What a super week we have had in Year 3! We have had assemblies with the NSPCC and Road safety awareness. We know exactly what we have to do to keep safe.

We have been finding out about the British Isles in Geography. Ask your children if they know the capital cities of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We are now superstars with the 8 times table. We have been learning different tricks and rhymes to help us remember the tricky ones. Keep going on Times Tables Rockstars to get quicker and quicker.

In PE, we have been learning some new hockey skills. They are all making great progress, but it would be helpful if all the children had outdoor kit and brought gloves too - as we go out whatever the weather.

In Science today we investigated and observed how candles burn. We predicted which candle would have the largest flame. What did we find out?

Welcome to Spring 1 term in Year 3

Our topic for this half term is 'All around the World', we will be Geographers and we will be virtually travelling to Europe, North and South America and of course the UK to start. If you have any books linked to different places around the world, we would love to see them. The new homework project will be sent out during the first week in January - we apologise in advance.smiley

We are going to start reading 'The Firework Maker's daughter' by Philip Pullman. 

In Maths we are continuing with multiplication and division. Please encourage your child to spend as  much time as possible on times table rockstars. Five minutes a day would be brilliant.
