Weekly Update Friday 1st December 2023

Summary of this week:

Year 3 had a really fun start to the week heading off to the Natural History Museum on Monday morning! We explored the Mammal Zone, the Creepy Crawly Room and also the Dinosaur Zone. We were lucky enough to watch a show in the Attenborough Studio about Ocean Life, food chains and pollution in our oceans.


We also really enjoyed making our Christingles and learning about the meaning of the different parts on the orange, for the Christingle Service on Friday at St Nicholas’ Churchteachers thought we sang the songs beautifully!

Our learning next week:

We are really looking forward to the Christmas Fair activities on Friday, including a visit to Santa’s Grotto and shopping for Christmas gifts!


Maths:  We will be exploring division and understanding how to divide, using our knowledge of times tables.


English: We will be writing our own diary entries based on Mimi and the Mountain Dragon, designing our own dragon creatures and imagining what happened when the dragon was spotted!



In Geography, we will be drawing maps from a birds-eye-view and writing instructions directing people to move using North, South, East and West.

In D&T, we will be finishing the decorations on our papier mâché penguins, adding feet, beaks, eyes and wings!

In Art, we will be learning about botanical drawings and learning how to sketch the shapes of different plants and flowers.

In PE, we will be learning gymnastics and rugby.
In Computing, we will be learning how to use Scratch.



Please complete the Maths homework sheet that will be given out on a Tuesday. We also encourage the children to log into Times Table Rockstars and play some of the games to practise their times tables!
