In DT we have been creating shadow puppets. Today we performed at the 'theatre'
We had a lovely walk in the sunshine to get some fresh air and take some pictures for our pen pals in London
Shadows - HG - We had great fun learning about shadows
In Science this half term, we are learning about light. We have taken advantage of the sunny weather and looked at how shadows can be created and sun safety. We hope you enjoyed the art work in the play ground at the end of school.
3RT- Taking part in a perimeter hunt putting our new maths skills to the test 16.03.2021.
This week we have been recapping some of the skills the children had begun to explore at home. We have reminded ourselves how to use a ruler and measure accurately. Using these skills, the children have been working out the perimeter of different 2D shapes.

We hope you all had a lovely half term break.
Please see below the home learning for this coming week. If you have and questions then please don't hesitate to email Miss Griffiths at firstname.lastname@example.org as Miss Thwaites will be in school this week.

Some Pictures we have received from the DT project and some book reviews
As you have heard from Mrs Wade many of the children will be accessing home learning materials for the immediate future.
Our Topic this half term is ‘metals and magnets’. Please see below the icons pointing you in the right direction of each learning activities and links for this week.
Please encourage your child to continue to read daily, practice their spellings, times tables (TT Rockstars) and handwriting.
In Maths the children will continue to work on multiplication and division. This was our focus before Christmas so it will be a great way to consolidate and build upon their existing knowledge.
Our Guided Reading text which we will be working from is ‘The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes
Please do stay in touch and email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org with copies of your child’s work or if you have any questions. We are both working together in school so please copy us both into your emails and one of us will respond as soon as we can.
Thank you for your continued support.

Home Learning HG Year 3 - 20th - 23rd October
Design and Technology - The children have created masks for children who live near a Volcano to protect them from the ash. This is linked to our topic on Volcanoes .
Friday 4th December - We had a Roman Art Day
Home learning will take place for the next three days. I have explained what I am expecting the children to do over this period. All children that attended school on Monday were given a 'pack' to take home with some resources in. For some of the activities you will need to view resources on the screen. I have attached information on the icons below.
For each day, I have attached a time table to follow below . I have set work that we would be completing in class, with the expectation that it will be completed in your books we sent home the week before last.
Mini maths you will be able to mark yourself and the rest I will mark when we are back in school. This is not an ideal situation however, I know you will work hard over the next three days and we will be back to school on Friday before you know it!
If your child was not in school please do get in touch with me today and we will try and arrange you to get a 'pack' from school at social distancing or some other way.
Please do get in touch with me via my email address if you have any questions or need help on anything.
Many thanks and do take care.
See you Friday!
Don't forget you have your Times Tables Rock Stars logins to practise your Times Tables.
If you have misplaced your login details, send me an email and I will send them to you right away!
