What an amazing group of sporting superstars we have in Year 3!

We were delighted to be able to award the whole year group with a Superstar certificate this week. Well done everyone!

The children competed with enthusiasm and sportsmanship throughout the morning, while encouraging other year groups as well.

We are certainly enjoying our current novel, Around the World in 80 days, and learning even more about the features of diaries. Next week, we look forward to sharing extracts from the diaries written for homework.

Time has also been spent identifying the key geographical features of the UK, using atlases and our Physical Geography Encyclopaedias.  This enabled us to place well known human and physical features onto UK maps of our own. Fascinating!

We will be well placed to plot the journey of Phileas Fogg in the week to come - as long as he crosses the American plains safely …


Friday 16th June

Another exciting week was had in Year 3!

We began our new topic Around the World in 28 days. We learned about the author Jules Verne and how he was born and raised in France. Although he studied law, his interest lay in the theatre which resulted in him changing course and becoming a writer. Lucky us!

This week also saw Year 3 learning new drumming skills with Gafro. The children had a fabulous time and look forward to spending time with him in Year 4.

Our focus in Maths has been fractions this week. The children thoroughly enjoyed the investigation tasks and sharing their findings. We look forward to more fun fractions in the weeks ahead.

Following Sports Day preparations, the children are really looking forward to Tuesday. We have reminded them to ensure they are wearing plenty of sunscreen and have a named water bottle with them as the forecast is for more sunny weather!

We look forward to seeing you there!
