News from Year 3

What a great first week back for Year 3! We have really enjoyed being back in the classroom and starting our learning this half term.

In English, we have carried on looking at the book ‘Dr Xargle’s Book of Earth Hounds’. We have been focusing on different sentences openers and structures to help us write our own information texts about aliens next week.

In Maths, we have continued to focus on using the column method for subtraction. We have developed this method to include two lots of regrouping, which has been tricky. But the children have persevered and are a lot more confident with regrouping multiple times within a calculation.

In PE, we have started focusing on basketball. This week, we have practiced our passing skills, using bounce and chest passes to help pass the ball efficiently and effectively.

Don’t forget we have PE every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons so kits will be needed on those days. We also have individual school photographs on Wednesday 11th November.

Stay safe and have a lovely weekend,

Miss Battams 🙂
