From the staff in Year 3: Mrs Kennedy, with Mrs Abendstern, Mrs Walker and Mrs Pullen (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Williamson, with Mrs Anderson.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! WE HOPE YOU HAD A PEACEFUL CHRISTMAS AND A RESTFUL BREAK.
This half term we're learning about 'Fables,' multiplication, time and money. Science is all about the human body, bones and all! Check out the humorous bone which Mrs Kennedy has broken...oww!
Things you could do to help your children this half term: practise telling the time to the nearest minute (analogue clock), use money - 'If I spend £2.55, what is my change from £5?' Keep going with knowing your 3x 4x 8x tables... some children have mastered them brilliantly now.
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.
