READING AT HOME


 Please read to a grown up every day and ask them to sign your book. Talk about what you like and dislike about the books you read, what your opinions are about the characters and events and make predictions about what you think will happen next. 

Remember to put a token on your reading chart each morning to show that you have read at home. 

If you read 35 times this half term you will be in with a chance of winning some Saves!

 

 

Let's see if we can win the reading trophy this week!

Being a Christian

 

 

During the second half term children will be thinking about 'Being a Christian'. Children will have some understanding of what being a Christian involved and that being a follower of Jesus involves challenges and joys. We will explore the life of St. Peter and how St. Paul had to learn to be a Christian.

 Quantum Theatre- The Half Pint Kid

March 2019

 

Year 3 enjoyed a theatre production of 'The Half Pint Kid' who had find the missing money when it had been stolen from the bank! Children helped to find the clues and solve mathematical problems in order to get the money back!

We looked at the column method for simple addition, subtraction and multiplication. We added and subtracted fractions with the same denominator and recalled facts for our 3, 6 and 8 times tables!

Science

(Spring 2)

 

We have been learning about push and pull forces in our science lessons. We have been investigating friction and finding out what happens when we change the surface of the ramp. 

 

To make it a fair test we:

  • Kept the ramp at the same height
  • used the same car throughout the investigation
  • kept the landing surface the same
  • used the same person to release the car
  • measured the distance from the front of the car each time
  • measured using the same equipment each time. 

 

We CHANGED the material on the ramp.

Forgiveness Prayer Trail

(Spring 1)

 

We planned and carried out our own prayer trails using the theme of forgiveness. We used all of our knowledge from what we had learnt over the half term to help us to create a prayer and action for other children to think about. 

Miss Burke was really impressed with how independent we were and how we all worked effectively as part of a group.
