smileyWelcome to Year 3smiley

We are nearly there, only a few more weeks to go until we finish for the summer holidays. We have lots of exciting things coming up before we finish, keep an eye on Marvellous Me for any event updates.

PE will still be on a Wednesday and we have Widnes Vikings on a Thursday.

Please send PE kits in on a Monday, so we have them available all week if any extra PE opportunities arise.

Our Topic has recently changed. We have finished learning about the Stone Age through to the Iron Age and Extreme Earth topic. We are now looking at Leisure and Entertainment - Past and present. The children will be encouraged to share stories of things that they do in their spare time and any exciting things they have been doing. We are now half way through our Topic of Leisure and Entertainment. Year 3 have been doing lots of comparisons. We looked at film posters from the 1930s and film posters that we see now. We then moved on to compare one of our favourite things to do in our spare time...FOOTBALL! We looked at what the players wore, the stadiums and even their tactics. We still have lots more to learn about this topic and are all very intrigued.

We have been extremely busy in Science. We have already looked at Forces and Magnets, Rocks and Plants. We are now moving on and we will be learning about Light. Our trip to Manchester Museum of Science and Industry (7th March) was thoroughly enjoyed by all children. It really supported the children with this challenging topic. They came back to school and have used all the things that they learnt on the visit in their classwork. Scroll down to our gallery to have a look at some of the pictures from our day out!

Homework will continue to be sent home on a Friday. Please return it by Thursday of the following week so a new piece can be ready for your son/daughter to complete. Throughout the week please continue to read with your child and fill in their yellow reading record book. Children are also encouraged to be learning their 3, 4 and 8 timestables.
