Please take a minute to watch our video of us singing our favourite Spanish song where we practise our numbers AND our colours.
Please find attached the new spellings list for the coming half term. As a class we are trialling a more practical approach to learning our spellings, incorporating some of the active learning strategies we were recently taught through Burn2Learn.
As I am sure you are now aware, in year 3 we are incredibly lucky to have ukulele lessons with our fabulous instructor Mr Cairns. He comes in on a Wednesday morning after breaktime and we have 45 minutes of fun activities with our ukuleles but also our voices. Watch this space, videos and pictures to come over the coming year (and hopefully some amazing performances too!)
Below is our lovely teacher Mr Cairns posing with his own ukulele.
Welcome to Year 3
What an exciting and fast paced start to the school year we have had! It is lovely to see you all back from summer and ready to learn. I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know you all and am looking forward to the year ahead together.
Thank you very much to all those parents who came to the welcome talk last Friday, below you should find the timetable and long term plan we briefly discussed.
Homework will be set weekly in the follow subjects:
* Maths (alternate weeks) DUE IN TUESDAY
* English (alternate weeks) DUE IN TUESDAY
* Spelling DUE IN THURSDAY
Year 3 have a red A4 book for their maths and English homework and their spellings will be coming home in a plastic wallet for the moment (subject to change) As part of our pupil promises, decided by year 3, homework needs to be handed in every week.
I also gave out a 'cheat sheet' which gives a nice overview of the types of grammar and words we will be looking at over the coming year. If at any point you would like further information please just let me know and I will happily arrange this.
Investors in Pupils
As part of the successful scheme year 3 chose a Roald Dahl theme for their display and have created their own individual 'enormous' crocodiles to move along as they progress with their target.
