The theme this half term is 'Winter.' Year 3 are reading a great book called 'The Ice Palace,' by Robert Swindells. We're also planning a wintery trip... watch this space...
Things you could do to help your children this half term: practise telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes (analogue clock) and measure lines to the nearest cm using a ruler.
International Week - what is climate change?
During International Week, Year 3 learnt about the climate. Did you know there are over 6.4 billion empty plastic bottles thrown into the sea every year? Recycling them is better, but the children learnt that this process still causes harm to the planet by contributing to Global Warming. A better solution is to reuse... The children in 3LK made 'floating islands,' based on the real-life 'Spiral Island,' off the coast of Mexico. The real island was made from over 150,000 unwanted plastic bottles.
