End of term report.

Again we have had another excellent term in Year 3. From English to computing we have had lots of fun. Our term value has been Tolerance and our Topic is ‘Temples, Tombs and Treasures of Egypt. They are the reasons why our term has been one of the best.

In our English we have had a lot of topics. These have included; persuasive writing, instructions and diary writing. Firstly, persuasive. We were split in to two groups: Pro-chocolate and against chocolate. We had to write a letter to Mrs Peel saying why, or why not chocolate should be allowed in school. Then we did instructions on how to trap or keep our choice of a mythical creature. Now we are finishing off our diary writing of Bills new frock.

In maths we have been doing fractions, especially tenths and decimals. The children who like harder challenges, like us, have had different challenges, finding tenths of different perimeters. We have also been converting measurements.

In guided reading we have been reading Bills new frock, answering questions about it and finding the meaning of words in each page.

We have been doing mask making and hieroglyphics in topic as well as lots of other subjects.

And that’s why this term has been extraordinary!

By year 3 class reps.

All the children had a wonderful time and demonstrated superb sportmans like behaviour at our friendly hockey tournament.

Mrs Burrows and I would like to say a big thank you for all of the presents that we very gratefully received at Christmas.  We appreciated it, thank you.  
On Monday Year 3 will be starting our new reading scheme, 'Read around the Solar System'.  All the children will have a coloured card stapled in to their reading records that can only be signed by an adult.  The card can only be signed once a day and only if the children have read to an adult.  On completion of each card the child will receive 5 house points and move on to the 'next planet'.  If they can complete the whole 'solar system' they will be rewarded with additional 20 house points, so happy reading!

On Nation Braille day Year 3 learnt all about the braille alphabet and practised writing using a braille type writer. It was certainly challenging remembering how to use the special numbered keys.

Happy New Year and Welcome back to the Spring Term.
