We have been trying hard to make the days count as we enter the final week of year 3. This year has gone unbelievably quick but I have enjoyed every second with your lovely children.
This week has been jam packed with lots of learning and fun. Here’s what we have been doing…
Maths - we have continued our work on the grid method and the children are now experts!
English - we have now finished our poems and they are fabulous! The children remembered to include all the features we have learnt - alliteration, onomatopoeia, rhyme, rhythm and repetition!
Science - we had a Science day on Tuesday. We learnt about the functions of the skeleton, muscles and started to learn all about light and dark. It was a busy day!
Geography - we had a Geography afternoon on Thursday and Friday. We learnt all about Volcanoes and we were lucky enough to have Father Jim come in to school to talk to us all about the earth’s crust and how volcanoes are formed. We were on the edges of our seats as Father Jim is very knowledgeable! After this, we went outside to have a go at erupting our own volcanoes using bicarbonate of soda, vinegar, water, food colouring and washing up liquid! The children loved it!
Today, your child’s report has come home. If you would like to discuss anything with me, please make an appointment next week. I will be happy to go over any concerns you may have. Your child has also brought home a school report evaluation form where they have commented on their achievements and challenges this year. There is also a section for you to make any comments. Please can I ask you to return these next week? Thank you.
