This half term we will be looking at poetry in English and non-chronological reports and Maths we are looking at Statistics and measurement (length and perimeter) and fractions.
Please don’t forgot to log on to Times table rockstars.
Update Friday 5th April
Thank you for all the children completing their fraction homework, it really helped them access the fraction work in Maths this week. We have been been learning to count forwards and backwards in tenths. The children can also explain what happens when you get to ten tenths, so do ask them.
They have also been working hard in English to improve their writing and have produced some non-chronological reports.
If you were unable to make parents evening please contact the school office and we can arrange another time to meet.
Update: Friday 22nd March 2019
We have had a busy few weeks in Year 3. We are promoting a healthy lifestyle and the children have enjoyed a jump rope session.
The children have also created amazing performance poetry in English, please ask to hear them.
In Maths we have been developing our thinking skills by solving problems involving length. We have also been practising our times tables. Please practise these at home with the children.
The current year 3 children will be taking part in a nationwide multiplication check in Summer 2020, when they are in year 4. They will need to know their tables up to 12×12 , so we will be practising them daily.
This week we had a workshop on Laudato Si’. The children thought carefully about Pope Francis and the letter he has written, addressed to every person on the planet, asking us all to protect the earth. We thought about what we can do at home and school to care for our planet.
Thank you for all the wonderful World Book Day costumes. The children looked amazing! We had an exciting morning exploring or favourite books and we also explored the text ‘Room on the Broom’ and compared the the recipe the witch created to the witches recipe from William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Curriculum information for Spring 1: MTP Spring 1 KS2 Attack of the Robots Final
The children have been working really hard this week, especially in maths as they have been doing tricky division. In English we’ve been innovating our own stories and they have thought of some very interesting characters. We can’t wait to read their finished stories. We also started painting our inventions which was very exciting. You’ll get to see them very soon when they come home.
Next week, Miss Moriani’s Times Table Challenge begins again so look out for the packs coming home on Monday. We are also looking forward to seeing your homework projects on Friday. A letter has gone home today but you can also check our Curriculum Newsletter on the website.
We have made a great start to the Spring Term. Our PE day is Friday. We are currently changing to a new way of practicing our spellings and will soon be sending home some information about this.
Well done to all of the children for participating in Miss Moriani’s Times Table Challenge! We will be starting a new challenge in the Spring Term, and have sent home the children’s packs so they can continue to practice if they would like to. Our new maths homework will be online until then and the children will have their My Maths log-ins sent home next week. Keep going with the Times Tables Rock Stars! If you do not have a Times Tables Rock Stars log-in, please come and speak to me and I will help sort one out for you.
Following on from our wonderful Mass a few weeks ago, we have been busy preparing for Christmas during this Advent season. The children are enjoying adding a new story to our Jesse Tree each day and opening our class Advent Calendar.
Roman Trip to Alcester Heritage Centre
As part of our Roman Topic this term, the children visited the Heritage Centre where they enhanced their knowledge of Roman culture and Roman lifestyles. The children even got to dress up as Roman soldiers! Thank you to everyone at the centre for making our trip so successful.
Children in St Martin’s ran a most successful café for all children in the school, on Children in Need Day Friday 16th November. They served drinks to ‘customers’ and a range of homemade cakes. Well done, St Martin de Porres’ class; you did a great job and had lots of fun raising money for a really worthwhile cause!
We have made a brilliant start to this school year. The children have settled in superbly and we have really enjoyed getting to know our new class.
