Dear Parents,

 

This week the children have worked very hard when practising for the upcoming Year 3 Show!  They are excited to present the show to you and have been developing great acting and speaking skills.  The children have enjoyed practising singing the songs for our show and well done to everybody that is learning their lines and songs at home – Keep it up!

 

In Literacy, the children are writing their own scripts for a well -known short story and have incorporated the features of script writing into their own work.

 

In Maths, the children have learnt about finding the perimeter of compound shapes.  They are beginning to work on position and direction where the focus is on ‘turns and right-angles.’

 

In Topic, the children are enjoying developing their map skills.  They have been reading and writing grid references as well as recognising map symbols.

 

In Science, the children are beginning to investigate the terms ‘transparent,’ ‘translucent,’ and ‘opaque.’

 

In Art, the children have continued to use the illustrator ‘Quentin Blake’ as their stimulus for sketching.

 

Have an enjoyable weekend.
