Dear Brand Sparkling New Year 3,
I am so looking forward to seeing you all on Monday to start our time together in Year 3. It is very exciting!
First of all, we are going to do some activities so I can get to know you better and you can tell me all about yourself.
This term, we are reading a wonderful picture book called, 'Here We Are: Notes for living on Planet Earth' and doing lots of work based on the text. The book is by Oliver Jeffers and he does the illustrations too. Our topic this term is Ancient Egypt which is one of my favourites! So we will be historians time travelling back to the time of mummies!
You will need to wear your P.E kit to school on Tuesdays and Fridays this term. Also please remember your reusable water bottle to keep you hydrated in class. You may wish to bring a healthy snack for playtime and don't forget your packed lunch (unless you have one ordered through school).
In Year 3 you will have a scheme reading book but also a choice book from our class library.
There will be more information to follow after we have settled in together.
I can't wait to meet you all!

Hello Children and Parents,
It was wonderful to see so many of you on Wednesday for our keeping in touch hour! I loved hearing all about your lockdown and it was fantastic to listen and see your amazing happiness boxes. I could never have guessed half of the things you thought of - you are so creative. We even had purple beans which turn your tongue purple! That certainly made me happy!
I am looking forward to seeing you again this week. This time, come along and tell us something you have learned during lockdown and we can share our lockdown learning! You may even want to do a demo! Then we can play some games and have fun.
Take care and best wishes,

Happy 2020 New Year to our Year 3 community.
We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year holiday.
Once again, huge thanks for all your kind cards and gifts. The Year 3 team were very touched by your thoughts.
We are looking forward to a fun term ahead. We will be reading 'Tom's Sausage Lion' by Micheal Morpurgo so if you are looking for a home choice reading book, that would be a great choice. We use the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) as a professional teaching guide and resource.
In Maths, we are learning all about multiplication and division, following the White Rose maths scheme and resources. How are you getting on with learning your times tables? The Topmarks maths website and Professor assessor have lots of fun games to help you practise at home.
Science this term is all about forces and motion so any moving toys would be great to bring in as examples - moving toys which use pulleys, gears, magnets and hydraulics.
In history, we are learning all about the Shang Dynasty of Ancient China so any topic books from Corsham library would be very useful. Has anyone visited China? Do you know anyone who has links with this fascinating country? Perhaps they could come and visit us.
Please remember your P.E kit (indoor and outdoor), your water bottle and snack. Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday.
