Week commencing Monday 19th February 2018

I cannot believe we have climbed all the way to the top of Year3 - halfway through the year...we made it and now we start our descent!

I hope you have all had a fantastic holidays and ready for Term 4.  We will be welcoming number 32 to our team at some point in the first couple of weeks.  Another boy to add to the mix, I am sure the class will make Adam feel very welcome as they have done for Elliot.

English will see our finalising our story endings for Krindlekrax.  The children have absolutely loved focussing their English on a book so we will be looking to do that again in Term 5.  We followed The Iron Man last time as our second novel, so watch this space as to which book we use next.  After our stories we move on to recounts which will be taught by Mr Mcrae.

Maths is still focussing on 'Time' for the first week at least as we move on to minute intervals and then learn how to calculate time differences etc which is always useful for bus, train and aeroplane timetables (although the children normally relate it to the length of a TV programme instead)

Science moves on to 'Animals including Humans'.  We will look at diet, muscles, skeletons (learning the names of important bones) and how we can stay healthy.

We leave Geography behind and move on to History - our topic is 'Crime and Punishment' from Anglo Saxon times to Tudor times.  It's always fun watching the children strip rope down into individual strands as hard labour!  It's the quietest I have ever have them!

Our Lent Services start at the church on Tuesday so we will be walking down each Tuesday morning for 9.15am so on Tuesdays more than ever, please ensure the children have coats and arrive at school on time.  Tuesday morning timetable will be slightly different for the duration of the services.

PE - we have a specialist skateboarder coming in at the beginning of March so we will enjoy a slightly different workshop for a refreshing change!

RE continues with Christianity, firstly focussing on why Christians follow rules and how they help them through life and making the right choices.

I look forward to seeing all the children back on Monday bright eyed and bushy tailed!
