Welcome and Parent Info

Good morning,

Welcome to Year 3. We are very excited to meet you all on Thursday.

We would normally have a parent meeting on the first day back to school however due to the current climate we are not able to welcome you into the classrooms at the moment. However, please find attached the power point we would have shared with you on that evening which explains some of the work we will be doing in year 3. It also includes important days such as PE and homework expectations.

As always any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with me via Dojo’s and i will be more than happy to help.

Parents open evening September 2020

Year 3 Year Assembly

We performed our number day assembly to our parents and careers. We have been learning our lines, practising our parts and remembering where to move to and when to sing. Our assembly was based on Number Day which is a campaign by the NSPCC to help children everywhere. Because of this we learnt number songs using our times table facts and even challenged the audience with a problem solving activity. Some of us had to overcome our fears to push ourselves to say our lines when the room was full of adults. We all did really well, and the donations from the tea and coffee went to the NSPCC.

Firemen Visit Year 3

Today we invited the local firefighters into school to discuss fire safety with year 3. We looked at different situations around the home and what can cause a fire risk to us. We were able to identify the different risks and discuss what we can do to eliminate that risk. After we thought about what we do in the event of a fire in our home. We talked about the importance of having a working smoke alarm that will alert us to smoke in the home and having a family escape plan so we can evacuate the house safely and wait the for fire brigade to come and help us. Finally we talked about the different emergency services that we have and what each service can help us with.

Anti-Bullying in Year 3

Anti Bullying Week

We have been talking about anti bulling in class this week. After looking at the different forms that bullying takes physical, emotional and social/cyber. We have looked at different scenarios and then acted this out. Finally we thought about how we could offer support to someone in these situations. We stated that is was always best to tell an adult that you trust to help you deal with the problem.

French Horn Lesson

Today we have had a great french horn lesson. We have been practcing the notes E and F and been playing some songs that include these notes. We talked about musical terms and how the origin of a lot of musical terminology is Italian.

Homework Reminder

This is a reminder about when homework is set and due-in in Year 4.

We give maths and spellings homework out on a Friday which is due in the following Thursday. This gives all children a week and weekend to complete it and time to ask an adult in school if any problems are encountered.

We also expect children to read at home during the week and have their reading diary signed.

If homework (including a reading signature) has not been handed in on the Thursday the children will do this on Friday break time.

Thank you

Mrs Whiteley and Mrs Shedden
