sure that your child has their kit in school on this day so that they can take part (outside clothing - T-shirt and tracksuit top, shorts/tracksuit bottoms and trainers).

 

The children have really been enjoying and making good progress during their swimming sessions at John Smeaton Leisure Centre.  From now on swimming will take place just once a week, every Wednesday morning.  This means that the children will get a much longer swimming session in the pool. 

 

Home reading

As normal reading books will  be sent home along with a 'reading record' for parents/carers to fill in – please note we can only change your child’s book once the reading record has been filled in by yourselves.

 

Now that we are into the warmer weather please can you make sure that your child brings a plastic water bottle and sun protection cream to school – both to be labelled with the child’s name and then left at school.  It is also advisable to send your child with a sun hat.

 

Many thanks

Summer 1 Newsletter

 

Welcome back to school for the Summer term, I hope you all had a terrific half term break.

 

Thank you to everyone who came along to Parents’ evening. It was great to meet so many of you to discuss how your child is getting on at school and how we can work together the best to support their learning.

 

Literacy

In our Language and Literacy group, this half term, we will be reading mystery stories. The children will try to find the clues, put them together, solve the mysteries and in the end write their own exciting version of the story.

 

Your children have already been set spellings and have taken their tests on them. This happens weekly, if you need more information about it please don’t hesitate to contact any member of staff in our class.

 

We’ve been practising our joined up handwriting, copies will be sent home for further practice.

 

Topic

Our new topic is ‘Islamic Golden Age’. The children will be learning about the five pillars of Islam, how Muslims pray, what the Quran is and Prophet Mohammed’s teachings.  We will learn about Muslim inventors and familiarise ourselves with different stories from the 1001 Arabian Nights. Islamic art, patterns and symmetry will be parts of our work too. We will talk about why Baghdad was important that time and find out why people went on crusades.

 

Homework

The homework tasks set reinforce the learning children complete each week at school, and will support their progress. Please encourage your child to complete their homework every week. Homework will be sent home on a Friday and is expected to be handed in by the following Wednesday.

 

As you already know swimming is starting next week and the children are looking forward to this very much. Please make sure that your child brings their swimming costume and a towel to school on Wednesdays and Fridays from now on. P.E. will no longer be on Mondays but will stay on Wednesdays.

 

Many thanks

SPRING 2

 

 

Welcome back after the half-term break!  This half-term promises to be a very exciting one with yet another class trip planned!

 

The children greatly enjoyed our previous visit to the Viking Village at Murton Park in York, where they spent the day as a ‘real Viking!’ This involved them being extremely busy with many Viking related jobs such as grinding wheat to make bread, making oil lamps and collecting firewood to light and heat their longhouse and being taught how to protect their village from raiders.  The children’s behaviour was excellent and they showed themselves to be a real credit to our school.

 

Topic

Our new topic for this half-term is 'South America'. We will therefore be focusing on such countries as Brazil, Argentina and Chile.  We will be learning about both animals and people that live in the rainforest and Pantanal, studying climate along with how people have adapted to their environment, focusing on the physical features of each country (such as mountains, deserts etc) and comparing people’s lifestyles in South America to our own.  

 

Class Trip: Wednesday 9th March – Yorkshire Wildlife Park

 

Your child will have the opportunity to experience ‘first-hand’ many of the South American animals that we have been learning about in our topic. In addition to this, they will also have the chance to see many other animals at the Wildlife Park from all over the world.

Please could your return your child’s permission slip and £10 payment as soon as possible.

 

P.E

P.E will continue to take place on a Monday and Wednesday. Please can you make sure that your child has their kit in school on these days so that they can take part (warm outside clothing - T-shirt and tracksuit top, tracksuit bottoms and trainers - any colour).

 

Home reading and homework

As normal reading books will  be sent home along with a 'reading record' for parents/carers to fill in – please note we can only change your child’s book once the reading record has been filled in by yourselves.

This half-term’s homework will focus on South America. There will be a number of activities for your child to choose from and complete at their own pace.

 

Many thanks 

Miss Hobson and Mrs Jaber

World Book day

We have invited an author, poet and story teller, Conrad Burdekin to our school. He is going to deliver some fun sessions in lower Key stage 2. These sessions will be a mix between interactive poetry and interactive story telling. I’m sure we will all have a wonderful time.

Please encourage your children to read a wide range of books, including poetry, fiction and non- fiction apart from the books we send home.

In this half term we will be learning about the Anglo –Saxons and Vikings. We will be looking at the pictures of the different objects that have been discovered in Sutton Hoo ship burial. Please check out the Yorvik Viking Centre’s website for upcoming events and programs.

Autumn Term 2

 

Welcome back! We have an exciting half term ahead! Thank you to everyone who came along to Parents’ evening. It was great to meet so many of you to discuss how your child is getting on at school and how we can work together the best to support their learning so that they can continue making progress throughout Year 3.

Topic

This half term Y3 will be studying The Celts versus The Romans. We will be looking at various battles that the Romans fought and making our own shields.  We will have a go at making our mosaic self-portraits as well. The school has organised for a touring Drama group to come visit us in school. They will help us recreate a Roman battle to discover how the Romans lived on a daily basis.

PE

Our PE days will continue to be on Mondays and Wednesdays. With the cold weather approaching, we would advise jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt and trainers for outdoor PE lessons.  

Homework

Reading books and learning logs will be sent home on Fridays so please ensure your child returns them by Wednesday.. There is going to be a big push on our times tables. We would really appreciate it if you could support your child learning the 2x, 5x and 10x tables. Also, any help with addition or subtraction sums would be much appreciated.

 

Many thanks,

Mrs Jaber, Miss Hobson and Mrs Reynolds

 

Roman Day

On Thursday we had a fantastic day with our visitors who gave us an insight of how the Celts and Romans lived in Britain.

The children had a chance to experience how hard the Roman soldiers’ lives were by trying on the extremely heavy armour and helmets and carrying the shields.

Have a look at some of our photos.

Picture 1 We tried on some Roman clothes.
