Year 3 Weekly Update


17/11/2017:  This week the children have written an adventure story about the Stone Age, after our school trip next Friday the children will be writing a fact file about the Stone Age.  We have been solving word problems by adding and subtracting using the column method and next week the children will be solving missing number problems in relation to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  We are hoping the beans we planted will grow soon!

Friday 24th November- year 3 trip to the museum of Kent life for a Stone Age day.
All children need to wear their school uniform and bring a pack lunch, no fizzy drinks please.  Children can wear boots or trainers as it may be muddy and cold.

10/11/2017:  How fantastic it was to receive all the Stone Age Homework this week.  We were very impressed by everyone’s hard work.  A few photos will follow onto the website next week.  The children have been busy planning their adventure stories about the Stone Age and we have been adding and subtracting using the column method.  We have also started our new science topic of plants. Some children have had difficulty accessing their online maths abacus homework.  The passwords have been checked today, they are now their first names and the first letter of their surname followed by Year3.  The Y must be upper case.  Hopefully you will now be able to log on for them to complete their games.

20/10/2017:  It’s hard to believe the first half term is over already!  I would like to thank everyone that attended parent consultations and our express event last Monday, it was a huge success.  Next term we will be starting a new topic called tribal tales which is a History based topic and will include learning about the stone, iron and bronze ages.  We will be continuing to go swimming each Wednesday and homework will be given out each Monday and needs to be returned by that Friday.

13/10/2017:  All parents should have now received their appointment times for the parent consultations next week.  If not please see your child’s teacher.  Next Monday the 16th October all parents are welcome to come to a small show case of this terms work on out topic, heroes and villains  at two thirty in the junior hall. Next week we will be writing riddles and continuing with the column method in maths for addition and subtraction.

06/10/2017:  Our first year 3 mass of the year was very successful, thank you to all those parents that attended.

This week we have been writing a dialogue between a hero and a vi​llian.  In maths we have been rounding to the nearest 10 and starting to learn column addition and subtraction which we will continue with next week.  The children enjoyed their first recorder lesson which was very noisy!  In science we have been continuing with our topic about light and investigating which materials would be good to make curtains.

If any parents are available to help on our school trip on Friday 24th November to the Museum of Kent life for our stone age day please let your child’s teacher know.

This year will be very exciting with the children going swimming and having the opportunity to make their first Holy Communion.

Next Wednesday 22nd September at 5pm will be the year 3 parents talk where lots of important information will be given out.  After the meeting the information will then be available on this page on the website.

Thank you Year 3 teachers

3b – Miss Button

22/09/2017:  Thank you to all those parents who attended the year three parent talk, the feedback we received was very positive.  It was also lovely to see so many parents at the whole school mass.  Soon it will be the year three mass on  Thursday at the small church opposite our school called St Mary’s, parents are welcome to attend all masses.  This week we have been learning to add ten and one hundred to a given number.  We are also learning to write numbers in words.  Next week we will be moving onto addition and subtraction.  In science we are learning how to keep safe in the sun by wearing sun glasses and hats.  The children enjoyed writing a biography about Cruella de vil, our next writing topic is dialogue.  The children will be writing a conversation between a hero and a villain!
