As part of our effort to encourage learning outdoors your child will be taking part in Welly Wednesdays after half term. We will be spending part of the day doing our learning in the outdoor areas. This will take place weekly. Please ensure your child has the correct clothing – warm and waterproof coat and wellies in school every week. It would be great if your child also has access to waterproof trousers. Please make sure everything has your child's name inside. Your child has also been set homework for half term on google classrooms. You can access this through Hwb – sign in, scroll down and you will see Google for education – click this and use your hwb log in to get in. This is exactly like you did during lock down.
Have a wonderful half term and stay safe!

What a wonderful week we have had in Year 3.
Well done to Xavier and Mia for receiving this weeks head teachers awards - amazing job you two!
Also well done to Amelia for getting writer of the week with her amazing poem she wrote about our wonderful world.
We have been learning all about endangered animals and ordering numbers in maths. In literacy we have been writing different settings using powerful words.
Theo in 3J wrote an amazing poem all about a scary setting at a beach -
'I was sat on my towel relaxing after being in the freezing cold water. I look up at the eerie, dark, grey sky. The terrifying endless waves were crashing in to the strangely still rocks. There were children playing in the bottomless sea. Then I saw a dark shadow in the water. I screamed " Get out of the water!" the children ran unaware out of the darkening sea. The shadow was looming in the water"
Well done Theo and everyone else for all of your hard work this week!
Have a lovely weeked from Ms Jenkins and Mrs Gale :)
Hopefully a printed version will be handed out on Monday.

Wednesday 23rd September
Literacy - writing using powerful words
We have been writing sentences to describe different settings. Today we have been looking at describing the setting at a beach where the weather is gloomy and there is even a shark in the sea! Have a read of our descriptions -
At that instant I could hear children's shrieks of horror because of the terrifying, immense, dark, threatening shadow with a thin, point fin lurking in the bottle green ocean. The sky was miserable. Time wore on, the shark was about to charge in and scare the poor frightened children.
by Iestyn H
As time wore on I could see a threatening shark in the murky bottle green ocean about to charge at the unaware children. Then a dark shadow came over the prickling heat of the sun.
These are amazing! Everyone wrote fantastic sentences it was so hard to choose. Have a chat with your child about the powerful words they have been writing about in class.
Welcome back Year 3!
It has been great to have everyone back in school the last few weeks. It has been a strange few months but we are finally getting back to the 'new normal' and it is great to see everyone returning with a great attitude to learning and happy to see their friends.
Our first topic this year is What a wonderful world. We will be taking the opportunity to take a look at all of the wonderful things about our world after all the negativity of recent months. The children are already enjoying this and have told us lots of things they would like to learn about as part of their pupil voice including dinosaurs, plants and wildlife and much more. We are looking forward to exploring this further in the coming weeks.
We have made a great start with our maths and literacy work, please encourage your child to read every evening and return books on a Friday for us to change them. Children also have access to Oxford Reading Buddy where they can read a huge range of books and take part in quizzes.
