Year 3 have been retelling The Tempest. We thought about the main features of the story and described the characters to eachother. We then acted it out.
To finish off our Shakespeare week, we created island paintings using water colours.
Year 3 have really enjoyed learning about the Stone Age this half term. They celebrated the end of the topic with a fantastic Stone Age Workshop.
PE is on a Monday and Wednesday. Until further notice, PE kit will not be required. Instead, we would ask all children to wear trainers as suitable footwear ready for physical education activities. This is to ensure minimal belongings are moving between home and school.
Children should bring in a named water bottle which they have access to in the classroom.
Children have been given a new reading folder and diary; this should be in school on a daily basis as volunteers may hear children read at any time.
Children must read at least three times a week and you are expected to record in the reading record that you have heard them read – this is checked in school every Friday.
A home learning task is set every other Monday and children will be given 10 days to complete it. The task is on a printed sheet which is stuck in the children’s home learning books. Books must be returned to school on the given date for marking.
Maths homework is set every Friday and marked in class the following Friday.
Children have a spelling test every Friday, they will be given spellings in a yellow book which must come back to school the following Friday to allow them to be given their new spellings. Tests will take place in a red book which remains in school.
