Year 3

Weekly Update Friday 21st June 2024

Summary of this week:

Year 3 have had a brilliant week delving into some tricky maths quizzes to see what we have learnt throughout Year 3. We have also been writing formal letters to an Eastwick teacher of our choice. We published them at the end of the week and even delivered them to the teachers too. We wonder if we will get any replies…

We enjoyed our Computing lesson, learning how to turn excel spreadsheet data into graphs and we also enjoyed our Science lesson, where we set up an experiment with celery and food colouring to explore how water transports within plants.

 

 

Our learning next week:

 

Maths: We will be continuing our new unit about different types of lines.

English: We will be starting our final writing unit based on the storybook “Ratpunzel”, learning about adventure narratives and unpicking the different characters in the story.

Foundation:  

In Geography, we will be learning about Human and Physical features in our local area, Bookham.

In Science, we will be observing our enquiry with celery in blue food colouring, to understand how water transports within plants.

In Art, we will be building and painting our sculptures that we designed in the previous week!

In PSHE, we will be learning about good bedtime routines.

In RE, we will be learning about Mitzvah – the Jewish event that celebrates equality and fairness.

In PE, we will be learning about Tri-Golf with the PE coaches and Orienteering with Mrs Line!

  

Homework

The Maths homework sheet will be given out on Tuesdays – please could children complete this and hand it in by Friday so teachers can mark, provide feedback and hand back by the following week.

 

Please continue to practise the weekly words at home in whichever way your child finds most useful. We also cover these words during our spelling lessons, so it is great if the children have prior knowledge of what we are covering!

 

Children are also encouraged to continuing using Times Table Rockstars for extra multiplication practise.

 

 Notices & Reminders:

Please can parents send in any cardboard boxes or junk modelling that they may have at home, to support our Art lesson on sculptures next week. Ideally, we need a wide variety of cereal boxes, toilet roll tubes, pizza boxes, tissue boxes or anything else made from thin cardboard that we can cut and model! THANK YOU!


Thank you as always,
Miss Bullock, Mrs Martyn, Mrs Harding, Mr Barnard, Mrs Porter and the Year 3 support staff.
