Aspen and Hawthorn Weekly Update – 23rd May 2024

 

Dates for your diary:

Friday 24th May: School closed – Inset Day.

Friday 7th June - Cycle track visit (bring in bikes and helmets please).

 

We are very proud of the children for their wonderful participation in sports day this week. Thank you to everyone who came to support them.

 

Our learning this week:

Maths: In preparation for our work on time after half term, we recapped reading time at quarter hour intervals this week. Many children are still finding this difficult. It would be hugely beneficial if you could practise reading time at o’clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to the hour, on an analogue clock, with your child over half term. The expectation for the end of Year 3 is that children can read time at 5-minute intervals.

 

English/Computing: The children shared their presentations about a country of their choosing with their reading buddies this week.

 

Science: Continuing with our data handling topic, the children had a go at interpreting two-way tables. This learning linked to our work on light and we recapped how to protect ourselves from the sun.

 

DT/French: We were impressed with the children’s cooking on Monday when they made their mini quiches. They enjoyed tasting them as part of our French café today where they practised the vocabulary needed for greetings and ordering food (see photos below).

 

Homework:

We have noticed very few children are completing the homework set each week. If you are struggling to access the homework, please get in touch.

 

Reading: We expect children to read 5 times per week. Year 3 children can write their own home reading in their yellow logs. Please continue to listen to your child read over the half term break.

 

Times Table Rock Stars: The children need to complete their TTRS homework each week. We expect children in Year 3 to spend at least 15 minutes on TTRS each week.

 

Spelling: Please practise the common exception words on Spelling Shed over the next two weeks. We are noticing many children are still spelling these incorrectly in their written work.

 

We wish you a restful half term break.
