Weekly Update 

Friday 21st January


Dear Parents and Children,

A highlight of our week was erupting our class model volcano as we learnt about how to stay safe in a volcanic eruption.

In English, we will be looking at newspaper reports. We will be studying the features of a newspaper report and learning how to pose questions in an interview. We will be reading the story Goldilocks Rocks and using this as a stimulus to base our reports on.

In Maths, we will be learning how to measure length. We will learn how to write length in metres and centimetres and move on to writing length in kilometres and metres by the end of the week.

In guided reading we will be looking at a section of text from Roald Dahl’s the Witches. We will be looking at summarising the text, developing prediction and comprehension skills.

In RE, we will be continuing our learning about Sikhism, with a focus on the importance of the Gurdwara for the Sikh community.

In Topic, we will be learning about earthquakes, investigating what causes earthquakes to happen and we will make models of the layers of the Earth using plasticine

Please could we have donations of empty small take away tubs for the following week’s lesson.

In PSHE we will be learning about the pants rule and making sure we know how to keep ourselves safe.

In other areas, we will be continuing to visit the library again from Thursday afternoon. Thank you to those of you who have returned books from last term. Reminder slips will be sent home to those children who still have books to return.

We will continue taking part in PE lessons on Tuesdays with Mrs Line. On Thursdays, with Love the Ball, we will be focusing on skills in learning invasion games. Please ensure your child is wearing warm clothing and has a waterproof coat with them on Thursday when PE lessons are outside.

Please do continue to contact us via our year three email address if you have any questions or information you want to share with us. We hope that it will be another great week.
