Return to Children

Year 3


Weekly update
In science, we finished up learning about plants however we will continue to water and observe our science investigation to understand what plants need to survive.  We quickly started our next science topic on Rocks – igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks.  The children carried out an investigation to categorise rocks into – permeable / non permeable, soft / hard and low density / high density.  
In maths we have been adding and subtracting money.  We were really impressed with how well they did and how well they remembered these concepts.  They also applied their mathematical knowledge to add and subtract money in real live situations by answering questions.
After finishing our grammar work, we started to plan and write our letters to the chairs begging for their forgiveness and pleading for them to come back to work.  
The children have not yet touched the violins however they can name parts of the Violin and are learning how to hold and control the bow.  



Friendship Box

The children in each class have the opportunity to write acts of kindness on a piece of paper and place it in the class ‘Friendship Box’.  During Friday assembly the teacher draws one out and reads it out to the whole school via our Teams Assembly.
