wb11.09.2017 – Year 3b!


A brilliant second week in Year 3 has seen us delve deeper into our focus text ‘Ug – Boy Genius of the Stone Age’ where we have written our own character descriptions about Ug, as well as looking at Ug’s daily life and comparing it with our own.

We have worked really hard in Maths this week, learning about place value before using this knowledge to help us add 2 and 3 digit numbers. Some of us even challenged ourselves with 4 digit – amazing!

In topic we have started looking at the geographical features of the UK and Europe during the Stone Age on a map and have begun learning about their daily life including clothing, homes, food and environment.

Learning Hero of the week!

Lottie – For great collaboration during lessons and showing great resilience while challenging herself in Maths.

Championship Winners!

Nicole and Max made it to the very top of our board this week! Well done you two!

Swimming and PE!

Just a reminder that we have PE on a Tuesday morning with our Activate coach, then again on a Friday morning with Mr Smith. It is really important that the children have their full PE kits on both these days.

Swimming is every Monday afternoon and the children must bring a full swimming kit, including swimming costume, swimming trunks and a towel. Girls are also required to wear a swimming cap which can be purchased from the swimming pool at a cost of £4. It is also important that girls take our ear rings before they come to school on a Monday – this saves time when we get to the pool.


We hand homework out every Friday for the children to complete over the weekend. This week the children have spellings and times tables homework. Homework is due in on Mondays and children who bring it in on this day will receive two Championship Points! The children who complete the extra challenge provided in their homework books will also achieve five more Championship Points! A total of SEVEN up for grabs all on Monday morning!

I am really enjoying time with my new class and look forward to another hard working week!

Miss Andrew 🙂
