It was lovely to have all of the children back in school this week. We hope you all had a restful holiday.
This week we have started our new topic covering light, dark and colour. We have so many aspects to learn about over the next term from cameras and solar panels to stained glass windows in churches. We are very excited about all of the opportunities this will give us to cover many curriculum objectives in fun way.
In our English work, we have started learning about writing instructions and have learned a text by heart. We will find out about text features, adapt the original text and finally write our own text with a different theme.
In Maths, we are now covering the Year 3 fractions objectives. These can be seen in the Numeracy section of the web site. As division and multiplication is such a big part of this unit, it is vital that children work on learning multiplication and division facts with instant recall at home. Your support with this is invaluable.
It looks like being a lovely weekend, so enjoy the sunshine and time with your families.
