Dear Parents,

What an action-packed penultimate week we have had in Year 3!

The children have absolutely loved reading Varjak Paw. The exciting, adventurous plot has had us all hooked from start to finish. This week we have explored the events and ensured we all have a sound knowledge of the storyline. We made predictions about what might happen next before we read the ending. Next, we are going to be writing the story from another character’s perspective. Be sure to ask your children about this amazing text!

In Maths, we have revised our bus stop division method and our knowledge on area and perimeter. Some of us have revised our time skills and completed time activities linked to our Ancient City topic and The World Cup.

In Topic, we have applied previously learnt mapping skills to make a map of the school.

In Computing, we have continued to investigate email. We have learnt how to reply to emails. Some of us have also furthered our understanding of E-safety, with lessons on our ‘Online Communities’.

In Science, we have continued to learn about magnets. We looked at a prediction and decided how we could test to see if it was true or false. We then investigated and wrote conclusions from the data.

In Art, we continued work on our Thai salas. The children have loved completing their Modroc structures and starting to decorate them. They look forward to sharing them with you next week.

Over the course of the week, the Year 2 children have been visiting us here in Year 3. They have taken part in different activities and discussions to help prepare them for next year when they join our Prep School. Today, the classes joined for a day of lessons together. Well done Year 3 for being so friendly and helpful. We hope you have built some friendships that you can continue to enjoy next year when you are in Year 4.

Have a great weekend,

Year 3 Team
