Dear Parents,

We have had a lovely week in Year 3, working hard and finding out how to write instructions and had a celebration assembly to acknowledge all the efforts and achievements the children have achieved in Term 2B. Today we gathered as a community to show our deepest respects and admiration on the auspicious occasion of the Coronation of King Vajiralongkorn.

In Literacy, we have learnt the features of instruction texts, including imperative (bossy) verbs and how to use them. We hope they don’t get used too much at home!

In Maths, we have begun our unit on Multiplication and Division. The children have been busy practising their 3, 4 and 8 times tables as well as finding different ways to represent these problems.

In Topic, the children have developed their understanding of chronology and been able to order inventions onto a timeline. They have also begun researching different inventions and the impact they have had on life.

In Science, we completed our investigation of how plants transport water. We focused on the evaluation aspect of an experiment and the children were able to identify what went well and what could be improved.

In Art, Year 3 have continued looking at the work of Leonardo Da Vinci and began using different sketching techniques, with a focus on tone to recreate his works.

Dates to be aware of:

Monday 6th May – School Closed
Friday 10th May – Non Uniform Day
Friday 31st May – Speech Day and Invention Arcade (More details to follow)

We hope you have a relaxing weekend.

The Year 3 Team
