Year 3

A big hello to the Year 3 blog.
 
Each week, we will be using this opportunity to let you know what we have been up to throughout the week.  We will also use it to remind you of important, upcoming events.
 
Many thanks,
 
Miss Whitney and Miss Quinn

Reminders
 
PE is every Wednesday. Can all children please ensure they have their kit so they are able to take part. 
 
Reading books and reading records should be in school every day to allow children to participate in daily guided reading sessions.While I understand that it is not possible for children to read every night, it is important that children are reading as much as possible independently and with a grown up who can sign their reading record.
 
It is very cold and slippy outside at the moment. All children should wear appropriate footwear and clothing to suit the weather.  
 
Any homework will be handed out on a Monday so that it can be collected in on a Friday.
 
We have had another wonderful week in school this week. As a class we are very excited about the new things we are learning each day about wild weather and natural disasters. It is fantastic to see such hardworking and enthusiastic children.
 
The Headteacher's award for this week has gone to Kacy for her hard work and perseverance all week. Well done Kacy!
 
Our core value for this week was 'responsible' and the class voted for Corey to win this award.
 
Last but not least, a very Happy Birthday to Calvin!

Happy New Year and welcome back everyone!
 
As the new Year 3 teacher I would just like to say a big hello and welcome to everyone. I hope the children are settling in well and look forward to seeing you at our class assembly on 31st January. In the meantime if you have any questions please feel free to see me at the end of the day.
 
This week we have introduced our new topic of weather around the world and natural disaster. The children have created a fantastic display where we have put their questions they would like to find answers to during this topic. 
 
We have started to transform our classroom into a 'Disaster Zone' to reflect our new topic including the introduction of our 'Reading Refuge' centre. 
 
The Headteacher's award for this week has gone to Ruby for her fantastic work in maths and helping her friends understand a tricky topic. Well done Ruby! 
 
Our core value for this week was 'unique' and the class voted for Thomas to win this award.
 
Finally a very big Happy Birthday to Noah!
 
Friday 3rd November
 
This week, the children have been reporting on the 'Fatfield Woods Wild Fire'.  They have let their imaginations run as wild as the fire with some fabulous newspaper reports (check them out on invitation afternoon).
 
We also had a visit from the RNLI lifeguards to tell us all about water safety-photos to follow.  
 
I was truly proud of all the children during our fruit tasting this week as they all tried everything.  Once they found everyone's favourites, we put together a recipe for Stone Age stewed fruit.  Hope it tastes good when we make it.
 
Please stay safe during your fireworks this weekend-I cannot wait to hear all about them!
 
Huge congratulation Joshua T for receiving this weeks Head Teacher's Award for his hard work in maths.
 
The winner of this week's class vote is Madison R.
 
We were third for attendance this week.  Let's see if we can improve this next week so we get extra playtime.
 
Friday 10th November
 
What a week we have had in Year 3! 
 
We have discovered the cave paintings in Altamira and thought we would have a go for ourselves.  What do you think?
We have decided to turn our cloakroom into Rocksylvania Cave, which is full of ancient cave paintings.  Don't forget to check it out at Invitation Afternoon (Thursday 7th December 2017).
 
Our maths area is turning into the Rocksylvania Gift Shop so you might pick up a cracking souvenir. 
 
Rob Lewis
 
We were lucky enough to spend an afternoon with the author and illustrator Rob Lewis.  He shared some of his stories with us and told us how he comes up with his illustrations.
We are looking forward to sharing some more of his stories over juice and biscuits this afternoon.
 
This week's super star.
 
Congratulations to:
 
Joseph W- for being resilient
 
Corey W-for being supportive
 
I wonder what excitement next week will bring as we are having Anti-Bullying Week.
 
Keep your eyes peeled to find out what we get up to.
 
 
17th November.
 
What a hectic week we had!  
 
We have been looking at anti-bullying this week.  We thought the best way to do this was by doing acts of kindness for each other so we don't have time to be  bullies.  We found that kindness acts like a ripple.  If someone is kind to you, you want to be kind to others.  Check out our whole school display when you come for invitation afternoon.
 
We had a great time dressing Topsy turvy for Pudsey and raising money for Children In Need.  We even had a special visitor.  Check out next week for photos.
 
 
 
Friday 24th November
 
As promised, here we are the photos with everyone's favourite bear, Pudsey.  We had a great time and raised a fantastic one hundred and eighty one pounds.  Well done everyone.
Rehearsal are under way for the Key Stage 2 Christmas production.  You should have received a letter about the revised dates and time but if you need any other information please just ask.
 
Congratulations
 
Our Headteachers Award winner this week is Kaine Marshall for his fabulous use of vocabulary in English.
 
Noah Dixon has been voted as the most considerate person by the class.
 
Hope you have a fabulous week,
 
Year 3
Friday 8th December.
 
 Well we have reached the end of another busy week in Year 3.
 
Congratulations to Madison Robinson for getting the Head Teacher's Award.
 
Corey Watson has made his classmates proud and was voted winner in the Core Value Award.
 
The children continue to work exceptionally hard.  I hope that was more than apparent when you came to see their work on Thursday.
 
We have all enjoyed spending the day in our jammies.  It was such fun spending time this afternoon sharing stories and having a cheeky cup of hot chocolate.
 
Not long until our fabulous KS2 production so work continues.  Thank you for your support in helping children learn lines, songs and getting costumes.
 
One last thing this week.
A massive well done to the whole class as our attendance was the best in the whole school.  I know we will enjoy our extra playtime.
