This week we have danced, explored our grounds for colour and relaxed with another great yoga session with Katie!

Home Practice

We have been very impressed with all the book changing that has been happening again this week. 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 next 20 statutory Year 3 spellings. Have a go and do lots of practise!

For your counting practice keep practising your 8s, forwards and backwards! Why not teach your family how to play 1,2,3?

This week in Year 3

This week we have really enjoyed the beginning of our novel, Finding Alfie by Michael Morpurgo. We have a lot of questions! We met Michael who has gone off to find out more about his Auntie Iris' long lost love Alfie. We wrote some amazing descriptions of the abandoned church and what we think Alfie might be like.

In Maths we have been learing how to use our number facts to help us add and take away using the column addition and subtraction method. We also revisited bridging through 10 when adding and taking away.

In RE we finished our Choices topic, revisiting some of our lessons and responding with our own Choices booklets. Everyone has had some very thoughtful ideas when exploring this topic. Well done Year 3!


In Art, we met Frances Hatch and explored some of her natural art.  We also explored our grounds to find the colour palatte of our school. We created some natural paint and had a go at using these to paint our grounds.
