Welcome to Parrots Year 3
Spring term continued...
For the next few weeks we will continuing with The Secret Lake in Guided Reading and we will be looking at Explanation texts using The River Story by Meredith Hooper. We will use the Talk for Writing technique to learn this beautiful text which serves as a wonderful explanation of the journey of a river. We will make our own adjustments using synonyms and look at securing our Year 3 sentence structures.
Welcome back. I hope you all had an enjoyable time with your families. I look forward to seeing you all.
First day back: We have had a wonderful day, the sun is shining and the children have been marvellous. The spellings, curriculum letter and homework has all been sent home with the children. You can also find the curriculum letter and homework grid saved under the tabs above.
Rhodedendron bushes feature a lot in the setting of our story so today the children began making their own for the classroom. We watched a very detailed demonstration online and then followed them carefully to make our own. The children did an amazing job. Have a look at the photos below.
Welcome back to our second half term leading up to Christmas. I look forward to the term ahead filled with Rotten Romans, a visit from a Roman warrior, getting ourselves fully immersed in a wonderful tale of more Rotten Characters: 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl. Also, we will be creating our own explosive volcanoes, Roman mosaics, more Swimming and the build-up to a magical Staverton Christmas. More details to follow in our Curriculum letter! Spellings and homework will be sent home by the end of the week.
Thanks for your continued support.
Congratulations to all the children who did well on their first spelling test this week. It was clear who had practised regularly as they were the ones that had the evidence of practise in their Spelling books. These children were also the ones that did well! This demonstrates the importance of practise at home. Let's see if we can get a full house of children practising in their spelling books and then all being successful on Friday. I appreciate this may be a new routine and can understand there may be an adjustment period!
Please remember their spelling books MUST be in their bags to do their tests in on Friday and for us to check their books for practise. Any concerns with this please let me know.
Well done to Parrots and their wonderful parents! Your support is needed, appreciated and beneficial.
Welcome to Year 3! I hope you all had an enjoyable Summer and the children are well rested ready for the term ahead. Thank you to those who attended the 'Meet the Teacher' meetings. If you were unable to attend, the PowerPoint Presentation is available under the Letters tab at the top of the page.
Our Topic this term is 'Once upon a time' which is the overarching theme across the school. We are focussing on the text 'Into the Forest' by Anthony Browne throughout English. It is a fantastic story that has hooked the children in already! More information can be found in the Curriculum Letter above.
The children have already settled in very well. Counting in 50's and 100's in Maths and already immersing ourselves in Music, Art and Science - all linked to our focus text.
Please see some pictures below from their first successful week in KS2 including Hockey!
