Year 3 Class 10 Newsletter 2nd July 2018

Dear Parents,

Well, here we go, our last month together as a class - where has the time gone?

Last week in RE we completed our assessment on St Paul and it was lovely to hear so many of the children retelling the story in such detail and thinking carefully about the questions we'd ask and the answers St Paul may give.  This week we will continue thinking about how we can be a good Christian.

During English the children learned the features of a persuasive letter and wrote some short paragraphs using some great persuasive sentence openers.  We planned what letter we would send to the crayons to try and persuade them to come home and this week we will be writing it.  There may be some more persuasive writing to come next week - stay tuned!

The children continued their learning about 3D shapes this week, built some models and understood what a net is and how it relates to shape.  Over the next few weeks we will learn about mass and capacity - the children always enjoy this topic.  Please continue to learn the 4 and 7 times tables (ask your child which one to learn) as it is a certificate week this week!

We completed our magnets work this week where the children enjoyed testing and playing with different size magnets.  Are some more magnetic than others?  We'll complete our work on forces and magnets this week with an assessment piece, before starting our light topic.

It was lovely to see some of our children at Town Sports on Wednesday night and would like to say thank you to you all for making sure they all turned up, fully fed and watered and raring to go.  The children loved the experience - here's to next year!

We learned some new skills during sports week.  The children enjoyed their Tae Kwon Do lesson and whilst they learned to punch they also learned about respect.  Crewe Alex came to visit (including Steve Jones, Ireland International) and taught the children some new skills - they really came away excited and enthused! 

Thank you for completing the spelling homework with the children, it really has made a difference to their writing.  Please keep it up all the way to the end of the term!  Spellings will come home on Monday and be tested on Friday's as usual. 

During computing we'll be starting to learn about spreadsheets and how to organise our data to help us understand results easier.  

Could you please have one last push with encouraging your child to write in their reading diaries each week?  It really helps me understand the types of books the children are enjoying.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask,

Kind regards,

Mr Chris Waterworth

My question is, Mr Waterworth, if it would be possible, and if you wouldn’t mind to continue teaching the same class next year, pretty please?! It’s 🐝 🐝 🐝n an absolutely inspirational year!

Thank you Ania, it's been a pleasure getting to know all these wonderful children this year and I'll always remember my first class at St Mary's and all the fun we've had together. Still a couple of weeks of adventure coming up though :)
