Homework 14.12.20

Hello! Here is our final Autumn term Spelling list and a homework sheet on Fronted Adverbials.

Over half term, we sent the children home with a Maths booklet too and some parents have said that they found this useful for the holidays. Normal homework will be sent out on Monday, but if you would like to do some extra Maths over the holidays you could download the booklet below which focuses on Multiplication and division. It will also be sent home as a paper pack on Thursday or Friday this week.  As we mentioned last time, please remember that the children did miss a whole term of school last academic year, so please don't worry if your children need support to complete the Maths tasks. 
Happy holidays everybody!! :)

Homework 7.12.20

Hello everybody! Here is this week's Year 3 Spellings and homework. The Maths homework this week is about converting units of measurement. There are 3 difficulty levels. Please remember that we advise children to spend approximately 30 minutes on their homework. They do not need to do all 3 sheets!

Roman Day 

Roman Day 2.12.20

We had a fantastic Roman Day. Thank you so much for sending the children in wearing super costumes and with some brilliant shields and swords.

The children have worked so hard learning many interesting facts throughout the topic. It would have been nice to invite all the parents in to share some of these facts along with some songs and to show some of the art and technology we have been working on.

With the current situation we hope this short video of Roman day gives you a snippet of our work.


Homework 30.11.20 

Year 3 have been doing a fantastic job of bringing in their homework every week and getting lots of House Points! Thank you for support with our new Home Learning policy. Please do also remind your children to practise their spellings too as these are tested every Monday. 

From now on we will be posting Year 3 homework and spellings on this blog each week. This should help if children are absent on Mondays when the homework is given out, or maybe forget to bring their sheets home! 

Some of our pupils have personalised homework which will not be posted on this page, but do ask your class teacher if you need an extra paper copy.

My name is Miss Morse and I am currently completing my teacher training year at Wadebridge Primary Academy. I’m a huge lover of animals, the great outdoors and exercise! Over the last 6 weeks I have been in Class 3B, where I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all the brilliant pupils. I have been overwhelmed by just how lovely all the pupils in Year 3 are and how wonderful they have made the start of my teacher training year. I’m very excited to be able to start teaching 3B more and more as the Autumn Term progresses!

All the best, 
Miss Morse :) 


Spear or Supermarket? 

We are fast approaching the end of our first half term and we have been so proud and please with how the children have continued to thrive.   

We enjoyed reading the book - 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' and used it as inspiration to write our own instructions so, should you ever want to wash your own prehistoric Woolly Cave Bear, you will be able to ask your children who are now experts in the art!
Last week, we started our next piece of writing based on the short animation, 'The Girl and the Fox'.  The children have learnt how to use prepositions and adverbs to enhance their writing and we have been very pleased with the results.  Their stories will capture the reader's imagination with the atmosphere that they have tried to create.
Over the past three weeks, the children have been learning how to add and subtract; first, using effective mental strategies and then using written methods.  We know that parents and carers are always keen to help their children with their maths.  A few simple but essential skills that will benefit your child's learning is to know the pairs of numbers that make ten and to learn doubles and halves by heart. Of course, rapid recall of times tables is also essential to enable the children to work quickly.
The children have really embraced our history topic about the Stone Age through to the Iron Age and have produced some fantastic work.  They have used pastels and charcoal to create some very authentic looking cave paintings to show the prehistoric animals that were hunted by Pre-historic people.  They have used a range of resources to learn about life on a Celtic hillfort and written a diary entry to show what the day in the life of an Iron Age child might have been like.   

We hope that you and your family can enjoy the half term break soon and we look forward to welcoming your children back after half term when we will start our new and very interesting topic on the Romans.


Fantastic Homework 

We have been really pleased with the effort that many of the children in Year 3 have been putting in with the homework tasks.

Here are some photos of some of the wonderful baking and artwork the children have been up to.

Well what a fantastic start to the year the children in Year 3 have had. We are so proud of how well the children have settled into their new routine. They have begun learning all about the Stone Age and have asked lots of questions that they would like to find the answers to.

You have been emailed our updated Home Learning Policy, and in line with this, your child will be coming home with some Maths work to do this week and some Spellings to practice. Teachers will give out homework every Monday and we ask that the children bring their work back to school on Mondays also. They do not need to bring their spelling list back to school, just the Maths or English worksheet (depending on which was set that week). If you have any difficulties or if you would like to discuss the work set, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher. We would like to say thank you for encouraging your children to read at home too. We have already given out lots of Golden Tickets to children who have had their reading records signed at home. Please can you help to remind your children to ensure that their reading books and reading records are brought to school every day so that we can ensure that children are changing their books regularly and we can look at their reading records too. Many thanks for your continued support with this.

We are looking forward to another great week! 



Spear or Supermarket?

For the first half term, the children will be learning about the Stone Age and Iron Age. If your child decides to do any additional research or creative activities at home based on this Topic, we would love you to share it with us! Either send it to school with your child or email it to us. With your permission, we would love to post photos on this blog too. Watch this space....!
