Please help us by looking at telling the time with your children at home. Year 3 need to be able to tell and write the time from a digital clock, an analogue clock, including using Roman Numerals, in both 12 and 24 hour times. They need to know how many seconds are in a minute, how many minutes in an hour, how many hours in a day, how many days in a week and how many weeks and months are in a year. Don't forget this year is a leap Year too.
Welcome back to Term 3.
We will be looking at Healthy Eating as part of our Design Technology Topic this term.
We have been reading lots of leaflets and making a list of the features of a leaflet.
This week we are designing out own leaflets in Literacy to persuade people to think about their eating habits.
Watch this space for examples of our work.
#savepaper The school is working hard to reduce use and waste of paper. If you would like copies of documents please download them to look at them or email one of us for an electronic copy.

Year 3 Bloggers
We know that Bloggs can be seen by anyone who searches for them.
So, we need to be careful.
We can share our thoughts, feelings and ideas but must not be unkind.
Keira said, 'My best bit was when we went into the Three Bears' Room because there were lots of beds there. It was really snugly and I fell asleep.'
Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter.
One of our tweets has been seen by 22000 people. It taught us to be super careful online as anyone can see a tweet.
Update! This one tweet has been seen 59,000 times now. Stay safe online.
Year 3 bloggers
Yesterday, we went to the Story Museum in Oxford.
We would like to tell you about one of the rooms there. Here are some clues:
- We put on dressing gowns
- We cleaned our teeth with massive toothbrushes
- There were three beds
- One small one
- One middle sized
- One gigantic bed
Have you guessed yet?
It was the Three Bears' house

In Maths we enjoyed our week of inspirational maths linked to YouCubed.
All children in key stage 2 are expected to read at home at least 3 times a week. This needs to be recorded in their reading records so we can count points towards the end of term homework reward. If you child does not have their record, please note down the date, what they read and who heard them on a scrap of paper and we will still count it towards the reward.
Children are also responsible for changing their own reading books and they are given opportunities to do this every day.
We will be giving out a spellings list every Friday to be learnt (and handed in) by the following Friday. These are incredibly important as your child is learning a wealth of tricky words and spelling patterns to help them through primary school and to succeed in secondary school. We appreciate your efforts in encouraging and supporting your child.
Spellings are sent out weekly. Please check you child's book bag.
PE will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays and every child is expected to have a full PE kit which consists of a t-shirt, shorts, trousers, jumper and trainers or daps. Please ensure every item is labelled with your child's name as many children are the same size and have kit from the same shop - it can be very difficult to tell who owns lost property!
This term we will have visitors from Bath Rugby FC teaching us about healthy eating. We are learning about food groups including some of the foods that fit within them and how they help our bodies. We will also have an active rugby session to learn skills fpr the sport.
