Year 3 Weekly Update – 30/09/22

Year 3 Prayer service
We are now preparing for our prayer service on 12 October 2022. All of the children have been given a role, speaking or acting, and lines are being sent home today. Please encourage your children to practise their lines, so that they know them off by heart.
Spellings: Statutory spellings
Times tables:
This week, please could you practise the 3 times tables with your child.

This week, we have been writing a recount of our trip to Whipsnade zoo. Next week we will start looking at the features of non-chronological reports and review a model text.
In RE,  we will learn about joining the family of the Church through the sacrament of Baptism, before moving on to signs and symbols of Baptism.
Next week we will be using the web to research birds of prey and to know the difference between the web and the internet.
In Science this week we will be learning about the different food groups and what constitutes a balanced diet. Next week we will be learning about the different kinds of skeletons.
In PSHE next week, we will be continuing with TenTen, Module 2 Unit 1, Religious understanding: Jesus my friend, the story sessions.
Please remember there is a Parent portal on the TenTen website which will enable you to view the materials we use in school.

The children have Forest school every Wednesday this half term. Please ensure that the children have wellies and appropriate wet weather gear in the event of bad weather.
