w/e 17th January 2019: 

Despite the stormy weather, we have had a fantastic week. On Monday we enjoyed making smores in Forest School. In Science we have been experimenting with magnets and in Art we have been developing our drawing skills by learning how to draw using perspective. 

Next week - Term 3, Week 3:

In Maths next week, we will be continuing with our work on division, particularly looking at division with remainders and then moving onto scaling problems. Key vocabulary includes: division, divide, share, partition, equal groups, hundreds, tens, ones, remainder, repeated subtraction, scaling, times as many, bar model.

In English next week, we will be starting a new non-fiction unit based around newspaper reports. Some of the aspects of writing we will be focusing on in this unit are punctuating speech, using fronted adverbials and writing catchy headlines using puns and alliteration.

We are continuing with recorders every Monday so if you do have one please do bring it in. 

Homework:

Continue to practise your spellings in your homework book. Please remember to read at least 3 times per week and record it in your reading record.
We would also like to remind you that you should be aiming to spend 20 minutes a week practising your Maths skills using Doodle Maths and Doodle Tables. If anyone is still having difficulties with their login please let us know.

Remember to bring in your PE kits on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Have a great weekend, 

The Year 3 team
