Thank you to all our parents: The entire Year 3 team and children would like to extend a huge thank you to you all for supporting your children’s learning this year. In particular, we would like to thank all the volunteers who have given up their time to help us, accompanying us on trips, hearing readers, supporting us in class and walking to and from swimming, without you, we would not have been able to give the children so many great experiences. We’d also like to extend a particular thank you to Rosie McEwan a parent and local artist specialising in jewellery, and her husband, who have given up considerable time these past few weeks to help the children to create some beautiful pendants in forest school. We are sure you will agree that the results are striking, and the children will really treasure them as a memory of Year 3. Thank you all.
Maths: This week, the children have completed their unit on measurement by adding and subtracting litres and millilitres as well as taking a final assessment.
English: In English, they have continued to write their non-chronological reports focused on animals.
Year 3 Open Morning: We will be opening the year 3 classrooms to parents on Tuesday 23rd July between 10 and 11:40. The children would like to share some of their work from the summer term and their efforts with developing the outside area. Please come anytime between 10 and 11.40 for a 20 minute slot to avoid overcrowding in the classroom.
Reading: We hope that as many children as possible will take part in the Library Reading Challenge this summer in preparation for Year 4 and as a fun way of passing the time over the holidays.
Maths: Many children will find it valuable to continue to practise their multiplication tables over the summer and perhaps begin to learn new ones. Remember that in Year 4, children will be taking part in a national times tables assessment, for which they will need to know all of their multiplication tables up to 12x12. The following websites are a great way to learn their tables https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/supermovers/45213394. Please follow this link to a site which replicates the times table assessment children will undertake in Year 4. You can select the multiplications to be tested on and how long for each question. https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check
We hope you enjoy the summer break and look forward to welcoming all the children back in the Autumn term.
Thank you, Mrs Baker, Mrs Loudwill, Mrs Reay, Mrs Wyatt and Mrs Sayers
