Dear Parents/Carers

We can’t believe we are coming to the end of our first half term. We are so proud of how well the children have settled into Year 3, making new friends, working so hard and displaying excellent behaviours. We have had such a fun week, enjoying learning  the poem Macavity by T S Eliot , understanding how to subtract using the column method  in maths and concluding our local history project all about Eastwick school.

This week in Maths we are continuing with subtraction, working on concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to secure our understanding of how to regroup and rename. We will be exploring bar model representations and learning how these can support us in working out word problems.

In English we will studying the poem The Owl and the Pussy Cat by Edward Lear, exploring rhyming words and how nonsense words are used to create effect. The children will then be creating their own fantasy poem in the same style.

In Guided reading we will be learning the poems The Indigo Flamingo by Marc Cowpen and The Sound Collector by Roger McGough. We will be focusing on inference as well as exploring how the poems are structured and what poetic features are used within them.

In ICT we will be looking at Internet safety and designing our own posters and slogans to help us remain safe. In science we will be completing our topic on magnets and forces and in RE we will be studying the meaning behind the Parable of the Lost sheep.

We are so looking forward to seeing you at our Parent Consultations next week. Unfortunately, due to the number of appointments we need to fit in and to run to time for everyone, we are required to stay within the 10 minutes allotted to each appointment. If further time is required to discuss anything related to your child you are always welcome to book a separate meeting for this at a later date.

Please remember if you have any queries, do contact us via our email.
