Science Investigation

This week, in science, the children have been investigating water resistance.

 

Ever tried running through water? It’s hard work! We discovered that water resistance can slow objects passing through it. The children tried out different shapes in order to change the surface area of their object to make its fall the fastest or the slowest.

Balancing in P.E.

This week the children in 3 Oak have been working on addition of 3 digit numbers and ones, tens or hundreds. They have also been completing some problem solving activities.

 

Can you solve the following problem?

 

2 dojos will be given if you bring the answer in to class this week.

 

Put one digit in each box to make the list of numbers in order from smallest to largest.

In English the children have looked at the different features in a poem and have practised writing some poetic sentences.

 

We've also been doing some balances in P.E. Have a look below at some of the photographs.

Well done to Finley, Louis and Lucas for receiving their Steel Award Certificate for collecting 250 dojos.

We've had another busy week this week. The children have worked on the prefixes 'un' and 'dis' and they have investigated adding these prefixes to various root words. In English they have worked on completing a diary entry based on the quality text we are currently reading. In maths we have been adding 2 and 3 digit numbers using place value.

HOMEWORK

Homework will be sent home on Fridays. Each week there will be a maths homework and an English homework along with weekly spellings to learn. The homework book will need to be returned with the completed homework every Wednesday. Spelling tests will take place on Fridays. Dojos will be given for completed homework.  

 

HOME READING

As you are aware there is an expectation that children read 3 times a week at home; to support the reading that they do at school. We ask that children read books, newspapers, magazines etc. and we would like this to be recorded in their reading diaries. Reading is essential for a child’s development and children who read for enjoyment regularly, not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures. Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out what’s printed on the page. Reading records will be collected in and checked on Fridays and children will be rewarded with Dojos if they complete their three reads.

 

P.E.

PE days will be on Monday and Thursday this term. This may change due to such things as the weather so we would be very grateful if you could bring your PE kit on a Monday and leave it until Friday. Please ensure earrings are removed on PE days.

 

We hope your child has a happy and successful year in year 3.
