Week 3 of Term 3
This week we have been busy collecting information to write our newspaper reports. The children have enjoyed understanding the features of a report and have practised writing some fantastic sentences they want to include. We have a specific focus on possessive apostrophes for singular and plural nouns- challenge your child to tell you about one in their reading book!  

In Maths, we have been starting money and the children have worked hard to understand how to calculate change in our classroom shops.

A busy start to Term 3

Year 3 enjoyed the process of writing thank you letters and posting them. We hope you enjoyed receiving their letters just as much!

Our Ancient Egyptian topic is well underway and the children are really finding it fascinating! Many of them have come into school with their own information books and interesting facts from their own research done at home. 

We are all looking forward to seeing the range of models, posters and information that your children put together for their museum exhibit on Monday 11th February at our Night at the Museum exhibition after school.


Our trip to the theatre to see the Awful Egyptians was fantastic! The children loved the show, particularly the 3D effects and they were able to share all the new facts they had learnt during the show back in school.
