Welcome to Parrots Year 3

 

Autumn Term 2

 

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.

Mrs. Hannaford

As part of our Fabulous Friday, some of us investigated the strength of different bridge designs. Did you know that the Romans were fabulous architects? Maybe we will be amazing architects too one day.

Here are a few other photos from our Fabulous Fridays. Have you ever played a Roman Gladiator board game? Or maybe designed a poster to promote safe scooter skills?

Stop, Drop and Read! The children have made their own bookmarks for our own class Book Club. They love their selection and chose the authors and books they wanted in our class library. Wiltshire Library Resources had everything they wanted!

Our Fab Friday theme is camouflage. One of our activities was to "hide" our hand within an art composition. Here are some of our optical illusions.

We had fun in our Fab Friday session. Some of us read and performed short play scripts, some of us chose to create a new world using junk modelling, a few of us chose to read and follow instructions to draw a forest scene and one person chose to practise their geographical skills and draw their own sketch map.

We have used natural materials and PVA glue to create interesting art compositions. The inspiration for our pictures has come from two wonderful books: Into the Forest and The Tin Forest.

Spellings Update

 

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.

 

Mrs Hannaford

 

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!
