Welcome to the Year 3 blog 2018-2019

The children have all had a great start to Year 3 and have settled well into the new routines. 
We have been really proud of the independence they have shown when leaving at the end of the day and how sensible they have been during this new change in their school routine.

We have already been very busy in class!

In Science we have looked at becoming personal trainers and analysed someone's nutrition intake to see how it can be improved. Next week, Mrs Hindley will be coming in to do a presentation on healthy food and the importance of eating well. The children will also get to try some healthy foods.In DT the children are also looking at various food groups and designing their own healthy snack for their friend, based around a book. 

In English the children have started to write their own autobiographies. It would be lovely to have a photo of each child that they can add to their autobiography, so please send one in next week if possible.

In Maths the children have been using lots of practical equipment to investigate and explore the place value of 3 digit numbers. We have been delighted with their problem solving skills and their perseverance when an activity gets tricky. 

In Geography we have started our new topic about 'The Sunshine State'. We started by thinking about what geography is all about and have begun to look at the famous theme park in the USA.

In RE we have been reflecting on what makes a house a home and some of the joys and sorrows of being in a family. We have begun to look at some of Paul's letters in the Bible to see what advice he gave to parents and children about how we can all love and respect our loved ones. We have also begun to look at the Holy family and the example they set as a loving, caring family. 

Thank you for all the support already this term, the children have all remembered to bring in their reading records, homework and PE kits when needed.

Have a lovely weekend!
