Year 3 Class 11 Newsletter 19th November 201

Date: 18th Nov 2018 @ 6:21pm

Dear Parents,

We've had another very successful week in Class 11 and the children are so proud of their achievements.  I've seen a real maturity in their efforts this week.

During RE this week the children enjoyed learning about the story of Mary and Elizabeth.  The children wrote a recount of her journey to see her cousin and discussed what it must have felt like to hear so much fantastic news.  We also discussed how we feel when something amazing has happened to us.

The children wrote beautifully this week when asked to write a description of Om, the girl who Peter meets in the story.  We worked hard to improve our chose of adjectives to really bring the description alive.  This week we will start to think about writing our own flashback of the story.  By the end of the week we'll have a story all blocked out, ready to write.  

During Maths this week the children have been learning about the compact method of addition and subtraction.  They impressed me with their knowledge of the number system and it was fantastic to see them put into practise everything we've been learning recently.  We will keep pushing forward with this new way to calculate.

We looked at a timeline of events from 13 000BC all the way up to 43AD and discussed how much time this actually is!  The children will learn about each of the parts of this timeline all the way up to the end of the school year when we study the Romans.  This week we will look at how houses changed from The Stone Age, The Bronze Age and The Iron Age.

We completed our PIRA and PUMA assessments this week and the children enjoyed the tests!  They worked so hard and they should be so pleased with their efforts. 

Thank you for your help with spellings and times tables again this week.  The children are still enjoying the challenge that it brings each week.  We have two more weeks until our next certificate week; so keep working hard on those tables.  

The children enjoyed their PE lesson on Friday where we started to learn about gymnastics and how to behave in the gym.  We had help from a few children in the class who attend gymnastics classes outside school - they really impressed me and the class with some of their routines!  We will start to put together our own routines this week.

We learned lots during Anti-Bullying week this week and it was rounded off nicely with Class 10's assembly around the subject on Friday.  Mrs Davies also led an assembly on Wednesday about what to do if you feel like you've been bullied.  

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

Thank you for your contuinued support,

Mr Chris Waterworth
