Weekly Update Friday 19th April 2024

Summary of this week:

Welcome back to school, Year 3! What a lovely start it has been with the sun shining. The children have really enjoyed their first swimming lessons and have got stuck straight into their new History topic – The Egyptians. In English, we have started learning about Non Chronological reports and we have been memorising a text about a fictional monster called The Deadly Mudditch! In Maths, we have continued our learning about time, reading clock faces to the nearest minute and calculating intervals of time too.  

Our learning next week:

Maths: We will be continuing to learn about time, measuring time intervals in seconds. We will also be calculating the duration of time using hours and minutes.


English: We will be planning and writing our own non chronological reports about a fictional monster of our choice!



In History, we will be learning about some famous Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs.

In Science, we will be learning about the parts of a plant and what their jobs are.

In RE, we will be learning about The Guru Granth Sahib (Sikh’s holy book).

In Art, we will be learning about Ancient Egyptian patterns and symbols and trying to create these ourselves.

In Computing, we will be learning about databases and how to efficiently log data.
In PE, we will be taking part in athletics activities to prepare for Sports Day and continuing our swimming lessons.



The Maths homework sheet will be given out on Tuesday – 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:

A polite reminder that all children must wear swimming hats during their lessons, or they won’t be allowed in the pool.


A reminder about the PTA’s Go For Gold event on Friday morning (25th April). The children will take part in a range of activities including mini hurdles, throwing and long jump. The children will rotate around the activities with their classes and parents are invited to watch. Please drop the children off to classes at normal time for registration and then we will meet you on the top field at 9.15am if you wish to watch!

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