Year 3 Class 10 Newsletter 16th April 2018

Date: 14th Apr 2018 @ 1:04pm

Dear Parents,

I hope you've had a peaceful Easter and the children are all ready for more exciting learning adventures this term.  I'm looking forward to being outside more with the children and spending time learning about the world.

This week we will start our learning by looking at Dick King Smith and his book HodgeHeg.  The children will have the opportunities to develop their sentence writing skills whilst learning new writing techniques when describing scenes within stories.  If you have the book at home, please make sure you share it with your children - it will be a great way for them to learn the story with you.

During maths we will continue our fractions work whilst some children continue to develop their calculations skills.  We will solve problems involving fractions and I'll be asking the children to explain their thinking in much more detail.

During RE we will begin looking at the celebration of Easter and why new life is so important to us.  I will also be asking the children to discuss their experiences of Easter.

We start swimming on Wednesday, so I will need the children to have their swimming kits with them on Wednesday.  If your child needs to wear goggles, please send in written permission to do so.  I will be expecting that the children will be impeccibly well behaved during these sessions.  

Please make sure the children have their normal PE kit in school too, as we may have the opportunities to go outdoors to carry on our athletics training. 

We have our Alice in Wonderland play on Friday afternoon - what a real treat for the first week back!  

Mrs Cotterill will be coming into school again this term to complete our art project work.  The children have loved working with her and learning new techniques with acrylic paint, charcoal and inks.  

Homework will continue to come home on Friday's and is due in on the following Wednesday.  Spellings will come home on Monday's to be tested on Friday's also.  Please, please, please ensure that you are reading with your children and reminding them to write in their purple books - it makes such a difference to the children's progress when they are read with more often.

Keep an eye on the website for more information and please try to read our newsletter each week to keep up to date with what is happening in Class 10.  

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Chris Waterworth
