Let's Learn our 4 and 8 Times Table! - 14.10.19
In Year 3 your child needs to learn and become fluent with both their 4 and 8 times tables. Currently we are working hard on both our 4's and our 8's and are encouraging the children to practise them whenever they can both in school and at home. The children are familiar with the following musical videos to help them learn their 4 and 8 times table. We would really appreciate it if you could support us and your child by reminding them to log on and have a go. Not only will it help them become fluent, it is also lots of fun and an opportunity to have a 'Good Old Sing Song' together.
We hope you like it as much as we do! Wonder who will 'still be standing' by the end of it!?
Next week the children will be entering their third and final week of their current explanation text topic in English. To ensure that they are ready and prepared to produce written work to the best of their ability, can we kindly ask that you encourage your child to read and learn their chosen tree facts from the sheets below. Your child will also have brought home a printed copy.
Please see below 3 images showing facts about 'Palm Trees'. The children are currently busy learning how to write an explanation text. In preparation for next week, after which children will be ready to write their own text independently, we are encouraging the children to spend some time at home reading and learning the facts about palm trees detailed on the sheets.
The children have been learning these in class so will already be familiar with them.
Thank you for your on-going support.
F.A.O Parents/Carers: A Polite Request - 14.10.19
Our Annual Harvest Festival will soon see our Year 1, 2 and year 3 pupils visiting St Stephens in Woodville to give thanks and offerings in celebration.
In preparation for our annual food offerings to the church and local community, can we kindly ask that you donate any non-perishable items. Here in class 3 we will have an area in the classroom where the children can place their food items ready to donate at Harvest time.
CAN WE ALSO TAKE THIS OPPORUNTITY TO REMIND CHILDREN TO PRACTISE THEIR HARVEST SONGS AT HOME. Children should have a copy of a song sheet which they were given a copy of to take home.

Our Star of the Week!
13.9.2019 - Week 2
This week's star of the week is Leo! This week Leo has really impressed Miss Aullak by showing his feelings and opening up on 'Mindfulness Day'. He demonstrated that it is ok to talk to your teacher or adult about how you are feeling and that is makes you feel a lot better.
Well done Leo! Miss Aullak, Mrs Archbold and Ms Litchfield are extremely proud of you!
Well done to this week's 'Award Winners!'
Our Mathematician of the week is Leonardo, well done! He has made fantastic progress this week while adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers. He demonstrated confidence both on the carpet and in his work at the table.
Our Writer of the week is Sophie, well done! She has produced some really brilliant writing this week in English while planning for her own explanation text next week.
Our Reader of the week is Stefan, well done! He not only reads with awesome expression which really brings the books to life, but also shows a very good understanding of the text he reads by answering questions and making predictions. Keep on reading at home!
Today Year 3 visited the Hindu Temple in Derby. An informative and enjoyable time was had by all! The children in class 3 were very well behaved and were brilliant role models for our school. Thank you to all of the children for making us PROUD!
The children were able to observe a prayer session which was very interesting, take part in a question and answer session with a member of the Derby Open Centre team where the children were able to show off their knowledge and understanding of Hinduism and also had the opportunity to look at and dress up in traditional Sari and kurtn clothing.
Have a look at some of the fantastic pictures below from this morning's trip!
8.10.19 - The Children conduct a Litter Survey around School.
Today, class 3 put on their coats, grabbed a clipboard and pencil and in pairs, completed a litter survey around the school grounds. The children, used a 'Tally Chart' to record their findings before returning to the classroom to both discuss their learning walk and to answer questions about what they had found out.

This morning, year 3 were lucky enough to join the infant children in the school hall and watch an amazing performance of the classic tale 'Pinocchio!' All children were really well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed the show. It was a real treat! Thank you to the three performers from the Image Theatre Company for visiting our school. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
18.9.19m - A Huge Thank you to all parents/carers!
Class 3 teachers and teaching assistants would like to say a massive thank you for collecting bottle tops for your children. We really appreciate your efforts! Thanks to you, your children have been able to create a wonderful recycling display in school along our year 3 corridor.
We think you will agree that it has brightened up our learning area and also promotes the importance of recycling!
Please encourage and help your child to learn the current English story or text by asking them to read it aloud using their story telling actions and the story map below.
Every 3 weeks, the story map image will be updated so if your child does not have their story map books with them, they will be able to log onto our class page on the school website to support their learning in class.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Why Does a City Need an Oak Tree? - Explanation Text.
Class 3 go on a recycling walk!
Today class 3 went on a walk in pairs around Woodville to locate different types of recycling bins and learn about what they are, their uses and where to locate them.
The children used a map of Woodville and were able to mark where the recycling bins were located and what materials could be put in each bin.
(This learning walk forms part of our current Human Plant/Recycling topic).
