We have had a great week of new learning in Year 3!

Home Practice

We have been very impressed with all the book changing that has been happening this term. We have seen lots of progress in everyone's reading. Keep it up!

On Sumdog this week we have set 3 challenges. If you finish or find them too tricky, you can access Sumdog Training which will set questions to practice weaker skills.

Your spellings this week are the first 20 statutory Year 3 spellings. Have a go and do lots of practise!

For your counting practise this week, go back and practise counting in 4s forwards and backwards! Have a sing along at home to practice counting in 4s.

This week in Year 3

In English, we have started Cliffhanger by Jacqueline Wilson. It's an exciting story that's keeping us all on the edge of our seats! We have been acting out parts of the story and writing our own play scripts.

In Maths, we have been solving time problems, honing our skills in reading clocks and calculating durations. We have also been solving problems with the calendar and learning the months of the year.

In History, we have been learning about hieroglyphics, exploring the fascinating writing system of ancient Egypt.

Our Art lessons have been equally exciting as we evaluated our animated drawings and planned our final projects, which will be ready to show next week.

In PE, we have continued with our cricket practice and have also been gearing up for Sports Day, working hard to improve our skills and teamwork.

In RE, we started our new topic on choices and how our beliefs can influence the way people feel.

It’s been a busy and productive week, and we’re looking forward to more learning and fun next week!

Have a lovely weekend
