Reading is really important in Year 3 and children should be reading regularly at home. We encourage your child to read every night just for ten minutes and get their reading record signed. Your child should bring in their book and reading record every day.
We encourage your child to practise their times tables every week. On the class page you will find a list of times tables apps that may be helpful. Your child has also been given a Times Tables Rockstar login which is in their reading record and a Purple Mash login which will help with their times tables.
PE – Mondays and Tuesdays
Library time– Wednesday afternoon (please bring any Library books back for Wednesday)
Times Tables and Spelling Test– Friday
Making Islamic Models
What a great end to our half term! Jupiter had a great time making different Islamic features out of clay. From Islamic prayer mats to Mosques we used our crafting and carving skills to perfect their designs. It was quite tricky to make the designs intricate but the class really persevered! Well done Jupiter!
Our Non-Chronological Reports based on a Planet
I think most of Jupiter class left school on Friday with sore hands from their busy week of writing! Jupiter have been working very hard on writing their own reports based on a planet they designed themselves. We have learnt all about technical vocabulary, learnt how to make comparisons using conjunctions and learnt how to use interesting sentence starters.
Here is a section of Benjamin’s report about his animals on his planet ‘Hexo’.
